Years 7–10 Life Skills content

The Years 7–10 Life Skills content forms the basis for learning opportunities. Students will not be required to complete all of the content to demonstrate achievement of an outcome.

The Board of Studies NSW has identified important learning for all students that has been embedded in the descriptions of content, including the Years 7–10 Life Skills content, across the syllabuses. Find further information about the learning across the curriculum content in the K–10 Syllabus.

Content within the Science Years 7–10 Syllabus has been organised by strands. Find further information about the organisation of content.

Practical experiences

Where appropriate, students should have the opportunity to develop their skills in Working Scientifically by participating in a range of practical experiences to develop their understanding and demonstrate achievement of Science Years 7–10 Life Skills outcomes. The Working Scientifically processes may be selected and integrated into any additional Life Skills content undertaken and can provide students with meaningful opportunities to engage with scientific concepts.
