Science








Our Indigo Science Heuristics programme, designed by experienced MOE Heads of Department (Science) & A. Supervisors of PSLE Science Marking#, Cedric Chai and Alda Lim, each with 20 years of teaching experience, prepares our students for distinction (A/ A*) in PSLE examinations through

  • UNDERSTANDING of Scientific concepts (instead of meaningless memorising of concepts)
  • Explicit teaching of PROCESS SKILLS (to tackle experiment based exam. Questions)
  • Equipping students with SG 1st Science Answering Technique' to systematically answer Higher order/ Application questions as well as minimise loss of marks due to incomplete, inaccurate or non-precise answers.

#ASM – Supervises school teachers (including GEP teachers, HODs) in the marking of PSLE Scripts
'LiSC Answering Technique Guidebook is available at all public libraries (since 2010). First in SG to systemise the Answering approach for PSLE Science.












Our
Approach

As a subject introduced in Primary 3, Science is taught with a strong academic focus, in preparation for distinction (A/ A*) in PSLE examinations. Indigo Science Heuristics programme not only supports such academic requirements, we put emphasis on making learning engaging for our young students.

Key Features for Distinction (A / A*)

  • Concept Mastery - Focuses on clarifying misconceptions
  • Process Skills Mastery - Explicit teaching of templates for all scientific investigation skills required for PSLE
  • Application to Real-world - Relevant experiments / video to evaluate understanding and application of concepts
  • Answering Technique' (SG 1st) Mastery - In-depth discussion of application / past PSLE testing trends and questions; Minimise loss of marks with the use of Answering Technique.
  • Relevant Assessment and Performance Monitoring on ability to apply problem-solving strategies in timed conditions.

'LiSC Answering Technique Guidebook is available at all public libraries (since 2010). First in SG to systemise the Answering approach for PSLE Science.
