Welcome to Barrow Primary School!

As head teacher here at Barrow Primary School I would like to extend a very warm welcome to everyone who accesses this school website. You may be doing this to learn a little more about the school, the staff or the curriculum. You may wish to check term dates, latest newsletters or weekly spelling lists. You may wish to have a look at our latest prospectus or the most recent Ofsted report. All of this information and so much more, including pictures  of recent events involving our pupils both in and out of school, can be located on this newly updated website which we hope you will enjoy navigating.

We are proud of the school’s many achievements, which have been the result of hard work by a very professional team of staff, and an equally determined and enthusiastic group of children.

In our recent Ofsted inspection (May 2013), we were again rated as an outstanding school. We are delighted with our continued outstanding status but we are always looking for ways to make this school even better, whether it is from the curriculum or pastoral perspective or even the actual design of the building and school grounds themselves.

Working with parents is an essential prerequisite to helping us achieve this ambition as we believe that good strong partnerships, coupled with quality teaching and learning and high expectations at all times, will undoubtedly help pupils keep safe, realise their full potentials, lead to higher levels of attainment, promote good citizenship and prepare pupils well for their secondary education. This website hopefully reflects that philosophy and commitment.

Please read the school's statement Promoting British Values, which reflects our continued commitment to keep children safe from radicalisation, extremism and online threats.

This week we have spent a lot of time carrying out research into the ancient Greeks, on Thursday we started writing a non-chronological report on them, we will be writing our best copy next week, ready for our classroom display. In maths we focused mostly on 3D shapes, on Friday we drew our own nets, then we folded them up to make a 3D shape, (it was much harder than it looked)!

In class 5, we have been learning about the Greeks and Alexander the Great. We have also been learning about the Greek gods and goddesses, there was a god of all gods and he was called Zeus, he was the god of lightning and weather. Next we learned about Greek farming and welfare, we also plan on making our own scroll. We have supported children in need by taking part in a pin the eye patch on Pudsey and dressing inside out or as a superhero.

In music we have been practising, the ballad, make You Feel My Love written by Bob Dylan and covered by Adele. We performed it in assembly and every one loved it. We are now starting to learn Christmas carols in preparation for the concert in December.
