Good morning Primary 1s!

How are you today? We hope you have managed to do some learning, playing and relaxing this week. We have loved looking at your pictures from your sports days. Well done to you all! Your house teams will be so proud.

Since we have been finding lots of fun things to do at home over the past few months we thought it would be nice to read ‘Winnie and Wilbur Stay at Home’ on the Oxford Owl website. You can read this book with an adult and try to read the words that you can on your own. Once you have read the book you can have a discussion about it with an adult. You can think about all the fun things that you have decided to do at home and see if they are the same as Winnie and Wilbur. I really enjoyed reading this book and I hope you do too.

If you want to do this extra activity you can also let us know what you think of the book by commenting on this blog. We love hearing from you!

Just a quick reminder on how to get access to the book, go to Then click on ‘My class login’ at the top of the page and enter your teacher’s name and the password: Carmondean1

We hope you all have a fantastic Thursday.

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.


Oxford Owl

Please continue to practise your reading skills with books you have in the house or the ones online. Choose a book appropriate to your age and stage. You might want to follow up your reading with a book review, quiz, prediction or writing a new ending for the story.


Travel Tokoyo

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!

Article 15- Freedom of Association

Every child has the right to meet with other children and to join groups and organisations, as long as this does not stop other people from enjoying their rights.

Here are some activities for you to try:

  • Working with somebody at home, or by yourself, see if you can come up with a catchy phrase to remind people that all children have this particular right. Pass on your phrase to at least 5 people you know.
  • Make a list of all of the organisations and groups that you belong to. Can you group them in different ways? Are they school groups? Clubs? Religious groups? Sport or special interest groups?
  • Think of the story ‘Cinderella’ How was her right to associate with others restricted? How would this have made her feel? Can you think of any other characters from books or stories that could not easily enjoy Article 15?
  • Watch this short video. What can you learn from this? How does it link to Article 15?

Remember to post pictures on the Learning Journals which we can use as evidence for our award.

Oxford Owl- remember to keep accessing online books through Oxford owl. Choose a book appropriate to your age and stage. You could use one of them to complete your book review from your learning grid. If you need help at choosing a level please ask your teacher.

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:
