Learning Together at Home: Thursday 14th May 2020

Hello Everyone!

A little extra information today…


Edinburgh City Council are leading a transition project for all Primary One children. The project is linked to Michael Rosen’s ‘We’re Going on a Bear hunt”. The Council have created a website with ideas for parents and carers which goes live on the 18th May. I am also attaching a letter with more information.

Although The City of Edinburgh Council are sharing ideas on their website, I will also be planning activities with the nursery team. We will begin sharing Buckstone ideas using the blog from Monday 25th May to support P1 transition.

I hope this information is helpful and there will be more to follow on this blog from Monday 25th May.


All pre-school children should receive their Transition Report today via email from the Admin Team. Children who are being deferred will not receive a report.

Apologies if I have only added one name of a parent. I only had access to parent information from the online learning journal pages as we have no school access. Also, as noted in the report letter, I have not assessed pencil grip since nursery finished and your child’s pencil grip may have changed.

Happy Reading!

It’s Numeracy and Maths day today!

I hope everyone had a lovely day yesterday taking part in the Circus Theme posted by Mrs Conlin.

We will focus on measure each week this month. We are focusing on measuring using hand spans this week. This can be done indoors or outdoors. I have added an image of a ‘Handspan’ onto the Power Point presentation.

Tomorrow…the nursery team are focusing entirely on HEALTH. Each member of the team will share an activity linked to Health Week.

Have a brilliant day!

Miss Davidson
