The ministry of education has resorted to teaching children in their mother tongues in hope to improve literacy.
This is intended for better understanding for the children.
According to the ministry learners can comprehend easily what they are taught since they are familiar with the language used.
Representing the minister of Education Ms Janet Kataaha, State Minister in charge of Primary Education Rosemary Seninde at the opening of the 4th Annual National Literacy Conference said that,
“The ministry plans to generate relevant assessment tools to assess the learners’competencies.”
The use of local language was started way back in 2007 and thus this comes as an emphasis on a plan that is already in place.
Thematic curriculum was intended to be used to instruct children from Primary One to Primary Three to promote interaction and participation in the learning process.
Additionally, it would improve children’s proficiency in reading and writing.
