Two new science resources based on findings from NMSSA
Two new science resources are now available for free download from the NMSSA website. The resources are based on findings from NMSSA’s assessment of science at Year 4 and Year 8 and have been developed with the support of the Ministry of Education.
   
Resource 1: Science guide for teachers
 

The science guide for teachers is a series of posters with ideas that teachers can use to support their students’ science learning at curriculum levels 1 to 4+. Each poster focuses on a curriculum level and describes one or more of the science capabilities students are developing, why these capabilities are important, and the kinds of learning experiences that can help them progress.

Resource 2: What children are learning in Science: A guide for whānau
 

This colourful resource provides information for families and whānau about what children are learning in science at curriculum levels 1 to 4+. It provides examples of the kinds of capabilities children are developing in science, explains why they are important, and gives ideas of what families and whānau can do with their child to support what they are learning at school. The resource can be displayed as a series of posters or printed as a small booklet.
