Language and Literacy Development
Various aspects of a child’s development interact with and influence each other. One of the greatest influences are language development and Literacy. A child’s language and literacy skills form the foundation of academic development. In Grade 2, pupils build on the foundational reading and writing skills from Grade 1. These skills are strengthened and developed through application and extension. We encourage independence and responsibility through home reading and integrated studies during our classroom activities.
In Grade 2, Mathematical concepts covered in Grade 1 are revised and reinforced within the concrete developmental stage. We build on each child’s knowledge through personalized learning opportunities designed to develop and enhance a sound number concept. Problem-solving strategies and activities are core in exploring Mathematics and remain a focal point for the Grade 2 year.
