Grade 3

Before and Beyond

In Mathematics we consolidate Grade 1 and Grade 2 work and build on those concepts in order for the learners to be confident as they go into the Inter Sen phase. Literacy is developed both grammatically and with creative writing. The practise of reading is still a large part of Grade 3 with an emphasis on fluency and expression. Afrikaans and Xhosa are part of our literacy programme. In Grade 3 we also learn cursive handwriting.
