Why you should go digital in Grade 6

Ages ago, around about the mid-90s, students used to learn through paper back textbooks behind tiny wooden desks, and once they’d reached the end of a lesson period, they’d have to pack it away, and read the page again during the next lesson, to refresh their memory. Sounds like a lot of work, right?

Nowadays, you have it super easy, thanks to our pre-recorded lessons. You get to pick up where you left off with just a click of a button. And, of course, rewind, fast-forward and play again if that’s what you’re wanting to do. No more interruptions mid-page either – you get to finish the entire lesson without having to stop mid-way just before getting to the juicy bits!

Think Digital Academy’s award-winning online Intermediate Phase school curriculum will prepare you for high school while building upon subjects and concepts you learned in Grades 4 and 5. You will continue with the same subjects but will dive a little deeper into them as we really start developing your thinking and reasoning skills.

Our personalised approach will allow you to gain momentum in your education while discovering a love for learning.

As a Think Digital student, you will receive:

  • Self-paced online classes;
  • Video-based lessons taught by some of the best teachers in the country;
  • Personalised support based on your individual needs.

If anything, our lessons will provide you with hours of educational entertainment and a few extra happy memories.

Before moving up to high school, the Think Digital programme will ensure that you fully comprehend each concept and subject. By working with some of the best tutors online, on a world-class learner management system, our students receive the best education possible.

How can you prepare for Grade 6?

Nobody is born with fabulous organisational skills: they have to be learned and practised. Being organised is key to being successful in your Senior Phase as your workload is noticeably greater. Time management skills are essential. Think about

  • making a daily to-do list to prioritise tasks,
  • organising all your study notes in folders,
  • using a calendar to stay focused and scheduling study time
  • remembering to schedule some fun activities to keep you active and creative too!
