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.
We all have group novels home this week. Our reading should be completed for Monday, ready for group discussions,
