The boys and girls have been very busy in the Nursery. Here are a few pictures of what they have been learning and getting up to…

Sorting the bears by colour

Today we learned about why we wear poppies. We watched some short films about poppies and learned we wear them to remember all those who went to war for us. We then made a giant Poppy wreath together to go our wall. Some children drew pictures of soldiers who fought in the war.

We made beautiful poppies to remember those who went to the wars. Using sticky plastic, tissue paper and card we created poppies for our windows. We think they look great.

Some of the children had the opportunity to explore patterns with Mrs Brewer, they did some fantastic work and showed great listening.

To celebrate bonfire night we had our own bonfire down at the woods and cooked some tasty hot dogs for snack. We discussed the dangers of fire and how to keep ourselves safe. “Don’t stand too close!” “If you touch the fire you will get burned.” – After our hot dogs we ate our yummy chocolate sparklers …

The boys and girls had great fun making glittery firework pictures. They look brilliant hanging in our classroom. ✨


🎃Happy Halloween🎃

It was wonderful to be able to host the Parent Council Halloween Disco on Friday night for the first time in 3 years.

A huge thank you to our parent council for organising, especially the lovely goody bags that they made.

We also have the best canteen staff who went the extra mile to make spooky treats for us at lunch today.


Taste Testing

On Friday 23rd September we invited our parents in to sample some of the dishes we made using the tatties we planted and harvested as part of the Dandelion Project.

The children prepared and cooked in the morning which demonstrated super organisational and cooperate skills. We then had super servers who were so polite and engaged very well with their ‘customers.’

It was also a great opportunity to ‘meet the teacher’ and be in the school. There was such a lovely buzz within the school.


New Term

We are now at the end of our second week into our new term. We are delighted to have welcomed lots of new Primary 1s and a few new Nursery children too.

The children are settling well and there is a lovely calm and productive feel within the school.

We are also delighted to welcome new staff to #Team Milton.

Here is a wee selection of what we have been up to….

Maths in P123 with Miss Rostock
The boys and girls in the nursery enjoyed exploring the obstacle course this morning and were practising their balancing skills.
This week our new P1s started to look at how to write the sounds we’ve been learning. It’s trickier than it looks!
P123 read ‘The Colour Monster’ and then created a monster based on how we were feeling.

Being active in P567


Visit from Mull Hall

We were delighted when Mull Hall asked if they could bring some residents to visit our Nursery Setting, we welcomed them with open arms.

The children sang some songs and then they went out into the garden to play. The children loved hearing stories from the past, they had a wealth of knowledge that they loved sharing with the children. We were so proud of our children as they were chatting and singing away to the residents.

We hope to welcome them back soon.


Nursery to P1 Transition

We are absolutely delighted to be able to welcome the parents back in, especially as part of our transition plans for our nursery children.

Last week, we had our whole summer picnic which was a beach theme. ‘Mairi The Cooker’ put on an amazing spread as always. We invited the parents of our new P1s to come in and join us.

Yesterday we had our Nursery Graduation, the Nursery was full with the children’s loved ones. The children did an amazing job performing the Gruffalo. Tomorrow they will be joining us in school where they will spend the day in P1.


Milton Magic Maths

At Milton we understand the importance of counting and recognise how valuable meaningful ‘counting collections’ are.

Today, we were able to welcome parents back in, they were invited to join us to see how we teach and use this concept to develop children’s numbee knowledge and understanding. There was such a buzz and it was so lovely to observe pupils and parents as the most important thing is that children talk and communicate as they count.


A Right Royal Breakfast.

How lucky were the boys and girls at Milton Primary School today? The Mercat Centre threw us a Right Royal Breakfast in honor of the Queen’s 70th Jubilee.

The children loved their treats and Nursery – Primary 3 had an impromptu dance party. I think the Queen would be dancing to Taylor Swift too…. Thank you to all the Mercat Team!


Nursery Sports 2022

It was so lovely to have parent spectators back for this years sports day. The children did brilliantly and they all had a lovely time! Well done boys and girls.
