Core Programme

The teaching and learning of Science is based on the inquiry-based approach in which students are engaged in meaningful activities and processes to develop fundamental science concepts, principles and theories, as well as science process skills and attitudes. Students learn through hands-on experimentation, collaborative learning and self-exploration. Learning stations and outdoor learning have been included in the Science curriculum to enthuse, engage, empower and enrich student learning in the school.


To further enhance the learning of Science through inquiry, teachers employ Visible Thinking through a set of thinking routines, to develop a culture of making thinking more explicit in the classroom such that the process and product of student thinking can be examined, critiqued and reflected upon.
