As stipulated by the Western Cape Education Department, Longacres Private School in Langebaan follows the CAPS integrated curriculum. All Longacres private school's staff members have attended extensive CAPS training and continue attending workshops to keep updated with new developments.

The Longacres Private School incorporated technology and various practical sessions into the curriculum to ensure that every pupil is challenged, intrigued and inspired daily.

Foundation Phase Activities

Grade 1 Gardening

“Why try to explain miracles to your kids when you can just have them plant a garden.”

Grade 1 Longacres Private School's pupils are all involved in our gardening program. We prepare the soil, plant seeds, weed, maintain our patch and watch our crops grow. Pupils learn about seasonal vegetables, as well as various other plants and crops.


 

Grade 1 Experi-Buddies

“If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough” - Albert Einstein

Experi-buddies is an educational extra-mural science programme that uses experiments to show young children that the world of science can be fun. This is done by means of interactive projects, exciting demonstrations and basic experiments. We aim to make your child's introduction to science an unforgettable experience.


 

Grade 2 French Knitting

“Knitting makes me happy. Being happy is good for my health. Therefore knitting is good for my health.”

At Longacres Private School in Langebaan, each pupil has a creative side and with this activity children get another oppourtunity to explore their creativity. Pupils are challenged mentally and attempt practical problem solving whilst working on the creations.


 

Grade 3 Knitting

“In the rhythm of the needles, there is music for the soul.”

Knitting isn't just for grannies and boring aunts. No, at Longacres, the grade 3 classes will learn all the skills and enjoyment of this ancient art. We will also apply our knitwear to entrepreneurship to see who is the boss of our new generation.


 

Music Education

“Every child is talented. Any child who is properly trained can develop musical ability, just as all children develop the ability to speak their mother tongue. The potential of every child is unlimited”

The focus in music education is on skills development, communication and creativity. Music offers a way for learners to get to know themselves, but also others. Research shows that children who participate in music activities are more often chosen as leaders and perform better academically.

Junior Choir

Technology Integration

“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn”

In all grades, each student has access to an iPad. This exciting new technology is used to draft and edit writing, practice math facts, access online educational programs, and create student projects. Students are more engaged and willing to participate in the learning process.Wireless capability means teachers aren't tied to their computer, and don’t need to worry about someone tripping over cables. A variety of differentiated teaching methods are geared to the individual learner. At any time there may be small groups working together, hands-on activities, and whole group instruction using the Smart Boards.
