Programmes

The Science Department recognises that pupils need to be given a conducive environment and right guidance to be nurtured as critical thinkers and be driven to deeper learning in the areas they are passionate about. As such, the department strives to focus on the key strategic partnerships (the pupils, teachers and parents) to bring about learning success of the pupils.

Guided by the Primary Science Syllabus 2014, we aim to design learning experiences to prepare our pupils to be self-directed and collaborative learners, one who is able to acquire and manage information to meet challenges of globalisation and increased international competitiveness. Our Science learning programmes aim to provide opportunities for pupils to acquire scientific concepts and develop process skills and positive attitudes in alignment with curriculum needs and pupils’ interest and abilities.
The following table shows the themes covered in the respective levels.

Every Child A Seed (In partnership with NParks)

Every child in Primary 3 will be given a starter kit provided by NParks. This starter kit allows them to grow their own plant, caring for it from the germination of the seed till the adult stage. The programme ties in with the pupils’ learning of plant parts in the Science curriculum.

Earth Day

Every year, Earth Day is commemorated on 22 April. The Science Department collaborates with various departments to bring about awareness and promote participation among pupils in doing their part towards sustainable living. Activities such as the Save the Pen/Pencil and the Give-and-Share are on-going for the whole year. We also conduct an assembly talk, put up recycled art display, organise Science Booth Activities and promote Earth-day related books in the library during the week of commemoration. This year, Gongshang Primary School has adopted the theme of ‘Reducing food and plastic waste’.

Inches for Pocket Money (In partnership with SPH)

Primary 4 classes will observe the life cycle of a plant (Lady’s finger plant) through growing their own seed and caring for it. This is a meaningful project as every inch of the longest fruit produced will help raise funds for the less fortunate. 

Enrichment Programmes and Competitions

Selected Primary 4 - 6 pupils who display a high interest and ability in Science will be introduced to enrichment activities and competitions to further develop their critical thinking and communication skills.
