An Overview of Grade 4 Curriculum Design


The Upper Primary curriculum designs are meant for learners in Grade 4 to 6. They have taken cognisance of the various aspects of development of learners of that age cohort. The designs are comprehensive enough to guide the teachers to effectively deliver the curriculum.

Curriculum designs are the core documents for teachers to use in the teaching process. The teacher must make constant reference to them in the learning process as they outline the learning outcomes to be achieved. Learning shall be assessed as per the learning outcomes given.

The designs also give suggestions on the learning experiences to achieve the learning outcomes. The teacher can vary the learning experiences as long as the substitute learning experiences target the learning outcomes. The experiences must engage the learners in form of activities or other practical experiences that will enhance learning and achievement of the core competencies.

The curriculum designs are very critical and teachers must make reference to them consistently.
