It was really important for us to show the children just how far the post reached once we had put it on Facebook.  Have a look at the pictures of our school map that show how far our post was seen across the world.

School Update Week Ending 17th April – Make a Difference Day

We are really pleased with all we achieved when the staff and a group of parents came into school to improve the environment around the school.

The hanging baskets donated by Claire Gill from Homes and Gardens are taking pride of place at the front of school and we painted the two planters at the front with the stain and replanted them with the begonias and some of the pansies that they also donated.

Bob Masters did a super job weeding and pruning the quiet area and Eleanor did a massive litter pick on the field

Mrs Loakes put the veg beds together and up on the field, donated again by Homes and Gardens.

Mr Moss, Mrs Redwood, Callum and Lizell also painted the PE shed and a long length of the playground fencing. Still a bit to go but we will get there!

Mr Hill and a friend from RAF Wyton also painted some more of the rear of the school as a thank you for the schools contribution to Buck Fest that will take place on the Millennium Field on Sunday 19th July.

We also have Homes and Gardens to thank for the blue pots are amazing and we plan to put them outside the hall, the larger one with some large indoor plants in and the smaller one with the poppies from the Tower of London.

We hope to continue with improving our school environment by finishing the fence, painting all the outside furniture and planters. We would also like to continue to paint the building and cut and prune where needed.

We will be running two more Make a Difference Saturday mornings 9- 12 this term on the 9th May and 13th June, it would be great if we could get as many people as possible if you can spare just an hour or two that is fine.

School Update Week Ending 13th March – Comic Relief

Many of our children came into school with their faces painted for ‘Funny Faces for Comic Relief Day’.  The children also enjoyed their biscuits at playtime.  The bus children deserve a special mention as they have completed their journeys to and from school in silence, to raise money for Comic Relief.  Thank you for the donations sent in – we will inform you of the total in next week’s round-up.

School Update Week Ending 13th March – Mothers Day Lunch

Once again we had our Mothers Day lunch when we entertained over 80 mums and grandmas.  A delicious meal of lemon and herb turkey breast fillet, chicken and roasted garlic lasagne or cheese and onion quiche was serve followed by desserts of meringue nests with fruit, white chocolate cookies or strawberry ice cream was served to our guests.  Every mum and grandma left with a gift of a Mothers Day daffodil.

Mrs Bigg and her team had an envious task of serving our guests, but did so with their usual well tuned organisation and happy smiling faces.  Thank you to the kitchen staff for a lovely meal and the midday supervisors for their organisation in the hall with some many guests.

We are now looking forward to our Fathers Day lunch in June

Buckden Book Day – 27th February

It was lovely to see so many children in a range of outfits to celebrate and raise money for Buckden Book Day.  The event was arranged by FOBS to raise funds for the newly refurbished libraries in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.

From Tom Gates to Matilda, princesses to Dalmatians, all children (and parents) made a wonderful effort with their costumes.

Thank you for your donations.  We raised £166.10 towards buying new books for both libraries.

School Update Week Ending 27th February – School Improvements

As we strive to improve our school surroundings and facilities, we would like to say a huge thank you to Andy, Craig and Olivia from Bosch Rexroth.  During our half-term break they took a day away from the office to start the huge job of painting the outside of our school. Bosch Rexroth not only supplied us with the labour but they purchased all of the paint and equipment to do this.  In addition to this they donated a great range of Bosch power tools which will be a fantastic help as we go forward in our improvement plan.
