Home » Primary 1 Scheme of Work

This unified scheme of work for basic class 1 will guide effective teaching and learning in private and government schools. A scheme of work is an academic outline that is designed to state what is to be covered within a specific time. It is usually for an academic session (first, second and third term). This is so because it helps teachers plan their lessons, that way they can make sure their lessons are taught before the end of the school year.

Basic primary education is the foundation of a child’s educational development, it is in primary school that a child will learn the basic skills that will prepare him for life. In this academic stage, pupils need to be empowered with quality education as it will positively impact their lives. 

The old curriculum was reviewed in 2023. The reviewed unified scheme of works covers various subjects that aid in the proper upbringing of a child. This scheme of work is derived from the Lagos State Ministry of Education curriculum.
