科学 Science







在2017年,科学部在教学中全面推广“谷歌课堂”这个平台来辅助教学。谷歌课堂的使用使老师们可以将相应的知识进行讲解、录音并上传到网上,同时也提升了学生自主学习的自由度。这一平台的使用也为今年推广“新加坡学生学习平台” (SLS)做了铺垫,从而让学生更容易上手使用。

To develop lifelong learners with inquisitive minds through the acquisition of scientific knowledge and skills.

The Science Programme consists of:

Inquiry-based Learning
To enable students to acquire knowledge and understanding of their work based on investigations, application of skills and processes of inquiry, while also developing attitudes and values that are essential to the practice of Science. Teachers use the 5E (Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate & Evaluate) method in conducting Science lessons in class.

Toys @ Work
A unique programme in Nanyang for the teaching and learning of Science through the use of toys. There are designated Toys@Work activities to be completed for each level in a year. These lessons enable the students to have hands-on experience in deriving Scientific concepts to be covered in the syllabus by playing with toys. They also get the opportunity to design and create their own toys to demonstrate the same concept learnt, hence allowing them to also display their creativity.

Science Nova
Students have fun while their practical skills are being assessed and their performance for this alternative assessment does not contribute to their overall SA1 or SA2 scores. Less emphasis on test scores helps to enhance the joy of learning!

Outdoor Experiential Learning
Authentic learning environments are provided for students to engage in self-directed learning while learning specific concepts taught in their respective levels.
The school also conducts outdoor learning trails for students to enable them to observe living organisms in their natural habitats and to observe their interactions with the environment.

Self-directed Learning
In 2017, we fully embarked on the use of Google Classroom in order to leverage ICT platforms to enhance teaching and learning for the students. It promotes self-directed learning and allows students to revisit concepts at any time they need to, with the teachers’ audio explanation. This avenue for learning has since been further enhanced to include aspects of monitoring of understanding via the SLS platform to further benefit the students.
