  • I can work and learn purposefully!
  • I will work purposefully and learn!

Academics - Foundation Phase

 The requirement for a learner to progress to the next Grade in the Foundation Phase is as follows:


  • Adequate Achievement (Level 4) for Home Language
  • Moderate Achievement (Level 3) for First Additional Language
  • Moderate Achievement (Level 3) for Mathematics

As guided by the National policy programme and promotion requirements of the National Curriculum Statement, pupils have 4 subjects taught to them in the Foundation phase:

 

  • Home language and First Additional language (Components: Listening and speaking; Reading and phonics; Writing and Handwriting)
  • Mathematics (Components: Numbers, Operations and relationships; Patterns, Functions and algebra; Space and shape; Measurement; Data handling)
  • Life Skills (Components: Beginning Knowledge and Personal and Social Well-being; Creative Arts; Physical Education)

 

The CAPS document provides a number of activities that are made up of a number of parts dealing with different components of the subject. The 7-point rating scale is used to determine the promotion marks. All the subjects are divided into practical, speaking (oral) and writing to determine a combined promotion mark per subject. Assessments are prescribed in the CAPS Documents and the marks for the different assessments are guided by SASAMS.
