Rosebank Primary follows the National Curriculum and Assessment Policy Statement (CAPS) as designed by the Basic Department of Education. The teachers work hard to develop lessons that are relevant and exciting for our learners.
Our strategy is to build an educational foundation for future leaders.
All of our classrooms have interactive SMART boards for teaching and learning and our teachers incorporate gamification and interactive learning into lessons, to accommodate all the learning styles within a lesson.
We also try as much as possible to organise an annual school tour for our Grade 4 to 7 learners (at an additional cost to the parent). This ranges from 2 to 4 nights, depending on the venue and the age of the learners.
As part of a Learner Activity Fee (LAF) that is paid in January of each year, we also organise onsite educational presentations such as “Hooked on Books and On Cue Theatre.
As part of the day-today curriculum, our learners study the following subjects:
GRADE 1 – 3 (Foundation Phase):
GRADE 4 – 6 (Intermediate Phase):
GRADE 7 (Senior Phase):
Each morning starts in the register classroom, with a DEAR (Drop Everything & Read) lesson. We believe that reading helps to expand the mind and give children more ideas to be creative in their writing. It builds vocabulary. Reading also allows for creative thinking and inspires you when you are feeling bored. Reading also helps get the creative side of your brain thinking.
