Prep to Grade Two are vital years – in Numeracy as well as Literacy. According to our National Curriculum (link to expected outcomes) at the conclusion of Grade Two your child should be an independent reader – ready to read to learn rather than still learning to read.
We teach our Grade One and Two students consonant blends, double vowels and long vowels as well as the digraphs relevant to their grade (and beyond). We work through the next 200 sight words and with their growing phonic awareness encourage them to be risk takers in their learning.
We track their reading levels into early chapter books and on to independent readers. We help them to grow in their writing – in vocabulary, sentence structure and expression, exploring and engaging in a variety of genres.
By the end of Grade Two, our young learners should have number sense, be able to add and subtract; to tell analogue time and recognise and count to a dollar among other skills in numeracy.
