Every student an inquirer.
To develop students to be curious about the world and to equip them with the necessary skills for Science inquiry.
Inquiry-based learning empowers students to take greater ownership of their learning. Students are given questions and tasks collaboratively to explain scientific concepts, using evidence to support their thoughts and claims. The process of inquiry is facilitated by teachers who help students make connections and build their understanding of concepts.
Experiential learning inspires curiosity and empowers students to take charge of their learning by showing them how science relates to real life. Concord provides various learning spaces such as the terrarium, the butterfly garden and the hydroponics etc. Through meaningful learning experience, student learning can extend beyond the classroom.
Explicit teaching and learning of Process Skills enables our students to develop their mastery in using and applying these strategies in their daily lives. For example, Primary 3 students learn how to observe and classify while Primary 4 students acquire analysing and communicating skills. Primary 5 students are taught how to make inferences and how to interpret data. As for the Primary 6 students, they will learn how to evaluate an experiment and generate explanations based on the given evidence.
