Welcome to Year 2 at our Saint Peter’s Catholic Primary School! This overview provides an outline of the key subjects and areas of focus, along with the incorporation of Catholic values and teachings, that your child will experience throughout the year. Year 2 is a special time as students continue to develop their academic skills while nurturing their faith and understanding of Catholic principles.
Religious Education holds a central place in the curriculum. Students will deepen their understanding of Catholic teachings, stories from the Bible, and the life and teachings of Jesus. They will explore concepts such as love, forgiveness, kindness, and compassion. Students will engage in prayer, reflection, and participate in religious celebrations.
Reading and Writing:
Students will develop their reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills. They will read stories with moral lessons, engage in discussions about the importance of empathy, respect, and faith in their daily lives. Students will also work on improving their grammar, vocabulary, and writing abilities through various activities and projects.
Mathematics in Year 2 focuses on building a strong foundation in numerical operations, problem-solving, and critical thinking skills. Students will engage in activities that reinforce their understanding of numbers, place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Math lessons will include real-life examples and problem-solving scenarios that encourage students to apply their mathematical knowledge to practical situations.
Students will learn about the natural world, plants, animals, and the environment. Students will engage in hands-on experiments, observations, and investigations to develop their scientific inquiry skills. They will also explore the responsibility of stewardship towards the Earth and God's creation.
In Year 2, we aim to provide a nurturing and faith-filled learning environment where students can grow academically, spiritually, and morally. Our teachers are committed to guiding students in their faith journey while fostering a love for learning. We look forward to partnering with you and your child to ensure a fulfilling and meaningful Year 2 experience at our Catholic school.
