Conclusion

The CRS scheme of work for Primary 5 has been planned to enable pupils to know more about the Christian faith, its values, and principles. There are three terms and each one has particular lessons and objectives to be covered.

The course focuses on God’s provision and work during the first term, God’s mercy, Pentecost, and the Holy Spirit in the second term, and the Holy Spirit’s impact in their life during the third term. I think that this scheme of work is an effective method for developing pupils’ spiritual life.
