Rosebank Primary Curriculum
The curriculum at Rosebank Primary is based on the Curriculum Assessment Policy Statements (CAPS) as designed by the Basic Department of Education. The teachers work hard to develop lessons that are relevant and exciting for our learners. As per our vision and mission statements, we aim to develop life-long learners who, once they leave school, are able to succeed in the world of work.
Many of our teachers use interactive whiteboards for teaching and learning, our Grade 4 to 7 learners go on an annual school tour, we organise educational presentations at the school and at various educational venues and we try to keep our learners informed of current events.
The CAPS curriculum is extensive and covers a range of subjects. Our Foundation Phase learners study two languages; English - as a Home Language (HL) and Afrikaans - as their First Additional Language (FAL). In Grade 4, our learners are asked to choose between Afrikaans or Zulu as their FAL and are required to continue with their choice until Grade 7.
In the Foundation Phase (Grade R-3), learners also study Maths and Life Skills. In the Intermediate Phase (Grade 4-6), our learners study English, Afrikaans OR Zulu, Maths, Natural Sciences & Technology, Social Science (History & Geography) and Life Skills. Our Grade 7 learners study English, Afrikaans OR Zulu, Maths, Natural Science, Social Science (History & Geography), Economic Management Science, Art & Culture, Technology and Life Orientation.
As part of their weekly timetable, our Foundation Phase learners also go the Media lessons and all learners spend time in either the Computer Centre or the Gauteng-on-Line Centre, developing their information technology skills.
