RSA NCS CAPS Grade 4 First Additional Language English Curriculum

The First Additional Language curriculum is packaged according to the following skills - Listening and Speaking, Reading and Viewing, Writing and Presenting, Language Structures and Conventions. In the Intermediate and Senior Phases, learners continue to strengthen their listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. At this stage the majority of children are learning through the medium of their First Additional Language, English, and should be getting more exposure to it. Greater emphasis is therefore placed on using the First Additional Language for the purposes of thinking and reasoning. This enables learners to develop their cognitive academic skills, which they need to study subjects like Science in English. They also engage more with literary texts and begin to develop aesthetic and imaginative ability in their Additional Language.
