John Butler Primary College


Science education empowers students to be questioning, reflective and critical thinkers. It is a dynamic, collaborative and creative human endeavour arising from our desire to make sense of the world.


In the Australian Curriculum, students will be taught physical, chemical, earth and space and biological science.


At John Butler Primary College, students will learn to investigate, understand and communicate their ideas. They will develop a range of science inquiry skills such as ‘Questioning and predicting’, ‘Planning and conducting’, ‘Processing and analysing data and information’ and ‘Communicating’.


Students will enjoy hands-on experiences, be creative and discover answers to their questions. In the early years, our students will talk about and explore the changes that impact their world, such as weather and seasons. By the end of year three, students will conduct investigations to find answers to their questions. They will research and observe how living things grow, classify animals and describe lifecycles. Students will understand about the importance of water, how to mix different materials and explain their findings.
