Goodbye p2!

It has been a pleasure to get to know you all and teach you this year. We are so proud of you all! Thank you for all your collaboration during lockdown – you have been amazing! Please watch this short goodbye video from us.

As a goodbye gift from us – we have sponsored a Hawksbill Turtle with the WWF on your behalf. More information will arrive over the summer holidays and will be shared with you by your P3 teachers. You can download the certificate and picture below. We have also included information from WWF about how your sponsorship will help to protect and save turtles.

Marine turtles are excellent navigators – they often migrate hundreds, even thousands of kilometres between feeding and nesting grounds. Male turtles never leave the sea, but females come ashore to lay eggs – amazingly to the same beach where they themselves hatched.

THREATS

80% Decline in Turtles over 3 generations

FISHING

Marine turtles need to get to the surface to breathe, and if they get caught up in fishing gear, they can drown.

HABITAT DESTRUCTION

One of the main threats marine turtles face is the destruction of their habitats. Development along coastlines is destroying nesting beaches, making it harder for female turtles to lay their eggs.

POACHING

Marine turtles are poached for their meat and shells, and nests are raided for eggs, which are seen as a delicacy in some cultures.

CLIMATE CHANGE

Climate change is causing sea levels to rise, and increase the number, and the intensity, of storms. This can damage and destroy nesting beaches.

HOW WE CAN HELP

We’re reducing the negative impact of fishing practices on marine turtles by, including the use of less-harmful fishing gear – for example, ‘circle hooks’ instead of traditional ‘j’ hooks can reduce accidental capture of turtles by up to 80%.

We’re helping protect marine turtle habitats. In Fiji, we’re engaging with local communities to help them protect, monitor and manage turtle nesting grounds

Your adoption and support will help us:

  • Reduce accidental by-catch of turtles and lobbying to have on-board observers on fishing vessels
  • Influencing national policy including input into the Fiji Sea Turtle Recovery Plan
  • Community protection, monitoring and community turtle monitors and sharing of data and insights to improve turtle conservation
  • Educating local communities on the importance of Marine Turtles and their threatened status.
  • Capacity building on law enforcement, protection, management, research and monitoring
  • Promoting sustainable development and livelihood diversification to reduce pressure on marine environment
  • Fund our other essential work around the world

Turtles have light, spongy bones that help them float.

p2 phonics revision

For our last week of learning from home, we are looking at two sounds that we learned in P2; ‘ck’ and ‘igh.’ Once you have watched the videos, have a go at the tasks and see if you can remember how to use the sounds. A tip for using ‘ck’ or ‘k’ is if a word has a short vowel sound before the /k/ sound (such as lick, peck, lack, lock, luck, picker) then you use ‘ck’. If there is a long vowel sound (such as look or leek) then you only need a ‘k’. Have fun!

Trinity’s got talent- vote for your favourite!

We certainly have a lot of talent at Trinity PS! We’d like to say a huge well done to everyone that entered – you were so brave and confident to share your talents. The House Captains and staff thoroughly enjoyed watching all of the entries. It was extremely tough to choose just 12 finalists from a very large field!

As organisers of the event, the House Captains have chosen 12 acts to feature in our virtual ‘Trinity’s Got Talent’ video.

Watch here:

You can vote here for your favourite before 5pm on Wednesday 24th June. You can only vote once and finalists may vote for themselves!

P2- NUMERACY TASK

Hello P2!

Today’s task is to compare and order numbers. It is always a good idea to do a little bit of counting each day. Listen to ‘The Big Numbers Song’ on YouTube to get you thinking about numbers ranging from 0-100.

You can then complete one of the following worksheets below. You may wish to use the attached 100 square to help you.

This BBC Bitesize video may also help you to understand how we order and display numbers from the smallest number to the largest number.https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zkkwmp3
