back to school

since we’ve gone back to school everything has changed. Quite a few infants have come up to the juniors and they have been doing really well so far. We have been doing maths, literacy, swimming and P. E as usual. We have been creating new draw labels , peg labels and much more. Miss pope is amazing at teaching and were very luck to have her as teacher! She also listens to all of our ideas and thoughts she might let us keep our pencil cases . . . 🙂 A fresh year a fresh start…

Jumble Sale

On Monday the 9th May 2016 lots of people went to the jumble sale at Fadmoor Village Hall to buy some things for themselves, also lots of people dropped a lot of their old stuff there, including me. It was very fun because it had chocolate cake. Yum Yum Yum! Lots of people went home with a million bags and then came back for more . Nearly everybody who came got something . It raised £360 pounds so that’s a lot of money for school PTA funds. WELL DONE PTA.

Esme and Emilia


On Wednesday the 16th of March  2016 some of the juniors went to Edinburgh. First we went to York train station to get on the train to Waverly station in Edinburgh. We walked to the Youth Hostel and put our suit cases in a lift. Then we got a packed lunch and went to the Portrait Gallery there was many interesting paintings there, it was amazing.  After that  we went to the Real Mary Close. It was all about the plague it was really cool and I think/hope everyone enjoyed it.

Jasmine says: That Mary Kings Close was fascinating and we learnt a lot about how they dealt with the plague.

We all had an awesome day and even better night. 🙂

The next day we went to Dynamic Earth. We got in a  time machine and went back in time millions of years to the time of the big bang. We then walked through time to now a days  on the way we saw volcanoes when the earth was forming,  dinosaurs (well at least there legs) and towards the end a massive  ice burg it was epic! After lunch we watched a video called Meteorites, as you’ve probably guessed it was about meteorites. It was very interesting. Next up was the National museum there were many fastening things there my favourite room was the animal room there were lots of lively looking animals there even though they didn’t have my favourite animal it was still a good day.

Emilia says: Dynamic Earth was epic it was very interesting.

Lottie says:” The museum was really good I enjoyed the space area”.

We got back to  the youth hostel and rested our feet ,they really hurt. Today was brilliant.


Anything Goes!

On Friday 25th of January 2016 the year 5s/6s went to Ampleforth Collage to watch a musical put together by the pupils. (I think.) It was very long and the place we were in was cold but the singing and performing  was BRILLIANT!

You could see that they were very good and had practised a lot. Most of them were very clear when singing.

It was set on a boat and they all had a American accent except 1 who was meant to be the classical English character. So there costumes were very sparkly and smart. Nearly every time they came on they were wearing a different outfit.

In the interval we had yummy ice cream some one managed to get it on her eyebrow.(Not mentioning any names.)

Emilia says: It was a fantastic day and the acts were brilliant.

Esme says : that the singing was fantastic  and acting was outstanding !

It was an amazing opportunity I hope others can do it next time.

Thank you Ampleforth Collage for you performance of Anything Goes.


Kings and Queens!

This is the game!

This is the game!


Our new topic for the whole school is Kings and Queens. To learn about theses wonderful people of gory deaths. (Most of them died from someone killing them from ther own family).We have lots of enjoyment from playing the educational game called brain box. Its very intersting. We’ve also been reading about them on pieces of paper. In future dates we will pair up with the Infants and paint, pastilise or colour our chosen monarch. Also we will write fact files about them and maybe evan put on a display.We will be looking at all the monarchs since Edward the confesser.IMGA0087

Duncombe Park-the gardens

The whole school went to Duncombe Park on the 5th of November for a school trip. At Duncombe Park we went to the gardens it was very silent, the only thing that you could hear was the rain dripping on the leafs and the birds tweeting calmly.

We walked to a temple that was old and crumbeling. At the temple was IMGA0913an amazing view, it was great. There was a flowing river at the bottom and a hill of orange and green trees making there way up. We also saw a pineapple house a pineapple house is where you grow pineapples. They did this becase they were very exspensive they use to give them to friend and family to display at parties.

First Day

On the first day we had lots of fun the day had blown by so fast even faster than you think.

When it was time to go back home I wanted to stay at school and do more things like carry on with my draw design. Mr Dean told us all about new things at Gillamoor school like that p.e was on a Wednesday so when we got home we had to get are things for p.e . At the end of the day we had worship and are head teacher read us a bit about the queen wearing her crown in bed or not. And then it was the end of the day so then we all got are things and went home.

The Wind in the Willows

In school we have all been working on a display of wind in the willows for the flower festival at Kirkbymoorside Church. Mr Dean and Mrs Morbey made the base for the display. A few of the children painted it green, some covered the river in lots of blue things. The rest of us got in to groups and made all the houses like Ratty’s House, Moles Den, Toad Hall and Badgers House. Some children made the bridge and some made the characters. We all made one tree for the wild wood or more if you wanted to. If you would like to see our amazing finished display please go and see it at All Saints Church, Kirkbymoorside from 13th to 19th June.
