P2c Learning together at home 21.4.20

Welcome back to our new term of learning together at home. I hope you all managed to have a healthy and enjoyable Easter. It was lovely to have such sunny weather. I spent lots of time in my garden, took my dog for walks in quiet places, started to crochet a blanket and painted some walls in my house (not all at the same time!)

Let me know your holiday news – I’d love to hear what you have all been up to. For example, you could use the school email to send me a photo, or you could draw a picture, make a video or write a short story  and then  send that via email: admin@buckstone.edin.sch.uk
