Scratch Day


Pupils from P5 and P7 led an event today to share Scratch with other pupils in the school and with parents.


This was part of an international Scratch Day with 234 Scratch Day events planned in 53 countries, including Argentina, Nigeria, and Vietnam and of course Ormiston Primary School. Our event was one of two in Scotland, and we shared it on the Scratch site here.



P5 Camp

7.20am We’re all just starting to get up and ready for our first full day at camp.
Yesterday, once we’d made our beds, we had a tour around Dukeshouse. “Cool, awesome,” and, “brilliant,” were some of the words used to describe the activities we saw.
After dinner we all went into the sports hall to do indoor climbing and everyone had a go, then we did a fire drill before our next activity – Scrapheap Challenge.
We were all so excited, it took us a while to get to sleep but the girls are raring to go this morning.

Thursday night – it’s been non stop all day. We split into two groups and have done loads of activities today.
Nightline, archery, team challenge, 3G swing, zip-wire, environmental art and camp fire. We’ve got so much to rell you all when we get back to Ormiston.

See you tomorrow.

Our new eco greenhouse

Last year’s eco team thought of building a greenhouse. The eco team wanted to use a eco friendly way to make it. We needed 2400 2 litre plastic bottles to make the greenhouse. We asked Ormiston Grows to help us build it. We are very pleased that the green house is finished and look forward to growing lots of vegetables. The eco team would just like to say a very big thankyou to everybody that helped us to collect the bottles.

Diamond Jubilee Garden Party

Primary 5/6 organized a Diamond Jubilee Garden Party. Our group was in charge of  the invitations. We had to make sure that the invitations got to the right teachers and classes in the school. We also had to take the tables out and decorate them. We also served the strawberries and ice cream.

Diamond Jubilee Garden Party

Doesn't this look good?
We had to organize a Diamond Jubilee Party for the whole school. We were the food group. We had to give everyone strawberries and ice cream. We had lots of fun in the process.Our Diamond Jubilee Garden Party was great. We think everyone had a  great time.The only downside was that we had to tidy it all up afterwards.

Our job was to go to the co-op and transport the food to the school.We also had to cut all the strawberries in half and dish them into bowls.We had a helping hand from Mrs.Adams, Maggie and Elaine.

So we would like to say thank you for all your help .

Yours Sincerely

Lia,Thea,Zoe,Logan and Morgan .A.K.A The food group.

Diamond jubilee garden party

Doesn't this look good?
On the 1st of June we had a party to celebrate the Queens Diamond Jubilee. Our group were the tables group. We had to look for spoons ,bowls and table cloths. Also we had to carry out tables and chairs into the playground.We counted out 300 spoons instead of 258, just in case. The tables looked really nice with the union jack napkin and the red, white and blue napkins. Well, that’s all we have time for!

Dancing to the music

On the 1st of June 2012, Ormiston Primary School celebrated the Diamond Jubilee by having a garden party. Primary 5/6 got split into groups to help plan the party.
