Science

Aims :

The Primary Science Syllabus aims to inculcate the spirit of scientific inquiry through knowledge, skills and attitudes based on 5 main themes of Cycles, Diversity, Energy, Interactions and Systems. These themes provide opportunities for students to apply concepts and integrate skills and processes to inquire about things and phenomena happening around them. 

Objectives: 

1. Provide primary students with experiences which build on their interest in and stimulate their curiosity about their environment
2. Provide students with basic scientific terms and concepts to help them understand themselves and the world around them
3. Prepare students towards using scientific knowledge and methods in making personal decisions
4. Help students appreciate how science influences people and the environment

Through the programme, Science ideas and concepts are introduced to the students through the inductive approach and students get to work on research topics and protocols, replicating the creation process of scientists.
