About Basic Science Scheme of Work for Primary 1

The Basic Science for Primary 1 serves as a tool used to introduce the pupils to science. The topics are split into broad themes: Living and Non-living things and each of these themes covers different topics such as Energy, Water, Soil, colour, machines, transportation etc will be treated. These selected topics aim to make them familiarize themselves with Living and non-living things.

Instructors should communicate these new terms properly to the student, to ensure proper assimilation. Examples should also be given and they should be asked to relate it to real-life experience.
