Science

The Science department seeks to nurture GESPians with a passion for Science and equip them with skills such as observing and analysing which are necessary for scientific inquiry. Gespians are encouraged to be responsible for their own learning through inquiry which is characterised by the degree of responsibility they have in posing and responding to questions, designing investigations and evaluating and communicating their learning.

The school customises the teaching of Science to meet the learning needs of the students in the classroom and beyond the classroom.  Teachers are equipped with the 5E (Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate and Evaluate) instructional model to help frame the sequence and organization of their lessons in the classroom.  Strategies such as Concept Cartoon, Questioning techniques and Investigations are part of the repertoire of strategies used in the classroom teaching.

Beyond the classroom, GESPians are empowered with experiences as an inquirer who would be able to enjoy Science and value Science as an important tool to help them explore the natural and physical world. These experiences include the P1 and P2 Science Exploration Day, Learning Journeys, Integrated Learning Week and Science Busker activities.  Leveraging on the use of technology to boost the joy of learning, students are engaged in lessons through the use of ICT tools when they participate in the GESPS in-house Science Trail.
