Objectives / Goals
|P1 and P2|
|Integration of Science into P1 and P2 STELLAR
P1 and P2 Learning Journeys to the Singapore Science CentreOur P1 and P2 students visit the Singapore Science Centre and engage in hands-on activities via workshops to learn more about the garden habitat (P1) and the world of tools (P2). These experiences concretise what they learn in the STELLAR curriculum and piques their curiosity about Science and the world around them, before they start learning Science at P3.
|P3 and P4|
|P3 Learning Journey to the Singapore Zoo
Our P3 students visit the Singapore Zoo, where they get to witness different animals, including endangered animals, and learn more about the animals’ lifestyles and efforts to conserve them. This learning experience also paves the way as they embark on P3 Project Work to advocate for the conservation of animals.
|P4 Science Excite Programme
The P4 Science Excite serves to bring Science to life, stretching students’ learning in Science and sparking their curiosity about the environment they live in. Through Science Demonstrations, Group Work and Experiments, students get to apply Science concepts in a hands-on manner to real life context. This includes application of matter, magnets, heat and light. Students also get to witness exciting phenomena that are caused by Science.
|P4 Science E2K
The programme aims to develop scientific inquiry process skills among students, as well as nurture other important 21st century competencies such as resilience and resourcefulness, critical and inventive thinking, and effective communication skills. It introduces students to advanced science concepts through an inquiry-based approach.During the E2K lessons, students go through the same process that scientists use to generate knowledge in Science. Through collaborative learning and guidance provided by the teacher, students practise scientific thinking and reasoning, develop confidence and independence in carrying out scientific inquiry as well as scientific habits, attitudes and dispositions.
|P5 and P6|
|P5 Learning Journey to the Marina Barrage
Our P5 students visit the Marina Barrage where they learn more about the Singapore Water Story and visit the Sustainable Singapore Gallery to learn how they can play a part to create a liveable and sustainable Singapore. There is also a hands-on workshop where they will get a chance to try upcycling of materials.
|P5 Science Engage and P6 Science Explore
Building up from the P4 Science Excite, the P5 Science Engage and P6 Science Explore serve to bring Science to life, stretching students’ learning in Science and sparking their curiosity about the environment they live in. Through Science Demonstrations, Group Work and Experiments, students get to apply Science concepts in a hands-on manner to real life context. This includes application of concepts learnt in electricity, energy, forces and adaptations. Students also get to witness exciting phenomena that are caused by Science.
|P6 Learning Journey to Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum
Our P6 students visit the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum where they will explore the rich biodiversity present in the world and learn more about adaptations that have enabled animal species to survive in nature till date. They will also attend a hands-on workshop where they will work with specimens of various animals to deepen their understanding on adaptations.
Project Green is a whole-school initiative to encourage teachers and students to practice the “3 Rs” of Reducing, Reusing and Recycling. Staff and students are encouraged to recycle papers and plastics in school, and a weekly collection drive is available for them to find out how much they have recycled. Student advocates also participate to raise awareness of the importance of conserving the environment to their peers through presentations and games.
|Internal Amazing Flying Machine (open to P4-P6)
In conjunction with the annual Singapore Amazing Flying Machine Competition (SAFMC), our school holds a mini competition involving P4 to P6 students. The students will be given the rare opportunity to represent their class in folding the paper planes that can fly the furthest and can glide in the air for the longest duration. Winners from the school-based competition will have a chance to represent the school in the national competition organised by Science Centre Singapore.
Our multisensory garden was revamped in 2019 to provide a vibrant and multisensory learning experience for our students. Just like botanical gardens around the world, we have different mini gardens in our very multisensory garden to stimulate the different senses in our body. They include the butterfly garden, perfume garden, fruit garden, vegetable garden, herbs & species garden and rhapsody garden with musical instruments. We launched our garden on 13 Mar 2020, with students performing a musical piece in the rhapsody garden and the planting of seedlings in the vegetable garden. Other students participated via a live telecast in their classrooms. The garden will enhance the teaching and learning of Science by providing an authentic environment for our students to appreciate the beauty of biodiversity.
