Week Beginning 22/06/20

Hello, Primary 2,

Welcome back after the weekend. We hope you have had a lovely break. This is our final week of Primary 2 and the school year 2019/2020. 😊 We would like to take this opportunity to say we are so proud of all of you. This year has turned out to be different from what we all expected but you have all coped so well. You have worked hard and showed great determination to continue with your learning.

As it is the last week in school we want it to be as fun and as stress-free as possible. We have organised a week full of activities leading up to a Teddy Bears’ picnic party on Friday. Each day there will be a new task relating to our picnic. Below is a timetable of the different activities.

We hope you enjoy this week. 😊

The final week of Primary 2! 😊
Preparing for a Teddy Bears’ Picnic
Each day the teachers will post exemplars to give you inspiration.
We would love it if you could attach photos each day of the different tasks. Please do not worry if you are unable to manage this. 😉

Week Beginning 15/06/20

Hi P2,

We hope you have had a lovely weekend. Last week the teachers were given the happy news that the school would be open to them. This week some of the Primary 2 teachers will be in school sorting out the classrooms and getting them ready for next year. This does mean at some points during the week your teacher may not be on your teams page. However, there will always be a teacher available to you. A teacher within the school will cover the teams page. You will not be left on your own.  😊

This week our spelling rule is “aw” and your spelling rule words are

  • claw
  • paw
  • draw
  • yawn

As we have completed the common words for Primary 2 there will be none in your spelling. However, if you would like to refresh your memory here are the common words below
INSTRUCTION: Fry's First 100 Words (With images) | Preschool sight ...

We would also like to take the opportunity to say how proud we are of all of the children. You have continually impressed us by engaging with your online learning and unfaltering motivation. Please remember,

  • Just do whatever you can. We have set some of the work we would usually be doing on those days in school but please don’t feel you need to do it all. We understand that everyone has different circumstances and daily routines. We would be happy if you checked-in with us every day.
  • We sometimes set different levels of tasks .e.g. mild, warm and hot. We always say to complete one of these, however, if you want to keep yourself busy feel free to do more than one.
  • We will continue to have Team Meetings throughout the week.  If you can join us, that would be great. These meetings give everyone a short time to share their news/feelings and hear each other’s voices. I know we really enjoy them and hope you do too.
  • Uploading work: If you are having any problems uploading any work, remember you can always email them to us. Or just let us know on Teams that you have completed the work and we trust that you have!
  • Feedback for your work: We look at your work once it has been submitted/uploaded and give you feedback. Please read the feedback to check for your strengths and next steps.
  • Technical Difficulties: Sometimes documents, powerpoints and weblinks do not work when you try them on your device. Please let us know and we will try to advise you. The sound on some links doesn’t seem to work when it opens in Internet Explorer so another web browser (Chrome) would be better.
  • Chill-Out Zone: Please remember to chat with your friends here. We are loving all of the creative and funny things you are doing in this zone. Please remember not to post personal photos or videos in this area. GIFs and emojis only.

Finally, keep trying your best and we will continue to be happy teachers.

Home Learning W.B 8/6/20

Good morning everyone,

We hope that you had a lovely weekend.

This week our spelling sound is ‘au’ and our words are:

  • fault
  • haunt
  • launch
  • sauce

Next week as part of our Lighthouse Keepers Lunch topic, there will be an activity to make a pully like the one Mr and Mrs Grinling use in the story.  For this activity you will need a string and something to attach to it. The string could be wool, lace, ribbon and the attachment could be a cup, basket or anything of the sort.  We wanted to give you some notice for this to source materials.

Below are some reminders for home learning:

  • Just do whatever you can. We have set some of the work we would usually be doing on those days in school but please don’t feel you need to do it all. We understand that everyone has different circumstances and daily routines. We would be happy if you checked-in with us every day.

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
