We at the Royal Mile Primary School Nursery have been very busy this term.
We have been learning about life cycles; particularly frogs and butterflies. We had caterpillars in the nursery and had fun watching them change and grow until it was time to set them free in our garden.
We have also been talking a lot about the story of “The Grufallo!” We have learned the story almost from heart and have been acting it out with puppets. We even made “Grufallo Crumble” for snack! We used rhubarb from the nursery garden to do this. Another story we have enjoyed learning is “The Three Little Pigs”. We dressed up as the Big Bad Wolf and made our own straw houses.
We recently had our nursery sports day – it was lots of fun practicing all of the different games and races!
We have been enjoying getting out and about in our local community. We have been on walks to Dumbiedykes Park, Holyrood Pond, Tesco and even a big trip to Gorgie Farm where we got to meet lots of interesting animals!
Finally, we’ve been going on lots of visits to the “Big School” with our preschoolers in preparation for school – we will miss them very much and wish them all the best for the future!
