EMail Subscription Service!

Our email subscription service is now ready for you to sign up! This will send a daily email of any updates on our school blogs. Please see the image below to see where to find the sign up form.

A couple of things to be aware of:

  • Please pick Whole School News and any additional stages you would like to receive email updates from (eg. select Whole School News, Primary 3 and Primary 6 if you have children in P3 and P6).
  • You will only receive an email if there has been any updates to the blog.
  • Emails will be delivered in the evening, please check your junk mail and mark the sender as safe if emails end up in there.
  • The emails will come from an email address that is not monitored by the school. Please do not reply to these emails or use it for any communication as they will not be received. Please use bishoptonenquiries@renfrewshire.gov.uk
  • If you had previously subscribed to Whole School News using the old system, your email may already be registered with MailChimp and you will need to complete a verification process via your email to add additional classes.

As with any new system, there will probably be some teething issues so bear with us while we sort them out. All blog updates are automatically populated to our school Twitter and Facebook feeds that can be found here….

Updates to Teams

 

Over the next couple of weeks, I will be making changes to the Bishopton class Teams. This will involve moving children into their new Teams class so it may appear different when they next login. The class teachers will be added to the Teams at the start of the new term.

With thanks,

Website Changes and EMail Updates

Please be aware that the school website is currently under construction while getting ready for the new school year.

Over the next few days, all email subscriptions for class blogs and the main school blog will be stopped as the service we use for this is closing down. We will let you know when all changes have been made and a new email subscription has been set up.

Please be aware that this means you should check the blog directly for school updates until a new email subscription service has been set up.

With thanks!

Word and PowerPoint Download via Glow

Well done to everyone on doing such a great job with their online learning! We seem to be having less technical issues as the days go on which makes things a lot easier.

One thing some of you may not be aware of is that all Glow users can download Microsoft Office 365 onto their devices (Word, PowerPoint, Excel etc.). This should really help if you are having problems with viewing, or editing, some of the resources that are being added to assignments.

Here are some pointers on how to download Office 365:

Once your child has logged into Glow and are in the Launchpad area, if they click on the wee house, this will take them to the Bishopton Primary School apps area.

Look for this tile and it will guide you through downloading Office365 onto your device.

Office is also available as an app on tablets/iPads etc. Look for this icon in your app store. As with Teams, the login details are the full Glow email address (eg. gw10surnamefirstname@glow.sch.uk and the password used to access Glow).

Hopefully this will help a little!

Glow Password Reset

Hello there,

As you will be aware we will return to online learning for the week beginning 11th January. If your child has forgotten their password to get into Glow and Teams, please complete the form below. It will be reset to a default password of bishopton123. When your child logs in to Glow for the first time with this password they will be prompted to change their password. We have found that a 3 word phrase (with spaces) works well and helps them to remember it. For example big pink pig.

There are various help pages and videos for Glow and Teams here. Help on changing passwords can be found in the document below.

Take care, stay safe, and have a wonderful Christmas!

Home Learning – Links and Office365

Hello everyone!

A big well done on a great effort today.

Sumdog, MangaHigh and Accelerated Reader Links

There were a few issues that cropped up. One of these was the Sumdog and MangaHigh links within Teams were not loading properly at times. To help with this I have posted buttons on the school blog. These will take you to the websites.

Logging into Teams App

Another common issue was when people were trying to login to the Teams app. For Glow you only need the username part of the login (eg. gw16accountpretend), for Teams you need the full email address (eg. gw16accountpretend@glow.sch.uk) so need to pop @glow.sch.uk onto the end of the username. The password is the same.

Office 365 Download

One thing it may be handy to know, is that all pupils are able to download Microsoft 365 (Word, PowerPoint, Excel etc.). Once they have logged into Glow and are in the Launchpad area, if they click on the wee house, this will take them to the Bishopton Primary School apps area.

Look for this tile and it will guide you through downloading Office365 onto your device.

Office is also available as an app on tablets/iPads etc. Look for this icon in your app store. As with Teams, the login details are the full Glow email address (eg. gw10surnamefirstname@glow.sch.uk and the password used to access Glow).

Logging into Teams App

Image result for teams logo

Hello everyone!

I hope you are all doing well with your home learning today. Some people are having difficulty logging in to the Teams app using their Glow logins.

For logging into Teams, you need to use the full Glow login and the password. eg. the login would be gw16accountpretend@glow.sch.uk (whereas for Glow you would just use the bit before the @ symbol).

Password is just the same.

Another thing to mention, if you have more than one user using Glow and Teams in a browser and are switching between them, they will need to logout of both Glow and Teams. They are two systems that work together but are managed in different ways. This is why some people are finding one child has logged out of Glow and someone else has signed in, Teams is still set up for the first child.

I will pop little posts up like this as we notice any issues that are cropping up. Everyone is trying really hard today and we are making real progress in becoming experts in Glow and Teams! Well done everyone.

Farming and Agriculture Topic – Help Needed!

This term, Primary 4 will be learning about food and the journey from farm to fork. We were wondering if there is anyone in our school community who works in this area who could come and talk to the children about farming, agriculture and the journey their food goes through before it reaches them on the dinner table.

If you could help with this project, please complete the contact form below.

With thanks, the P4 Teachers

Digital Leaders 2019

Today you watched a short video about Digital Leaders. The Digital Leaders will be trained to use different types of technology and will use their expertise to support the pupils and staff in our school community. Here is the short film you watched today:

If you are interested in becoming a Digital Leader, application forms are available outside the P4B classroom. These must be completed and returned to Miss Burnett by Friday 20th September.
