Onthank Primary 3

Week Beginning 22nd June


And, just like that it’s the last week of Primary 2. Can you believe it? We can’t!

Let’s have some relaxing and fun activities this week in celebration of our final week together! The teachers are busy in school making preparations for your return in August so we’ll post the suggested activities for the week again and you can do them at your leisure. The weather is to be changeable all week, with the best days from Wednesday onwards but you can try and get out when you can.

What’s the plan this week?:

School Poster Competition

Art Attack Afternoon

Primary 3 transition messages – Check in on Wednesday

Wheely Fun Day

Wacky Water Play Day

Graduation Day – Check back on Thursday

Picnic Planning

School Poster Competition

Mr McIlwraith has sent the following instructions asking you to design a banner or poster that will actually be made into a REAL POSTER. How amazing is that? Get your arty ideas out and remember to space your pictures well across your page and make your drawings clear. Good Luck everyone!

We have a special competition for you to complete during the last week of term! We would like our young people to design a banner or poster which welcomes all our visitors to the school. Your poster should include our school values – Confidence, Happiness, Achievement, Respect and Responsibility, as well as the school logo. The poster should also include drawings of pupils in their school uniform. Remember to make it bright and welcoming!

The winner will receive a special prize as well as their poster professionally produced and displayed around the school building on our return in August. All entries should be sent to Mr McIlwraith no later than Friday 26th June 2020. Please email your entry to eadavid.mcilwraith1@glow.sch.uk

Art Attack Afternoon

Fun stuff to try out:

An art idea I enjoy is something called Origami. I learned about it when I was at primary school as a child and I’ve never forgotten these ones. Origami is the skill of paper folding to make models without using scissors and glue. You’ll need a growth mindset to work away and make mistakes and work hard to get better at what looks like a tricky skill at the start.

– Watch this video and have a try if you would like a challenge.

Try these ideas too.

Anything else?

Well, as usual, if you’d like to check into your websites (Bug Club, MyMaths, Teach Your Monster To Read) and finish off any work in there or just go and cosy up with a good book then your work here is done.

We hope you have a lovely week and check back on Friday for some goodbye messages from your teachers.
