Our Science Learning Expo


This term in Inquiry we have been investigating ‘What is Science’. We looked at many different types of Science, visited Avila’s Science Lab, had a Scientist come in and speak with our class and carried out a few science experiments.

To go further with our inquiry each of us undertook a personal inquiry into an area of Science that interested us. Students choose to research Biology, Zoology, Chemistry, Physics, Astronomy, Marine Biology, Archaeology, Gemology, and Geology. We had to write an information report about our chosen Science and create a presentation sharing our knowledge of both our Science and a Scientist in that field.

Finally we invited our parents, teachers and students at our school to attend our Learning Expo so we could share our new knowledge and understandings with everyone. Click the link below to see photos from our learning expo:

    WOW! Lucky ducks!!! You guys get to learn about atoms and quarks and radioactivity and the periodic table in Year 3 and 4!! I’m probably only going to learn about them in secondary. 🙁 :'(
    Can’t believe it’s been three years since I was in Year 3 in Holy Family…
    Miss you everyone….

    Dear 3/4D,
    Thats a great video on our awesome epic and cool sciences.
    I also like the visit to Avila video too. I thought it was fabulous finding out all our facts about our sciences my chosen science was Archaeology. The purpose of archaeology is to learn more about past societies and the development of the human race.

    From you classmate John

    Dear Miss Dickson and 3/4D,
    I see we had a lot of fun learning about our chosen sciences.
    My favourite sciences were Archaeology, Primatology, Physics and chemistry.
    I liked Freddy and Ryan’s experiment.
    Freddy’s experiment involved matches which is fire so if fire is near us or you are using matches be very careful.
    I thought Ryan’s experiment was cool because it involved colour and a star.

    My favourite moment was when we went to see other people’s presentation.
    I learnt Physics is the study of matter and motion.
    Physics helps the world by different types of subject like gravity, how things work and many more subjects.
    Science is important because you can make discoveries and laws.
    Stephen Hawking discovered black holes.

    Hi Miss Dickson ,

    my favourite moment was when we got to say things and show a slide show or something
    I did learn about my chosen science
    because if you did not know anything about science you had to know a lot about science that you got

    Dear Miss Dickson,
    My favourite moment from the learning expo was looking at what other people had decided to study and I also really enjoyed watching everyone else’s experiments. They were a lot more clever and creative than I expected!

    Dear Miss Dickson,
    I decided to study Gemology the study of gems, rocks an minerals and I learnt that gemologists can save lives since a part of Gemology is Volcanology and they make sure that at least a fort night before an eruption so that the community would be safe and evacuated so no one would get hurt.
