Science at JHPS

At John Henry Primary School, Science encourages your children to be critical thinkers, and to be curious about our world. Focussing heavily on the ‘Science Inquiry Skills’ within the Victorian Curriculum, students will learn how to pose questions, make predictions, conduct experiments in a safe manner, and analyse the results. While learning about the scientific method, students explore a range of topics which cover a number of science understandings within the Biological, Chemical, Physical, and Earth and space sciences.

Students love coming to Science to visit our school animals (including turtles, fish, yabbies and chickens) and engage in, fun hands-on activities! The Science program at John Henry Primary School also offers opportunities for students to participate in extra-curricular activities and leadership endeavours, such as the ‘I Sea, I Care’ program.
