Primary 2 – 23.4.20

Hello Primary 2,

Another lovely sunny day!  We hope you have been enjoying getting out for some exercise in the sunshine. You will have seen Mrs Ferguson has also posted some activities to help keep you moving! We would love to see some photos if you try any of them. Great to see some of you have been trying out your own obstacle courses!

We are also really pleased that some people have already started exploring our new topic of Hot and Cold Countries. Along with the video and Powerpoint we have posted, you might have books or even globes at home to help locate the Arctic and Antarctic. Have a look at some of the excellent research completed about Arctic animals. Well done!

We are providing lots of activities to keep you busy but remember playing time is still an important part of our day in Primary 2 and will help split up some of the core tasks on your learning grids. Also if you need a break  and would like to relax, Mrs Oliver has a story waiting for you in your Learner’s Journey!

We hope you are continuing to access the Oxford Owl books and would love to hear of any you have really enjoyed! Here is the login and link again:

Primary 2 22.4.20

Good morning everyone,

We hope you are all well today and looking forward to a new day of learning from home. I wonder how many of you are doing Joe Wicks – have you been able to spot the differences or answer the quiz questions he has been asking? If you would like a shorter wake up activity you could maybe try some of these favourites we use in class to get us moving! These are also useful to get you moving in between activities when you get a bit fed up of sitting still!

Today, you can continue choosing a Literacy, Numeracy and Across the Curriculum activity. Here is a a Powerpoint to help you with your research on arctic animals:

If you would like to try out an additional Science and Technology activity, we are sure you will find this video from the Glasgow Science Centre on Monday really interesting. It is all about the European Space Agency’s Rover that is due to be sent to Mars in 2022. Use your new knowledge of what makes a good rover to build your own and send us photo if you can!

​Each week we are going to make a Rights Respecting Schools Article focus for you think about. This week, we would like you to focus on Article 24 -Health Care – ensures that every child has the right to the best possible health. Can you think of 8 important things you need to stay healthy? Maybe you would like to try out one of these activities to explore this article:
-Draw or list people who can help us stay healthy and safe. Explain their job. -Make a list with words or pictures of as many kinds of exercise you can think of.
-Set up an obstacle course and challenge someone in your house to have a go.
-Read Coronavirus: A Book for Children talk about what you are doing as a family to keep healthy during this time.
We are continuing to work towards our Right Respecting Schools Gold Award so if you complete any of these activities please send us photos on your Learning Journal.

We look forward to hearing about your learning and seeing any photos. If you have any questions please just ask on the blog or Learners Journal and we will get back to you quickly.
