P5 fundraising for Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity (Sick Kids)

Hello,

In P5 we are going to be doing a toy sale to raise money for the Sick Kids Foundation. It is going to be on Thursday 4th April in school near the P5 classrooms.

If you have any toys that you would like to donate can you please bring them in next week and by Monday 1st of April at the latest.

Please don’t bring in toys that you want to keep, you can bring in toys that you don’t play with any more or that have been sitting in your cupboard. It might be a good time to have a spring clean!

Please put any toys you bring in on the table in the P5 library.

Some examples of toys we would like are

Books

Action figures or Barbies

Soft toys

Cars

Baby toys so you can buy them for younger brother and sisters

Board games

Loom bands

Lego

Cards

Can you please make sure the toys are clean and good quality.

Thanks

P5H and P5HW

Buckstone PS turns 40!

On Friday 23rd March it was a special day for the pupils and staff of Buckstone Primary School. We were not only celebrating 40 years of our school but we also opened our new gym hall. This definitely called for a special celebration.

After the official opening, where the oldest P7 and oldest P1 joined with one of the first pupils at Buckstone and the current Headteacher to cut the ribbon, the show began. Each year stage sang a song from the 1970s. Songs included Money, Money, Money by Abba and We are the Champions by Queen. Everyone did a great job at learning the lyrics and adding in actions/dance moves.

After each song the children were presented with a medal to mark the 40th birthday of the school. They absolutely loved their medals.

Refreshments were then served (some even made by the children) to end the occasion. We all thoroughly enjoyed the day and look forward to the next 40 years of Buckstone PS!

 

 

Book your Parents’ Evening Consultation Online from Tuesday 18:00

We are planning to use the booking system for Parent Consultation Evenings, as used in the Autumn term. Our Parent Consultations are on Wednesday 14th and Thursday 15th March from 16:00 until 18:30. The system will allow you to choose appointments for your child/children.

We plan to open Bookings on Tuesday 6th March at 18:00 and close at 09:00 on Monday 12th March. (Apologies for the 1 day delay, we do still have a few final adjustments to make which will be finalised in school on Tuesday – another knock-on from the lost days last week).

 
To book go to:

http://www.parents-booking.co.uk/buckstoneprimary

To book you will need:
•Your title and surname (these must match those we have on record for you)
•Your child’s first name, surname and date of birth

Book your Parents’ Nursery “Cuppa Chat” Online from Tuesday 18:00

Following the success of using the new online booking system for parents to book for the Parent Consultation Evenings we are rolling out the system to be used for the “Cuppa Chat” sessions held in the Nursery.

These sessions will be held on Wednesday 14th and Thursday 15th March from 12:30 until 15:30. The system will allow you to choose appointments for your child/children.

We plan to open Bookings on Tuesday 6th March at 18:00 and close at 09:00 on Monday 12th March. (Apologies for the 1 day delay, we do still have a few final adjustments to make which will be finalised in school on Tuesday – another knock-on from the lost days last week).
 
To book go to:

To book you will need:
•Your title and surname (these must match those we have on record for you)
•Your child’s first name, surname and date of birth

Note:
The Nursery bookings are configured slightly different to those used in the school. Rather than booking with a member of staff you are booking with a “dummy” staff member named:

  • Nursery14 – if you want to book on Wednesday 14th
  • Nursery15 – if you want to book on Thursday 15th

This is because there are a variety of staff members involved in the sessions on both days.

Most parents will be able to select their preferred day (please do not book on both the 14th & 15th). There are 5 children/parents who are linked uniquely to a particular day – I understand the Nursery team will have informed those parents.
