Curriculum Framework

curriculum framework

The school’s Science Curriculum is guided by the MOE Science Curriculum Framework. Central to the Framework is the conduct of inquiry, founded on three integral domains of (a) Knowledge, Understanding and Application, (b) Skills & Processes and (c) Ethics & Attitudes. The curriculum design seeks to enable pupils to view the pursuit of Science as meaningful and useful. Inquiry is thus guided by knowledge, issues and questions that relate to the roles played by Science in daily life, society and the environment.

Department Programmes

Our Science programmes are structured to provide opportunities for our pupils to explore, investigate and discover knowledge. We want our pupils to develop attitudes which encourage them to be curious, persevering and concerned about their surroundings. We seek to fuel this spirit of inquiry and ultimately want our pupils to enjoy Science and value the discipline as an important tool in helping them understand and relate to their natural and physical world.

Extension Programmes

E2K Programme for P4 & P5

Selected P4 and P5 pupils were given opportunities to engage in scientific investigations involving advanced science concepts. The E2K sessions enabled pupils to engage in scientific inquiry that helped them develop the habits, attitudes and dispositions scientists possess as well as to gain 21st century competencies such as critical and inventive thinking and effective communication skills. The different experiments exposed them to various science apparatus. Working in teams allowed pupils to overcome challenges when they encountered problems in their experiments too.
