objective of this stage is to help the children make
connections, between the meaningful experiences in life and the
courses of study. Math may be used while shopping, during games
and making deals, science reveals things that are seen in the
world around, social sciences add a meaning to the past. …. The
student is ready to be an active contributor to his/her own life
and is ready to discover more…. They are no longer just learning
to read, they are reading to learn.
The curriculum builds on the primary stage, and develops
children’s concepts and knowledge in Mathematics, English,
Science, Humanities and local languages. With an integrated
package of teaching, learning and assessment through the Litera
Octave approach, the child is directed towards independent
learning, and is guided to take responsibility.
