P3 Pyjama Party

Just to let you all know Primary 3 are having a pyjama party on Wednesday.  It will be a day of fun and frolics.  They can wear sensible PJs, onesies or something comfortable and can bring a small teddy in a bag (but no blankets).  They can also bring an extra snack for the afternoon for a movie session.

Important Information for Next Week: Starting Monday 18th January

Hello P3!

We are so pleased to see so many of you all online this week and engaging with your learning. Thank you for doing your best, getting online and chatting to us via Teams/email.

Now that you have all had a chance to use Microsoft Teams, we will be using this from Monday 18th January for posting all of your work and interacting with each other. Daily tasks will no longer be posted on the blog as we hope that you will agree it is easier to submit your work and interact with your teacher via Teams. Work will be posted daily via Microsoft Teams.

Next week, we will be doing a ‘live’ check-in with you all on Friday 22nd January 2021 and we cannot wait to see your faces, even if it is virtually. More details to be posted next week.

You can access Microsoft Teams using the following links:


P3H Teams Link


P3N Teams Link


P3S Teams Link

Here is a reminder of how to access Teams:


Our full ‘Guide to Teams’ is available here and will allow you to view instructions more clearly:

Onthank Primary Teams User Guide

As always, if you have any questions just drop us an email, or alternatively, call the school on 01563 525477. We are here to help.

Keep up the amazing effort – we look forward to seeing you on Teams from Monday 18th January!

Have a lovely weekend.

From all the staff at P3.

We know some of you love reading and that is great.  If you run out of Bug Club books there are a few options you can try:

  1. Free books to read yourself, listen to or read along with at https://www.booktrust.org.uk/books-and-reading/have-some-fun/storybooks-and-games/
  2. read your own books if you have any
  3. free books to download at https://monkeypen.com/pages/free-childrens-books
  4. simple and harder books at http://www.magickeys.com/books/index.html#oc

From what we can see, none of these sites need a registration.

Good morning Primary 3 and a very ‘Happy New Year’ to you all! We hope that you had a lovely Christmas and a good holiday.

Welcome to our first day as we return to Online Learning. It is a different start to 2021 than we imagined it would be when we last saw you, but we are looking forward to learning new and exciting things this term, so let’s make our latest online adventure as fun as we can!

You will find a warm welcome from all the staff at this link :

Please go to the ‘Home Learning‘ tab at the top of this page to find the work that your teachers have posted for you. 

In the main ‘Home Learning‘ section you will find a ‘Daily Planner‘ of the work for the day, which might help you as a timetable for completing work too. This will be updated each day and will provide you with tasks for literacy, numeracy and other curricular areas. You can work through this at your own pace and, if you prefer, you can complete work in any order you choose. Remember to plan in times for breaks, just like you would have at school too!

From the main ‘Home Learning‘ section you will find links for ‘Literacy‘, ‘Numeracy‘ and ‘Other Curricular Areas‘. This is where you will find the detailed information about your learning for the day. Some of the work will be for everyone to do and some of your work will be specified for the group that you usually work with in school. Your teacher will remind you of your group by email so that you know which work to do. Your teacher will also be in touch with information about your Bug Club focus book for this week.

Part of our learning this week will be ICT work, which will teach us how to access and start to use a programme called ‘Microsoft Teams’. Once everyone has managed to log in to Microsoft Teams and is gaining confidence when using it, we are going to start to use this as our main way of delivering home learning. It will allow us all to interact much more quickly and easily with one another, and will give us a much better range of options for helping to support children with their learning. Please don’t worry about making this change, we will try our very best to support you with this. 

Miss Hamilton’s class have already started to use Microsoft Teams, so you might find that Miss Hamilton has posted your work for you there as well as on this P3 Glow Blog page.

Please keep in touch with us via email and show us what work you have been doing. We would love to see your fantastic efforts and any news you have to share with us. If you have any questions or would like to show us your work, here’s a reminder of our email addresses:

Miss Hamilton                                tracey.hamilton@eastayrshire.org.uk 

Mrs Nelson                                      rhiannon.nelson@eastayrshire.org.uk

Mrs Strain                                       caroline.strain@eastayrshire.org.uk

If you should require any resources (jotters, pencils, pens etc) these will be available for you to collect at the main office. 

Most importantly, we know that this is a challenging time for families so we encourage you to do what you can, when you can

Thank you so much for your ongoing support, 

from the P3 Team – 

Miss Hamilton, Mrs Nelson and Mrs Strain

Glow password update- Mrs Strain’s class

Happy New Year!

In preparation for online learning I have reset all Glow passwords for my class. This means that you will have to use the new password to login to access online learning through Glow Blogs and Teams. This password has all be emailed to you individually. 

You will be asked to change your password as soon as you login. This means that you can choose a password for yourself that you will remember.

Once you have changed your password it should not be shared but you might want an adult at home to help you get started.

I’m looking forward to seeing you all online.

Stay safe,

Mrs Strain
