Some February Photos

We’ve had a busy month in Ormiston with lots of learning going on in school and out. Here are a few photos of some of the things we’ve been up to. If you want to find out more of our latest news, check out our Twitter feed @OrmistonPrimary .

Pizza making at Ormiston Grows

P2/3 had fun this afternoon making pizzas with some of the vegetables from the Ormiston Grows garden. Some of us were even brave enough to taste the ones with spinach and spring onions on them! Whilst the pizzas were cooking, we made some bird feeders using Cherios.
Thanks to Claire, Liz and Tim who helped us and showed us around.

Look who’s started big school!

It’s lovely to welcome back all of our pupils at the start of our new school year and to hear all of the stories of what they’ve been up to over the holidays.
For last year’s nursery children, it’s been the first few days in their new school uniforms.
Check out these photographs of how grown up they look!

Summer Run

We’ll be taking to the railway path on Friday morning when the P3 – P7s will be running in our 2km and 3km summer races.
We’re looking for marshalls and supporters so please come to cheer the children on, anywhere along the route from the Howden Bridge to the end of Hillview Road.
The run will start at 9:30am, from George Crescent, with the 3k runners going up and over the bridge and the 2km runners taking a right onto the old railway at the Howden.
