In Year 2, students are consolidating and building upon knowledge and skills learnt in Year 1. Students continue to develop friendships and engage in group activities with different individuals and build on their social skills. Our Peer Support program supports this.
As part of our daily literacy routine, students receive explicit instruction in reading and writing strategies in small groups. Students then rotate to independent individual or group activities.
Throughout the year, our students have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of activities. They are provided with opportunities to be involved in enrichment groups from a range of key learning areas.
Students from Kindergarten to Year 2 engage in creative and performing art rotations each week. They participate in dance, music, visual arts, drama, environmental education and indigenous studies. This allows them to work in different rooms around the school with teachers who have a passion for that subject.
Each term we run a science day where students rotate throughout Stage 1 classes to experience a variety of scientific investigations that link to our science unit.
Our students have the opportunity to attend excursions and incursions that enhance our learning programs and provide rich experiences.
In Year 2 students are able to nominate to be a part of the student representative council where they attend meetings and put forward ideas to improve our school community.
