Welcome to 12B
Room 12B is one of the Grade 2 classes this year at Quarry Hill Primary School consisting of 22 students.
Within the Grade 2 unit our main focus in the classroom is Literacy and Numeracy. Every student participates in a minimum of one hour a day of reading, writing and mathematics, as well as specialist activities every week. This year students have Art with Miss Brooke Wilson, Music with Mr Jeremie Collard, Chinese with Miss Sheng Wang and PE with Mr Ross Turner.
In addition, the Grade 2 students have a library session once a week with their classroom teacher. Students get the chance to borrow readers as well as free-choice books. Every Friday morning in Room 12B, we have ‘free choice reading’ where students can read what they like with a friend. Students also have regular PE sessions with their classroom teacher. They have an hour and a half working on fundamental motor skills through fun games.
Students also participate in an hour of construction time where they work together to build and play. Each Monday students partake in circle time. Circle time is a time where students develop a wide range of skills and attitudes such as confidence, self-esteem, talking and listening. In Grade 2 students get the opportunity to learn and develop ICT skills. Students practice their typing and learn the basic functions of a computer.
In Term 1 the Grade 2 students are establishing their classroom routines and procedures during the COLE (Creating our Learning Environment) program. We are also focusing on ‘Communities’ this term. The Grade 2’s are looking at how we are connected to different communities and exploring different features in a suburb.
