Teaching and Learning focusing on Student-Centricity
We adopt the 5-E Inquiry Instructional approach in our teaching and learning of Science. This pedagogy of inquiry-based learning enables our girls to acquire knowledge and understanding of Science through active learning with their peers and teachers.

Developing and Stretching Pupils' Creativity
The innovation programme initiated by the MOE gifted programme branch provided opportunities for our selected P5 girls to solve everyday problems with their innovative designs, hence displaying their creativity. The pupils were guided and mentored by the Science teachers from the IvP team and our girls showcased their designs yearly in the Young Innovator's Fair.

I Learn @ SMPS Programmes
Science teachers tap on the "The Third Teacher" to utilise physical resources with the goal to enrich our girls in the learning of Science.
(a) Learning Centres around the school compound provide experiential learning opportunities and enable our girls to take the learning of Science beyond the classroom.

|Learning about water plants in the eco-pond||Finding out about the organisms in the aquarium|
(b) I Wonder! Programme
Our Science teachers believe that it is always good to rise and shine in the garden. Thus, they have planned dates with the girls in the morning to introduce the different plants and animals in the garden.

(c) Various learning journeys are organised for the pupils to allow them to have authentic outdoor learning to learn Science beyond the confines of the classroom in a fun and enjoyable way. Our P3 girls visit the River Safari while our P6 pupils visit the Sungei Buloh Wetlands Reserve.

Learning Science via learning tools
The learning of Science is enhanced through the use of ICT tools, dataloggers and I-pads. Our girls use these learning tools during their Science lessons to source and collect information and data.
(a) I-pad Learning Trails
Learning trails in the school using the I-pad apps are organised for our P5 girls. The girls were given the opportunity to learn in an authentic learning experience and this allows them to learn the science concepts taught in class as they get to observe the living organisms in their natural habitat and to observe their interactions with the environment.
Our girls are encouraged to be self-directed learners in this programme. Teachers identify selected learning websites that will benefit pupils and present the link in a QR code. This allows pupils to scan the QR codes using their handphones and I-pads and learn at their own pace.
Using the I-pad apps to learn Science is fun!
