Curriculum Level 3 & 4

Curriculum Level/Year 3 & 4
Integrated topics

Integrated topics are planned over a two year cycle and incorporate Humanities, Science, Technology and Health. Students participate in a variety of class, group and individual projects.  They are introduced to general project skills then encouraged to complete tasks using their own creative style.

Research projects give students opportunities to extend and enhance their learning. They learn to ask questions, search for answers and absorb new information.

Science

All Level Three students enjoy Science activities based on each term’s topic. A rotation of science activities is organised for the Level Three classes each term to give teachers and students the opportunity to fully explore and experiment ‘hands-on’ with a particular aspect of the topic. Students are encouraged to use investigative inquiry skills, and apply technology to projects and constructions.
