Positive Choices Week – Wednesday

Onthank On Foot


Wednesday – Colour Walk  – Choose a colour and look for objects of that colour whilst on your walk. You could take photos and make a photo collage. Fun for all of the family!


How are you feeling? Today I am feeling…..yellow!! 

Taking part in the ‘Positive Choices‘ activities is making me feel happy. I hope that you are enjoying it too and enjoying seeing the teacher videos.

Check the main blog today to exercise with Mr Swan, paint with Miss Hamilton and see our very own Mrs Klein playing the piano!

Happy Long Weekend!

We made it to Friday and the exciting news is Monday and Tuesday are holidays for pupils. 😀 Therefore we will not post any new learning until Wednesday.

We would like to say well done to all of P4.  You are all working incredibly hard during this trying time and we know you are missing your friends (and maybe even the school staff 🤭).  We miss you too and we love seeing your smiling faces in photos, videos and your chat on Teams.  Looking through our Home Learning Gallery the P4 teachers often say how proud we are of what you are doing at home and think you are all superstars.

Ideas for your days off

Now usually when you have days off some people would maybe go out for a day visit somewhere but we are still not allowed to do this so instead you could go on a virtual tour at a museum.  Many museums across the world have online virtual tours, video clips and activity ideas for people during this lockdown. Here is a list of museums that look pretty cool:

If you click on the picture the website link should be underneath.  If any of you choose to explore one of these online museums please let us know.

Stay safe everyone and enjoy your long weekend!

Mental Health Week 2020

Happy Monday P4! Hope you all had a good weekend.



We love seeing your work on your blog, teams page or by email. We are enjoying hearing what you have been up to at home. You are all working so hard and taking on the challenge of learning in a different way! Well done everyone! Keep it up!;-)

In celebration of ‘Mental Health Awareness Week 2020’ and the theme of ‘Kindness’ we are encouraging you all to get mentally healthy by spreading a little kindness.

The calendar below includes two acts of kindness each day – one for someone else and one for yourself.

It is important to be kind to yourself too!

You could follow the ideas on the calendar or create your two tasks each day. At the end of the week you might want to think about what helped you to feel happy this week.
