Primary 2 -17.6.20

Good morning Everyone!

We hope you are all doing well today.

A little bit of a secret task coming up below so if your Dad happens to be reading this tell him to STOP NOW! Ask someone else to help you read the next part 🙂

Right boys and girls Sunday is Father’s Day so you might want to prepare something special for your Dad or maybe you could choose someone else close to you. We have put together a few ideas for you below. If you make something, are you able to keep it a secret and pop it under your bed or in a drawer until Sunday? 😉

-Make a medal, certificate or trophy


-Make a Father’s Day Card – here are some ideas


-Write 5 (or 10 things) you love about your Dad/ someone special. 

-Ask someone to help you plan a special lunch -you could even make a menu and play waiter/waitress by taking his order. Think about setting a table or tray nicely and maybe even playing some relaxing music like a restaurant !

-Plan a games afternoon/evening with all your Dad’s favourite games.

We are sure that life at home can be very busy for many of you just now so here is it a little 5 minute activity to slow everything down – a mindfulness activity from Cosmic Yoga. Boys and Girls you can grab a teddy to do it with but adults we would really recommend trying to take 5 minutes with your children and sit on the floor to also do this with them  – it will benefit everyone!

Have a good day Primary 2. We look forward to hearing from you.

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,
