Grade 6

End your online Intermediate Phase school journey with Think Digital Academy.

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!

Considering online schooling for the first time?

This is the perfect time to make the move from traditional schooling to online. Here’s why.

New phase
By starting your Senior Phase online, you will lay a strong foundation for your high school career.

Individualised learning
Our flexible system allows you to plan your own academic schedule. This allows you to spend more time on the subjects which are quite challenging while you breeze through the lessons you pick up naturally. It also gives you more time to spend on some of your other talents – perhaps sport or a cultural activity?

Online support
Our friendly online tutors are available to offer you support and guidance throughout the year. They are just one click away.

Flexible assessments
Take your assessments when you are ready. Remember to prepare thoroughly, as you have only one attempt.

Track your progress
Our weekly reports will give you an accurate and thorough breakdown of all your activities on the system for that week. Our termly reports will reflect your final results.

Equipment and supplies needed

All you require is a laptop/tablet, wi-fi/data, a few exercise books or exam pads and stationery to take notes and make summaries.  Students use on average 3 gigs of data per month.

Questions and answers

Do you have a question about our Grade 6 online school? Check out our FAQs below:

  • Stay focused by taking notes while listening to your lessons.
  • Review your notes and make sure you understand the work before moving onto the next lesson.
  • Set up a weekly time table and do something fun during your breaks, like get some fresh air, kick a ball or go for a walk.

Check out our online clubs – from Anime to Pilates, there is bound to be something that appeals to you. Joining clubs or participating in a sport can both provide great opportunities to meet new people and develop new skills.

Although we provide a termly guideline of what needs to be completed, students can take ownership of their learning and pace themselves.  Don’t skip over subjects you don’t enjoy or which may be very challenging: spend more time on these and master them.  That way, you could increase your average.

Students write termly tests in Terms 1 and 3 and exams in Terms 2 and 4. There are no set dates, which gives students the freedom of taking the exams whenever they are ready to do so.

Sarabibi Varachia

I love that there is an option of tutor support, and that it can be done at my own pace, the free 14 day trial gives a good idea of the course before signing up.

Janine Gouws

My daughter has gone from strength to strength since joining Think Digital Academy. She is now so used to taking notes after watching and reading through the material that she has taken comprehensive notes during her Zoom swimming sessions and is able to explain everything that she has learnt easily from her notes. This is a child who really battled in the conventional schooling system and has undergone a tremendous change since joining Think Digital Academy. Thank you to the Think Digital Team you truly are a spectacular team 😁

Neldie VdMerwe Viljoen

It was the best decision to enroll my grade 10 and 12 kids here. They can't get enough of the interesting lessons. The people are so pleasant and always help with kindness, no matter how many times you call to ask for help. You are the BEST!!!!

Judy-anne Naude

Love the platform, very user friendly.

Annie Andrews

My boys are very much enjoying this. And I love that you can do this anywhere. We take our ipads to the park, and we work from there. I love it!

Bob Howard

TDA is by far the best home schooling platform in South Africa. As a digital home school, I as a student can be anywhere, literally, and do my work. My marks have gone up, I no longer have to travel 2 hours a day and I am much more focused on school work.

Michelle Ferreira

The best. My kids love it!

Lorinda Everson

Love them!! They allow children to be children!!

Great home school option - we had a great experience last year during Covid lockdown. Our matric daughter passed with a university exemption - we were very happy with the support she received while she was doing her online studies with them - thank you Think Digital!!!
