Primary 2a

Monday 22nd June

Hello Primary 2a,

We have reached the end of term and it’s been a term like no other!

So, it’s time to celebrate with a party learning grid!

Happy birthday Lewis!  I hope you had an amazing birthday last week.  Arran, I hope your birthday during the holidays is fun filled!

I am extremely proud of each and every one of you for doing your very best over the last 3 months.  There will surely have been highs and lows and I can’t wait to see you all again and hear about some of them.

I have had the BEST time being your teacher.  There is no other job like it!  It has been a privilege to watch you learn and grow into the amazing young people you are today.

On Friday the summer holidays begin.  No matter what you end up doing please continue to be kind to those around you, have fun and most of all, keep smiling.

I will see you all soon as big Primary 3’s.  Your new teacher is the luckiest teacher in the school to have you all in their new class.

Lots of love and hugs

Miss Mitchell xx

Hi P2a!

It’s time to get creative!

As well as joining the whole school art challenge, I would like you to create an art gallery in your home.  Lots of people have been creative during lockdown and I would like to give you a chance to show off the work you might have made to someone at home as well as creating new things this week.

Remember to send us a photo of your ‘A View from the Window’ artwork as we would like to create a whole school video with all the entries.


Keep smiling everyone!

Hello P2a,

This week is SPORTS WEEK! If we had been at school, we would have had our sports day so this week I am challenging you to recreate sports day at home and to have a go at some of the activities which will keep you healthy.

Please send us your photos on the school email address, or via messenger on Facebook or on our Learning Journals.  We will be collecting all your photos to share with each other.

Happy birthday Taliah. It’s your birthday today! I hope you have a super day.

Teachers will be phoning home during this week and I’m looking forward to speaking to some of you.

Hi P2a!


All your learning this week is based around creating a fun movie night for you and your family.  I hope you have fun doing this together and enjoy watching a movie together at the end of the week when you have completed all the tasks.

Happy birthday Riley who turned 7 last Tuesday and Millie who was 7 on Sunday.  I hope you had a fantastic day.

As ever, let me know how you get on by uploading a photo or 2 onto your learning journal.  I would love to know what you have watched, I could use a recommendation or 2 for things to watch!!!

Hello to Primary 2 Brilliant and Primary 2 Awesome!  Missing you all very much but I hope you have all been outside safely enjoying the sunshine and fresh air over the weekend.  I’m excited to see how you get on with this week’s learning tasks.  Try your best, keep on going when it gets tricky and remember to be kind to yourself and to others.

Sending you all BIG love.

Dear Parents/Carers,

We plan to use the online Learning Journals to communicate with you as well as the website and our Facebook page.


We can see who has managed to log on and we are looking forward to keeping in touch with you.

For anyone who has not logged on, we will reset your password on Wednesday.  We’re guessing this might be one of the problems!  We will try our best to connect with you.

There is a ‘Learning Journal for parents’ app available to download from iTunes and google play for free if you prefer.

Later this week, we will share some tips for how to use Learning Journals if you are unsure.


Things are going to be stressful at times.  But when we get stressed, we don’t learn so don’t worry if you can’t get the children to complete the activities we have set you.  Spend the time looking at old pictures, read stories to your children, watch TV together.  Play.  Have fun.  Stay safe and stay at home.
