Good morning everyone! I would like to share our Virtual Choir’s performance of Wild Mountain Thyme.

We hope you enjoy their performance. 😊

Welcome back Morningsiders!

Happy New Year to our Morningside Primary family! We hope you all managed to have an enjoyable and restful break, we are sure that you have been enjoying this snowy weather too.

Online learning will commence on Monday 11th January until at least 1st February.

Staff have been working extremely hard to plan digital online learning experiences for your children to take part in and we are looking forward to hearing from them all next week.

All learning will be accessed through Teams. Please ensure that your child can access their Glow/Teams account and if they can’t, then please email Mr Stathis at (Please ensure you have read through the online guides that have been provided on the Digital Area tab at the top of our school Blog before emailing) 

From Monday, teaching staff will issue timetables (which can be treated with as much flexibility as you need) that will provide an example of how your child’s home learning can be structured.

There will be daily numeracy and literacy lessons along with a variety of activities from other curricular areas throughout the week. Most activities will be accessed through assignments on Teams, Sumdog and Active Learn, with other online resources being included at times. Guidance on the NL Virtual Classroom will be issued through class Teams.

There will also be a live ‘check-in’ with teachers or a member of the management team most days for all classes.

We need your support to ensure that your children are encouraged to access their Team and engage in this learning. Unlike before, the children will be being taught through these digital platforms, not just consolidating prior learning.

We are here to help support you and your children as much as possible so please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any additional assistance.

Our digital learning will no doubt change and develop as the weeks progress as we discover ways to improve the experience for children, parents and our teachers.

Please be patient and understand that we are all working tirelessly to provide the best outcomes for our children and will address any difficulties as quickly as possible.

Return to School January 2020 Update

All parents/ carers should have received a letter from NLC on Monday 21st December with clarification about the arrangements for January 2021.

If you have not received it, please find attached below:

Parent carer letter January 21 return

The school will open from Wednesday 6th January until Friday 8th January for children of key workers (following approval from NLC from the application) and vulnerable families where childcare support will be provided.

All children return to learning on Monday 11th January 2021 when online learning will be in place at least until 18th January 2021.

If you are a key worker and are unable to work from home, you can apply for your child to attend school.  The service is only available to children of key workers who cannot work from home.  If a parent/carer is able to work from home then your child must stay at home. Key worker support should only be accessed where you have no other childcare alternative.

Parents/carers who are key workers should complete the form (sent via email on Monday or accessed via the link below).  This should be sent to the mailbox: 

Decisions are made by North Lanarkshire Council, please do not contact the school about the application forms.

Click the link for the online form, a list of key worker categories is attached.

An alternative version of the form is attached below:

Mrs Mitchell and Primary 1 have been working very hard over the past few weeks to prepare their Christmas Nativity, Whoops a Daisy Angel.

We find that it is best to click the link and download first before viewing so that the link doesn’t crash from the amount of people trying to access it.

Enjoy the show and have a very, merry Christmas.
