Grade 1 & 2

 

 

In Grades 1 & 2 there are nine classes, comprising of grades averaging 21 students.  The focus is largely on foundation Literacy and Numeracy Skills and the development of physical, personal and social capabilities.  Each day begins with reading in the classroom where parents are encouraged to assist.  Children requiring additional reading support have daily reading sessions in our successful Literacy Lab.  Children also have the opportunity to have their knowledge and understanding in English and Mathematics extended through small group extension programs.

  

Weekly Specialist programs include: Physical Education, German, Science, Art and Performing Arts sessions which complement the other wonderful activities experienced by the students. ICT is incorporated into everyday learning through many forms with the mindset of developing our students into 21st century citizens.  Each classroom is equipped with computers and iPads.  As well as Literacy, Numeracy and Integrated Studies (which includes our Challenge Based Learning), a number of other programs make up the Level 1 & 2 curriculum. The list below is just a sample of the wonderful activities our Level 1 & 2 students experience –
