Inquisitive learners, Budding Young Scientists
To inculcate the spirit of scientific inquiry in every individual
Science Curriculum @ Greendale
The Science Curriculum @ Greendale aims to achieve a balance between the acquisition of science knowledge, process and attitudes in the pupils.
In addition, as and when the topics lend themselves, pupils are made aware of the technological and social implications and the value aspects of science.
Central to the Greendale curriculum is the inculcation of the spirit of scientific inquiry in the pupils. The conduct of inquiry is founded on the following domains of
(a) Knowledge, Understanding and Application
(b) Skills and Processes and
(c) Ethics and Attitudes
Science Teachers’ Toolkit
The following strategies are used to facilitate the inquiry process in pupils:
• Concept Mapping
• Cooperative Learning
• Field Trips
• Infusion of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT)
The above strategies help to engage pupils in meaningful learning experiences and cultivate their curiosity and interest in science. The hands-on experiences situated in realistic contexts are provided for pupils to make connections with their own lives and the environment they live in.
