About English Studies Scheme of Work for Primary 1

English Studies in Primary School 1 is the foundational rock that an educator will use to train the pupils towards building their spoken and written English. It is divided into four segments; Phonics,  Structure, Vocabulary, Comprehension and  Writing. 

Basic 1 is the stage pupils need to build their communication skills through speech sounds and simple grammar. The four segments that Basic 1 English is divided into will help the pupil recognize and pronounce sounds correctly and build them in the formation of simple sentences.

These sentences are composed of monosyllabic words and nouns like; My Name is ……….., I am in Basic 1, and I am 6 years old. Also learning rhyme with one-syllable words at this stage of education will build their fluency in their L2 (English).
