Good morning Primary 2!

How are you all this morning? We have had great feedback about the voiceover powerpoints and the recorded stories which is good to hear.  You have been great at uploading pictures of your work and activities. It is nice to see how everyone is getting on at home.

 

BBC Bitesize

Remember BBC Bitesize have been posting 3 lessons a day which cover many aspects of the curriculum. Yesterday’s Maths lesson was counting in 5s and Literacy lesson was about how to write questions correctly. Primary 2 have covered both these but it would be fantastic activities for you to complete as some revision.

We know that P2 are so active and we can see that in some of your uploads in Learning Journals. Can you all remember to log your activity under our school? Teachers have also been logging their activities too!

 

Save the Bees!

Why are bees so important to the world?

Bees are vitally important for everyone. Honey bees make honey by mixing nectar with enzymes and by fanning the mixture with their wings to help the water to evaporate. They also make beeswax that we can use in cosmetics, candles and furniture polish. But, overall, they also do so much more…

Bee Spotting

Why not see if you can spot some bees?

What sort of bees can you see?

Mated queen bees are the first to be seen in the spring searching for new colony sites. As spring progresses smaller worker bees take over food collection while the queen lays more and more eggs. You can start seeing bees when the warmer spring weather starts and can usually see bumblebees before honey bees.

 

 

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

Happy Friday Primary 2!

Spelling Test

On a Friday we normally do a little test on the phonics words you have been learning for the week. Why don’t you get an adult or older sibling to test you on your words, can you get full marks? You could also ask them to give you a sentence with some of your spelling words in it to see if you can write the whole sentence down. Let us know how you get on!

On the BBC Bitesize website, there is a super lesson about simple designs. Click on the link below to learn about making simple designs and there are two activities that you can choose from.  If you do complete either of the activities, remember to take pictures and post them on the Learning Journals.
