Stars in the making

Ormiston P7’s were treated like celebrities as they headed off for the film premier of ‘Stage Fright’. The whole school waved them off as they left in convoy on Friday the 4th of May.

We look forward to hearing all about the day. Perhaps the class will let us know a little about it on the website. Please leave a comment.

Stage Fright

Primary Seven are counting the days till the 4th of May when their film is premiered at the Edinburgh Filmhouse on Lothian Road in the capital.

The film ‘Stage Fright’ was entirely scripted and produced by themselves.

Invitations for the first screening have been sent out for the 4th of May. This is to be followed by an aftershow party.


Rude Mechanicals

Staff recently had a very enthusiastic team into school to share their knowledge on how to make technology interesting for all ages using some simple and easy to use equipment. The team are coming back in May to work with all classes on the 22nd and 23rd of May. Look out for the photographs of the event.


Eggstravaganza in P6

Primary six had to decorate eggs at home this week as part of a homework challenge.  See some of the amazing designs in the pictures below.

Mrs Torley had a very difficult decision deciding on the winners!

Well done to Ceilidh for ‘bees in a flower basket’, Kathryn for ‘Scotch Egg’, Kieran for ‘Sponge Bob’ and Adam for ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’.
