This study aimed on improving the performance of Grade VI learners through the use of Strategic Intervention Material in the new normal. It utilized experimental research design. The respondents were the 34 Grade VI pupils of Beguin Elementary School, Bulan III District of the S.Y. 2021-2022. A Strategic Intervention Material (SIM) was used as aid in improving the academic performance of Grade VI pupils in Science and post-assessment was conducted to prove the efficacy of the intervention material. The data that were gathered were analyzed and interpreted with the use of statistical tools and measures such as weighted mean and t test. Findings of the study show that there’s a highly significant difference in the performance of pupils using the Strategic Intervention Material as a tool to improve learners academic performance based from the post assessment conducted compared to the result of the summative test evaluated . After the use of Strategic Intervention Material that show values, it increased to 12.56 mean difference from the result of the sumative test which is 21.03 to post test result of 33.59. There is a highly significant increase on the results of the learners performance based from the performance level computed from 42.06 of the summative test to 67.18 of the post-test with 25.12 difference. The computed t test is 30.65 and the T value at 5% which is 0.00. Thus, the null hypothesis is rejected. Based from the findings, the following conclusions were drawn: the mean of the learners result before the use of Strategic Intervention Material was low with an average of 21.03. However, there’s a highly significant increase of 28% in the mean of the pupils post test result after the use of the SIM. It is noted with the performance level of 67.18 ; using of Strategic Intervention Material Tool has positive impact in enhancing the academic performance of the learners; and there was a significant increase on the average mean of Grade VI pupils after using the intervention. Although the target passing of 75% from the DepEd standard was not attained, a commendable improvement in the academic performance based from the result was regarded a success with nearing mastery level. It is recommended that teachers be encouraged to develop materials that can be used to enhance the academic performance of the pupils in the subject area; the SIM may be enhanced, reproduced, modified and be utilized by teachers and pupils in Bulan III District; and further researches may be conducted on the development, validation and effectiveness of instructional materials on the other grade levels or subjects.
