Foundation phase: Grade 1 to Grade 3
In the foundation phase, we focus on teaching the foundational skills, concepts and knowledge which are required for further learning. We offer a vibrant, invitational atmosphere where the learners enjoy coming to school and where they acquire a love for learning that will sustain them throughout their school years.
We acknowledge the potential in each learner to reach optimum ability; therefore, there is less emphasis on competitiveness and more emphasis on individual achievement. We create opportunities for personal growth in independence and responsibility so that learners can take up the challenge of being personally responsible and accountable for their actions in the intermediate phase.
The three main learning areas are:
Language – English home language and Afrikaans first additional language.
Mathematics – Mathematical concepts, number concepts and practical application.
Life Skills – Skills from a variety of learning areas will be included under Life Skills.
Perceptual development forms an integral part of all learning in the foundation phase, and includes gross motor skills, sensory motor integration, perceptual motor skills and language development. Robotics and computer lessons form part of the curriculum.
