Happy VE day Primary 2!

We hope you are successfully making your way through the learning grids. Remember just do what you can!

P.E

Have you still been doing P.E with Joe Wicks? He has recently had an operation on his hand so his wife has kindly been stepping in for him. Do you think she makes a good teaching assistant? We think she does, she has been doing so well! Why don’t you try Friday’s workout today………I’m sure it’s fancy dress!

Keep your eyes and ears pealed for other VE Day celebrations over the weekend. I know that in South Queensferry the ships in the River Forth are tooting their horns at 3pm on Friday and shining their lights at 9:30pm #ShineALight

Free Time Friday

Today is Friday after all so make sure you take some time out of your learning to play. You have earned it. Have a super weekend Primary 2 and we look forward to speaking to you all on Monday!

Good morning boys and girls!

We hope you all had a wonderful weekend and managed to enjoy some of the sunshine. Today starts another week of learning at home. You should now refer to your second booklet for one literacy, one numeracy and one across the curriculum activity. Everything you are doing at home should be done in your red jotter. Please keep all extra sheets and take photos of things you have done or made. When we come back to school, we would like to see all your hard work!

Joe Wicks will be continuing his P.E lessons at 9am or if you prefer, you can do one of the Cosmic Kids yoga on YouTube.

You can listen to David Walliams read a story at 11am- you can even sit and listen with a snack! He also has stories pre-recorded if you can’t make 11am.

Remember you can read e-books on Oxford Owl. There are plenty of books to choose from and if you do read one, keep a note of it in your jotter.

We also encourage you to read books that you may already have in the house- practise makes perfect!

Education City is a great way to keep yourself challenged. There will be new homework tasks waiting for you to complete this week. We hope that you can score more than 80%

Easter is just around the corner. How many of you have boiled eggs, decorated them and rolled them down the hill? Do you know what the rolling of the egg symbolises? There are lots of Easter crafts you could do this week with your family: make chocolate Easter nests, Easter cards, an Easter bonnet, or an Easter wreath to hang on your door.

Leave a comment at the bottom of the post to let us know how you are getting on. Remember stay safe and keep washing those hands!

Primary 3 HIIT Session with The Body Coach!

Primary 3 joined hundreds of other schools across the UK, as well as internationally, for a Joe Wicks HIIT workout! It involved working out to different exercises for 30 seconds with a 30 second rest. We were lunging, doing press ups, mountain climbers, squats, high knees and climbing the rope. Our heart rates were up and there was a lot of sweating going on! Check out some of our moves below!
