Acts House of Education prides itself in their Primary department which comprises Grade 1 to Grade 6. We enrol learners from the age of 6 years old. We follows the CAPS curriculum with class ratios of 1:24.
Guided reading is offered in Foundation Phase from Grade 1 - 3. This is a small-group instructional approach which is designed to provide the differentiated teaching of reading. Guided reading supports children in developing reading proficiency, with the small group dynamic allowing them to be taught in a way that’s more focused on their specific needs, which can accelerate their progress. The elements include:
Spiritual growth is at the heart of everything we do at Acts, therefore, learners are encouraged to engage in daily devotions, biblical assemblies and worship assemblies with the worship team of Acts Christian Church.
Our onsite Educational Psychologist looks after our learners' educational and emotional needs. We provide support for our learners to deal with the challenges of school life - in the classroom and on the field. We aim to improve the learning process and educational success of our learners. The educational psychologist works hand-in-hand with the teachers and parents for the success of the learner.
Our Primary learners start their ICT journey in Grade 4 with Block coding on the www.code.org platform. This international curriculum teaches our learners the fundamentals of critical thinking, problem solving and sequencing. These are important skills to have in a 4IR world.
The Foundation Phase of Acts Primary follows an integrated sport and cultural programme that include soccer, netball and softball. Intermediate Phase options include athletics, netball, softball, soccer, cricket, dance, public speaking and chess.
