GRADE R NEWS - FIRST TERM 2013
We are following the Caps syllabus, which sets out and gives ideas for introducing the themes.
We have completed: My body, Senses, My family, Being Fit and Healthy Food.
The children have enjoyed the outdoor activities such as Mini-Cricket, Tennisette and swimming. The artwork is theme related and the children take home their work every month. Computers twice a week is a huge highlight. Gross-Motor, where we concentrate on balance, ball skills and locomotion is three times a week. Music Ring, twice a week, where we learn action songs and introduce Afrikaans and Xhosa. In addition to the Music Ring the children have a formal music lesson, where they learn notation and rhythm by using the percussion and marimba instruments.
We are going through the various Bible stories of Genesis. The children enjoy some fun games and songs.
The children bake something related to the theme every fortnight. They enjoyed making gingerbread men, popcorn and caramel tart.
