Ormi’s Got Talent!

We were all treated to fantastic perfomances on Thursday as pupils showed us just how talented they are at our end of year talent show.  We had dancers, singers, footballers, clappers, recorders, pianists, magicians and a hula-hooper!

Our winners were a group from P7 who sang and danced to Heaven.  They’re pictured here with some of the runners up.


 Well done to everyone who took part.

P1 mini-beasts

Chloe’s mum came into school to help us make some mini-beasts.  We then went outside and found some bits and pieces to make the bugs some homes.

Here are some photos of our transient art pictures.

Watch out for the creepy crawlies in our assembly at the end of the week!

Cross Country Team

On Thursday 1st May, the East Lothian cross country competition took place at Hallhill, Dunbar.  Ormiston had a strong team and we all made it through the very muddy course, finishing 2nd overall in the small schools’ races.

Congratulations to Aaron who came 2nd in the boys race and to Kirsty who finished 3rd in the girls race.

Primary 1 Art

P1 have been learning about the art of Kandinsky.  We looked at his picture called Squares with Concentric Circles, then each of us drew a circle picture and we put them all together.

A Visit from Crunchy the Crocodile

Josephine our dental health support worker brought Crunchy the crocodile into the nursery for a visit.  We all had a turn at brushing Crunchy’s teeth and Josephine read us a nice story.  We all received a lovely present of a new toothbrush and toothpaste.  Here are some photographs of the visit.

Goodbye and Good Luck

On Thursday 20th December, pupils, staff and parents said goodbye to our departing Headteacher, Anne Torley at our end of term service in Ormiston Parish Church.  Mrs Torley who has been Headteacher for 5 years was presented with cards and gifts including a CD that each class had recorded farewell messages on.

We’ll miss her and everyone wishes Mrs Torley well at her new school in Prestonpans.
