Programmes for Nursery 2
At Nursery 2, your child is just at the beginning of his or her learning journey. At The Eton Academy, we believe in nurturing each child’s curiosity about learning through the use of structured-inquiry in our enrichment classes.
Using investigative learning, interactive activities and discussions, our teachers will help your child to make authentic connections to the real world, as well as enable your preschool child to build confidence in asking questions and expressing his or her own thoughts and feelings.
Class duration: 1 hour 45 mins
Class size: Maximum 8 students
Nursery 2 English
- WRITE ON!
We get your child interested in penmanship and writing by inquiring into carefully curated children’s books, learning from the best writing techniques and how to emulate them.
- RAISING READERS
We incorporate phonics, sight words, songs and rhymes into our lessons to reinforce the phonics sounds learnt to help your child read and blend words easily, building a strong foundation and an interest in reading.
- BE HEARD
Our lessons include weekly inquiry themes and class discussions to encourage your child to be an active listener and an articulate speaker, developing their own voice and perspective.
- BE CURIOUS
Your child will be exposed to a wide range of themes to help your child to draw connections to daily life (e.g. biodiversity, young game changers) to get them to think beyond the classroom academia.
- BE INFORMED
After each lesson, parents receive a summary of what was covered in class, as well as suggested activities to reinforce learning at home.
