Today, the children working at Early Level maths had a challenge to help a struggling sports centre manager. He needed some new healthy posters, a graph to work out which sports were most popular and new tiles for the floor. The children had to find the correct money for a snack in the cafe and work out how many children could go on the playground equipment.
Primary 6 and Primary 7 have been learning the guitar this term. They have learnt how to: pluck a tune, play chords and also tune their guitar. Mrs Ross, Miss Knox and Mrs James were invited to their first ever gig!

Primary four have been learning how to create animations on the laptops using a program called ‘I can animate’. They learned how to create duplicate frames and reverse the action of their figures movements. They came up with some super stories.
All classes in the school will be involved in projects in and around the school during the last two weeks of the Easter term. Look out for the P6 and 7 pupils who will be helping to clean paths, wash dishes, hoover carpets, empty dustbins and walk dogs just to name a few of the jobs being asked of them by residents of Ormiston.
Primary 3 enjoyed a great Drama lesson from visiting Arts Specialist Shiona Davidson. The class very quickly ‘became’ Giants and soon learned some very important skills. They got the message about how to help the Giant overcome his problem.

Tranent Rotary kindly gave us lots of crocuses to plant. This was to highlight their campaign to aim to eradicate Polio in developing countries. Once a child is immunised their pinkie is dipped in purple dye.
We planted our crocus bulbs in a heart shape and they are now beginning to come through!
