Room 2


  • Welcome to the homepage of the Grade 1/2 class in Room 2!


    The Grade 1/2 students in Room 2 have made a positive start to the year, making a smooth transition into their new class. Students have arrived with an enthusiastic attitude towards their learning and have created an environment of resilience, high expectations, inclusiveness and enjoyment. We have spent some time early in the year collectively developing some expectations and rules which we believe are important to follow, as well as getting to know each other in further depth. Below is a brief outline of our class timetable and important events that will take place throughout the week this year.



    v Assembly at 9:00am

    v LOTE with Mrs Harding at 2:20pm


    v P.E with Mrs Taylor at 12:30pm


    v Science at 2:20pm

    v Big Write topic sent home


    v “Big Write” at 11.30am


    v Town library/school library every alternating week.


    Students in Room 2 will usually spend the morning engaging in literacy, working on their reading and writing skills. In the afternoon. students take part in daily Sounds Write sessions and usually learn Maths during this time. We utilise a range of ICT apps at school to further develop students’ literacy and numeracy skills. These include Mathletics, Reading Eggs, Epic Reading & Sunshine Online; and students are encouraged to use these at home to support their learning.

    On Wednesday, students will receive a Big Talk stimulus sheet. It is expected that these should be used to create discussion at home about potential ideas for the writing piece, before being returned to school on Thursday. It is also anticipated that each night/morning students in Room 2 will engage in supervised reading and mark this off in their reading log book, before it is returned to school each day.

    We look forward to seeing development in all of our students across the year 2020!
