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 strive to provide a student-centred curriculum that is anchored on Structured Inquiry.

Knowledge, skills and attitudes in Science are nurtured through engaging pupils in hands-on activities, experiential learning like learning journeys and other programmes that expose pupils beyond the textbook.  We are highly committed in exposing our pupils to science and transdisciplinary related subject matter through various experiential experiences.

At MFPS, we emphasize explicit acquisition of skills through the spiral approach.  Our curriculum is specially customised to teach process skills and answering techniques.  At each level, we revisit skills and techniques that have been taught at the lower level and build on new skills at higher levels.
