P6 Christmas Craft

Our stunning lanterns will be going on sale at the Christmas Fayre. Pupils can reserve their own creation by bringing in £2 tomorrow morning. These will make a beautiful Christmas gift and the children are justifiably proud of each individual piece.IMG_1527[1]

Buckstone’s Wee Sleep Out 2018!

I just wanted to say how incredibly proud I am of all of the Primary 6 children who took part in the Wee Sleep Out last night!

The children have taken a leading role in the planning, advertising, research and organisation of this event from the beginning and have shown how determined, resilient and passionate they are to support a very worth while cause!

Well done everyone!

P6 Christmas Fair Craft

Primary 6 children have been asked to make something crafty to sell at the christmas fair.

We would like to make glass candle holders.  (using battery operated tea lights)

Please, if possible, could you bring in a glass jar by the end of next week – Friday 23rd November to enable us to have enough time to decorate these to sell at the fair which is taking place on Friday 30th November.

If you have extras, these would also be gratefully received.

Many thanks,

P6 Team

Reflective Friday 16.11.18

Just to say that P6 class w.ere absolutely, fantastic at the ‘wee sleepout’ last night. We have raised over £2300 and counting while raising our awareness of homelessness & those affected.

The breakfast supplied by the parents was delicious and very welcome too!



P7 Children In Need Day Friday 16th November 2018

Well done to all the awesome Primary 7 children who organised and delivered a fun and inclusive Activity Day raising vital funds for Children In Need.  There were Free Activities where children could win a prize: Pin the Bandana on the Pudsey; Best Dressed Children per Stage.  There was also a Free Quiz: winners will be announced next week once the Primary 7s have had a chance to mark the answer sheets.

P7M planned a Guess Pudsey’s Birthday competition at 50p per guess.  We used a Random Date Generator to choose the date which was 30th November.  The winner was a girl in P5HW.  P7M presented her with her cuddly Pudsey backpack.

The Bake Sale organised by P7F was a massive sellout!  Not a crumb was left!  The Primary 7 children engaged with all the children and listened carefully to what their customers wanted and ensured they gave them the correct change.

P7R had queues out of the door for Face Painting.  The Artists did a superb job of turning their customers into tremendous Pudseys, Tigers, Cats, Lizards and Dragons!

Mrs Magill, Miss Fotheringham and Miss Robinson are incredibly proud of you all!

Have a wonderful weekend, have fun, be safe 🙂

P6 Wee Sleepout!

Primary 6 have decided to support the local charity Social Bite!

Social Bite are on a mission to STOP homelessness in Scotland.

The way P6 are going to support them is by doing a Wee Sleepout, sleeping in the gym hall.

The reason we chose to do a sleepout rather than anything else is because every year Social Bite do a sleep in the park to raise money. We wanted to know what it would feel like to be sleeping out of our comfort zone with no mattress, and no technology, but it won’t be as bad as being homeless but it will still be hard.
