Science

Learning Outcomes

To nurture our pupils to be inquirers and engaged learners who can work collaboratively to explore the natural and physical world.

Teaching Approaches

To achieve the desired Learning Outcomes, we provide several learner-centred programmes that promote engaged learning through the use of thinking routines and ICT tools.

Knowledge, skills and attitudes in Science are nurtured through engaging pupils in Inquiry-Based Learning (IBL) activities, Learning Journeys and various enrichment and elective programmes. Pupils are provided with multiple opportunities to demonstrate the application of Science concepts and process skills. Engaging activities, based on the 3 learner-centred pedagogical approaches, are designed to meet pupils’ learning needs.
