Welcome to Primary 2
Hello to all our wonderful Primary 2s,
We hope you are settling into a new learning experience at home with your home learning packs. Home learning is a new concept for all of us and we are all learning together. Remember, home learning isn’t the same as school. You have other important things to enjoy at home, like spending time with your families, fresh air outside where possible, and hopefully a lot of helping out with housework, baking, cooking and more! Try to do the tasks you can, when you can, we know you’ll try your very best. We are super proud of each and every one of you and miss you all very much!
Parents and Guardians, we have an exciting and important development for Primary 2. After Easter, we are planning to use an online tool called ClassDojo, in order that we can communicate more effectively with you as parents during these unprecedented times.
ClassDojo is an online tool that will allow us to communicate work for pupils and provide some suggestions for activities at home, while also giving our pupils a chance to send their work to us and stay in touch.
ClassDojo can be used on any device. It is a simple, free mobile app for iOS and Android, and can also be used from a computer at: www.classdojo.com.
Learn more about ClassDojo at www.classdojo.com/LearnMore
We’d really love if every parent could sign up for this tool but in order for you to do so, we will need to send you an invite by email. With this in mind we’re asking if you could complete and send the template below to Mrs Knox via the email address provided. Following this, keep an eye out for your invite in your inbox and follow the link to join your child’s class (it might be worth checking your junk mail in case the invite ends up there instead).
We will send you another email once we’re about to get up and running with ClassDojo. We hope to launch ClassDojo for week beginning 20th April.
Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.
Thinking about you all. Stay safe.
Mrs Knox & Miss Hylands

Some helpful home learning ideas
With everything that is going on at the moment; big changes to routines and lots of stories on the news it can be a really scary time for children. A nurse has created a book for children called, 'Dave the Dog is worried about Coronavirus'.
The book aims to open up conversation about Coronavirus and some of the things children might be hearing about it and provide truthful information in a reassuring and child friendly manner.
I read the story to both of my children and found it very helpful and reassuring. I hope you will too.
The short story is available online and can be accessed using the link below:
Some fun home learning ideas
We'd like to encourage you all to take part in the messages of hope rainbow art project. You can paint, draw, make a collage, create a rainbow in your garden, let your imagination run wild...
You could maybe put your art up in the window of your house so that people can see that you are thinking about them. We want to spread a little bit of hope, positivity and happiness through our community in these difficult times.
Have lots of fun!
Mrs Knox & Miss Hylands
We had a wonderful day together with P2 pupils at St. Colman's on Wednesday 26th February 2020 as part of the Shared Education Programme.
It was a fantastic day. We enjoyed finding out about the different clubs we belonged to and activities we enjoyed. We had great fun taking part in lots of fun movement activities promoting how to keep our bodies active and healthy.
Take a browse through the photos below.
