Motivation is key to effective learning. Helping your child to connect with Science can help him or her become more interested in the subject.
For your child, discovering the amazing world of Science begins with encouraging and capitalising on his or her curiosity. If your child is starting Primary 3 next year, it's a great time to familiarise your child with basic Science concepts and skills.
Your child can learn a lot just by observing the environment around him or her. Observations and questions can create a climate of discovery — this is key to scientific learning.
Making Science Fun and Relevant
Help your child make sense of the world by showing him or her how Science works in everyday activities. On a trip to the zoo, for example, get your child to observe the different characteristics of an animal that helps it to adapt to its environment. On a rainy day, share with your child about water cycle — it can even help him or her understand why the weather changes!
Whether you are outdoors or indoors, draw your child’s attention to the events that occur around them to trigger their curiosity and interest in Science. The most intriguing Science lesson may very well be the one that takes place right in front of him or her.
Some other great ways to engage your child are through experiments, videos and fun activities. Check out some of these everyday Science experiments that you might like to try out with your child.

Managing Science in Primary 3
If your child is entering Primary 3 next year, the prospect of learning Science as a new subject may be really exciting or even a little daunting.
As we are at the end of the academic year, it is important for you to begin preparing your child for the rigours of Science as a new subject in the Primary 3 syllabus.
It is vital for your child to have the basic knowledge and application skills for this subject in order to truly enjoy Science classes when the new school year begins.
To ease our Primary 3 students into Science as a new subject, our curriculum in Term 1 focuses on fostering a passion and genuine interest for Science. Your child will not only learn about this new subject through written exercises, but also have plenty of opportunities to pick up Science techniques through experiments and first-hand experience.
