Christian Religious Studies was initially a sub-subject under Religious and National Values (RNV) in the new National Curriculum. But following a protest in 2016 & 2017; the National Education Council directed that Religious Studies be made independent subjects. Hence, CRS is an independent and core subject of Basic Education in Nigeria. Schools teach CRS using this scheme or others drawn in line with this.
This CRS Teaching Scheme for Primary Six contains all the topics for the three terms in Primary 6. Topics are professionally divided into weeks.
