Nursery Christmas Party on PhotoPeach
Musselburgh Cluster held a competition to design our own Olympic torches. The winners were chosen and then began the journey. We received the torches from Musselburgh Grammar School. The whole school welcomed them into Whitecraig with lots of flags waving and cheering. Next it was our turn to take the torches to the Burgh PS. It was a beautiful day and we enjoyed the walk. We were welcomed to the Burgh by the whole school, a piper and even a choir. What a fantastic journey!

The nursery children have been learning about minibeasts. They can identify different types, where they might live and how many legs most insects have: “Beetles have six legs but spiders have eight” (Charlie). They drew, painted and made their own ‘minibeasts’ for display, some of which were very flamboyant! They learned about symmetry and enjoyed themed stories, especially ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’. They even nurtured their own caterpillars and watched them become ‘beautiful butterflies’.
The pre-school nursery children have been enjoying getting to know their classroom, the playground, the P2 children and Mrs Clarke. They also enjoyed a ‘Forest Schools’ adventure with Miss Cran. The final visit to P1 involved parents and carers and a pirate theme, they all had fun! The transition programme helps to ensure a smooth start to P1 in August. Thank you to everyone who has made this years programme such a success!
