Nov-Dec 2019 Holiday Programme – Science (Oobleck)

Cycles – States Of Matter

We love to curate experiments that took up our students’ time, not to waste it, but to teach them to be engaged effectively in a new dimension. Textbook learning is here to stay, and we do encourage our students to read and learn from notes. However, the missing link to help them bridge their learning is being hands on. Hence, we always like to showcase a tried and tested experiment on the Oobleck. It is a non Newtonian fluid, and is able to be in the solid state and the liquid state, under certain conditions. They, never get tired of it. It is a good stress reliever too, as some of our students attested to.

Nov-Dec 2019 Holiday Programme – Science (Candle Cone)

Cycles – States Of Matter

The experiment tagged to the lesson was fast and furious, and our students could not get enough fun out of it. We repeated the experiment several times, and they still could not get enough of it. We had to spoil their fun and promised another run sometime later over their regular lessons. Safety is our top priority, and before any experiments, we would run a full test out on our own, to ensure the experiments achieved what we had planned. No fire was out of control on that day, as our students were more interested to put out the flames in a quickest time possible instead!

Nov-Dec 2019 Holiday Programe – Science (Sound)

Cycles – States Of Matter

Sound is not a matter, and we aim to use this lesson to teach all about sound waves. We explored why sound is not a matter, and how important is sound in our daily lives. The experiment was the part our students enjoyed – an old school way of speaking into the cups and hoping the other party heard them.

Nov-Dec 2019 Holiday Programme – Science (Growing Seeds)

Diversity – Plants

Cycles – Life Cycle (Plant)

Systems – Plant Reproduction

One experiment, multiple topics to learn from. A simple act of growing seeds, one can expect to learn about plant diversity, plant life cycle and plant reproduction. However, this is limited to the our P5-P6 students, as they would have already learnt the topics.

P5 Science / Sept Holiday 2019 / Sowing Seeds, Agents Of Pollinators

Another round of fun for our P5s! With the same materials, we align that to learning about the Plant Reproduction. We got them to sow seeds and observe the growth over the week. We showed videos for them to recap about plant reproduction and revisited certain key words for them to remember. The class got excited when we poured a big packet of snacks in the middle of where our students sat. With the edible snacks, we got them to do a role play of them being the agents of pollinators and the snacks being the pollen grains. They were instructed to pick up the “pollen grains”, pop them into their mouths, and used the crumbs from their fingers to “pollinate” the flowers that they had drawn. And guess what, our class gladly did so! It was the survival of the fittest where they had to jostle one another for more “pollen grains”! We had much fun as much as they did!

P3-4 Science / Sept Holiday 2019 / Sowing Seeds

We love hands on, and an effective way to engage students is by giving them something tangible to touch and observe. We got them to sow seeds and they were of course, excited. We did some lessons on the topic of Plant Parts before getting their hands dirty – pouring the soil, watering the soil to get the moist texture, spreading the seeds, covering the seeds with the soil and doing the final touches. We reminded them to water their seeds and observe what would happen.

P5 Science / 30 July Tuesday / 2019 / Seed Dispersal Part 2

Part 2, following our previous lesson on observing real seeds, it was their turn to complete a hands on activity on mimicking how a seed is dispersed by wind via a seed template. While they had fun exploring the different heights released, they also understood how and why plants need to reproduce – to ensure continuity of their own kind. Great job!

PS: safety measures were in place when they stood on the chairs under adult supervision. Do not attempt to do without an adult around.

P5 Science / 23 July 2019 / Tuesday / Seed Dispersal

Before touching on Plant Transport System for our P5 classes, we always like to teach them on the importance of seed dispersal, how seeds germinate and how they grow. These are the basic fundamentals to understand how plants transport food, water and minerals. Learning should not and never must be rushed, just like sowing seeds. With that objectives in mind, we got our students some seeds for them to explore and play around, and to get them to recap.
