Wednesday 3rd 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 Wednesday 3rd June, 2020 Did you know that today is World Bicycle Day and Running Day? I did not.  So to celebrate World Bicycle Day and Running Day, I will go out for a little jog or get on my bicycle later.  Perhaps you could go for a little jog or walk too as your daily exercise.  If they have some free time and are able to, why don't you take someone in your family for a walk/jog?!

 

Joke of the Day!

What did the traffic light say to the cars?

Don't look, I'm changing!

 

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.

Amen

Activity 3 - Science

We are going to be moving onto a new topic in science today. 

 

We will be looking at the Earth and thinking about ways that we can help the Earth.

 

Today we are going to think about our environmentIt is important that we keep the environment healthy by taking care of the soil, the water, the air and all the plants and animals that live here. That way the Earth can keep giving us all the things that we need to be happy and healthy. Often though, we are not keeping the Earth healthy and this has an affect on the climate
