Good Morning Primary 2,

It is Friday! We all love a Friday at school as this means FREE TIME FRIDAY! Have you been earning all your minutes this week?! If so, remember to take at least 30 minutes of time to play with something of your choice (with your parents’ permission of course!).

The weather has been lovely this week and you have all been very busy. You will see a small selection of some of the photos uploaded to the Learning Journals below. We absolutely love seeing your photos so please keep them coming.

On a Friday in class we also go over our spelling words and do a short, informal test. Ask your grown up to read out your spelling words and see if you can remember how to spell them correctly. Can they make up a sentence containing a few of your spelling words for you to write too? Remember your capital letters, finger spaces and full stop.

Tomorrow (Saturday 23rd May) is National Elmer Day. We have read some of the Elmer stories in class before. Elmer makes the world a much brighter place. So for this year’s Elmer Day we are encouraged to spread the positivity of Elmer.

How you can get involved:

  • Get creative and play with colour – make a rainbow, a jungle collage or a milk bottle Elmer.
  • Share Elmer stories and colourful pictures to spread some happiness.
  • Wear your brightest colours on 23rd May to celebrate Elmer Day.
  • Share your photos on social media with #ElmerDay

We hope you have a lovely weekend and we will re-post next week’s Learning Grids for you on Monday morning. Remember to take lots of time to rest and have fun!

Miss Pringle and Miss Rafferty
