The Teachers Guide, Vol. 1 lays the foundation of Health Education knowledge, skills, attitudes and practices. It is on this foundation that Teachers Guide Vol. 2 develop further knowledge skills, attitude and practices taught in upper grades P5, 6, 7.
In teaching health education, continuity, consistance and practicability are very important factors which the teacher needs to keep in mind all the time so that the learner can properly develop good health behaviours.
Consequently, it is necessary for all teachers of Health Education to continuously study both Vol 1 and 2 of the Teachers Guide to be aware of the content development from P1 to P7.
This will facilitate a proper linkage between lower and upper primary levels.
This linkage will be cemented further if teachers would meet occasionally and compare their schemes of work and lessons together for the benefit of the pupils.
Since Vol. 2 has been in the schools long before Vol. 1. The approach and practices already acquired by pupils should not be disrupted but rather carefully accommodated unless there is a strong reason not to adhere to such established approach or practice.
