P2 w/b 14th June

Good Morning

I hope you all had a lovely weekend in the sun!

The children have been sent home with a letter regarding a virtual open afternoon. These will take place on the last week of school. This will be accessed through google meet and the link, date and time and access code is on the letter.  Please do not share this link with other classes as it is only for our class.  You can of course share with another parent/guardian within your own family.

They have also been sent home with a letter regarding lunches on the last day of school.

The children will be delighted to know that there is no homework this week. If there are any school reading books in your house, please could these be returned by Friday?  Could children also bring a spare bag to take home any of their work/belongings?

Thank you for all of your support this year. As always, any questions, please get in touch.

Big Pedal 2021

Sustrans Big Pedal - Sustrans.org.ukThis year, as always, the school will be taking part in the Big Pedal, the Sustrans national competition to get everyone moving – cycling, scooting and walking.

Below you will find a video and information sheet.

This year will be a little bit different as we are asking children to bring their bike or scooter on alternate days.  Please see the timetable below for your child’s days.

There are only a few simple rules –

all children must wear a helmet on a bike

bikes and scooters should be wheeled through the playground on the way in and out of school and on the ashy path.

Parents and younger siblings are welcome to join in the challenge.

Each class will get the chance to cycle and scoot with their friends in the playground during the day.

We would ask that you check over bikes and scooters to make sure they are safe to use, especially if they haven’t been used for a while.

Please don’t worry if your child is unable to bring their bike or scooter on any of their days.  Walking counts too!

We are all looking forward to the Big Pedal.  It should be lots of fun.

Outdoor Learning Challenge

Welcome back!

With everything being a little different we thought it might be good to give you a reason to take a break. It helps you now and again to step away from the screen and to get out and about in your local area. With this in mind we have set up 16 cards across Bishopton and Dargavel for you to spot when you are out playing or going for a walk. If you find one don’t keep it to yourself; make sure and share where it is with everyone else. There are challenges/ stories/ poems and facts on them.

This is an optional activity and if you don’t want to do any of the suggestions on the card then that is ok. They are simply an excuse to get you out exploring everything our beautiful village has to offer. You may even learn a little Scots along the way.

Happy hunting!

P2 Home Learning Plan

Primary 2 Timetable for Remote Learning January 2021

Happy New Year everyone.

We hope you had a wonderful holiday and enjoyed time with your loved ones over the festive period. We are so sorry that we won’t be seeing your smiling faces as soon as we thought but we will be getting right back into the P2 learning programme on Monday.

Here is a little rundown of how we would like our home learning to go:

  • There will be two main posts every day:
    • Every day you should say ‘hello/good morning’ in the Check-in post before starting any work. This will let us keep a register. We will also have Daily Tasks in this post which will explain the tasks for that day.
    • We will have a Pupil of the Day post where you can leave a compliment for your friend.
  • We will have a Team meeting for each individual class every Monday and Friday at 2.30pm. If you can please join the meeting to say hello and give us your news. It will be so nice to hear everyone’s voices and hear what you have been up to. If you can’t join us, not to worry.
  • Direct Teaching Opportunities – There will be opportunities throughout the week to access direct teaching from your child’s teacher. This will take the form of a recorded voiceover, video or narrated PowerPoint. These will be available to access at any time within the assignments or Teams posts and will help to provide an explanation to your child of what they are learning. The live check-in sessions can be used for news but also for any questions or follow-ups to the direct teaching inputs.
  • Assignments – Please upload your work to the assignments so we can give you feedback directly. If you have any corrections or you would like to make improvements to your work, you can always make changes then upload again. We will set the closing date for assignments for one month and you can still hand them in after this date.
  • Non-assignment work– Some tasks will not need to be uploaded as an assignment. You can just add to them by replying with a comment to the Daily Task post or uploading a photo using the paperclip icon when you reply to the post.
  • Please keep the General Channel tidy and only reply to the posts. Please only chat with your friends and use emojis and GIFs in the Chill-Out Zone.
  • We know that every home has different arrangements about when and how you do work, so please do not worry if you can’t get everything or anything done. You can only do what you can and please email us if you have any questions or worries.
  • Technical Issues– Sometimes word documents, PowerPoints or other applications do not open on your device which is why we will upload them as two different versions. The Powerpoints might have voice recordings on them so make sure you go to ‘Slideshow’ at the top, then click on ‘From beginning’ to play the PowerPoint properly. You can get the computer to read PDFs to you. When you have opened the PDF, go to ‘View’ at the top then select ‘Read Out Loud’. Now select ‘Activate Read Out Loud’ and then either select ‘Read this page only’ or ‘Read to the end of the document’.

We are looking forward to working with you all on Teams and know you will all try your best which is all we are hoping for.

Kind regards,

P2 Class Teachers

For your spelling homework, we would like you to write the spelling rule and common words out three times. We would also like you to create a sentence of your own. Your sentence should include at least one or more of the spelling rule words. This should be returned by Friday for your teacher to mark.

Here is a little video to help remind you of the spelling rule this week.

Please copy the words below three times.

1. nose
2. bone
3. code
4. home
5. people
6. did
7. not
8. can


Can you try to create a sentence which should include at least one spelling rule word. Here is an example.

“The bone did not go home”.

We love seeing your work, therefore, we encourage you to take a picture and add it to the assignment. You can also add photos to your class notebook or use it to type up your homework.
