We’ve had lots of children volunteering their time to raise money for charity, learning new skills, improving at sports, helping with chores, finding ways to be greener and trying new, healthy foods.
It’s lovely to see the variety of things they have all done outside of school and to be able to share their achievements with their friends and families.
Many children are half way through their challenge booklets. Keep up the good work and we’ll be proud to present you with your awards next year.
Congratulations to all of this year’s recipients and watch out for them in school with their shiny new badges on their sweatshirts.
After the torrential rain we had in Ormiston on Friday, our annual family walk and picnic was looking doubtful for a second year but thankfully it had dried up enough by Tuesday for us to brave the muddy footpaths of the Winton Estate.
The weather was kind to us and stayed fair all day. In all we had around 150 children plus staff, parents, grandparents and friends join us for the walk through the woods to Pencaitland, and a picnic and games in the park.
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.
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 .

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!

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. The groups were: Music and games, decorations, tables, invitations and food. Our group was the music and games group. We made a CD with all the songs that everyone likes, and everyone loved it. We played some games including: pin the crown on the queen and prince, prince, queen(like duck duck goose).The party was really good and everyone loved the music and they were all up dancing!
The Diamond Jubilee Garden Party was hard because it was hard to find good deals for the decorations but in the end we found everything we needed.Once we had put all the decorations and balloons up in the playgroundlooked great and we are pretty sure everyone enjoyed themselves.
