Sensational Sixes


This term the Grade 6 pupils have been learning about data handling, the importance and reasoning behind transforming boring data into eye-catching, visually stimulating graphs. The pupils were asked to each bring a packet of sweets to school, analyse the contents, collate the data and present their finding using a bar graph. A tasty treat and a great learning experience! Yum yum! IMG_7139 IMG_7141 IMG_7149  IMG_7146 (1)

Time for another exciting Grade 6 ILT

Next week sees the Elkanah House Grade 6 pupils involved in their termly ILT (Integrated Learning Task). The ILTs provide opportunity for three days of complete focus on the particular task at hand. All regular schooling comes to a halt as the pupils engage in the process of the challenge set by the teachers.

Pupils are encouraged to lead their own learning and take full responsibility as their teachers pull back on their usual involvement.

One of the highlights of last year’s ILTs (see 2013 pictures below) saw the pupils involved in the running of class elections. The process ran in a similar way to the process followed nationally in South Africa.

Watch this space for the 2014 version…

The Elkanah SP Gala 2014

055 042 009

On Saturday 8 March, the Elkanah Senior Primary Interhouse Gala took place.
The morning began with many passionate war cries ringing out around the pool, screams of Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald passion! The competition was fierce and and the Gees was rocking!
As expected, records were broken! With Duncan Edwards (three records)and Nuria Ribeiro (two records) being the most successful swimmers on the day!
In the end, Sapphire showed the most passion and cheer, walking away with the spirit cup. The real victory however, lay at the feet of Emerald House, the overall winners on the day!
Well done to Emerald House on a deserved victory!
Until we swim again…
