What are you reading with your children this holiday?

Over the holiday period, we encourage our families to be reading with their children.

Why not continue exploring the Chronicles of Narnia as a family, by reading the first book, The Magician's Nephew, together?

CURRICULUM | BIBLE

At Three Peaks our children start each day learning from the Bible.

Our hope is that our children would grow to possess a Bible-shaped worldview that they own in their heads and hearts that reflects the truth of who God is, who they are in Christ, what the hope of the Gospel is, who their neighbour is, and what their world is.

FIELD TRIP | African Dinosaurs at the Iziko Museum

Our Grade 2-4’s recently spent the morning exploring the African Dinosaur exhibit and getting a sense of the size of the dinosaurs they have been studying in class.

We began our tour at the map of Africa, looking at the distribution of the various fossils across our continent. The children then visited the different exhibits - carefully observing them and seeing what they could deduce from the displays. For example:

- What do the size and shape of the bones tell about this animal’s behaviour?
- What clues do we have that this dinosaur could run fast?
- How is his body built for speed?
- What can we deduce about this creature from its teeth?

CURRICULUM | XHOSA

“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.” - Nelson Mandela

We are very excited to welcome Titshalakazi Nobuhle to Three Peaks this year. The children are taking great delight in their Xhosa lessons. Our pre-schoolers have been learning how to greet their teachers, parents, grandparents, brothers and sisters.

ONE OF OUR CORE BELIEFS | Children are born persons

We attempt to define a person, the most commonplace person we know, but he will not submit to bounds; some unexpected beauty of nature breaks out; we find he is not what we thought and begin to suspect that every person exceeds our power of measurement. I believe that the first article of a valid educational creed — ‘Children are born persons’ — is of a revolutionary character.

WELCOME BACK to all our families - old and new!

We began the year with a special guest at our first assembly - Dr Peace Francis - currently interning at Baragwanath hospital, the largest hospital in Africa.

She spoke to the children about her childhood, her faith and choosing to study medicine. She encouraged them to work hard and make the most of the opportunities, gifts and talents that God has given each of them. She shared about the power of language and how being able to speak multiple languages helps her connect with and understand her patients.

Thank you Dr. Francis for taking the time to inspire our children!

CURRICULUM | 🌿 Nature Studies field trip up Table Mountain🌿

One of our inspirational subjects at Three Peaks School is Nature Study, the foundation of Science.

We are so privileged to live in a city surrounded on all sides by such breathtaking natural beauty. Our Grade R-3 children recently delighted in experiencing the wonders of our natural heritage.

They thoroughly enjoyed their trip up the Table Mountain Aerial Cableway and ‘class in the clouds’.

DISABILITY AWARENESS MONTH | Following the example of their friend who has no arms, the Grade R-3 children attempted to write their names and draw with chalk, while keeping their hands behind their backs. This exercise was used to help the children stop and consider what it might be like to live in a different body. Some persevered with their feet, others moved into a different position to use their mouths instead.

We discussed what this was like - how fun it was to see what their feet were capable of; how strong your core muscles need to be to balance without arms; how awful chalk tastes; how it was difficult to struggle with drawing when you're usually good at it.

We also spoke about how people with struggles may get more attention and while this may be appropriate, it is also difficult for siblings and friends around them who may feel it is unfair.

INTRODUCING AUNTY JO | Pre-School Teacher

Jo-Ann Scheepers, fondly known by all as ‘Aunty Jo’, has taught at Gardens Nook Pre-School, since its inception.

This is what she says about teaching here:
“I could not have asked for a more loving, kind, generous and joy filled space to spend my mornings teaching little ones.

The children are welcomed into this space, where they are exposed to a feast of rich ideas, beauty and wonder at the world around them while still being allowed to explore, play, get muddy and dirty and have wonderful adventures in our beautiful garden.

This environment not only feeds the souls of these precious little ones, but those of the teachers! It is a joy to come to school each morning and greet those little faces and see what God has in store for us to learn from that day. The teaching team is dedicated, kind, supportive and loving towards one another as we journey together in learning how to impart these wonderful ideas and God's truth in the classroom.”

DRAMA | The Lion, The Witch & the Wardrobe.

We are so proud of our Grade 1-3 children who recently staged our first ever drama production, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. The book by C.S. Lewis forms part of the school curriculum and our very own Mrs Harrower wrote and directed the play.

The children’s consistent hard work each day at school and at home paid off handsomely - the expectation was high and they rose to meet it on every level. Congratulations children!

A huge thank you and congratulations must also go to Mrs. Harrower and all who were involved behind the scenes in making the evening such an incredible success.

Our Primary School children’s current history reading is the book ‘The Day Gogo Went to Vote'. Their teachers have been talking to them about what is happening in our city and nation at the moment.

In the Foundation Phase, children are introduced to both South African history as well as world history. These are carefully and sensitively engaged through the use of literature and current affairs.
