Primary Science Tuition | PSLE Science

APMC’s Primary Science Tuition is meticulously crafted to prepare students to achieve PSLE success starting from Primary 3 where layers of foundation are constantly laid and materialized through our proven methods of revision. Our Science curriculum for Primary 3 and 4 is designed to spark students’ interest by introducing new topics in an engaging and fun manner, learning through experiment videos, virtual experiments, hands-on activities and interactive games. Real-world situations related to the topics are woven into the lessons for students to deepen their topical knowledge and develop an understanding of how science concepts are applied. By Primary 6, our students will have the necessary skills, aptitude and confidence to embrace PSLE Examination. To help our students revise effectively, we provide comprehensive notes, concept maps and regular practice papers. Our curriculum materials are constantly kept abreast with prevailing PSLE trends to ensure that students are ready for the more current questions types

With a small class size of 6 (max 8), we ensure that every student receive our dedicated attention during our classes. Videos, quizzes, games and real-world projects make the learning of Science interactive, fun and real for our students. We champion consistency and active learning in students, equipping them with the skills and wits to carve out their edge in Science and eventually ACE the PSLE examination.

To prepare students for PSLE success and beyond, our students will be exposed to topical revision through comprehensive concept maps and noteworthy past examination questions during our Primary School Science Tuition. Students will further solidify their examination skills through error analysis exercises and practice tests.

Primary Science Tuition Highlights

Content Mastery
  • In Primary 3, students will be introduced to a range of topics including diversity. They will learn about the key characteristics of animals, plants, fungi, bacteria, and materials, and identify the relevant properties of material through experiment videos and virtual experiments. Topics such as life cycles, plant and human body systems, and magnets will also be covered in the Primary 3 curriculum.
  • In Primary 4, students master the abstract concepts of matter, light and heat, while observing the displacement of matter and identifying properties of light through experiment videos. Additionally, learners will revise topics such as diversity, life cycles, systems, and magnets.
  • Primary 5 students will learn new topics such as water and changes of state, reproduction, cells and electrical system and deepen their understanding of concepts through experiment videos and virtual experiments.
  • In Primary 6, students will learn new topics such as forces, sources and forms of energy, and environment and practice applying critical answering techniques to provide complete answers. To prepare for the PSLE, students will systematically revise all topics from Primary 3 to Primary 6.
Skills and Techniques
  • Students learn to substantiate answers by obtaining and using information that is presented in tables, flowcharts, classification charts and bar graphs.
  • With guidance from our teachers, students learn to craft answers by identifying the relevant properties demonstrated in the experiment set-ups.
  • Students will learn to draw relationships between variables based on the results of an experiment
  • Students will be exposed to application questions where they have to approach questions with unfamiliar context based on the concepts that they have learnt and answer in context of the question
  • Additionally, they will also practice common experiment-based questions and learn how to use appropriate Science keywords in context when answering specific questions.
  • Students will analyze experimental set-ups and recognize how a controlled variable ensures a fair experiment, and the purpose of a controlled variable
  • Students will raise their awareness of common pitfalls and learn how to analyze them in order to avoid losing marks unnecessarily
  • Students will be given extensive practice on application questions where they approach questions with unfamiliar contexts
  • Students will hone their exam techniques with multiple mock examinations that allow them to receive feedback and to gain a firm understanding of exam requirements.
Revision and Reinforcement
  • Towards Mid or PSLE Exam, APM’s Science Tuition focuses on revising and mastering all the topics through practice tests and revision handouts, which include questions that test foundational knowledge and examination questions
  • Hone key examination skills such as time management and error analysis with practices on specific question types
