CAPS regular.jpg

New in 2024

We are excited to announce a revised and revitalised CAPS Premium Grade R Programme!

There are now two options to choose between for CAPS Grade R

Option one - CAPS Regular Programme. This is our original CAPS programme for Grade R.

Option two - CAPS Premium Programme. This is the revised programme being launched in 2024.

THINGS TO KNOW

  • We will be following the CAPS document for Grade R. ALL the requirements for each term will be met during the term.

  • School term lengths differ from year to year and so there will be 10 topics each term (as an average number of weeks) except the 4th term which will have 8.

  • The topics will be according to the CAPS document and therefore the same as our previous CAPS programme. 

BUT
Don't despair! This will be a very different programme with a very large percentage of new material with comprehensive guidebooks and online resources. There are some extra topics (look for *) during the year as well, see below for the list.

  • The programme has been developed in consultation with Grade R teachers and we are confident you will love it!

  • Because this programme is new, we can only offer it ‘term by term’ for 2024.

WHAT IS NEW?

  1. 1. Instead of a tear-off pad the children have a Mathematics book and a Language book. 50 activities in each.

  2. 2. On each page is an assessment block, record your assessment on the page.

  3. 3. The tear-off pad has the cut-out pictures (colour as well as black and white) used to complete the activities.

  4. 4. Also the individual assessment rubrics to tear out and file.

  5. 5. The Mathematics cards and Language cards are in colour and are used individually and collectively as a class.

  6. 6. Online resources for each guidebook.

WHAT DO WE GET FOR THE CHILDREN EACH TERM?

A folder containing:

  • A4 book of Language activity sheets.

  • A4 book of Mathematics activity sheets.

  • A4 tear-off cut out pad, with colour and black and white pages. 

  • This pad also has the individual rubrics (for observation and assessment) to tear out and file.

  • A2 poster for revision and assessment.

  • Set of A7 colour language cards.

  • Set of A6 colour mathematics cards. See below for more about these cards.

  • End-of-term report.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT ABOUT THE CARDS?

They are a collectable resource for the teacher!

  • Each child receives a set of Mathematics and Language cards in their folder.

  • But there are 9 DIFFERENT sets of Mathematics cards and 4 DIFFERENT sets of Language cards, so they don't all get an identical set.

They are in colour!

Please download the PDF GUIDE TO THE CAPS PREMIUM CARDS for more information and to see the whole collection.

IMPROVED ASSESSMENT TOOLS

  • There is a unique CAPS Grade R requirements list which gives each requirement a reference number.

  • The list shows which requirements are met using the Activity Sheets and which during the Daily Lesson Plans.

  • The requirement and the ref. number are found on the activity sheets and guidebook pages.

  • Then carried over to the assessment rubrics.

  • The same requirements listed on the rubrics are carried over to the end-of-term report.
