Welcome to the Single National Curriculum (SNC) Feedback Portal.

Here you will find a DRAFT version of updates to the curriculum for ECCE to Grade 12. Please give your feedback on all material shared.

After feedback is incorporated, SNC for Grades 6-8 will be notified for implementation in the Academic Year starting in 2022. First round of feedback for these grades is due on December 20, 2021.

An updated curriculum for ECCE to Grade 5 and for Grades 9-12 will be notified later, for implementation in the Academic Year starting 2023.

Overview of Improvements

Subject: Mathematics (1 - 8)

Grade 1 - 5

After having a detailed analysis of SNC in terms of:

The following addendums were created to ensure breadth, balance and continuity and progression in the syllabus.

  1. Numbers and Operations:

Class 4 and 5 contained a maximum number of concepts which could have easily been justified in other levels as task demand for these concepts was not very high, therefore they have been spread evenly across the levels (1 - 5) to ensure breadth and depth to learning as well as concepts being reinforced over a period of time. the following is a gist of addendums introduced in classes 1-5:

  1. Measurements:

  1. Geometry:

  1. Statistics and Probability:

  1. Algebra:

Abstract Approach:

The CPA (Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract) approach was mentioned as an aim of the Mathematics curriculum, however the suggested SLOs mostly focused on teaching concepts as abstract. Thus keeping in mind the CPA Approach the SLOs have been reworded to encourage including concrete objects and pictorial representations while teaching and learning a variety of concepts.

Furthermore an essential aspect of CPA approach is making connections between different mathematical concepts and not being taught as an isolated concept. For instance addition could be of lengths, weights, mass, time, money etc however the concept of addition was only introduced through numbers. Thus these connections between topics have also been incorporated in the way the SLOs have been coined.

Progression Grid:

The progression grid throughout mentioned the specific SLOs which led to the main concept. For instance, read numbers up to 9 in numerals and in words, write numbers up to 9 in numerals and in word; read numbers up to 99; write numbers up to 99 etc. Therefore the progression grids have been modified to include the broader concept that the child has to achieve by the end of the academic year. The specific skills of these broader targets are provided in the curriculum template document.

Grade 6 to 8

Linear inequalities along with representation of the solution of linear inequalities on the number line to be included in class 8.
