1.1.4 Memorandum 

1.1.5 Introduction 

In Grade 2 the learners will build new experiences in the additional language on those learnt in Grade 1 
as well as those learnt in their Home Language. They will continue to need many listening and speaking 
opportunities so as to develop their reading and writing skills in Grade 2. 

A wide vocabulary is very important. The ICS modules for Grade 2 provide opportunities for the revision 
of Grade 1 vocabulary and they gradually introduce and consolidate new vocabulary by means of poems, 
rhymes, stories, riddles and jokes and games to play. 

Learners are encouraged to answer questions, and to take part in discussions and conversations on familiar 
topics. 

The attention is drawn to the sounds of letters in the additional language and learners discover that some 
letters sound the same as in their home language whereas others differ. 

Although the educator will attend to correct pronunciation at this stage, learners should always be 
encouraged to speak the additional language without feeling incompetent and self-conscious. 

By keeping the dictionary pages at the end of each module in a file, learners can revise the vocabulary 
and use these lists as a personal dictionary to which they can refer when completing or writing sentences 
and stories. 

Time scheduled for the modules 1 to 8 

It is suggested that the average learners complete all eight modules during the year, completing ± two 
modules per term. 

The slower learners will proceed at their own pace while the quick learners can be given more tasks if 
necessary. 

All learners in Grade 2 should be exposed to all the listening, speaking and reading activities in these 
eight modules to ensure that progression occurs throughout. 

Learners are introduced to the usual farmyard animals, what they eat, the sounds they make and how 
they are cared for by the farmer through poems to listen to and to recite, picture stories to read and activities

• A poem to listen to. . . 




On the farm 

Listen to the chitter chatter 
on the farm out there- 
the animals want their food today 
Hay for me", says the tall black mare. 
The cats are mewing 
and the cows are lowing, 
the dogs are barking, 
and cocks are crowing. 
The ducks auack-auack, 
and the pigs grunt-grunt, 
the hens and the chicks 
all gather up front. 
Only Kitty Cat is sleeping, 
with her eye on the door, 
she's already seen the farmer 
bringing food galore!

1.6.3 EDUCATOR SECTION 

1.6.4 Memorandum 

In Grade 2 the learners will build new experiences in the additional language on those learnt in Grade 1 
as well as those learnt in their Home Language. They will continue to need many listening and speaking 
opportunities so as to develop their reading and writing skills in Grade 2. 

A wide vocabulary is very important. The ICS modules for Grade 2 provide opportunities for the revision 
of Grade 1 vocabulary and they gradually introduce and consolidate new vocabulary by means of poems, 
rhymes, stories, riddles and jokes and games to play. 

Learners are encouraged to answer questions, and to take part in discussions and conversations on familiar 
topics. 

The attention is drawn to the sounds of letters in the additional language and learners discover that some 
letters sound the same as in their home language whereas others differ. 

Although the educator will attend to correct pronunciation at this stage, learners should always be 
encouraged to speak the additional language without feeling incompetent and self-conscious. 

By keeping the dictionary pages at the end of each module in a file, learners can revise the vocabulary 
and use these lists as a personal dictionary to which they can refer when completing or writing sentences 
and stories. 

Time scheduled for the modules 1 to 8 

It is suggested that the average learners complete all eight modules during the year, completing ± two 
modules per term. 

The slower learners will proceed at their own pace while the quick learners can be given more tasks if 
necessary. 

All learners in Grade 2 should be exposed to all the listening, speaking and reading activities in these 
eight modules to ensure that progression occurs throughout. 

Farmer Brown and his family are introduced and activities involve their responsibilities and the jobs they 
do. Names of fruits and vegetables are extended, revised and consolidated by means of interesting activities. 

Reading of riddles and stories are encouraged. 

A counting rhyme is included and coins are counted integrating the learning area of mathematics with 
that of Literacy. 

The basics of economics are introduced as learners understand the farmer produces the products to sell 
in order to have money to buy necessities for his family. 

Integration of themes 

• Social Justices 

The farmer needs people to help him work on the farm - he creates job opportunities and the workers in 
turn have a responsibility towards their employer 

• Human Rights 

Everyone has the right to earn money so as to become self-sustaining. 

The farmer cares for his crops and his family and shows responsibility by handling his finances in a 
capable way. 

The farmers grows fruit and vegetables and sells these to the people.

Bobtail's my name. 
I'm a bunny you see, 
and I live with my Mumrm 
and brothers three. 

My tail goes a-bobbing - 
so fluffy and white, 
when I hop over fields 
in the bright moonlight. 

Sometimes I'm naughty, 
and sometimes I'm good. 
I only play tricks 
when I'm looking for food.

