JUNIOR PRIMARY

The Junior Primary classrooms open up onto beautiful treelined pathways and flower beds. It is an environment where children who have had difficulty in a mainstream school are given a chance to breathe; an opportunity to be in a smaller class with needs being met on an individual basis in a sensitive, nurturing, and loving manner. Frequent movement breaks are offered right through the school day.

While the CAPS curriculum is taught using a multi-sensory approach, students are exposed to a variety of activities, all adding to their Junior Phase experience.

The teachers are qualified and experienced to deal with the assisted learning needs of each child, providing a caring and safe environment for individual development.

Vernacular offering:
Northern Sotho is offered from Grade R – 3 on a level of conversational language. Our aim is basic communicative competence.

The offering of a vernacular is optional and available from Grade 4 onwards, on request, at an extra cost for the parent.

SENIOR PRIMARY

Our Senior Primary Phase (Grade 4-7) aims to provide value-based teaching, where persevering through struggles, demonstrating tolerance for others and showing respect for our peers is important, whilst delivering an excellent education. We pride ourselves in happy children. We follow a mainstream CAPS curriculum, but our smaller classes allow for more time to be spent on concepts and consolidating foundational academic skills effectively.

Our dedicated team of experienced teachers create a nurturing environment where pupils feel safe and comfortable, helping children to unlock their full potential and become confident, well-rounded individuals. Our classrooms are well-equipped with technology and academic resources to create stimulating learning environments. Despite focusing on the five main subjects, our timetable also includes lessons in robotics, art, music, and physical education. Our Senior Primary phase follows a timetable, where pupils are taught with a multi-disciplinary approach by male and female teachers. The changing from class to class allows for frequent movement and brain breaks. We work diligently with our classes, aware of each child’s unique needs.

Our Senior Primary Phase offers a diverse range of extra mural activities that cater to many interests. This ranges from cultural activities, public speaking, chess, to a variety of sports. Our extra mural programme also includes social emotional learning groups, where children are helped to foster meaningful relationships and enter social settings with confidence. At the end of each term, we facilitate academic consolidation classes, reinforcing the curriculum taught throughout the term.

We understand the importance of a strong partnership between parents and teachers. This is why we foster open communication and deliver regular comprehensive feedback to parents. Together, we can ensure your child receives the best possible education and support.

PREPARATORY SCHOOL EXTRAMURALS

At Newton House School, education goes far beyond the confines of the classroom. Our school has prided itself in offering a comprehensive and diverse extra mural programme that has grown and flourished over time.

Term One and Four bursts with activity, from swimming to cricket, chess, tennis, karate and the creativity of arts and crafts.

In Term Two, netball and soccer take center stage. Alongside these team sports, the intellectual challenge of chess and the precision of tennisette provide a balanced blend of individual and group pursuits. The Eisteddfods showcase students’ talents in music, drama, and dance, highlighting their creative expressions.

As the school year progresses to Term Three, Newton House School encourages students to push their boundaries further. Activities like table tennis, volleyball, athletics and cross country are offered and the continuation of tennisette, netball, chess, karate and Eisteddfods provide more opportunities to develop the pupils talents on various platforms.

Newton House School does not just focus on nurturing individual talents; it also fosters a sense of healthy competition. Competing against high-ranking schools in the vicinity challenges students to refine their skills, work as a team and demonstrate sportsmanship.
