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’.
Well done to everyone!!
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.
We had a glorious day at Culzean today.
Bug hunting, woods walking, lunch munching and seaside paddling. We couldn’t have asked for a better summer day out.
Thank you to our parent helpers for making the day so special.
P4E were given the task of making a fraction wall using only paper, pencils, a ruler and scissors. We worked hard to find a magical solution to this problem. Here’s how we got on…
Welcome to the groovy 1970’s! Primary 4 would like to show you some highlights.
Tickets are going fast for the Primary 4 1970’s show! The show is coming together nicely and we know you won’t be disappointed! So, if you’ve still to get tickets grab them ASAP .
Can you guess who is peeking through the 1970’s picture?
Look forward to seeing you all at the show !
Primary 4 will be grooving on down memory lane and taking you back (if you were even born), to the 1970’s. The rehearsals for our part of the “Onthank 60th Birthday Show” are well under way and all the pupils have now been allocated a part. Your child will be able to tell you what part he/she has and the sort of costume they need. If you have any difficulty coming up with a costume please let us know and we will do our best to help. A pair of jeans and a colourful t-shirt is perfect if you are stuck for ideas. Some children have specific characters to play and they have already told us they have the costume at home. Please do not buy anything ! We are still looking for a more space hoppers so if you have one out in the garden shed we’d be most grateful if we could borrow it.
Thanks for your continued support!
