Monday 27th April

Good Morning Year 2

Today is Monday 27th April, 2020.  I've just come downstairs and it's not a very sunny day.  Yesterday was beautiful.  I went for a bike ride and saw some ducklings with their mother duck.  I will post a picture for you because they were SO adorable.


Joke of the Day!

Why did the dinosaur cross the road?

Because the chicken wasn’t born yet.



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 want to love You always,

In all I do and say.

I'll try to please You Father.

Bless me through the day.





Read through the Monday Morning Liturgy with your family.
