Fundamental Years

Primary 2 programmes introduce your child to key concepts needed for middle primary school years. Your child will work on mastering the basics of each subject while exploring various topics that help them make a real connection between what they learn in school and the world around them. Communication, presentation of ideas and interaction with others remain an integral part of learning and development.

Your child will continue building on his or her foundation in the language by learning new concepts and expanding his or her vocabulary. There will also be increased focus on his or her writing and reading skills. Find out more.
