Primary 2 love reading!

We Love Books! Kids' writing competition on RTÉ Jr

Every day Primary 2 enjoy the opportunity to read a story in class.  We choose a book from our class library, and after reading it we swap books with the person sitting beside us,  This morning, Mrs Swanston was so impressed at how well we were doing with reading!  Some of us even got stickers for good reading!  Even though there might be some words we find tricky to read, we are trying to sound out the word or ask a friend for some help.  We love looking at the pictures too.

26th June 2020 – Last day of term

Hard to believe this is the last Friday in Primary 2

It has been lovely to watch you learn and grow this year. You have experienced lots of new things, building your confidence as you learned!  It has been a pleasure to watch you all become more responsible, following our school values and contributing positively to the life of St Mary’s. I am so proud of each and every one of you! What an incredibly different year you have had in Primary 2 and I feel privileged to be part of it with you.

Thank you to all of your parents who have kept you safe and helped you to keep learning in so many different ways as well as keeping me up to date with lots of photos!

I have put together some of our memories in a video, I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I do! Please click on the link to watch the video:

Hello Primary 2 – our last mid week check in!

Can you believe this is our last mid week check in P2??

I have received some lovely cards, thank you so much! It has been lovey to see some of you pop into school at lunchtime.

I have also received some great “flat Miss Stenhouse” photos. It looks like I have been up to lots of great things from spending time with your toys, seeing the swans and investigating nature! I love it, thank you.

Well done everyone for your continued efforts at Home Learning and a big well done to all the adults supporting you at home.


Last week of school – how are you feeling? Have you checked in with someone?

In six weeks’ time we will be returning to school to continue or learning journey, this can make different people feel different emotions. It will help if you talk through how you are feeling with an adult, think about the things you enjoy at school and are looking forward to getting back to! I can wait to see everyone again!

Talking about how you are feeling will help your to manage your emotions.

I am still putting together some photos of our time together in P2 along with video messages that have been sent in. If you want to send a message in you can do so up to Thursday evening. The video will be posted on Friday to mark the last day of term.

Last week in Primary 2!

Thanks to everyone who has sent in a video message. We don’t have enough yet to make a video so please send in your videos with your message to your classmate as soon as you can – I can’t do this without you! Send the videos to:  I look forward to seeing all your faces! For those who have managed to send one  in already, well done and a great big thank you!

Remember it’s important to think about how we feel and what is causing us to feel that way. Have a check in with an adult. Yesterday Miss Stenhouse was feeling happy, happy is the emotion word.  The “trigger” for Miss Stenhouse feeling happy was seeing so many of your faces yesterday and getting to hear what you have been up to.
