Primary Connections at Augusta Park Primary School

'Primary Connections: Linking science with literacy' is an innovative approach to teaching and learning which aims to enhance primary school teachers’ confidence and competence for teaching science.

Every teacher in South Australia must complete training in Primary Connections in 2010 and some teachers at Augusta Park Primary were so keen they attended training on a Sunday.

So expect you children to come home with stories of dissecting plants, creating insects and the much more. If you want to learn more about Primary Connections please visit the Web site http://www.science.org.au/primaryconnections/about/ and encourage you children in the sciences. Watch a Documentary with them, Borrow some none fiction from the library and try some experiments at home, having them help cooking is a good start in the sciences.
