    Hi Helen

    I agree with Joy completely that it is hard to separate out the different capabilities. However, I do think it would be really good to focus your science inquiries on capabilities rather than contextual strands. When the science capabilities were developed the dream was that they would help teachers refocus their teaching of science. Many of the teachers I have worked with have found foregrounding a particular capability initially is great for building their own understanding of that capability. Really happy to talk more about this - and I am quite often in Northland if you want to talk face to face. The "I see, I think, I wonder" strategy Joy mentions is a great starting place - and the recent Connected journals focus on the various capabilities.
