Tuesday 12th 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 Tuesday 12th May, 2020.  Wow, wow, wow.....  I have just looked at the children who have earned Mathletics certifiates since the beginning of May.  I CAN NOT believe it.  We have some new names up there so well done!  Every little extra works towards earning a certificate.  I will post your names up on the Mathletics Hall of Fame on Friday.


I took a picture of another strange-looking tree for you.  What do you think it looks like?  On the other side, there was a huge hole you could walk in!  If you are able to go for a walk, start looking at the trees.  Do you see different shaped leaves?  Different shaped trunks?  Different colours and sizes?


I tried to take a picture of the robin but she was fast asleep and you couldn't really see her and I didn't want to disturb her.  I will try again another day.


Remember to send me in photographs of what you are doing! There are lots of new photographs in Your Photographs from Home.


Joke of the Day!

Why do you never see elephants hiding in trees?

Because they're so good at it! 



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.
