Building Skills + Enhancing Lives

Early Learning Program at Die Bron Primary


We started the year with getting to know the grade R learners that are referred by their teachers into our program. We have been screening the children and through this process identifying each child’s needs, strengths and motivation. We are then formalising small groups suitable to the children’s personality and developmental stage. In the groups we work with the children through PLAY activities with the aim to reach school readiness by the end of the school year. We are also implementing a perceptual program which addresses underlying skills for school performance.

The first term was all about sensory exploration. We explored the sense of smell and taste as well as the tactile system through touch. The children identified and matched different smell items, tasting and identifying food, making their own delicious fragrant paint and play dough and exploring space with their bodies. Next term we continue our journey through the SENSES and we are exploring the body in space, its functions and its movement through PLAY.
