Exercise: Answer the following questions based on Sample A timetable: a Monday Period b Monday Period c Monday Period period for promotion to Grade Monday. Possible answers: b.
The Subject Grouping Option (S.G.O) c.
The Common Timetable Option (C.T.O) This means that a teacher is presenting the
same subject (R.E) and the same topic to both grade groups at the same time and at the same level. On Friday period i. In the first year
you teach the syllabus of the higher grade and teach the work of the lower grade the following year thus.





If a teacher has three grades in his composite class the arrangement would be as per illustration below:
A star indicates what grades work should be taught in a given year. ii. Compare the syllabus
and pick common topics after which you add to this list those which are not common to each grade of the composite class. Having composed one list
of the syllabus share evenly the topics according to the numbers of grades in your composite class. The number of grades presupposes the number of years you will
be with particular composite class. nontimetable option in which pupils learn any subject(s) they want per day in any order.
one discussed in No. Education (S.M.E) and the Zambian Languages are differently treated in the Grades five to Seven timetable from the Grades one to four timetable. The grades five to seven
timetable shows that these subjects should be taught using the Subject Grouping Option to the entire composite class. The Grades
One to Four One indicates that the two subjects should be taught to only two of the four grades using the Subject Grouping Option. This
naturally means that in such a period (see Grade One to Four Timetable, period five) a teacher simultaneously uses the Subject Grouping Option as he teaches Z.L to grades One and Two and the Subject Staggering Option as he teachers the same subject to Grades Three and Four at their own level different from that for Grades One and Two. 2.
On this timetable, physical education, creative activities and practical skills are the subjects, which for the purpose of this combination have been identified for the Subject Grouping Option, and yet on the timetable for Grades Five to Seven three more subjects are taught in this way. These are
Spiritual and Moral Education, Zambian Languages. Environmental
Science and Music. This only highlights one important
thing about Multigrade timetabling that there are no hard and fast rules about what subject must be taught through what option. (F) GENERAL NOTES ON TIMETABLING 1.
In Multigrade proper subjects indicated for the Suject Grouping Option can very easily be converted to the Common Timetable Option by subgrouping two grades and teach those subjects for the grouped classes as in timetable No. respectively. MATHEMATICS SCHEME OF WORK FOR GRADES
