  • CHRISTMAS CELEBRATIONS Christmas at Ormesby Primary School has been a feast of fantastic performances. Four shows over three days have wowed hundreds of parents and other family members. Our Foundation Stage performed their own version of the Christmas story called ’The Higgledy Piggledy Nativity’, with brilliant songs, confident acting and great costumes. Key Stage 1 thrilled their audiences with a superstar show called ‘The Whoops A Daisy Angel’. The singing, the acting and the dancing were definitely ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ standard! Our thanks go to all the children and staff for their hard work leading up to the final performances. Without their excellent efforts, none of the Christmas productions would have taken place.

    Celebrating Christmas in St. Cuthbert’s Church

    During the second week in December, all of our children visited St. Cuthbert’s Church to celebrate Christmas through a series of readings and carols. The children sang like angels and our Year 6 readers retold the Nativity story with great confidence. Our school choir sang ‘O Holy Night’, making the service a truly memorable experience. Our children enjoy singing and it was a treat to hear them perform in such a beautiful setting. St. Cuthbert’s Church have extended a warm welcome to all families to join them over the festive period.


    In 2020 we would like to urge parents to park

    more considerately. Please don’t block drives

    or park on pavements and grass verges,

    especially on Henry Taylor Court.

    You wouldn’t like it if it happened to you,

    so don’t do it to our local residents!


    On Wednesday 4th December, 221 children, parents and staff from Ormesby Primary School went to Billingham to see the pantomime, ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarves’. Our thanks go to Mr Griffiths for organising this trip.

  • On Wednesday 11th December 100 children from Year 3 and Year 4 took part in the Tees Valley Music Service Snappy Christmas performance at Eston Sports Academy. There were over 600 children from 9 local primary schools who came together to perform 10 Christmas songs for an amassed audience of approximately 700 people. The children were accompanied by a live band, made up of the TVMS instrumental teachers. The combined sound was impressive and very professional. Well done, Year 3 & Y4, you were awesome!

    Our Year 6 children have just returned from 3 fun filled days at the Robinwood Outdoor Activity Centre in Alston, Cumbria. Although only there for three days, they managed to cram in fourteen fantastic activities (obstacle course, climbing, archery, nightline, piranha pool, zip wire, canoeing, giant swing, quest, trapeze, team challenges, dungeon of doom, crate challenge and caving). A special ‘Thank You’ goes to Mrs Beaumont, Mrs Wilmot, Mr Scurr and Mrs Carr, who gave up their own time to be with our children 24/7 for three days!

    On Tuesday 10th December we held our first ever Book Swap. This idea was a suggestion from Erin Somodi-Spence in Year 4. Children donated any unwanted books that they had at home that they didn’t read anymore. These books were then on sale for 50p each. By the end of lunchtime, all of the books had been sold. This raised £37.50 which will go towards buying new reading books for school. Our next Book Swap will be on Wednesday 5th February 2020 at playtime and lunchtime.
