Friday 5th June

Good Morning Year 2

Challenge:  Listen to the audio of me reading the morning message.  Can you read along as I speak?

Miss Writer's Morning Message

Today is Friday 5th June, 2020 and it is nearly the weekend!   

Yesterday, I received a lovely picture of James' cat.  Have a look at our photographs page to see all the lovely work that has been sent in recently.


Today is World Environment Day.  Given our new topic in science, I thought it was quite timely that it would be now!  You can find more information here:


The goal of this holiday is to inspire long-term change, where people make a choice to take part in changing their habits, such as recycling or turning the lights off when you leave the room, turning the tap off or walking instead of driving.  What can you do today to help save the Earth?!


I know some of the activities may sometimes seem a little challenging but don't get disheartened if you can't do something.  Maybe ask an adult or older brother or sister for help or try one of the other activities instead.  Remember, I am very proud of you for trying your hardest.



Check the Mathletics page to see if you have earned a Bronze, Silver or Gold certificate for the first week of June.



If your name isn't up there, don't worry.  Keep doing Mathletics daily and earning points and you can earn a certificate for the month of June.




Joke of the Day!

What room is impossible to enter?

A mushroom. 


Fact of the Day!

Thank you to James for today's facts of the day.


You can hear a blue whale's heartbeat from more than 2 miles away.


The world's largest animal's heart weighs about 400 pounds — approximately the size of a small piano.




Start the day at 9am with PE with JOE


Morning Prayer

Father in heaven You love me. 

You are with me night and day.

I'll try to please You Father.

Bless me through the day.
