Senior Primary

In the Senior Primary, we aim to ensure that our students are not only prepared for life academically, but in all five focus areas for the school.

Subjects on offer include:

Grade 4-6:
Mathematics
English (written, grammar & spoken)
Life Skills
Afrikaans (both spoken & written)
Social Sciences
Natural Science

Grade 7:
Mathematics
English (written, grammar & spoken)
Life Skills

We also focus on ‘Inquiry Based Learning’ where our students’ questions and curiosity form the basis for lessons. These are fun, out-of-the-box days that are loved by all students!

At the end of each term, we host Enrichment Weeks. The aim of Enrichment Week is to broaden and expand learners’ horizons. These are important times because they involve life skills and enrichment activities that are vital to learner development.

One of our biggest focuses at Oasis is treating each child as an individual. It is imperative that we all understand that God created us all different so why try do things the same? Partnering with Learning Styles and utilizing the strategies in the classrooms have opened up the learning process. We have seen students who were ‘written off’ start to excel, average students improve in their retention of knowledge and highly academic students become more eager to engage.

Specific projects and reports to be completed by students to form part of their student portfolios. These are as follows:

  • Termly Book Reports: English and Afrikaans
  • Termly Orals: Prepared, Impromptu, Debates or Researched
  • Spelling Bees
  • Daily Maths drills, bonds and tables
  • Termly Creative Writing
  • Bi-Annual Essays
  • Bi-Annual Projects
  • Termly Community Service
