Foundation Phase: Grade R – 2
Ahoy me hearties! We would like to invite all Grade R to Grade 2 explorers to come and join us on a fun-filled month-long adventure exploring the seven seas! We will be looking into the history of ocean explorers as well as having a bit of pirate fun!
We will be delving into detail in both literacy and numeracy by using our thematic approach to learning. Tessellations in flags, measurement in building, counting our loot and working on our mapping skills. We will be playing battleship and have scavenger hunts. Keeping a captain’s log of our adventure and making lists of items needed (like vowels and sounds or books and shoes).
In this age group, abilities are sometimes quite different. Reading in a first language, reading in a second language, and understanding mathematical concepts vary greatly. We therefore present two groups, called Fern and Protea. The Fern group is still uncurling and waking up to the wonder that is language and maths. The Protea group has already developed stronger roots and can survive in tougher conditions. Please choose the group that your child belongs to.
