Happy Holidays and Well Wishes!

P2 EHug comic creator message

The Easter Holidays officially start at the end of today so I want to take the time to thank you all for bearing with us during these extraordinary times and to wish you all the very best. I hope you are all safe and well and that you remain so!

I also hope everyone has some nice plans for the holidays even if we are not expecting to travel far. We have been working on some holiday grids that you may choose to do or not! I hope it is helpful for some ideas you might run with but this is your holidays too after all. Enjoy them as best you can!

P2 Twitter (and design challenge)!

Dear Parents/ Carers and pupils,

To help us keep in touch we are setting up a class Twitter page. The age limit is 13 on Twitter so it is important that parents and carers monitor and oversee the communication on this account. The account will be private and monitored during school hours only. It is important that your child stays safe on line so here is some information for you.

If we have photo permission for the school website and blog we will apply this to this Twitter account as well. The code of conduct applies so everyone should be polite, considerate and respectful. It is a good way for you to share what you have been doing and for us to keep in touch.

You can follow us @RMPSPrimary2 and the school Twitter account @royalmileps

The Twitter accounts are linked to the Blog as well so you can see see these posts as well.

Our first challenge is for you to design us a Profile Picture for the account!

Your submission must be in the shape of a circle but it can be drawn by hand or made on a computer or tablet. It can be a drawing or a collage or some other electronically made image. This post from yesterday can help you if you want to scan a picture to send in. You may wish to use this document to help your design: Twitter Profile Picture Competition. Please email submissions to

  • What I am looking for:
    • a clear, neat picture/image (e.g. Take your time with your colouring in if you are drawing or colouring in.)
    • the picture should have something to do with Primary 2!
    • No larger than what can fit onto an A4 page.

Thank you! I look forward to seeing what you come up with!
