ENGLISH LANGUAGE SYLLABUS Grades 2 to 7
This syllabus was produced as a result of the Education Curriculum Reforms aimed at improving the provision of education at all levels.
The reforms were necessitated by the need to solve long-standing challenges in the existing curriculum such as being overloaded, compartmentalized, examination-oriented and inflexible. The reforms were also an attempt by the Ministry of Education, Science and Vocational Training to capture the latest technological, economic, political and social developments in a fast-changing world. The syllabus focuses on the development of literacy in English, based on what the child has already learned in Grade One in his or her familiar language.
The syllabus has been reviewed to make it outcomes-based, learner-centered and continuous-assessment oriented.
It is my sincere hope that this outcomes-based syllabus will greatly improve the quality of education provided at the Primary School level as defined and recommended in the policy document, „Educating our Future‟ 1996.
