Year 6 Residential - The Camp Hill Estate

What an awesome time! For 3 days following on from SATs the children in Year 6 took part in the most amazing residential to Camp Hill Estate, Bedale. Whether they were high wall climbing, low rope course, foot golf or segway, the children made lots of wonderful memories.

Eden Camp

Classes 4/5J, 5/6S and 6O all enjoyed a trip to Eden Camp. We focused our learning around WW2, looking at the causes and effects of the war. The children had a wonderful day and will now be able to use their experience to forward their learning throughout their theme lessons.

Macmillan's Biggest Coffee Morning - 25 September 2015

Gilberdyke Primary School took part in the World’s Greatest Coffee Morning and helped to raise vital funds for Macmillan Cancer Support. Children, staff and parents showed their support for the annual event by baking cakes, buns and various goodies to raise a magnificent sum of £350.

This is the third year that Gilberdyke Primary School has participated and once again a fantastic amount of money has been raised. A huge thank you goes to Miss Crossmore for organising the event and thanks to all those involved for giving up their time and sharing their baking talents contributing to a very successful event.

We also raised £50 on our book stall to be spent on Literacy resources across the school.
