Subject Areas

Along with all New South Wales schools, The Scots Junior School teaches the NSW curriculum. You canScots School May website access this curriculum via the NESA (NSW Education Standards Authority) website.

The disciplines covered in NSW primary schools are English, Mathematics, Science, Technology, Human Society and its Environment (HSIE), Creative Arts, Personal Development, Health and Physical Education (PDHPE) and Languages.

Our Units of Inquiry take a transdisciplinary approach – interweaving skills, knowledge and concepts from many disciplines in the one unit of work. This results in a deep understanding of knowledge, greater skill acquisition, and connections being made in a real-world context. In a PYP school, we mimic real life, acknowledging that skills and facts are not learnt in isolation. Research shows us this approach results in greater student engagement, recall of skills and knowledge, and increased ability to transfer classwork to new situations.
