About Basic Science and Technology Scheme of Work for Primary 4

Basic Science and Technology for upper basic class 4 is a combination of three subjects namely Basic Science, Information Technology, and Physical and Health Education. The topics for this class cover slightly advanced topics for their age such as changes in nature, changes in plant and animal, water, athletics, track events, viruses and anti-virus etc.

This subject is practical; the educators should ensure the pupils are engaged in what is being taught, and the practical aspect of the class should be carried out religiously and the pupils should also demonstrate what is being taught.
