Junior School – Additional Benefits

Reception – Year 6

Does your child enjoy creating, problem-solving and teamwork – or are they more independent workers?

Our Junior School teachers, with the help of small class sizes, cater for varied learning styles and needs.

RECEPTION – YEAR 2

In Reception to Year 2, students are provided with many hands-on learning experiences. Our teachers use Jolly Phonics to consolidate literary understanding. This supports an early grasp of reading skills and phonemic awareness from which all other learning areas can develop.

YEAR 3 – 6

Our Year 3 to 6 students engage in an exciting curriculum that builds on the skills and knowledge they acquired in the formation phase of their learning. All students form an understanding of their role in society, the importance of respect for others and having a servant heart.

SPECIALIST SUBJECTS

Junior School students enjoy the benefits of access to specialist subject teachers. These programmes include:

  • Physical Education
  • French
  • Music
  • Health (Reception to Year 3)
  • Digital Technology (Year 4 to 6)
  • Home Economics (Year 6)
  • Design and Technology: Woodwork (Year 6)

BUDDY PROGRAMMES

Buddy Programmes enable our Junior students to interact with our Senior students on a regular basis. This interaction aims to encourage a school-wide sense of community, cooperation and family.

SPORT

Students from Year 2 to 6 also have an opportunity to take part in a range of SACSA and SAPSASA sport competitions throughout the year.
