P2 would like to say Thank you for coming to do a book scavenger hunt with us today. It was great fun !
The Book Fair arrives tomorrow (5th March) and will be in school all week.
Please see the timetable below to find out when your child’s class visits.
We hope you are all enjoying the snow but staying warm! I’m sure Buckstone is lined with new residents (in the form of snowmen!).
Looking forward to seeing all the children back in school on Monday.
Message from the Catering Department:
Due to the severe weather we have been experiencing, the catering department have been unable to receive any deliveries from suppliers. Normal deliveries are not likely to return until Tuesday 6th of March.
School kitchens will be providing a meal service however due to the issues with suppliers this will vary to the advertised menu on ParentPay. Due to the change in menus, allergen information will vary to the website and we will do our upmost to ensure all usual special diets are catered for.
We are working hard to ensure kitchens are back to advertised menus as soon as possible and your support is much appreciated.
As you will be aware all Edinburgh schools are closed tomorrow. This means we will miss World Book Day. Not to worry, here are some ideas you might want to do at home together so you can still celebrate World Book Day.
We will rearrange a suitable date to celebrate World Book Day so the children can still dress up – we were looking forward to seeing the different characters coming to school. We will let you know as soon as a date is decided.
Thank you to all the parents/carers who have completed the “All About Me” sheet with their child. Celebrating Wider Achievement is a much looked forward to part of the school day/week and seeing all of the activities/clubs pupils at Buckstone attend is fantastic! The range is amazing! The information gathered from these forms will only be used at school level to now identify any opportunities the school can offer the children.
Additional copies will be sent home over the next week if you have not managed to fill it out yet.
Our Sumdog licence expired at the end of last week.
Sadly the provider has increased the licence fee by 60% per pupil. As a result we have decided to investigate other options to support Maths learning via online applications.
We appreciate this will be a disappointment to some pupils who have actively engaged with Sumdog and been motivated to often use the application. We would hope to identify a solution to continue to support the pupils in the near future.
