Intersen phase

Intersen phase: Grade 4 to Grade 6
In the intersen phase, the emphasis is still on establishing basic foundations, but learners are led into more abstract thought and independent work. Application of skills and concepts is also a focus area in this phase. This phase aims to prepare learners for the senior phase in the high school. 

We aim to embrace 21st century learning by incorporating the use of tablets into our classrooms. We currently raise children who are ‘digital natives’. By embracing this innovative technology into our schools, we are speaking the language our learners understand.

To align with 21st century skills Curro Heritage House focuses on core subjects, namely Mathematics, Languages, Science and Technology. 

Mathematics 
The Mathematics curriculum has been rewritten to allow for a learner-centric, problem-solving approach. 

Languages 
Curro Heritage House uses an individualised approach of matching learners to book levels as well as using guided reading and writing when teaching languages. Added to this is the implementation of reciprocal teaching of reading to enhance each learner’s deeper reading comprehension.  

Science and Technology 
In Robotics learners build and program Lego robots for 25% of the tuition time. The Science curriculum has been adapted to include 21st century content and learning.
