About Basic Science and Technology Scheme of Work for Primary 3

Basic Science and Technology is a three in one subject that comprises Basic Science, Information Technology and Physical and Health Education. Each of these subjects have their individual topics they cover.

The topics covered in Primary 3 under these subjects include: Basic Science; Measurement of Length, measurement of mass, forms of energy, mirror image formation, forms of technology, air in motion, water, plant, soil etc. Information Technology; Generational Development of computer, system unit, software application, operating system, difference between hardware and software, components of CPU etc. Physical and Health Education; Physical fitness, athletes, ball games, tennis safety rule, swimming first aid etc.

By the end of the academic session, the pupils should be able to; Understand the concept of measurement and put them in use, identify air in motion and its importance to the environment, understand how the system unit, operating system, software application and system application work etc.

This subject is a practical subject, the educator should engage the pupils in the activities in the class, and they should be asked to relate what they are being taught to their surroundings.
