At Bonbeach Primary School, we follow a guided Inquiry approach. Over a two-year rotating cycle, students explore a range of topics which address the Science, Health, Humanities and Design and Technologies curriculum within the F-10 Victorian Curriculum.
Through the Inquiry approach, students are provided with opportunities to reflect on their prior knowledge, pose questions or wonderings about what they would like to find out and explore these wonderings through a range of approaches including whole class explicit teaching, small group and individual tasks, research and projects. At the end of a unit, students are provided with opportunities to reflect on, share or present what they have found out.
Students are often provided with opportunities to participate extracurricular activities such as excursions or incursions that compliment the Inquiry Theme each term.
