At Nursery 2, children have an increased sense of self confidence, they develop social skills and interact more during play time. They begin to understand more content, skills and concepts. Reading, phonics and numeracy skills are introduced to promote the child’s emergent capacity for language learning and acquisition.
The child’s physical development skills are also more developed and thus the child is able to exercise better self control and engage in greater challenges in both indoor and outdoor activities in school. We will continue to help your child progress and develop towards achieving these focused areas of competencies:
At this stage, your child will start to recite rhymes and finger plays, responds to questions appropriately and learn to express simple ideas and feelings in short and simple sentences. Your child will show interest in writing for specific purposes and start to make representational drawings.
Your child is able to associate life objects to pictures, starts to sequence different events and daily routines. There is a sense of awareness displayed of the daily roles of people around them and starts to take familiar roles in pretend play.
Your child starts to exercise greater self control and demonstrates emotional regulation in school with peers. Learning to handle his or her feelings, taking turns, and resolving conflicts are some of the essential life long learning skills your child will learn in school.
Gross and fine motor skills with the use of senses are demonstrated with higher competency. Your child will be able to make use of their senses in visual, sound, taste and smell with different abilities and discriminating skills.
Your child will engage in planning and also be able to reflect creative problem solving abilities through developmentally appropriate tasks in school. Through discovery, planning, finding various solutions, your child will be equipped with important skills for
21st Century education along with their peers.
