To inspire learning for Science through a culture of inquiry, exploration, experimentation to nurture curious ethical individuals.

Science Curriculum Framework

The Science curriculum in Riverside Primary is designed to inspire learning for Science through a culture of inquiry, exploration, experimentation to nurture curious ethical individuals. The Science curriculum focuses on the 5E Instructional model to deliver the teaching of Science. The 5E Instructional model is an inquiry-based instructional strategy that works to motivate and help pupils to understand Science concepts through the 5Es: Engagement, Exploration, Explanation, Elaboration and Evaluation.

The design of our Science curriculum enables our pupils to view the pursuit of Science through inquiry that relates to the roles played by Science in daily life, society and the environment. Our curriculum integrates the formal teaching of the curriculum with the integration of different experiences planned for our curious learners (e.g. Learning journeys, Performance tasks, Values in Action, Playworks and ICT) to further enthuse and connect their learning with the environment.
