Primary 2 16.6.20

Good morning Primary 2!

How are you all this morning? Are you enjoying the new Learning Grids? Remember choose two activities to complete daily. Keep all your work together to make it into a mini project.

Have you started the Sports Day activities? Do what you can to earn house points for your house- you could do one activity a day to spread out your activities. Take photos and put them up onto Learning Journals.

 

Article 3- Non Discrimination

The Convention applies to every child without discrimination, whatever their ethnicity, gender, religion, language, abilities or any other status, whatever they think or say, whatever their family background. Here are some activities you can do to explore this article:

  • Imagine that you are treated differently and not allowed to go to school, have friends and play because of the colour of your hair. … How would this feel? What would you say and do? Discuss this with the grown ups at home.
  • Being happy and proud about who we are as people is important. Have you read ‘The Flamingo Who Didn’t Want To Be Pink’? Watch the story made by children at William Tyndale School. Try to get all your family and friends to tell you the best things they like about being themselves and the best things about you.
  • Think of somewhere that you know well. It might be a library, a park or a swimming pool. Does it welcome everyone? Can all children take part there equally? Talk to your friends or family about what could make this place better for everyone.

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.

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!

We hope you are successfully making your way through the learning grids. Remember just do what you can! We hope the weather will improve and get warmer over the weekend which means you can get outside for your exercise and walks with your family. Did any of your pictures make the gallery on the blog yesterday?

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!

Design and Technology

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.

Primary 2 – Home Learning 14.5.20

Good morning everyone!

We hope you are having a good week so far.

Today would normally be PE day with Mrs Ferguson and she has suggested the following activity for some active fun! If you are able to have a go-let us know how you get on 😊

Sock ladder Jumping

Remember the ‘Travel to Tokyo’ activity mentioned on Monday’s blog. All you have to do is log any activity you and your family do.  Every little counts and remember there are prizes!

Today is also normally writing day in school. If you are planning to complete your writing today – maybe you could play some relaxing music whilst you do it. We sometimes find that in class it relaxes and focuses us.

We have loved looking at some of your activities on Learner’s Journals and here is a selection of some hard work from the past few days:

Keep up the great work Primary 2 and thank you to the adults at home for helping you learn!

Have a good day boys and girls and we look forward to hearing from you 👍.

Mrs Oliver and Miss Rafferty
