Good morning Primary 2! Hope you are all well and have been enjoying the sunshine. This week is a short week as we are only at school on Monday and Tuesday. I am going to post some activities you might like to do throughout the week. I have also left the movie night challenge on for anybody that might want to try it this week. Remember if you have any photographs Mr Martindale and I would love to see them!
On Friday this week it is the 75th anniversary of VE day. This marks the day towards the end of World War Two (WW2) Victory in Europe Day.
Some other VE Day activities for you to try this week…
You could maybe call, FaceTime or write to your Grandparents, Great- Grandparents or elderly neighbours and ask them what it was like to be young during the 1940s. Think of questions you would like to ask them.
Create a poppy
A poppy is something we wear to remember the people whose lives are affected by wars.
Can you try to make your own poppy? You can be as creative as you want. This could be by drawing around your hands or even by paint.
Games from the 1940s
Maybe you could try playing some of the games that were popular during the 1940’s.
Jacks, hopscotch, marbles, skipping
Two balls up the wall – Start slowly, hold two balls and throw them up against the wall one by one and catch them. When confident add more balls or allow a bounce before catching.
Foursquare or Boxball – The only things you need to get started in a game of Four Squares are some chalk, a patch of concrete somewhere, a bouncy ball like a football and four people. Draw a large square and divide this big square into four equally sized small squares, numbered 1-4. Each player stands in one of the four squares. To start the game, the player in square four serves the ball by bouncing it in their square once and then hitting it towards one of the other squares. The receiving player then hits the ball to any other player in one of the other squares. The ball must bounce in another player’s square, and they must hit it to another player before it bounces a second time. A player may hit the ball before it bounces, if they choose to do so. If a player hits the ball so that it misses another player’s square, or fails to hit the ball before the second bounce after it has landed in their square, they are “out”. When a player is out, the other players move up to take their place, and that player moves to the last square, or to the end of the line, if there are more than four players. The object of the game is to move up to and hold the server’s position.
Cats cradle—In cat’s cradle, two people make shapes with string and pass them back and forth. To play cat’s cradle, you need: two people and a piece of string tied at the ends to make a circle—

75 seconds— How many can you do? star jumps? Claps? Hula hoops? catch a ball? Create your own?
Singing and dancing to some 1940s songs
The Andrews Sisters – Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mm1wuKvrxAw
Run, Rabbit, Run sung by Flanagan and Allen https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LoLchtG8vTk

Good morning Primary 2, we hope you are all well and are keeping safe. This week I have been enjoying the sunshine and looking after all the new little lambs that are being born daily. It has been a busy week at the farm! I hope you all had a lovely time last week too and if any of you have any photographs we would love to see them.
Have you started to spot the signs of Spring yet? Maybe you could try looking out of the window, go into the garden or if you go a on a walk you could try to see how many of the things from below that you can see, hear or smell. You might be able to find others too and I would love to hear about them.
You could also try and write a poem/ story/ make a little book all about Spring. you could write and draw pictures in it.
Each day this week, we are going to post a daily challenge for you to complete then by Friday evening you will be ready to have a movie night with your family. All arranged by you!
Before we finished up in school we learnt how to take a survey and how to record our results using tally marks. Remember 1,2,3,4 and 5 goes across. Give this a go when creating your movie night survey! As a follow on activity you could create a bar graph of their results.

Hello Everyone! Today is Earth day!
What is Earth Day?
Earth Day is a celebration of the planet we live on as well as an opportunity to talk about climate change action.
All around the world people take part in events to promote climate action and encourage others to protect the planet.
Here are some websites which you might want to look at:
Maybe you could design a poster about our Earth and how we can protect it. Go outside and make something using the natural resources you find. Think about Reduce, Reuse and Recycle and use some junk to make a model.
On your daily walk or in your garden collect some natural materials such as leaves, stones,twigs and petals and use them to make a collage picture. Then take a photo of it. You could also use them to write your name, form letters and numbers.
