Mrs Burns P3B October Break

Dear Parents/Carers,

I would like to start by introducing myself, my name is Mrs. Burns and I have the privilege of being your child’s classroom teacher for the academic year 21/22. As a class, we are looking forward to having a positive and rewarding year.

It is hard to believe that we are already at the end of a very busy and productive term one!Many thanks to all who have responded to our Teacher Phone Consultations. I am working my way through the list of responses. It has been a pleasure to be able to discuss your child’s progress and future aims. If you have yet to respond and would like an appointment, please contact the office and we can arrange something for after the October break.

P.E. this year is on a Monday morning (Team Games), Tuesday afternoon (Ball Skills), and Thursday Afternoon (Yoga and Mindfulness). As Covid restrictions continue to ease we are hoping that next term we will be able to access the gym halls. Until then P.E. will remain outside.

I have ‘non-class contact time’ on Thursday and Friday mornings. During this time Miss Hamilton will be taking the class. Mrs. Smith will be providing us with in-class assistance. We will be working as a team to ensure that there is continuity and progression in your child’s learning journey.

Homework can be found on TEAMs. Yesterday I sent home a homework jotter for you to use and keep at home. Their Glow account is where they will find an icon to log into their TEAMs account. They can upload their work from their jotter by posting a picture of it. We are all (including me) still learning how to navigate TEAMs. We will continue to practice logging in in class. Part of East Ayrshires ICT policy is for the children to learn their username and password to ensure that TEAMs is a private area between the teacher and student. We have access to school laptops all day Monday and I tend to squeeze some extra time in on a Friday when we can. We appreciate your patience and perseverance whilst we learn a new way to share homework.

Finally, a reminder that as the weather becomes wetter children should come to school with a warm jacket, preferably with a hood. We often like to take our learning outside…whatever the weather!

I hope you all have an enjoyable October break and I look forward to welcoming your child back on Tuesday 19th October.

(Monday is an in-service day)


Kind Regards,

Mrs. Burns

Homework – w.b 27.09.21

The homework activities we would like you to complete this week have been posted onto the Teams page for your class, by your teacher.

As this is our first official week using Teams, we may have some troubleshooting or teething problems so please don’t worry, we will do our best to fix them as soon as possible. Remember, you can use the ‘Ask Miss…’ channel on Teams and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

We would like you to share some pictures of your fantastic work with us using the ‘Homework’ channel on Teams too.

Welcome Back and Homework

We hope you all had a fantastic September weekend and are ready to kick start our homework!

We have been working hard setting up a new Microsoft Team for each class and getting usernames and passwords all ready to access Glow and Teams.

Since it is our first time, we have been learning how to access and use our Glow accounts and Microsoft Teams in class and now we are setting the challenge of trying it out at home (see below). 

Below are the homework activities we would like you to complete this week.

  • Log on and read the book allocated on your Bug Club account. Remember to close all the bugs!

  • Complete the phonics game allocated on your Bug Club account.

  • Click on the link for Hit the Button and click ‘doubles’. Choose the level you feel confident working at. Remember, you can change this if you are finding it too easy or too challenging. https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

  • Try logging into your Glow account and open up Teams. Interact on Teams by responding to the question posted by your teacher.

  • Read your library book and return it on Friday.

Below is a link to remind you how to access and use Bug Club that Mrs Kidd kindly recorded for parents/carers across the school.


Message for Primary 3N

For homework this week please log in to Bug Club to read a book and do a phonics game allocated to you. Also, have a go at the Hit the Button doubles maths game. 

Mrs Nelson will help you log in to Teams in class first before asking you to try this at home as part of your homework next week.

We please ask that if you have any troubleshooting problems with Bug Club or Glow/Teams that you let your teacher know this week so we can sort this out as soon as possible.

This week your homework is on Bug Club and online websites but over the coming weeks we will be starting to post homework on Teams and would like you to share your fantastic work with us via this platform too.

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:

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.
