Second Grade


(7 years)

In our class we try to have a fun, respectful and positive environment. We stick to the golden rule “Respect towards each other”. All the students have the responsibility to help and support others when they are struggling to understand or in completing activities that are more difficult for others. We learn through hands on learning activities, doing a lot of craft things in science and social studies, and through structured and consistent practice everyday, but most of all through an engaging atmosphere between students and their teachers.
