Every Fuchunian, a Curious Inquirer
To nurture our students into confident learners who enjoy and value science as an important tool to explore the increasingly technologically-driven world.
We believe that Science education for our students involves more than just the basic concepts of science. We aim to provide an all-round school experience which can equip our students with the skills to be able to use scientific knowledge for problem solving and tap on evidence to draw meaningful conclusions to understand their world better. Hence, our curriculum supports pupils in the development of reasoning and analytical skills, decision and problem solving skills, flexibility to respond to different contexts and possessing an open and inquiring mind that is willing to explore new territories and learn new things.
(i) Support & Strengthen
Central to the Primary Science curriculum framework is the inculcation of the spirit of scientific inquiry and our pupils are given differentiated support in their inquiry based lessons to enable them to grasp scientific concepts. Our Science teachers provide varying levels of scaffold depending on the learning needs of their pupils.
We aim to provide a learning environment that will encourage and challenge our pupils to develop their sense of inquiry and at the same time, develop skills and processes which are critical as an inquirer. There are different platforms for pupils to make connections across different subjects and disciplines. In Home Skills lessons, pupils will have opportunities to put into good use their knowledge of concepts related to heat, matter and materials into life skills such cooking and sewing. P3 and 4 pupils also visit the Zoo and Botanic Gardens which constitutes part of extending the curriculum beyond their classroom experience.
In the near future, we look forward to providing greater exposure for our pupils to learn more about urban farming and upcycling as our school completes the construction of our Outdoor Experiential Learning Corner. Pupils will have the opportunity to apply their skills learnt in school to apply in their journey as a City Farmer and adopt environmental friendly farming practices as they embark on their planting process. Pupils who show keenness in enriching their experience will be able to embark on more Pupil-initiated environment projects for the whole school through their participation as Green Club members.
To further stretch our students who show keen interest and demonstrate the aptitude for deeper learning in Science, the school provides opportunities for the Upper Primary pupils to participate in external science-related competitions such as the Science Olympiads. The School supports them by providing training sessions to prepare them.
