The Journey of our Olympic Torch

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!

On Wednesday we celebrated the work that the Primary 5 and 6 Peer Mediators have done this year to keep our playground a happy place where problems are solved by the children themselves.  Carol and Morag who trained our mediators came back to present certificates and special awards.

We also invited parents to share the celebrations and they  joined us outside for playtime to see what we have been doing with the ‘loose materials’.

Primary 1 Shared Start

Primary 1 had a fantastic morning on Thursday as we welcomed our parents in for a shared start session.  We had super fun playing some interactive maths games and sharing our learning. The parents were amazed at how confident we were in our adding. subtracting, using money and shape work.  Many thanks to all the parents, grandparents and even little brothers and sisters who came along.  We are looking forward to another session next month where the focus will be on ICT.
