Hello everyone,

We hope you all had a lovely weekend.

Like last week,  four activities will be posted on teams each day for you to complete.  Please remember that you do not have to complete these for a certain time,  just when you can.  If you are online can you please comment your child’s name on the teams chat. This allows us to take a register and keep track of who has been online.

This week our new spelling rule is ‘oy’.

Your spelling words this week are:

  • joy, annoy, destroy, loyal

For common words we have picked some th words:

  • there, their, these, those.

Your child’s teacher will post about our weekly Teams chat, scheduled for each Monday afternoon and Friday afternoon.  Please check your child’s team chat to find out their classes time.

As always, if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.

Have a great week!

P2 team.

Bishopton Pedal 2020

Today should have been the start of the Big Pedal walking/cycling/scooting national competition that we all enjoy so much each year.

This year we’re turning it into the Bishopton Pedal.

As part of your daily exercise, we would like you to try to cycle, scoot or walk every day for the next 2 weeks.  Please make sure that bikes and scooters are safe for you to use and that you wear helmets on your bike just as you would if you were at school. If you do not have access to a safe place to cycle, scoot or walk please just carry on with all the other daily fitness ideas provided by your teachers.

Remember all your family are welcome to join in too.

Be safe and have fun.

 

The Use of Microsoft Teams

Hi everyone! Just a quick reminder on how to use teams and what the day will look like:

Every morning your teacher will post a ‘Good Morning’ post. This is essentially a post to register you all, just like we would do in school. Can you please try and reply to this post at some point during the day. If you do not we have to mark you absent.

Can you please make sure you only reply to the posts the teacher makes and do not create your own posts. It clogs up the news feed and important messages get lost. Please do not post gifs in the class teams page. The chill out zone is always available for you to chat with your friends. This will be monitored by teachers.

Each day, you will be set a maths, literacy, health and wellbeing and another task. Sometimes, this will be in the form of an assignment or a post on the class teams page. If this is a post on teams, please submit your work by replying to that post. If you complete work in your notebook, can you please let us know so we can give feedback. You can do this by replying to our good morning post. We love to see your work, but it would help us greatly if you could only post this in 1 place – either news feed (if you are replying to a post), in notebook or in the assignment itself.

Remember to do what you can, the assignments are set for the week so don’t worry about completing them all in the one day. Also, learning can take place in lots of different ways such as through play, games with family, outdoor learning, household chores etc.

As always, we are available throughout the day should you need help with anything. Please do not hesitate to ask. Please do not worry about any technical issues, we are in this together!

Thank you.

The Primary 2 teachers

Hello everyone,

I hope you all had a lovely, restful Easter break and were able to enjoy some of the sunshine.

Continuing on from before the break,  four activities will be posted on Teams each day for you to complete.  Please remember that you do not have to complete these for a certain time,  just when you can.  If you are online can you please comment your child’s name or a ‘hello’ on the morning ‘check-in’ post in your child’s class on Teams. This allows us to take a register and keep track of who has been online.

This week our new spelling rule is ‘oi’

Your spelling words this week are:  boil, join, point, spoil

For common words we have picked: the, they, them, then (as revision)

Your child’s class teacher will make a post about using Teams to host a video call for the class. This allows your child to speak to their teacher and classmates. Each class has a scheduled time for their Teams meeting, this will usually take place in the form of a ‘check-in’ on the Monday and ‘check-out’ on the Friday. Please check your child’s team chat to find out their classes time.

As always, if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.

Have a great week!

Microsoft Teams

Dear Primary 2,

 

Well done for a fantastic first day of home learning. We are all extremely proud of how well you have all been coping with this new change. Teams is a fantastic resource, however, because it is so good, most schools in Scotland are using it. When there is a high volume of people working on Teams it can slow the system down. Documents might not load properly, worksheets or powerpoints. It may even be difficult for you to upload your work for your teachers to see. When this happens, please do not worry. Just take a wee break and come back to it. Or start a new task.

A few wee helpful tips and reminders to make this process easier

  • You can click onto your notebook for each area (Literacy, Numeracy and Maths, IDL, Homework, Health and Well-being) and carry out work there, rather than trying to upload your work.
  • When you have completed work, could you please post on your class’ teams page to let your teacher know where to find your work to mark.
  • On the assignment page you can also click that you have seen the task or completed it. This is another way to notify teachers, once again though, please let us know where you have either uploaded your work or completed your work.
  • We have made the deadlines for each task for the Friday of the same week. This was just to ease the pressure from trying to complete all the tasks and upload them all in the one day. When you complete a task, and if you can upload evidence of work, please do. You do not need to wait until Friday.

A little extra note, there is a maths grid which has been uploaded to our teams’ page. This is your maths homework. You only need to complete one of these throughout the week. There will be numeracy and maths tasks/assignments posted every day. These should be completed every day. Literacy homework will be put into Monday’s literacy task.

As always we appreciate your cooperation,

Primary Two Teaching Team.

P2 Homework w.b. 23/03/20

Hello everyone,

We hope you had a lovely weekend.

We know that as we move into the next couple of weeks and the new term, that things will be slightly different. However P2 teachers will endeavour to keep things as normal and consistent for the children as possible.

Glow teams reminders:

  • Please check daily for your child’s work under the ‘assignments’ tab. Not all assignments will require you to post something, but we would love some photographs or examples of work if possible.
  • You child has access to their very own ‘Class notebook’ on glow teams, which is essentially like their very own little jotter. They have been split into different subject areas (literacy, numeracy, health & wellbeing, IDL and homework)  to help them to organise their work. This is available for children to evidence what they have been doing, making etc
  • As much as we can no longer provide your child with a physical reading book at the moment, we do please ask that we continue to read with your child each day.

P2 – Learning from home

Hi everyone,

We hope you’re having a lovely weekend. As we spoke about last week, learning will be a little different. Learning will take place on Microsoft Teams (your child has a username and password for this) and has had practise logging in in class. Everyday, we will post tasks to be completed. These may be in the form of assignments that will be posted on Microsoft Teams, or a message on our class teams page. To complete tasks, you can take a picture of work you have completed on paper and upload it, use the class notebooks function, or upload on assignments directly. Remember you can upload photos of you playing outside too. Don’t worry too much about hand in dates, just do your best to complete what you can. Remember, learning can take place in the form of helping around the house, cooking and baking and going outside in the garden too. Don’t worry if we have a few teething problems with the technology, just carry on doing what you can.

Each day, we will log on from 9am and would ask that you check in with us at some point throughout the day. We will be available to chat if you need anything at all. You can contact us through teams on the chat function, on the teams class page or through email.

Take care, we’re in this together. Don’t forget to play and have fun!

Miss Grant, Miss Finnigan, Mrs Kane, Miss Gilbert, Miss Frew and Mrs Simpson

PE Kits ⛹️‍♀️

I hope you have been enjoying playing outside in your gardens, in this lovely Spring sunshine ☀

For those of you who were off school last week, I have your PE kits safely stored in my house. They have had a hot wash and a nice time blowing in the breeze on my washing line, before being packed away into our blue kit box for safe keeping.
