Foundation phase: Grade R to Grade 3
Grade R is the bridge from the tangible world to the world of symbols and numbers in Grade 1. Therefore, we offer on an integrated play-based programme that aims to develop the learner’s phonological, literacy, mathematical, and creative problem-solving skills in a fun way. Our specialised programmes include GeoGenius, which teaches young learners the basics of geometry by playing and building with three-dimensional objects of different sizes, shapes and elasticity.
In Grade 1 to Grade 3 we focus on teaching the basic skills, concepts and knowledge required for further learning. We offer a vibrant, invitational atmosphere where learners enjoy coming to school and where they acquire a love for learning that will sustain them throughout their school years. We also create opportunities for personal growth so that learners can become personally responsible and accountable for their actions in the intermediate phase.
Intermediate phase: Grade 4 to Grade 6 (and Grade 7)
In these grades, the emphasis is still on establishing basic foundations, but learners are led into more abstract thought and independent work. Learners are prepared for high school by teaching them how to apply the skills and concepts they have learned. We also promote creativity and critical thinking by encouraging learners to make their own choices within well-established boundaries.
Our focussed subjects provide learner with a solid foundation on which to excel in high school and, later on, make subject choices that would benefit their futures dreams.
