Good Morning Class 1/2A
How are you all this morning? I hope you are all well and please remind the adults to keep sending me pictures of your work and your diary writing. I am so excited to read some of your diary work.
It’s almost the Easter holidays and you have two more sleeps before we finish for Easter break for two weeks. Miss Quinney is busy planning some exciting activities that you can do during the Easter break if you would like to.
I'm sure you will be ready to have a rest before we get back to learning on Monday the 20th April 2020.
Remember that Joe Wicks is doing a live PE lesson at 9am everyday! (I really enjoy starting my day off with this!) If you miss this at 9am, it is saved on his Youtube channel so don't worry! Here is the link again:

Here’s my WAGOLL:
Thursday 2nd April
This morning when I woke up decided to go out for morning walk. First I walked around my local park and it was very quiet. I saw a few dog owners taking their dogs out for a walk. I am not very good with dogs and I am really scared! Please don’t tell anyone because they will laugh at me! Can you keep it a secret?
When I got back home from my walk. I had some cereal for my breakfast with some yummy blueberries and a banana. Then I was ready to start my school work so I set up my laptop and started planning some work for class 1/2A. After that I checked my emails and I had some children from our class who had sent me a reply. I was so excited and happy to read their emails!! Eventually it was time take a break, so I called my sister who lives in Edinburgh and it was good to hear that she is well and safe. Finally I returned back to my laptop to finish planning rest of activities for the children to complete. I wonder which activity you will enjoy today!
Bye for now and see you tomorrow.
Can you log onto Study Ladder account and read the story: A Visit to the Farm
Yesterday you chose a Big Cat to research and made notes based on these questions:
Where do they live? What is their habitat like?
What do they eat? How do they hunt?
Are they an endangered species? Why?
How do they live? Alone or in packs?
What are the differences between males and females?
I also asked you to find out 2 or more interesting facts about your chosen BIG CAT. These can go in the ‘Did you know...?’ section at the end of your fact file.
I hope that you took care when you were writing your notes and that you copied spellings carefully. Can you ask a parent or an older sibling to check your notes for you, please.
I've made a Fact File Sheet for you to write on if you have a printer. If not, just write it on paper.
The headings for each section will link to your research:
Habitat (include countries and continents as well as what their habitat is like)
Diet (what they eat and how they get their food)
Are they an endangered species?
Behaviour (including who they live with)
Males and Females
Did you know...? (using your extra facts)
Write in full sentences, remembering every capital letter, finger space and full stop.
Please do SIDE 1 today and SIDE 2 tomorrow.
Easter Art Activity: Can you complete the Easter word search activity:
Story time: Time to listen to a story and you can choose which story you would like to listen: http://ballymanans.scoilnet.ie/blog/online-stories/
I hope you have a lovely day and see you all tomorrow. Remember keep safe and look after your families!
Bye for now from Mrs Ahmad and Miss Quinney
