Primary 2 – Home Learning 7.5.20

Hello Everyone!

What another beautiful day it is going to be! We hope you enjoy getting out to do some exercise and if possible do some of your learning outside! Check your learning grids to see if there is an activity for Numeracy, Literacy or Learning Across the Curriculum that may be well suited to being completed outside in the garden or when you are out getting some exercise.

A Special Day

Major street party in Exeter to mark 75th anniversary of VE Day ...

Primary 2, you may have heard adults talking about celebrating VE Day tomorrow (Friday 8 May) or maybe you are even doing something to mark ‘Victory in Europe’ Day with your family. People around the country are remembering the celebrations which happened 75 years ago on this day when the Second World War ended. Newsround has some more information

This online lesson from Poppy Scotland is about child evacuees from the Second World War and discovering what is inside Paddington’s suitcase!

Maybe you could make and decorate some bunting using triangles of paper and stringing them together to hang in your window.

Here is a template if you would prefer:

RRS Weekly Focus – Article 7

This week’s RRS Article is Article 7 – Every child has the right to be registered at birth, to have a name and nationality, and, as far as possible, to know and be cared for by their parents.

How can your name & nationality be respected?

  • By being called your preferred name
  • Your name being pronounced properly and spelt correctly
  • A birth certificate
  • A passport (if you need to travel out of the UK)
  • You are encouraged to be proud of your name and nationality.
  • You get a chance to celebrate your national identity perhaps with a special day, food or music.
  • To know and be cared for by your parents – it might be two parents, or it might be one parent, or someone else in your family, like a grandparent or an aunt or uncle or maybe a carer, an adult who children live with, and are looked after by

Maybe you could try one of these activities to help further your understanding of this Article:

-Watch the story – The Name Jar

-Have you ever been to a naming and welcoming ceremony, like a christening or aqiqa? Write a short description of what happened or share what you remember by telling someone about it.  Find out about naming ceremonies from other faiths or cultures.

Draw an identity hand! Draw around one of your hands, write your full name in the thumb area, in the next finger, write your date of your birth, put the country you call home in the next finger. Then in the last two fingers, write the names of two adults who are important for you, like you parents, carers or grandparents. Draw the flag of your nationality on the palm. Finish your picture with your favourite colours or designs. We would love to see any of your hands on your Learning Journal!

We are sure that there will be times every day when children and adults would benefit from relaxation and down time – even if it is only for short time! There is some good advice and relaxation activities for children (and adults) here:

Thank you for your continuing support,

Mrs Oliver and Miss Rafferty

  1. Hello Harris,
    Yes it sounds like you have been very busy this morning. Super! I’m glad you managed to do the iceberg experiment. Did you learn anything from doing it?
    Make sure you take a picture of your identity hand so we can use it for evidence for our Rights respecting schools award 🙂
    Enjoy your walk with Mummy and Buster. I will also be clapping at 8pm tonight too!

  2. Hi Miss Rafferty. How are you? I have had a busy morning. I have done some addition of 3 numbers in my books, did my iceberg experiment, watched the name jar, and made my identity hand. I have also started my food diary, and played the sharing game on top marks. I am just going to have my lunch and go for a walk with mummy and Buster. We will go out and clap tonight too. Enjoy the rest of your day. Love Harris x

  3. Hello Lorena! I am very good, thank you, Hope you are well too!
    It is another nice day and it’s also very warm 🙂 How exciting, I’m glad she paid you a little visit! That’s great you are learning about remainders- its just what is left over after everything has been shared out equally.
    I will also be clapping at 8pm tonight for all the people still working hard through this difficult time. Enjoy some more time in the garden while it’s still warm!

  4. Good morning, Miss Rafferty! How are you today? The weather is lovely, one more day to spend in the garden! Tooth Fairy visited me last night for my tooth, I was very happy! I have just some tasks left to do, yesterday mummy helped me to understand the divisions with remainders and I did loads of exercises to make sure I got it right. Tonight we will clap again for NHS and all key workers. Have a lovely day! X
