PSLE Science - Overview

Primary 6 or PSLE Science courses mark an exciting new chapter for any student′s journey in Science. Building on what was learned previously, PSLE Science introduces them to more complex scientific principles and concepts, including Earth sciences, Life sciences, Physical sciences as well as topics on Ecosystems such as Food Chains, Food Webs and Adaptations - among many other topics! Through engaging experiments and observations, students gain a better understanding of nature and the world around them. PSLE Science promotes critical thinking skills as well as applying their scientific knowledge to everyday situations and preparing them for further scientific investigations in future years!

List of Modules in PSLE Science


Module 1: Energy

The first module begins with Energy and the following concepts - forms of energy, sources of energy, energy conservation, and energy found in food. Students will learn about other forms of energy like heat, light, potential and kinetic energy. They will also learn about the differences between renewable and non-renewable energy. The modules also cover other energy sources such as geothermal energy, hydroelectric energy and nuclear energy from fossil fuels.

Module 2: Diversity and Interactions

Module 2 starts with revisiting the Primary 3 topics - Living and Non-living things and Materials. The child will learn about the fundamentals of forces, types of forces and their applications. They will understand that magnets also exert magnetic forces of attraction and repulsion.

Module 3: Systems

Module 3 is composed of the revision topics from Primary 3 and Primary 5. Students will revisit topics like the Electrical system, Plant transport system and the Human respiratory and Circulatory systems.

Module 4: Cycles

In this module, the students will be revisiting the Primary 4 topics like Matter and Life cycles of animals and plants. They will also recap concepts such as evaporation, condensation, melting and boiling points, all of which are important to fully understand the topic on Water Cycle.

Module 5: Interactions Within the Environment

This is a new module where students will be exposed to new concepts such as ‘Population’ and ‘Community’. They will learn about different types of habitats, their characteristics and the types of animals and plants found in these habitats. Students will also learn about animal and plant adaptations as well as food chains and food webs. This module also discusses how Man affects the environment around him in both positive and negative ways. Students will learn

Module 6: PSLE Preparation

This module encompasses 3 components: MCQ practice, open-ended practice and higher-order thinking skills. This module will also cover the dreaded open-ended section where the students will be reinforcing the techniques on how to formulate their solutions to include key concepts which are required in the PSLE exam.