2.2.3 EDUCATOR SECTION 

2.2.4 Memorandum 

In Grade 2 the learners will build new experiences in the additional language on those learnt in Grade 1 
as well as those learnt in their Home Language. They will continue to need many listening and speaking 
opportunities so as to develop their reading and writing skills in Grade 2. 

A wide vocabulary is very important. The ICS modules for Grade 2 provide opportunities for the revision 
of Grade 1 vocabulary and they gradually introduce and consolidate new vocabulary by means of poems, 
rhymes, stories, riddles and jokes and games to play. 

Learners are encouraged to answer questions, and to take part in discussions and conversations on familiar 
topics. 

The attention is drawn to the sounds of letters in the additional language and learners discover that some 
letters sound the same as in their home language whereas others differ. 

Although the educator will attend to correct pronunciation at this stage, learners should always be 
encouraged to speak the additional language without feeling incompetent and self-conscious. 

By keeping the dictionary pages at the end of each module in a file, learners can revise the vocabulary 
and use these lists as a personal dictionary to which they can refer when completing or writing sentences 
and stories. 

2.2.4.1 Time scheduled for the modules 1 to 8 

It is suggested that the average learners complete all eight modules during the year, completing ± two 
modules per term. 

The slower learners will proceed at their own pace while the quick learners can be given more tasks if 
necessary. 

All learners in Grade 2 should be exposed to all the listening, speaking and reading activities in these 
eight modules to ensure that progression occurs throughout. 

Bobtail I tells the story of the rabbit family living on Farmer Brown's farm. Naughty, disobedient Bobtail 
goes off on an adventure but escapes just in time. 

The stories provide enough repetitive dialogue which learners will find easy to read and to dramatise. 
Large pictures will encourage discussion. Phonics activities make learners aware of similar beginning sounds 
in the additional language. 

Counting activities and names of the days of the week lend themselves to the integration of Literacy and 
Mathematics. 

Learner's transcribe sentences in the additional language. 

Integration of themes 

• Human Rights 

It is the farmer's right to protect his crops. 

• Social Justice

2.6.1 ENGLISH FIRST ADDITIONAL LANGUAGE 

2.6.2 Bobtail Part 2 

2.6.3 EDUCATOR SECTION 

2.6.4 Memorandum 

In Grade 2 the learners will build new experiences in the additional language on those learnt in Grade 1 
as well as those learnt in their Home Language. They will continue to need many listening and speaking 
opportunities so as to develop their reading and writing skills in Grade 2. 

A wide vocabulary is very important. The ICS modules for Grade 2 provide opportunities for the revision 
of Grade 1 vocabulary and they gradually introduce and consolidate new vocabulary by means of poems, 
rhymes, stories, riddles and jokes and games to play. 

Learners are encouraged to answer questions, and to take part in discussions and conversations on familiar 
topics. 

The attention is drawn to the sounds of letters in the additional language and learners discover that some 
letters sound the same as in their home language whereas others differ. 

Although the educator will attend to correct pronunciation at this stage, learners should always be 
encouraged to speak the additional language without feeling incompetent and self-conscious. 

By keeping the dictionary pages at the end of each module in a file, learners can revise the vocabulary 
and use these lists as a personal dictionary to which they can refer when completing or writing sentences 
and stories. 

Time scheduled for the modules 1 to 8 

It is suggested that the average learners complete all eight modules during the year, completing db two 
modules per term. 

The slower learners will proceed at their own pace while the quick learners can be given more tasks if 
necessary. 

All learners in Grade 2 should be exposed to all the listening, speaking and reading activities in these 
eight modules to ensure that progression occurs throughout. 

The escapades of Bobtail are continued in familiar surroundings for learners, namely, in school. New 
verbs are introduced naturally and learners illustrate the parts of the story. 

Jumbled sentences are transcribed correctly and read back to the educator. 

All the rhymes, poems, stories and activities use high frequency words for learners to recognise. 

Integration of themes 

• Social Justice 

Schools have rules and learners should obey these. Learners who disobey the rules must know they will be 
punished. 

• A healthy environment 

Learners discuss how they can keep their environment at school healthy.

2.10.4 Memorandum 

In Grade 2 the learners will build new experiences in the additional language on those learnt in Grade 1 
as well as those learnt in their Home Language. They will continue to need many listening and speaking 
opportunities so as to develop their reading and writing skills in Grade 2. 

A wide vocabulary is very important. The ICS modules for Grade 2 provide opportunities for the revision 
of Grade 1 vocabulary and they gradually introduce and consolidate new vocabulary by means of poems, 
rhymes, stories, riddles and jokes and games to play. 

