Our Learning…. in Grade 1/2


This Term, we have been focusing on writing procedural texts, specifically on writing step-by-step instructions, for example, this week we have been focusing on ‘How to draw a house.’ Our students have been following the writing process, from brainstorming and drafting to revising and editing, with an emphasis on the use of verbs and precise language. They have also been engaging in peer-review activities to provide constructive feedback to their classmates. By the end of the week, our young writers will be proudly publishing their work, showcasing their newfound understanding and skills in procedural writing. We are thrilled with their progress and look forward to sharing their accomplishments with you! Additionally, we will be exploring various real-life applications of procedural writing, helping students to make connections between the classroom and the world around them.


In our 1/2 classes, we have been diving into the exciting world of numeracy! This week, our focus has been on collecting data, creating graphs, and exploring the concept of chance. Students have been learning to determine the likelihood of an event occurring, using language such as “might happen,” “will happen,” and “won’t happen” to describe various scenarios. This has been an excellent opportunity for them to build their critical thinking skills and apply them to real-life situations.

Additionally, we have been practicing skip counting by 2s, 5s, and 10s, reinforcing the foundations of multiplication and developing our students’ mental math abilities. These essential numeracy skills will be beneficial as they progress through their mathematical journey.


We would like to take a moment to acknowledge and thank you for your dedication to supporting your child’s reading at home. Reading together not only strengthens your child’s literacy skills but also fosters a love for reading that will last a lifetime. The time and effort you invest in encouraging your child to read and engage with their Take Home Readers is invaluable and has a significant impact on their progress and confidence as readers.

We understand that life can be busy, and we truly appreciate the commitment you have shown in making reading a priority in your family’s routine. Your partnership in your child’s education is vital, and we are grateful for your continued support.
