Monday 11th May

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 Monday 11th May, 2020.  I hope you had a wonderful long weekend and managed to enjoy some of the sun on Friday and Saturday.  Sunday and today are very blustery days. 


Below I have added a picture of a cloud that I saw.  I thought it was a very interesting picture because he looked like an extremely bossy cloud; telling the other clouds off and pushing them out of his way!  I wonder if you've seen any interesting sights this weekend.  


I have some other very exciting news for you.  In our garden there is a small nest that belongs to a robin and she has 5 tiny, white eggs that she sits on for a lot of the day.  She's placed the nest right next to a window so we can see them!  If I can take a picture without scaring her or disturbing her, I will but I must be very careful as I do not want to bother her.


Have a lovely day!

Miss Writer
