P4 have been experiencing the wonderful world of the orchestra and classical music.
They have been learning the instrument families and some of the individual instruments.
This week’s classical music was Carnival of the Animals – pupils listened to some of the pieces and had to guess which animal it was based on by using clues in the music. As time went on pupils were able to describe the rhythm, pitch and volume of the music in relation to animals.
P4 pupils have been learning the difference between having a Growth Mindset and a Fixed Mindset. We have learned the importance of the word “Yet”. We now say “I can’t do it yet,” instead of just giving up.
We tried out some challenges during Health and Wellbeing. We had to stay determined and try again.
We played ‘Beat the Buzzer’. It was so tricky but we had fun.
We worked hard to draw and write with the hand we least use.
We became all tangled during Twister.
We had to have determination and resilience as we built a cup tower.
Some of us made a new pathway and can now tie shoe laces.
Finally, we tried to answer as many questions as possible in one minute in the game ‘Hit the Button’.
It’s that time of year again when we start homework. At the moment we will be concentrating on our spelling and phonics. The children have all had what we expect of them for homework explained clearly, but everyone forgets things, so the P4 teachers thought it would be handy to explain to parents and carers too, so there is no confusion.
Children will copy their own spelling words in class – these have to be copied using Look Say Cover Write and Check (LSCWC) 2 more times.
Then children are expected to write 3 sentences using at least 3 words.
Two active spelling activities should be completed…
This week RAINBOW WRITING and TOUCH WRITING(children draw out the word on your hand or back).
Bug Club books will also be allocated to each child and at least one should be completed every week.
Maths homework will be given as and when appropriate.
Homework will be issued on a Monday and we expect it to be back in on a Friday.
Thank you very much for your help and support.

After nearly finishing the first 2 weeks of the new term at Onthank, we are now settling into a routine.
Our class topic is Ancient Egyptians.
We have P.E on Monday’s and Thursday’s.
It is East Ayrshire policy to not allow any jewellery to be worn at gym times and unfortunately we are not able or permitted to cover pierced ears with tape. Any child unable to remove their earring on gym days will have to sit out at the side until they can remove their earrings.
