Good morning Primary 2!

Happy Wednesday! We hope you have managed to enjoy the good weather as much as you can. We think it’ll be a wet couple of days ahead. How are you all getting on with the new learning grids? We have had some super posts recently in Learning Journals- keep them coming! Also we hope that you are enjoying the stories that are being posted in Learning Journals and the voice over powerpoints.


Article 19-Protection from Violence, Abuse and Neglect  

Yesterday we posted about our Article of the week, along with some activities to help you explore and understand what it means for you as a child. If you do any of the activities please remember to post pictures of these in Learning Journals so we can continue to collect evidence about how we have explored each article

Phase 1- Visiting friends and family

The lockdown in Scotland changed a little on Friday 29th May. We were allowed to go and visit family and friends in a local park or private garden as long as we kept our two meters distance. Have you had any visitors recently or been to visit a friend or family member? Why don’t you share that experience with us by writing a short story about what you did and how it made you feel seeing people again that you might not have seen for many weeks. You could even draw us a picture! We look forward to hearing all about it.


If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch. We hope you all have a wonderful day!

Good morning Primary 2!

Happy Tuesday! We hope you all managed to access the new Learning Grids which are for the next two weeks. Remember just do what you can and if you need extra activities we post some on the blog or you can access lessons on BBC Bitesize.

Tuesday would be a day where we would do some exercise. You can of course do Joe Wick Live at 9am or Mrs Ferguson our PE teacher has put this activity together for you to try.

Article 19- Protection from violence, abuse and neglect

Governments must do all they can to ensure that children are protected from all forms of violence, abuse, neglect and bad treatment by their parents or anyone else who looks after them. Here are some activities you could do to explore this week’s Article:

  • Draw or list some of the people whose job it is to help you stay safe and protected.
  • Can you think of places or situations that have special rules about safety, such as a swimming pool or train station. Choose one and design a safety poster.
  • Article 19 means that no child should be hurt, hit or treated badly. Find out about the punishments for children in schools in Victorian times. Imagine you lived then and wanted to end physical punishment in school. Write a letter to Queen Victoria explaining why you think things should change.
  • Think about the feelings we have when we know we are  safe and cared for. Write a poem or song to describe how this feels. Use good metaphors and similes to describe the emotions.

Art- Ms Fox

Over the past couple of blogs we have shared an art video that Ms Fox made to help you draw Mount Everest. Click on part 3 to find out what to do next.

Keep up the good work, you are all doing so well! Any questions, please feel free to get in touch.

Stay safe,

Miss Rafferty and Miss Pringle
