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 class 5 has been inventing their own products and devising a sales pitch. They are really good and it has been fun. Year 6 have got their brand new leavers jumpers with all their names on the back – they are awesome! In Geography we have been learning about North America and creating travel broachers. Finally, in P.E. we have started doing cricket and it is great fun!!

On Monday, we started our D.T. - CONTROLLABLE VEHICLES. We started our planning and making our chassis - it was very hard. But we are looking forward to completing them and taking part in our wacky race. In literacy we started our planning for our non-chronological about an animal of our choice, for example: Black Widow Spider or a Mountain Lion. In P.E. we have been doing hockey and have played lots of matches, it was great fun! Finally, we had our Easter egg hunt and each took hope an egg. We hope you have a lovely Easter break.

This week, in literacy, we started to plan and write a non-chronological report about animals. In RE we learnt about forgiveness, and the story of the lost son from the New Testament. We acted out what had happened using a human IPad. On Thursday, we started our DT topic on controllable vehicles. We sketched a toy car and labelled all the different parts. Friday was sports relief. All of school dressed in sporty clothes and donated £1 each. We played different games to do with sports. It was great fun.

Creativity Week – Banksy
This week (with Mrs Farnsworth) we have been learning about an amazing graffiti artist called Banksy. We started our topic by looking at some of his previous work of which we found inspiration from. This helped us immensely  when making our own stencils. Some of us customized some of Banksy’s work and others created whole new designs.
