December 7th update


Infant Class news

This week we visited Elim Church Centre in Malton to explore their interactive nativity. We loved travelling back in time to discover what happened at the first Christmas. We met a wise man, a shepherd, Mary and Joseph on our journey as well as a very cheeky camel named Humphrey!  “Humphrey was the funniest. He was cheeky and he kept popping up and scaring me!” said Jack B. Iris said, “I really liked the bit with baby Jesus at the end,” and Fern explained “The wise man followed the star and found baby Jesus!”   











Junior class news

The year 5 and 6 aerobics at Ryedale last Friday was a great success! Not only did they win but they won with 20 marks out of 20! Congratulations! Lewis said: “When we got there we had a few minutes to practise our routine and Tilly led. Then we went into the drama studio. We watched two teams and then we were up! We did the routine to the song, ‘Rocking around the Christmas tree,’ and we had a peek at the judges scores (they kept showing us). The judges discussed the scores and when they announced us as the winner we were excited.”

We have also made Art work for the Dalby Forest winter scene competition that will be up in Dalby Forest. People can vote for the school that they think have done the best pictures. See below.

The year 6 had a great time helping out on the market selling wreaths for the PTA.










Week beginning 26th November 2018


PTA Update November 2018

Christmas stall  Sat 24th Nov - we made £456.10 profit, selling out of our wooden creatures and £69 hamper tickets.

Auction Mon 26th Nov – we are still waiting for final monies to come in, but we have made in the region of an incredible £2300!!! On top of this Barclays are giving us £1000 match funding.

So our efforts so far have raised £3756.

The PTA would like to thank everyone who has helped in any way so far and especially the donors of all our promises and the people in the local community who continue to support us so well.

Our Christmas Hamper Draw is still ongoing and so far we have sold 24 full sheets – thats £240! And we still have lots of outstanding sheets which may be lurking at home somewhere. If you can’t get them filled in that’s fine, but please bring them back to school so we can try to sell the missing squares.

Our final fundraising push this term is the Christmas stall in Towlers Arch this coming Wednesday. We would very much welcome anyone who wants to come and have a go making some wreaths on Tuesday night any time between 5.00 and 9.00pm in Fadmoor Village Hall. If you’ve never done it before it doesn’t matter there will be someone to show you what to do and we appreciate anyone who can give us an hour or two of their time. We have the rings and the ribbons etc but we need donations of greenery such as leylandii, ivy, non-prickly holly – with and without berries, variegated holly, dried orange and lime slices etc etc. If you have any secateurs please bring them with you.

If you can bring the greenery into school on Tuesday that would be excellent. There will be biscuit decorating for the children from 5.00 – 7.00pm.

If wreath making’s not your thing then we would be grateful for any home baking, preserves, crafts etc. Please bring into school on Tuesday or drop off on the stall on Wednesday morning.

Very many thanks for all your support so far.



On behalf of PTA

 Monday 25th June Whole School Sponsored Walk




Tuesday 19 June 2018 Gillamoor Children hand over big Cheque to YAA

The children in the Junior class had voted on and chosen the Yorkshire Air Ambulance as the charity that would benefit from their sponsored Daffy Walk in Farndale.  They raised an impressive £342.


Before the cheque presentation, a YAA helicopter pilot detailed to the children just how the organisation responds to an emergency or accident in remote rural areas or on roads and cities, and outlined how £4.4 million was needed per year to keep the two helicopters on constant alert.


The children learned that, on average, the Air Ambulances treat over 1300 patients a year, quickly flying nearly half directly to hospital.


After lots of questions from the children, the cheque was presented to Kevin Hutchinson, the area’s Community Fundraiser.


On a busy Daffy Walk on a perfect spring day, as well as enjoying the display of daffodils,  the Junior pupils studied Orienteering skills and were complemented on their excellent behaviour by several members of the public.




Congratulations to the Year 5/6 tennis team who won the tournament at Ryedale today. Friday 15 June 2018.

Both tennis teams will be going through to the next round. Well done.

Friday Breakfast club:

Please join us for Friday Breakfast Club which will be every Friday starting after half term, Friday 3 November. All pupils are welcome from 8.30 - 9am to enjoy a healthy and filling breakfast. (Taxi children can join in when they get here.) The menu will change each week and the children will be encouraged to suggest menus and try new breakfast time foods. The cost is £1 each week and will include breakfast and a drink. Pupils should bring their money each week to club. Bookings should be by e mail to the office or note sent in by Wednesday of each week (or booking can be made for the half term) so that we have sufficient provisions!


Deaf Awareness Week:

The 15 – 21 May was Deaf awareness week and on Friday 18 May pupils and staff wore something purple.

Over the last few months, the children have been finding out about how to communicate with deaf people.

Speak clearly and naturally. Not too slowly or too loudly.

Be sure you have their attention before you start to speak. 

Be sure to face them so they can see your mouthNever give up or say ‘I’ll tell you later.’

If using a mic be sure to turn it off if you are not speaking to the deaf person.

A Year 6 pupil, Elisabeth said, ‘ we came dressed in purple today for Deaf Awareness Week and we have been learning about how to speak to deaf people.  One of the things I learned is to always speak clearly and when you are using a microphone turn it off if you have buttons on your top as it scratches and crackles in to the deaf persons ears.’


‘It is important for us to show consideration for anyone who has a difficulty or disability. This week fitted in perfectly with our ethos of caring for others.’
