Our Grade R is a multisensory, phonetic programme, designed to prepare your child for the individualized instruction of the ACE curriculum. They will become acquainted with phonics through a series of animal cartoons, songs and stories. These features will help them to learn and associate letter sounds with the alphabet sequence and word relations. The “Pre-School with Ace and Christi” programme is based on a complete sequence of concepts and skills to introduce the child to reading and numbers. An awareness of spatial concepts and their relationships, as well as the development of visual and auditory discrimination is part of the programme. All the exiting activities are structured in such a way to foster and strengthen fine and gross motor skills, as well as communication and social competence.
The Grade R’s are an integral part of the Logos family and as such they take part in all school activities – they join in on fun days, take part in inter-house sport competitions, compete in sporting events and attend assembly with the older students. Our children play in a safe environment, where team work and respect for one another is encouraged.
Our ACE Preschool programme is a vibrant exciting way for your child to develop a desire for reading and maths, and we look forward to welcoming your child into our Logos family.
Our Primary School begins with a solid foundation for reading, writing and mathematics. The ABC’s of ACE programme of Grade 1 follows the Pre-School with Ace and Christi programme of Grade R. The same phonetic sounds, cartoon animals and familiar tunes are used. The songs, stories, written work and tactile experiences all enhance a confidence in the mastery of phonic sounds.
With the tried and tested ABC’s programme, mastery of the alphabet letters and sounds ensures your child is well on his way to reading, within just a few months. It has been proven that children who learn to read phonetically, exhibit fewer reading or learning difficulties later in life. The programme also offers an excellent foundation in mathematics with the exploration of number value and mathematical concepts.
