Fungi – Yeast and Mould

Strand: Science Understanding
Sub-strand: Biological sciences

Content descriptors:
The growth and survival of living things are affected by physical conditions
of their environment (ACSSU094 - Scootle )

§ Living things are classified into six kingdoms. Fungi are classified into
their own kingdom.
§ The three types of fungi are moulds, yeasts and mushrooms.
§ Decomposition of natural recycling is a result of fungi and bacteria.
Fungi feeds on and processes dead plant and animal remains.
§ There are good and bad micro-organisms (yeasts and moulds)
§ A mould is a type of fungus that grows in damp, warm conditions as a
result of poor ventilation.
§ Mould can cause health risks including inflamed airways linking to
damaging results. It is also harmful when some food becomes mouldy,
e.g bread.
§ Some fungi can be eaten. The benefits of mould include enrichment of
flavours (blue cheese), edible mushrooms and antibiotics (penicillin)
§ The renowned antibiotic penicillin is derived from a common fungi
Penicillium notatum.
§ Yeast is a type of fungus that undergoes fermentation. A relatable
example of fermentation is the process of yeast making dough rise.

Electrical Circuits
Strand: Science Understanding
Sub-strand: Physical sciences

Content descriptors:
Electrical energy can be transferred and transformed in electrical circuits
and can be generated from a range of sources (ACSSU097 - Scootle )

Week Concepts:
4-8 § An electric current is the flow of electrons around an electric circuit
§ Electrons contain negative electric charges
§ There are three types of electric circuits; closed/complete (working),
open circuits (not working) and short circuits.
§ A complete circuit occurs when an electrical current flows from the
battery to the component (i.e light bulb, TV) and back to the battery
again without any breaks.
§ An open circuit occurs when the connection is broken and the flow of
electricity stops
§ In a short circuit, the current travels along an unintended path of low
resistance due to unintended contact between components (flow in
wrong direction). Low resistance can cause high electricity flow and
deliver a large amount of electricity in a short period of time.
§ Short circuits can destroy the power supply and cause a fire.
§ There are key symbols to represent each component of a complete

Reversible & Irreversible Materials

Changes to materials can be reversible or irreversible (ACSSU095 -
Scootle )

1-5 Concepts:
§ A reversible change is a physical change that can be undone and the
original materials can be recovered.
§ A reversible change can be achieved through dissolving, evaporating,
melting, cooling, freezing, mixing and condensing.
§ An irreversible change is a permanent chemical change that cannot be
reversed as the original materials mix to form a new material, e.g
§ Reversible changes can be used in recycling
§ Water is recycled using the process of desalination. Desalination is the
technological process of removing salt from salt water using reverse
§ Recycled paper is achieved through a process involving pulp, water,
chemicals and heat.

molten aluminium liquid before reuse.

Content descriptors:
Sudden geological changes or extreme weather conditions can affect
Earth’s surface (ACSSU096)

4-8 § Volcanoes are a natural way for the Earth to cool down by releasing its
internal heat and pressure.
§ The force and movement of tectonic plates cause pressure to build up
inside the Earth and magma to rise through cracks in the Earth’s crust,
forming new land.
§ Volcanoes are categorized into three categories; active, dormant and
§ Volcanoes come in many different forms, shapes and sizes. They are
divided into three main types; composite (strato), shield and caldero
§ The ‘Ring of Fire’ is currently home to 75% of the world’s volcanoes.
§ Volcanic eruptions impact the surrounding environment both positively
and negatively, e.g rejuvenates the eco-system, provides very rich
nutrients to the surrounding soil, effect global warming causing the
world to become cooler. Moreover, the lava can damage infrastructure
and the volcanic ash can cause respiratory issues, eye problems and
skin irritation.

Thinking and working:

- Inferring how the Earth releases internal heat and communicating
different predictions
- Observing and engaging in visual representations of the causes of
geological chances, i.e volcanoes.
- Conducting experiments to understand how tectonic plates trigger
- Classifying volcanoes and constructing models based on their features
- Planning and conducting investigations to collect data on the effect of
volcanoes on the locals, environment and Earth’s surface.
- Processing and analysing data based on current news reports on
erupting volcanoes to inform inquiry research
- Communicating findings through appropriate representations and
