Nolwazi and Gugu

March 2011

Throughout March the literacy team (Rachel, Kholiswa and Ntombi) have continued to work in two schools within Amaoti with classes of Grade 2 and 3 children and small groups of Grade 4 children. At present we are working with the same 360 children each day, supporting the development of reading and writing skills.

Rachel met with all the teachers we are working alongside to evaluate how the program has worked during the first term and to discuss how we continue in the second term. One teacher commented how she is really pleased as the children are able to apply the knowledge they are developing to the construction of sentences. All the meetings were very positive and teachers can see the progress the children are making. A key aspect of the program is to equip the existing teachers to teach children to read and write in English. The photo shows a Grade 3 teacher reinforcing sounds using flashcards. It’s wonderful to see teachers growing in confidence as they develop skills and realise they can teach English. Alongside Indlela – the project we partner with in Amaoti – we were able to interview and appoint two additional education tutors in March. Nolwazi and Gugu will start work at the beginning of the second term and enable us to work into a third school in Amaoti. We will also be able to improve the quality of the teaching, as children who are struggling in the large class context can be withdrawn and taught in a small group, ensuring their individual learning needs are met.
