Years 3 to 6 – Making Connections

In Years 3 to 6, student learning shifts towards making connections socially and academically.

Students make real-world connections as they respond to authentic problems and they take action in the community. They take increased responsibility for their learning as they participate in team sports, social service, performance and enrichment opportunities.

In addition to the specialist subjects, the integrated curriculum includes Science, Geography, History, Civics and Citizenship, Digital and Design Technologies, Personal and Social Skills and Health.

Integrated inquiry units help students learn about:

  • Being both an individual and being part of society
  • The ways people interact with each other and their environments
  • Cultures other than their own
  • Ways to use science and technology to explore and improve the world
  • Working collaboratively to solve real-world problems and contribute to the School and wider community.
