P3 Digital Trail


   Science Programme - P3 Digital Trail - 01Science Programme - P3 Digital Trail - 02










On Week 8 of Term 3, our Primary 3 Anthonians took to the Native Garden to learn more about some of our local plants. Our little botanists got their hands dirty - observing, smelling and touching various parts of the plants.

Science Programme - P3 Digital Trail - 03
Through such hands-on learning approach, our pupils were immersed into nature, experiencing first-hand the diversity of the natural eco-system. The first part of the experience included a teacher-guided tour of the garden. Our pupils were introduced to the plants and their various parts. Through this tour, they saw that there were different types of plants, with different types of parts. The pupils also got to observe the animals (namely ants and caterpillars) at work in the garden. They saw how these animals relied on plants for food (leaves and nectar) and shelter. It was an eye-opener for the pupils when they saw how their textbook came alive through this experience. 


In the second part of the lesson, our little botanists had to scan the QR code of each plant with their iPads in order to access information on the plants and complete a crossword puzzle. The lesson was without doubt a memorable and enjoyable one for the pupils.

In today’s visit to the Botanic Garden, our Primary Three students got to see first-hand the various types of flora and fauna at the garden. With the guidance of botanists from NParks, students were given a guided-tour around the Botanic Garden. They were introduced to different types of plants in the gardens, and they got to observe and touch the various types of leaves. The pupils also got to witness the different animals in action. By the end of the learning journey, our pupils had a better understanding of the diversity of plants. 


P4  

Learning Journey to Science Center to learn more about Light

Our P4 Anthonians get to explore the nature of light with a series of hands-on activities like investigating how different mirrors, lenses and materials affect how light travels.

P5 

DNA Lab@ Singapore Science Center

How do animal and plant cells look like? Our Anthonians got to look at the cells under the microscope to find out the answer. They also find out the important role DNA plays in our lives. It was so much fun!

P6 

Post PSLE activities – Game Creation from Recycled Materials
 
As part of their post PSLE activities, the P6 Anthonians planned a mini games day for the P1 - P5 Anthonians to play and have fun to celebrate the end of EOY exam.

The games are made out of recycled materials. Taking this opportunity, they showed how these materials can be useful and raised awareness among our Anthonians on recycling.
