With the emphasis on inquiry-based learning, green spaces within the school compound have been converted into learning corners for students. The trails are made up of stations that allow students to explore and discover for themselves more about plants. All the trails are designed based on the Science syllabus topics and the process skills are covered across each level.
To further encourage self-directed learning and communication skills, the students are using QR codes through IPad to study the various plants in different stations and to carry out their own investigations and collaborate with one another in the research.
P3 Hydroponics Programme
The programme aims to engage students in inorganic way of farming. It provides students experiential learning so that they can understand the functions of plant parts.
NeWater Visitor Centre Learning Journey
The Primary 4 students will also go for a learning
journey to NeWater Centre to learn more about
the importance of water conservation.
Process Skill Learning Package
Explicit teaching on the various skills for Bloom's taxonomy will be conducted as part of the curriculum. The process skills covered will be progressive, starting from classifying to evaluating.
The Science department has embarked on E2K Science enrichment programme for students who demonstrate strong interest and ability in Science. This programme is adapted from Israel's E2K Programme which is developed by the Israel Centre for Excellence through Education (ICEE).
During E2K lessons, students learn Science by going through the same process that scientists use to generate knowledge in Science. Through collaborative learning and guidance provided by the teacher, students practice scientific thinking and reasoning, develop confidence and independence in carrying out scientific inquiry as well as scientific habits, attitudes and dispositions.
School-wide Environmental Programmes
In line with the school value "Care", the programmes aim to inculcate strong green practices in school. The students are strongly encourages to start from self in taking care of the school environment. Various recycling efforts are constantly carried out like Bring Your Own Newspapers on every Wednesday. The school environmental champions also reach out to the public to convey the recycling messages. We commemorate Earth Day annually. We aim to increase everyone's awareness about the environment as well as to demonstrate the environmental protection measures.
In 2016, our students had a meaningful time engaging the residents of Punggol during the Punggol North Eco Carnival on 30th July. The students shared with the Minister of Education, Mr Ng Chee Meng, and other visitors on the negative impact of plastics and disposables on the environment.
In 2016, the Primary 4 students had the opportunity to deepen their understanding of the relationship between the flora and fauna in our school garden. Students headed outdoors to observe and explore the various types of plants in the garden and eco-pond. The students had a lot of fun and also learnt the importance of caring for our environment.
Partnering with Our Parents - A Science Workshop for Parents
We value our partnership with parents as we believe that parents influence and support their children's academic learning. We conduct parent workshop annually to keep our parents updated on some key strategies that will aid in their children's learning towards Science. This year, Primary 5 parents have come together to acquire knowledge and skills necessary to help their children in the learning of Science.
