Nov-Dec 2019 Holiday Programme – Science (Skeletons & Muscles)

Systems – Muscular & Skeletal

These both systems play a crucial part in ensuring our bodies do not give way – halfway. Each system is equally important and that was what our students got to explore for that day. We supplemented with notes and hands on engagement for them to think, link and make the appropriate connections.

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.

Nov-Dec 2019 Holiday Programme – Science (Electricity)

Systems – Electricity

It was an eureka moment for our students when they witnessed how cool electricity could be! They scrambled to lay hands on the globe to create electrical waves. We allowed them to tinker around some more before moving to the lesson proper. We believe in getting our students engaged in activities before teaching them the know hows. This facilitates our lessons even better, where their curious minds are on a high alert to know more.

Nov-Dec 2019 Holiday Programme – Science (Digestive System)

Systems – Digestive System

Burrp! We got our students to taste some mouth watering snacks as we touched on the Digestive System. Learning Science is hands on, where we encourage students to explore learning using their five senses. They touched the snacks, opened the snacks, smelt the snacks, tasted the snacks and swallowed them all! As they were in the motion, we took the opportunity to teach the parts and functions of the digestive system. Learn on the go! Next, they also got the chance to touch a life sized parts of the digestive system. We made it a challenge for them to “dissect” the parts and assemble them again within a time limit. To ensure our students understand what they are learning, we got them to make observations and record in their task sheet.

Nov-Dec 2019 Holiday Programme – Science (Cells)

Systems – Cells

What a better way to learn about cells, using a microscope! We love to source for interesting specimen slides to show to our students, that learning about cells is not just limited to onion cells and cheek cells. Therefore, besides still teaching in accordance to the MOE syllabus, we go beyond to further expand on their knowledge. For the lesson on that day, we taught them the proper use parts of a microscope. Beside the usual plant cell that we showed our students, we even showed them parts of an insect, where the anatomy of the creature is clearly seen in its full glory under the lens of the microscope. That is, we call, that learning never stops.

Nov-Dec 2019 Holiday Programme – Science (Blowing Balloons)

Systems – Respiratory System

We have been using the humble rubber to make our point across to our students whenever we touch on the Respiratory System. Thankfully, we did that before the Covid19 and our students enjoyed inflating and then releasing their balloons, just for the fun of it. They also had a blast competing whose balloon was the biggest (and maybe who had the most saliva too)!

Aside the fun, we got our students to record all their observations.

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 / 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.

P5 Science / 17 July 2019 / Wednesday / Electricity

Our second P5 class also had the chance to tinker around with the electricity materials that we had laid out for them. We expanded into learning conductors and insulators, which our boys were excited to search for materials to test out the conductivity level. They predicted, tested, observed and recorded. Slightly different learning outcome from our previous class, but we love the diversity of learning!
