About Basic Science Scheme of Work for Primary 5

Basic Science for Primary 5 is a subject that is designed to equip the pupils with the basic scientific knowledge suitable for their age. The pupils will be introduced to materials, drawing instruments, types of energy and energy conversion, how to produce soap etc. 

The topics covered in this subject include; Environmental quality, changes around us, control of erosion, land and noise pollution, waste and waste disposal, environmental changes, reproduction in plants, domestic and wild animals, heat temperature, acid and base etc.

By the end of the academic session the pupils should be able to identify different materials and put them in use, name and make use of different types of drawing instruments, understand energy and different types of energy conversions, explain electricity generation, produce soap etc.
