Science Discovery Day
Pupils engage in discovering new Science knowledge and apply what has been taught in an authentic setting. Components of the Science Discovery Day include Environment Education, National Education and Collaborative Learning.
Primary 1 : Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden
82 P1 pupils and 7 teachers went to this magical garden on a fine day, 16 August 2017. The pupils walked around the garden, enjoyed the scenery, played at the sand pit and tall tree house, excitedly walked on the suspension bridge and engaged in some brainwork by doing a Social Studies-based set of activity sheets. The pupils marvelled at the huge mushroom structures and posed for a photograph near them. Entry to the Garden is free and the pupils are encouraged to visit the place again with their parents if they wish.
Primary 2 : Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park
This learning activity exposes and introduces Primary 2 pupils to the skills of a scientist. The activity, conducted as a Programme for Active Learning (PAL), develops observation skills and allows pupils to apply what they have learnt through the PAL Outdoor Education module.
Primary 3 : Botanical Gardens
The learning of Science comes alive for our Primary 3 pupils as they are introduced to the beauty and diversity of nature at the Botanical Gardens. Pupils get to appreciate the local flora and fauna up close and personal.
Primary 4 : Gardens by the Bay
The learning journey for our Primary 4 pupils combines authentic learning with ICT through the use of a mobile application designed and created by GYPS teachers.
The interactive mobile learning trail supports self-directed learning (SDL) and collaborative learning (COL) outside the classroom. Through the use of the mobile app, learning Science becomes more fun and engaging for pupils.
Primary 5 : Singapore Sports Hub
Science concepts and their applications can be found everywhere. What better place to learn and discover more about Science than the newly constructed Singapore Sports Hub with its beautiful surroundings. National Education, with a focus on Singapore’s sporting heroes, is featured in this learning activity.
Primary 6 : Singapore Zoological Gardens
The Singapore Zoological Gardens provides numerous opportunities for pupils to study nature and wildlife in closer detail. In this learning journey, pupils continue to sharpen their Science inquiry skills and build on their Science knowledge. Here, they focus on applying Science knowledge learnt from Primary 3 through Primary 6 with special attention paid to interactions within the environment.
