National Curriculum and Development Center Resource
National Primary School Curriculum for Uganda
Teacher’s Guide Primary One​

This Teacher's Guide is designed to provide you with most of the support you need to teach the thematic curriculum. You will also need to study the new National Primary Curriculum for Uganda to be sure that you are familiar with the general aims and objectives of PI curriculum and themes.

You will also be given a Teacher's Resource Book, which is a collection of materials in your local language for oral literacy work which includes songs, rhymes, riddles, proverbs, etc.

The Teacher's Guide is divided into two main parts: Part A provides guidance on the general teaching approach recommended for the PI teacher who is preparing to teach the new curriculum. This section provides ideas on the overall methodology and class management recommended for teaching with a thematic approach as well as providing the rationale and teaching procedures for each strand.

Part B provides Schemes of Work Guidelines for each teaching week as well as Lesson Plan Guidelines. The Schemes of Work Guidelines are brief statements on the topics and competences that should form the basis of each lesson. The schemes can be used to plan your week's teaching in advance so that you can integrate the target topics and competences. Make sure that you understand what each competence means. If several of you are teaching PI, arrange time with colleagues in your school so that you have a common understanding of what the main competences are, and how they differ (or are similar) from strand to strand.

The Lesson Plan Guidelines form the largest part of the Teacher's Guide. These guidelines are examples. They do not show, for example, learning outcomes and competencies of each lesson. They are intended to support your regular lesson planning. For this reason, they have been presented in such a way that all the lessons for a single day can be seen easily on a double-page spread of the Teacher's Guide.
