Vula Bula Maths Programme Grade 1 ( isiXhosa)

Between 2014 and 2015, COUNT developed a parallel Grade 1 Maths course in isiXhosa to link with the popular Vula Bula Readers developed by the Molteno Institute for Language and Literacy, with a grant made available from the Anglo-American Chairman’s Fund. The materials were extensively trialed in the Engcobo District in the Eastern Cape in 2015.

We are together reviewing how to take these forward, by translating the materials into other languages, re-packaging the activities as worksheets that will be available on both partner’s websites and via cell phone or tablets. Our longer term aim is to develop maths materials right through from Grades 1-3, that support and link with the Vula Bula Reading Programme, being completed by Molteno.
