Each Science pupil, an inquirer, an innovator, and an environmentalist.
(i) 5Es Instructional Model
The department leverages the 5Es instructional model of Engage, Explore, Explain, Explore and Evaluate in Science lessons to make learning authentic, relevant, and exciting for our boys.
(ii) Hands-on Activities
The department uses hands-on activities to help pupils deepen their knowledge of the various concepts learnt in class. Lively classroom discussions and use of educational videos also help to promote scientific thinking.
(iii) Environment as the Third Teacher
The department actively capitalises on various outdoor and natural spaces to deepen students’ learning and to inspire the love for Science. Learning journeys and trails are also organised for students yearly.
(iv) Alternative Assessment
Science practical examinations (P3 to P6) are carried out yearly as a form of alternative assessment to deepen and widen students’ learning.
Parents can help in the following areas
(i) Encourage curiosity by asking questions
Parents can engage your child through asking questions to stimulate his thinking. Allow him to explore different forms of answers and to come up with his own questions.
Parents can also help by ensuring your son files his worksheets properly. You may also encourage him to plan and adhere to a study schedule for revision of Science to consolidate his learning.
