2023 LIFE SKILLS ATP GRADE 1

PERSONAL & SOCIAL WELLL-BEINGGUIDELINES ON HOW TO USE THE ADJUSTED CURRICULUM FOR LIFE SKILLS IN FOUNDATION PHASE:

  • Life Skills is the backbone to teaching and learning in Foundation Phase. This fact cannot be emphasized strong enough. It enables “deep teaching and learning” when learners use the vocabulary, created Shared reading and writing texts, dictionary skills, creative writing and so forth.

  • Beginning Knowledge and Personal and Social Well-being in the Life Skills curriculum are organized into topics. The use of topics is suggested as a means to integrate the content from the different study areas where possible and appropriate. Selected Life Skills topics in the CAPS for term 1 to 4 need to be covered

  • The Life Skills Curriculum for Term 1 to 4 is encapsulated in this document.

  • As in Term 2 to 4, the document includes Skills and Values, Core concepts and knowledge as well as possible resources to be used which is not included in CAPS.

  • Life Skills content has been scaffolded in a coherent, simple manner across the allocated weeks for each Term.

  • Four weeks has been allocated for ‘Readiness” for Grade 1 which includes Perceptual development and Phonological awareness for learners who may not be ready for the formal curriculum. Teaching and learning will continue after 2 weeks using the Topic as prescribed. PE and Creative Arts, Read-aloud, Shared reading, games, sing-along, puzzle building continues as in the Topic “Me”.

  • The Grade 1 context will determine whether some learners will need longer than 4 weeks and those few learners can continue the “Readiness Programme and Phonological awareness” alongside

    teaching. YOU MAY ADJUST THE WEEKS TO TEACH THE LIFE SKILLS TOPICS IN TERM 1 depending on how many weeks the learners needed to “catch up”.

  • Please note that exposing learners to Physical Education and Music allow for the development of Perceptual Development e.g. Auditory discrimination, crossing the midline, spatial orientation etc.

  • Grade 2 to 3 has an allocated 2 weeks for Baseline and orientation. You may use Term 4 Topics if you need to catch-up in Languages. Use the Topics, Content and skills to drive the Language teaching. YOU MAY ADJUST THE WEEKS TO TEACH THE LIFE SKILLS TOPICS IN TERM 1 depending on how many weeks your learners needed to “catch up”.

    PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING WHEN TEACHING THE MORE PRACTICAL STUDY AREAS (NATIRAL SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, CREATIVE ARTS AND PHYSICAL EDUCATION) OF LIFE SKILLS


  • PLAY, own choice and organized, is the most important pedagogy in Foundation Phase and cannot be neglected. This within COVID adherences.

  • Learners need to feel that they belong and part of a group as this foster as sense of belonging and acceptance, especially in these times.

  • Creative Art, singing and movement is a form of therapy to counteract the stresses which may be present. Psycho-social and emotional support is one of our priorities.

  • In most cases some activities have either been omitted or adapted to adhere to social distancing. THE ACTIVITIES MAY BE ADAPTED to suit the context.

    GUIDELINES FOR SCHOOL-BASED ASSESSMENT:

  • This will be a continuous, informal process through observation and mostly practical in nature. Learners are to have multiple opportunities before any formal recording or code is given.

  • Beginning Knowledge and Personal well-being may be a written assessment, however topics which included practical such as recording weather, plant growth, making a plant holder can be used as an assessment for both Life Skills and Home Language. Similarly, an art piece and ‘talking’ about your art piece can be used both for CA and Oral…Listening and Speaking. Use a rubric (one for each) with specific descriptors for each of the skills and outcomes specific to the product (oral and the art piece)

  • Use the SBA Guidelines – You may adapt some of the rubrics.

We find ourselves in a very different “new normal” and we would like to remind you to take care of yourselves. Thank you for your dedication and drive to

prepare our learners to be competent readers, critical thinkers and problem solvers.

DAILY COVID-19 MEASURES:

Daily hygiene routines are to be strictly followed:

TEACHERS TO ENSURE THEIR OWN SAFETY AND THE SAFETY OF THEIR LEARNERS IN THEIR OWN CONTEXTS

  • Beginning Knowledge and Personal and Social Well-being activities should address key concepts and skills relating to Social Science, Natural Science and Technology e.g. investigations, design, enquiry skills, etc. Ensure that vocabulary development is intentionally included to improve language.

  • Creative Arts [Visual Arts and Performing Arts] should be integrated very strongly with Languages.

  • Physical Education will be implemented for one hour per week, the 2nd hour will be utilised for reading of Personal and Social Well-being and Beginning Knowledge content knowledge e.g.

    comprehension pieces: “reading for meaning”, stories, poems etc.

  • Every Life Skills lesson will commence with a 5-minute lesson based on making learners aware of Covid-19 addressing washing hands, healthy habits, symptoms of Covid-19, social distancing, what and when to report to whom, discussing when a friend/family member pass away, etc.

  • Learners are expected to complete the DBE workbook activities and one or two written activities or practical per week in a class workbook for BK and PSW
