Grade R

The Foundation


Our Grade R unit is a loving, nurturing environment where children can develop solid values and morals. We focus on the development of the whole child – emotionally, physically, socially and cognitively.


During this year of school we explore the Letterland programme to build an awareness of sounds and letters. Our formal lessons incorporate and extend the CAPS curriculum for Grade R. The Grade R unit boasts an outdoor area where children can extend their knowledge and skills. Activities include gardening, construction, water play, building in the sandpit and strengthening their muscles on the monkey bars.

Our Promise

We ensure that the Grade R unit is structured to encourage opportunity for both formal and informal learning throughout the day. Children have the opportunity to visit the newly refurbished school library once a week. Here the children experience the joy of reading and they are encouraged to take books home to enjoy reading at home. Information technology is included in the curriculum with small grouped learners visiting the computer centre once a week.

The Fun

The children have lots of fun learning about music and movement with our specialist teacher. Grade R is an exciting year where the children are introduced to many new experiences and activities. The also do:
