Memorable Moments

What a year we have had P2! For your writing today, tell us about your most memorable moments.  Was it the Nativity or Class Assembly, or maybe the visit from the Fire Service?

You can be as creative as you would like but remember:
• Capital letters and full stops;
• Connectives like; and, but, so, because;
• Use your phonics to help you with spelling;
• Neatest handwriting.


Here is a good game to play to help us practise our addition and subtraction

How to apply for a Blue Peter Badge

Here is some information on how to apply for a Blue Peter Badge

 Make a nature wand
Whether your child is a wizard or a fairy, nature wands are a great outdoor activity idea and so simple to make. You can help the children to collect some twigs, flowers and leaves, and attach them together using little elastic bands. If you wanted to get really creative, you could paint the twigs and even add some glitter.

Have a lovely afternoon,

from Mrs Burn and Mrs Williams



Primary 2 – Wednesday 17th June, am

Good Morning Primary 2,

Let’s use capital letters
Capital letters are used in a variety of ways.
They are used:
– at the beginning of a sentence,
– for proper nouns (names, places, countries, days of the week, nationalities, languages),
– when using I to talk about yourself.
Try writing two sentences that use capital letters for all three reasons above. Once you’ve finished, circle the capital letters and explain why they are capital letters.
Here is and example: My sister, Becky, watched a film with me and I did not like it.

The theme for this week is the emotion ‘Joy,’ Have a look at this YouTube clip

When you think of people or things  that give you joy can make you feel full, you ‘inflate’ with joy! Helping others or being kind to someone else can bring you joy also.

Design a hot air balloon, decorate it with things that bring you joy, colours or symbols. Add people in the basket who make you feel joy.

What time is it? How long will it take?
With Sabrina and Tempo’s help we learn about the hour, minute and second hands, and explore what we do that takes an hour, a minute or a second.

Have a good morning everyone,

Good afternoon Primary 2,

We thought you may like to watch this lovely clip called ‘While We Can’t Hug.’

If you didn’t manage to do Joe Wicks this morning you could join in with this 10 minute family work-out

Water Safety

We have been experiencing some warm sunny weather recently with much more hopefully to come over the summer period. As lockdown measures start being relaxed it is important to remember to stay safe around water and that children do not enter any open water unsupervised.  The Royal Life Saving Society has a Drowning Prevention Week on the 12th to 19th of June. The following link contains resources for this week. It has advice and simple rules to follow in different water environments.

Can you make a poster or leaflet with information on how to stay safe around water.

Remember an have a look at Mrs Piper’s Art Challenge this week… Tinfoil Sculptures

Have a lovely day everyone!

Road Safety

We have noticed the roads are getting a little busier again now, so we thought it would be a good idea to remind you of the importance of road safety.  Have a look at the website

Have a good morning everyone.

Take care,
