Science and Technology

ln this Area of Learning and Experience, our learners will have the opportunity to explore the disciplines of Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Design and Technology and digital technologies. Through these disciplines, our learners will have the opportunity to become curious and creative individuals. In lessons, our learners will explore Science and Technology to develop practical skills and knowledge, develop their ability to ask meaningful questions and make informed judgments that impact their own behaviours. They will also understand how Design thinking and engineering offer technical and creative ways to meet society’s needs and wants as well as recognising that Computation is the foundation for our digital world.

By clicking on the links below, you’ll see a detailed overview of our themes for each discipline of Science and Technology over three terms. These are a summary of what matters in the AoLE and information on the work to be undertaken in each discipline. This includes what is being taught, why it’s being taught and how learning will happen. In order to help you as parents and guardians, you’ll find a list of key vocabulary to enrich your child’s language and communication skills. There is also information for you on how to support your child’s education in this particular AoLE.
