Wonderful work going on around school today with our pupils learning all about Australia.
Our Year 5 class had a fabulous day at the Space Centre to support their Cornerstones topic. Thank you to the parents and carers who came along to support.
Excellent performance by Reception class this morning, thank you to all the Parent and Carers who attended the event and a special thank you to Rev’d Gower for leading the service.
It was lovely to welcome Parents and Carers into school to share some of our lovely project from this half term.
Pupils from Ormiston Meadows Academy’s Choir have had a busy week performing a medley of festive favourites, raising £114 with a performance for commuters at Peterborough Train Station.
Pupils at the school, which is sponsored by Ormiston Academies Trust, also sang for residents of Beverstone Court sheltered housing complex.
At the start of the week, the choir, led by Specialist Music Teacher Mrs McEwan, joined the residents at their Christmas gathering, providing entertainment with a collection of merry tunes. They then spent Saturday morning spreading Christmas cheer for travellers at the local train station, raising over £110 in donations over the 40-minute performance.
Ormiston Meadows Academy’s Choir is open to all pupils from Years 3-6, with the group meeting every week after school to develop their singing talents. The Choir is just one of the school’s varied selection of after school clubs and enrichment opportunities.
Mrs Moore, Principal at Ormiston Meadows Academy, said:
“We were delighted to accept the invitation from Beverstone Court to perform at their Christmas gathering, as well as Peterborough train station. Our pupils are always keen to share their talents with the local community and hope their songs helped to spread some Christmas cheer.”
Year 6 went back to the 40’s to experience life as an evacuee as part of their Cornerstone topic, A Child’s War.
Thank you to everyone in Year 2 who have shared their home learning, we have some amazing creations to bring our Towers, Tunnels and Turrets topic to life!
Year 1 enjoyed a visit to the farm to learn about money buying and selling pumpkins!
Fantastic Art work on display following the session led by visiting artist Ellie Sandall, Clare Turner and Korp.
Reception had a great day at Ferry Meadows, exploring the environment, taking place in a bug hunt and enjoying a parachute game.
Year 5 and 6 enjoyed a visit to the Science Museum in London as part of their Cornerstones topic. They had lots of fun getting hands on with the experiments!
Thank you to all the Parents and Carers who joined us this afternoon, we hope you enjoyed sharing the topics we have worked on this term.
