P2 Home Learning Grid 1st June

Hello everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful Health Week, the weather was certainly with us! Please do continue to show me what you’re up to.

Today is ‘Say Something Nice‘ Day! Mrs Speedie could do with our help to get as many nice words from the whole school as she can!

It would be lovely if you could find Happy Words in your home language and make posters, drawings, photos etc about your Happy Words. You can also tell us what the words mean in your home language and why they make you or others happy.
It can be a compliment, or a word that reminds you of happy days, family times, lovely thoughts etc.
You can use your home language, a language that you or anybody in your family speak or are learning, and of course you can also use English, Spanish or Gaelic words.

My word is ‘iontach‘. It means ‘wonderful‘ in Irish.  It reminds me of home as I might hear someone say: Tá sé iontach!It is wonderful!

Please find attached the Learning Grid for this week  and Mrs Speedie’s ‘Family Task for Say Something Nice Day’ below.  As a reminder for our grids – please only do what you feel you can do. If you have any feedback  (or questions) on the grid or the tasks, I would love to hear from you.

Wednesday Challenge


Our challenge today comes from Mrs Peoples. She needs us to help with some work for the new P1 pupils .


The nursery children have been encouraged to take part in the Edinburgh Bear Hunt as part of their transition work. One of the activities they are to complete is the Cosmic Kids yoga linked to the story – It would be great if the older boys and girls could join in too, you can find it here – Remember to share pictures with us!

Health Week Ideas

Amelie and her mum have  kindly shared some of the things she has been doing to keep busy.

Scottish opera have an online production called Fever! Kids join in and learn the parts, make props etc. It has activities an info about viruses and the immune system too. It is for ages 8-12


Amelie likes Cosmic Kids yoga on you tube. It has stories to link the yoga poses so suitable for younger/all ages


We have been doing an acro balance class. (We will try to get a photo but it is hard to take pictures with Amelie balanced on me!) There is a book called Jack’s acrobatics by Rika Taeymans that has moves for a child and grown-up to do together.


Cook Stars franchise have free cookalong videos on Facebook just now. I think they put new ones up twice a week (some are healthier than others!)
