Curriculum Framework

Aligned to MOE’s direction, our science curriculum seeks to enable students to see science as meaningful and useful. Through the curriculum, the spirit of scientific inquiry will be inculcated. The conduct of inquiry will be founded on these three integral domains of (a) Knowledge, Understanding and Application, (b) Skills and Processes and (c) Ethics and Attitudes, which are essential to the practice of science. Students will explore issues and questions that are related to the roles played by science in daily life, society and the environment.

Key Approach

Teaching and learning of science through inquiry approach. Our teachers make use of multiple representations as visual stimuli to engage students in activities and processes to study the natural and physical world around them. To provide support for the students with the literacy demands of their science lessons, teachers adopt a three-stage framework: Observe, Link and Connect.
