P4 have had a great day celebrating World Book Day 2020. We had dress up fun, shared our favourites stories and books, did book related tasks and some of us enjoyed paired reading with our buddies in P3.
P4K our DFS Group, had a wonderful time celebrating too. We are reading plenty of books and managing to fill in our Reading Passports for the First Minister’s Reading Challenge.
Today is National Numeracy Day. We are celebrating it as part of our Digital Week.
Here are some websites you could try.
We are the DFS pupil group for Onthank Primary School. We organise events like the DFS workshop and whole school assembly. We invited all pupils and parents/carers to come to the DFS workshop. There were lots of fun activities for everyone to do.
We have already achieved our Bronze Award and are currently working towards our Silver accreditation.
Our DFS school mascot is Dom the DFS Diamond. Keep an eye out for him around the school!
Four of our good friends have made a movie called DFS A Wider World using IMovie trailer. You will be able to check it out at a later date by scanning a QR code.

Today as part of our Dyslexia Friendly Schools journey, the whole school was involved in NO PENS DAY WEDNESDAY. This is a national speaking and listening event which encourages exciting classroom discussion. Check out the blog for class photos.
Primary 6A have had a very productive day during their No Pens Wednesday. The class worked hard and participated fully in talking and listening activities, maths using laptops, drama work portraying John Muir’s life and nature art work where the children studied the leaves, colours, textures to create a new picture.
Joe commented, ‘ Today I liked the fact that we could just put our pencils down and get up instead and be more active in our learning. My favourite bit was using my imagination to create my leaf ladybug.’
Phoebe explained, ‘Sometimes today I wanted to write things down but instead I had to talk and explain myself.’
