Tuesday 19th 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 19th May, 2020.  Thank you so much for all the still life paintings!  We really do have some very talented artists in our class. I have posted all the recent pictures you have sent in photographs from home.  


I was thinking early this morning...  It might be fun if, instead of me doing a joke of the day or a fun fact of the day, one of you could send me your favourite joke or a really interesting fact and I could share it with you.  So, send me a joke or fun fact and I will post it.


Did anyone guess the vegetables in my garden?  Let me tell you.  I have: basil, thyme, mint, parsley, peas, lettuce, tomatoes, potatoes and chard.


Remember to drink lots of water today because it's going to be a nice hot day.


Fact of the Day!

One quarter of your bones are in your feet. 



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.