Learners are encouraged to answer questions, and to take part in discussions and conversations on familiar 
topics. 

The attention is drawn to the sounds of letters in the additional language and learners discover that some 
letters sound the same as in their home language whereas others differ. 

Although the educator will attend to correct pronunciation at this stage, learners should always be 
encouraged to speak the additional language without feeling incompetent and self-conscious. 

By keeping the dictionary pages at the end of each module in a file, learners can revise the vocabulary 
and use these lists as a personal dictionary to which they can refer when completing or writing sentences 
and stories. 

2.10.4.1 Time scheduled for the modules 1 to 8 

It is suggested that the average learners complete all eight modules during the year, completing ± two 
modules per term. 

The slower learners will proceed at their own pace while the quick learners can be given more tasks if 
necessary. 

All learners in Grade 2 should be exposed to all the listening, speaking and reading activities in these 
eight modules to ensure that progression occurs throughout. 

The escapades of Bobtail are continued in familiar surroundings for learners, namely, in school. New 
verbs are introduced naturally and learners illustrate the parts of the story. 

Jumbled sentences are transcribed correctly and read back to the educator. 

All the rhymes, poems, stories and activities use high frequency words for learners to recognise. 

Integration of themes 

• Social Justice 

Schools have rules and learners should obey these. Learners who disobey the rules must know they will be 
punished. 

• A healthy environment 

Learners discuss how they can keep their environment at school healthy.

3.8.3 EDUCATOR SECTION 

3.8.4 Memorandum 

In Grade 2 the learners will build new experiences in the additional language on those learnt in Grade 1 
as well as those learnt in their Home Language. They will continue to need many listening and speaking 
opportunities so as to develop their reading and writing skills in Grade 2. 

A wide vocabulary is very important. The ICS modules for Grade 2 provide opportunities for the revision 
of Grade 1 vocabulary and they gradually introduce and consolidate new vocabulary by means of poems, 
rhymes, stories, riddles and jokes and games to play. 

Learners are encouraged to answer questions, and to take part in discussions and conversations on familiar 
topics. 

The attention is drawn to the sounds of letters in the additional language and learners discover that some 
letters sound the same as in their home language whereas others differ. 

Although the educator will attend to correct pronunciation at this stage, learners should always be 
encouraged to speak the additional language without feeling incompetent and self-conscious. 

By keeping the dictionary pages at the end of each module in a file, learners can revise the vocabulary 
and use these lists as a personal dictionary to which they can refer when completing or writing sentences 
and stories.

160 CHAPTER 3. TERM 3 

It is suggested that the average learners complete all eight modules during the year, completing ± two 
modules per term. 

The slower learners will proceed at their own pace while the quick learners can be given more tasks if 
necessary. 

All learners in Grade 2 should be exposed to all the listening, speaking and reading activities in these 
eight modules to ensure that progression occurs throughout. 

Cas is one of many creatures living in the hedge around Farmer Brown's farm. The characteristics of 
chameleons and the dangers which they must confront are described in the stories and poem to be listened 
to and read. 

More nursery rhymes, riddles and phonic exercises are included. 

Integration of themes 

• A healthy environment 

Cas's environment also needs to be a safe one in order to survive. Discuss the dangers that the chameleon has 
to face and compare these to the dangers the learners have to be aware of in their immediate environment. 
Discuss "the survival of the fittest".

A wide vocabulary is very important. The ICS modules for Grade 2 provide opportunities for the revision 
of Grade 1 vocabulary and they gradually introduce and consolidate new vocabulary by means of poems, 
rhymes, stories, riddles and jokes and games to play. 

Learners are encouraged to answer questions, and to take part in discussions and conversations on familiar 
topics. 

The attention is drawn to the sounds of letters in the additional language and learners discover that some 
letters sound the same as in their home language whereas others differ. 

Although the educator will attend to correct pronunciation at this stage, learners should always be 
encouraged to speak the additional language without feeling incompetent and self-conscious. 

By keeping the dictionary pages at the end of each module in a file, learners can revise the vocabulary 
and use these lists as a personal dictionary to which they can refer when completing or writing sentences 
and stories. 

Time scheduled for the modules 1 to 8 

It is suggested that the average learners complete all eight modules during the year, completing ± two 
modules per term. 

The slower learners will proceed at their own pace while the quick learners can be given more tasks if 
necessary. 

All learners in Grade 2 should be exposed to all the listening, speaking and reading activities in these 
eight modules to ensure that progression occurs throughout. 

Cas is one of many creatures living in the hedge around Farmer Brown's farm. The characteristics of 
chameleons and the dangers which they must confront are described in the stories and poem to be listened 
to and read. 

