Fides, Spes and Caritas

And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

Science (S1-3)


The Science (S1-3) curriculum provides science-related learning experiences that develop students’ interest in science and to lay a foundation for their studies of various science curricula at the senior secondary level. It also focuses on the development of scientific literacy for living in and contributing towards a scientific and technological world.

The broad aims of the Science (S1-3) curriculum are to enable students to:

  • develop curiosity and interest in science;
  • acquire fundamental scientific knowledge and skills, and appreciate the relationship between science and other disciplines;
  • develop the ability to make scientific investigation (SI) and solve problems;
  • use the language of science to communicate science-related ideas;
  • develop a basic understanding of the nature of science (NOS);
  • develop the ability to integrate and apply scientific knowledge and skills
  • with other related disciplines;
  • recognise the social, ethical, economic, environmental and technological implications of science, and develop an attitude of responsible citizenship and a commitment to promote personal and community health;
  • be prepared for further studies in STEM-related disciplines; and
  • become lifelong learners in science for personal development.


In addition, two Curriculum Emphases, Unifying Concepts and Science Process Skills, are important components of the Science (S1-3) curriculum. They enhance students’ understanding of the connections and overarching coherence across different science disciplines, and of the process of scientific investigations and related skills.


The curriculum content is organised into 11 Units. It is designed to cover the key ideas of science, as well as the social and technological implications of science. Each Unit allows students to explore and investigate a specific theme in Science.

The Units for S1 to S3 are listed below:


S1 Unit 1: Introducing Science


Unit 2: Water


Unit 3: Looking at Living Things


Unit 4: Cells, Human Reproduction and Heredity


Unit 5: Energy


Unit 6: Matter as Particles


Unit 7: Living Things and Air


Unit 8: Making Use of Electricity


Unit 9: Common Acids and Alkalis


Unit 10: Sensing the Environment


Unit 11: Force and Motion


Biology module – A Healthy Body


Chemistry module – From Atoms to Materials


Physics – Light, Colours and Beyond



Bridging Strategies

At the junior secondary level, the Science (S1-3) curriculum enables students to further develop their scientific knowledge and skills and provide a firm foundation for them to pursue their studies at the senior secondary level. At the senior secondary level, students can extend their learning by studying one or more Science elective subjects including Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Science (Mode II: Combined Science) and/or by engaging in science-related learning activities.
