Junior 1-6 / Academics / Grade 2

Grade 2 Overview

Grade 2 at Aberdeen Hall focuses on helping students develop and strengthen the skills they will require to succeed throughout the rest of their school career. We offer all core subjects as well as an integrated curriculum and specialist instruction in French, Drama, Music and P.E.


Grade 2 Highlights

Key Skills:

Grade 2 students at Aberdeen Hall begin to develop a sense of independence towards their learning. Students are encouraged to challenge themselves in all areas of the curriculum with a focus on reading and writing above grade level. 

Special Projects:

One highlight of our curriculum includes the integrated Tower Bridge Project in which students focus on a topic rather than a curriculum subject. This project combines Science, Social Studies, Art, Math and Language Arts. Another major highlight is our Speech Arts Celebration at the end of Term 2 where students prepare a speech on a research topic of their choosing to present to the rest of the class. In terms of Outreach Initiatives, out Grade 2 students organize our annual Toy & Clothing Drive in December with all proceeds going to the SHARE Society.
