Year 2

During Year 2, students begin to put together what they have learned in Prep and Year 1 to develop deeper understandings. In Science, they explore how different materials can be recycled for new purposes, how they can use what they know about the needs of living things to help living things grow, how forces affect how objects move and how they can sustainably use water within the water cycle. In English, they learn to write a simple information report and persuasive text, as well as innovate on poems and familiar tales, while in Maths, students work with numbers to 1000.
Year 2 students will study Digital Technologies in Term 1, with our Digital Technology Coach and their class teacher. They will learn how to program in Scratch Junior using iPads.
During 2016, our Year 2 students will take part in a number of whole school events such as the Spell-a-thon, Art Show, Find the H.U.M.P and the H factor, as well as the Early Years Celebration.
The planned excursion program for Year 2 includes a visit by Reverse Garbage in Term 1 to learn about how we can combine materials based on their physical properties to recycle unwanted materials and a visit by the Goombuckar Indigenous Cultural Bus in Term 2 to learn about Aboriginal stories and places in our area. Also in Term 2, Year 2 students will visit the Redcliffe Museum to learn how changing technology has affected peoples’ lives, as well as  take part in an Out of the Box workshop here at school. In Term 3, students will take part in two Guided Local History Walks, to learn about significant places in our local community. In Term 4, Year 2 participate in our Learn to Swim program at the Redcliffe City Pool. More information about all these activities will be provided closer to the date.
The 2016 Year 2 curriculum documents are available for you to access. These include parent newsletters, information about excursions and parent information sessions, as well as English assessment tasks.
