About Basic Science Scheme of Work for Primary 2

The basic science for Primary two is a little bit more into science than the Primary 1 Basic Science. In this session, the scheme is also centered on Living things and Energy, but it covers the broader aspect of these topics. 

The pupils will be taught topics like senses; hearing, smell, taste, touch. They will also be taught soil; sandy, loamy, and clay soil and they will be asked to mold with the soil. Topics like Plant, Animals, Energy, Colour and its use, Air, Water etc.

By the end of the session, the pupils are expected to know how to identify senses in humans, discuss soil types and their characteristics, practical use of clay soil, understand this concept of water, its properties and importance to living things etc. All these can be properly achieved with the aid of pupil-teacher interaction, and the use of the needed instructional material.
