Wednesday 8th July

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 8th July, 2020.


I hope you had a lovely day yesterday. It was so nice to speak with Group 2 and 3.  I look forward to seeing Group 1 on Friday at 9:30am.


I do have to appologise for the technical problems; however, you all did very well to overcome these challenges.   This is very interesting given we were talking about how to overcome challenges with our work!  You were all patient and resilient and thought of creative ways to resolve our problems!  All excellent character traits.  Well done.


Please keep sending in pictures of your work.  If you would like to send a video of you playing your instruments please do.  We had a super recital of Fur Elise by Beethoven.  


Did you know that it is the 250th anniversary of Beethoven's birthday?! 

Watch this video to hear some of his music - do you recognise any of the pieces he composed? 

Beethoven faced many challenges in his life. 

What do you think his challenges were?

Joke of the Day!

What day of the week are most twins born on?


Start the day at 9am with a 10 minute kids workout class! 

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.

Activity 3 - Science


How clean are your hands? 


Which of these hands do you think is dirty and which is clean?  Why?


Today we are going to do an experiment to see what happens if your hands are dirty and clean.

This is what you will need: 



  • X3 ziplock plastic bags
  • X3 slices of bread
  • X1 set of dirty hands
  • X1 set of cleanly washed hands (use the happy birthday song)



1)  Label each of the three bags:

  • Control
  • Dirty
  • Clean


2)  Place one slice of bread in the “control” bag without touching it.  You can use clean tongs, or turn the resealable bag inside out and use it like a glove to get the slice inside.  Seal the bag.


3)  Remove a second slice of bread.  Touch the bread with your unwashed hands.  Place the bread in the bag and seal it.


4)  Now wash your hands to the Happy Birthday song with soap and water.


5)  Take a third slice of bread and touch the bread with your freshly-washed hands.  Place the bread in the bag and seal it.


Take all three sealed bags and put them in a cool, dry place.


Look at the bread daily and write down your observations, but do not take the bread out of the bags.

In a few days, mould should start to appear.


Question to answer:

  • What slice of bread gets mouldy first?
  • Which grows the most mould?
  • Which grows the least?
  • If mould starts to appear, take a ruler and measure it and record your observations.
  • You can even draw a picture of the bread each day, or keep a photo diary by taking pictures of the bread each day to watch the changes over time.
