Welcome everyone to Primary 4.  I hope that you are settling in and enjoying being back at school and seeing all your friends again.  Mrs Klein, Miss Ellis and Mrs McCall are looking forward to an exciting year ahead full of new learning experiences and fun, SO…

let’s get learning!!

Last day of Primary 3 – 26.06.20

Looks like we finally made it to the end of one of the strangest years in Onthank Primary School’s history, boys and girls. I don’t think any of us will forget this one!

Check your own Class Teams page for a message from your teachers. 😊

The school bell rings at 1pm today to signal the start of your Summer Holidays!!! 🔔🏫

Stay safe, take care and we’ll see you all back, bright and bushy tailed, in August 🌞

24.6.20  The Day Is Here

Well you have all successfully made it to the end of Primary 3 and today we welcome everyone to their new teachers and their classes.  In Primary 4 you will be coming in and out via the green door (P7 playground) and using only green marked toilets.  You will all know which group you are in but we all hope that it doesn’t last too long.

Please don’t worry about your return in August if you can.  Enjoy your summer holiday.

Happy Friday P3!

We are almost on the final countdown to the Summer Holidays! 😱 How did that happen?

We hope you’ve all been enjoying this beautiful, warm weather. 🌞 Even the rain has been lovely and warm. ⛈️

Today is the last day for submitting your favourite memory of the school year to Miss Cook for our last Virtual Assembly. It doesn’t have to be a video. It can be a photograph or a picture too 👍

Good morning and Happy Monday! ☀️

We’ve had a couple of busy weeks with our virtual sports celebration followed by Positive Choices week.

We hope you’ve enjoyed the wide variety of activities that have been on offer and, like us, can’t wait to see the video round ups and results…we will keep you posted on our Teams pages when and where to look for these when they’re posted online!

Pop over to the main school ‘Lockdown Blog’ page to find a message from Mrs Klein to congratulate you for your participation in ‘The First Minister’s Reading Challenge’! 

A quieter, more normal week this week and work will be posted as usual in the subject tabs.

Hope you have a lovely day and remember to make the most of fun in the sun too! ☀️