More nursery rhymes, riddles and phonic exercises are included.

A hungry, lonely caterpillar 
crawled up the juicy stalk. 
He ate and ate the leaves away 
through the night and through the day 
He grew so fat he burst his skin 
and lay him down to rest - 
in a bed of silk, just like a king 
he stayed till early Spring.

4.5.3 EDUCATOR SECTION 

4.5.4 Memorandum 

In Grade 2 the learners will build new experiences in the additional language on those learnt in Grade 1 
as well as those learnt in their Home Language. They will continue to need many listening and speaking 
opportunities so as to develop their reading and writing skills in Grade 2. 

A wide vocabulary is very important. The ICS modules for Grade 2 provide opportunities for the revision 
of Grade 1 vocabulary and they gradually introduce and consolidate new vocabulary by means of poems, 
rhymes, stories, riddles and jokes and games to play. 

Learners are encouraged to answer questions, and to take part in discussions and conversations on familiar 
topics. 

The attention is drawn to the sounds of letters in the additional language and learners discover that some 
letters sound the same as in their home language whereas others differ. 

Although the educator will attend to correct pronunciation at this stage, learners should always be 
encouraged to speak the additional language without feeling incompetent and self-conscious. 

By keeping the dictionary pages at the end of each module in a file, learners can revise the vocabulary 
and use these lists as a personal dictionary to which they can refer when completing or writing sentences 
and stories. 

Time scheduled for the modules 1 to 8 

It is suggested that the average learners complete all eight modules during the year, completing ± two 
modules per term.

The slower learners will proceed at their own pace while the quick learners can be given more tasks if 
necessary. 

All learners in Grade 2 should be exposed to all the listening, speaking and reading activities in these 
eight modules to ensure that progression occurs throughout. 

Cas is one of many creatures living in the hedge around Farmer Brown's farm. The characteristics of 
chameleons and the dangers which they must confront are described in the stories and poem to be listened 
to and read. 

More nursery rhymes, riddles and phonic exercises are included. 

This module reflects on a variety of creatures living in the hedge around Farmer Brown's farm. 

It's breakfast time on the farm, the farm animals are waiting for their food and the hedge becomes alive 
with creepy crawlies looking for something to eat. Survival is of all importance as predators look for an easy 
prey. 

Learners complete a graph on what their favourite breakfast food consists of.

4.8.2 Homes in the hedge 

4.8.3 EDUCATOR SECTION 

4.8.4 Memorandum 

In Grade 2 the learners will build new experiences in the additional language on those learnt in Grade 1 
as well as those learnt in their Home Language. They will continue to need many listening and speaking 
opportunities so as to develop their reading and writing skills in Grade 2. 

A wide vocabulary is very important. The ICS modules for Grade 2 provide opportunities for the revision 
of Grade 1 vocabulary and they gradually introduce and consolidate new vocabulary by means of poems, 
rhymes, stories, riddles and jokes and games to play. 

Learners are encouraged to answer questions, and to take part in discussions and conversations on familiar 
topics. 

The attention is drawn to the sounds of letters in the additional language and learners discover that some 
letters sound the same as in their home language whereas others differ. 



8 This content is available online at <http://cnx.org/content/m25391/!. l/>. 



233 

Although the educator will attend to correct pronunciation at this stage, learners should always be 
encouraged to speak the additional language without feeling incompetent and self-conscious. 

By keeping the dictionary pages at the end of each module in a file, learners can revise the vocabulary 
and use these lists as a personal dictionary to which they can refer when completing or writing sentences 
and stories. 

Time scheduled for the modules 1 to 8 

It is suggested that the average learners complete all eight modules during the year, completing ± two 
modules per term. 

The slower learners will proceed at their own pace while the quick learners can be given more tasks if 
necessary. 

All learners in Grade 2 should be exposed to all the listening, speaking and reading activities in these 
eight modules to ensure that progression occurs throughout. 

Cas is one of many creatures living in the hedge around Farmer Brown's farm. The characteristics of 
chameleons and the dangers which they must confront are described in the stories and poem to be listened 
to and read. 

More nursery rhymes, riddles and phonic exercises are included. 

This module reflects on a variety of creatures living in the hedge around Farmer Brown's farm. 

It's breakfast time on the farm, the farm animals are waiting for their food and the hedge becomes alive 
with creepy crawlies looking for something to eat. Survival is of all importance as predators look for an easy 
prey. 

Learners complete a graph on what their favourite breakfast food consists of. 

Integration of themes 

• Inclusively 

Each creature in the hedge has a home as everybody is entitled to a place they can call home. 

• A healthy environment 

Keeping their environment clean and safe.
