About Basic Science & Technology Scheme of Work for Primary 1

Basic Science and Technology is Divided into Three Categories: Basic Science, Information Technology (IT), and Physical and Health Education (PHE). The Primary 1 Basic Science and Technology will serve as an introductory class to the Pupils. It will introduce concepts related to Life Science( Living Things, animals and our bodies) and Physical Sciences( energy, Sound, light and simple Machines).

The Sub-categories: Basic Science, IT and PHE for this class will focus on the following;

Basic Science will introduce the pupils to living and non-living things, energy, water, light, colour, etc. This category makes them conversant with their environment, as well as study their environment about what they are taught in the class.

Information Technology class will expose the pupils to the part of the computer, how to start a computer, introduce them to what a computer room looks like, and also simple basic machines. This category will expose them to the tech world.

Physical and Health Education, this category, will introduce them to movement, games, rules in games, and personal hygiene.

All the categories in Basic Science and technology should be properly demonstrated to the pupils as this subject involves a practical and interactive class to enhance proper understanding of what is being taught.
