7. Man’s impact on his Environment
- different types of plants: the creepers, the flowering and the non-flowering,
- different parts of the plants, and how different plants have different plant parts for various purposes,
- life cycle of the butterfly,
- reproductive parts of a plant,
- the science behind composting,
- observing interactions among living things, and
- how the flora and fauna are adapted for different purposes.
To nurture a sense of appreciation for nature and encourage Andersonians to do their part for the environment, various science enrichment modules have been designed to provide opportunities for students to work on STEM-related activities and projects with a focus on Environmental Science & Sustainability Living. These enrichment modules provide opportunities for learning and self-discovery through doing.
to Nature – Replant & Grow Module
Back to Nature – Replant and Grow module aims to nurture budding Young Botanists with an appreciation and love for our nature’s green. In conjunction with the launch of the Young Botanist Activity Card for all Primary 5 students in Term 1, students have participated in a micro-farming workshop and a recycled bottle garden lesson.
In the micro-farming workshop, students discovered the various components of healthy, ‘living’ soil. Students worked in groups and got their hands dirty to mix these components together to create their own organic soil. This organic soil was then transferred into their fabric planter beds to grow Bak Choy, Spring Onions and Lettuce. At the recycled bottle garden lesson, each student had the opportunity to create their own Bottle Garden using simple materials such as a recycled plastic bottle, Fittonia, pebbles and peat moss.
Through these hands-on activities, students learned about the science behind composting, how a recycled bottle garden can be self-sustaining and brought home organic crops to share with their family.
This in-house programme aims to provide a hands-on learning experience for our Primary 3 students to appreciate and learn more about plant life, participate in the process of crop growing, develop teamwork, motivate respect and values for life in nature as well as encourage healthy eating habits.
During the growing process, students have the opportunity to observe different plant parts such as plant roots, without pulling the plant out of its environment. Students will transplant their seedlings into the hydroponics system and watch the development of their crop until it is ready to be harvested and consumed.
The Science Assembly Programme is planned with the following objectives:
- to arouse and ignite Andersonians interest in the learning of Science
- to equip Andersonians with the ethics and attitudes to engage in science-related issues as a reflective citizen
- to help Andersonians appreciate how science influences people and the environment.
Some of the shows and talks organised include:
- The Amazing World of Animals Talk
- Author’s Talk on the World of Dinosaur by local author Andy Chua
- Air-Amazing Science Show
- No! to Plastic Talk
- Marine Wildlife Talk & Marine Tank Interaction
- Incredible Edibles – The Chemistry of Cookies Science Show by the Singapore Science Centre
- Singapore Wildlife and Trashbusters Talks by the Singapore Zoo
Science Experiential Day
Primary 6 students take part in the Science
Experiential Day conducted by Singapore Science Centre in Term 1. Each student
made their own wind turbine by making a pinwheel to attach to a motor. Students
are encouraged to be creative in testing out various pinwheel designs that will
be efficient in collecting wind so as to enable the LED that is attached to the
motor, to light up steadily. Through this experiential day, students learn to
apply concepts of energy conversion to explain how their wind turbine works.

Learning Journey to Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve
Primary 6 students have the opportunity to explore biodiversity in our own backyard and understand its importance during the mangrove walk at the Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve. During this learning journey, students learn eye-opening facts about fauna and flora in mangrove habitats, relationships between organisms and appreciate the importance of protecting our Mother Nature.
