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 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. My door is always open so please feel free to contact me about any of the detail on the site which I hope meets all of your needs.

This week has been CREATIVITY WEEK!!! In class 5 our topic was Russia. We have been making Russian teacakes and Faberge eggs. We have also been researching about Russians original flag, space exploration and how they sent a dog into space to see if it was safe for humans.  We have all enjoyed learning about Carl Faberge and that inspired us to make our own gold or silver eggs.

This week has been very exciting, as we have been making puppets. Recently we have been studying the story of Rama and Sita, we have crossed our RE topic with Art and have made our puppets based on characters in the story. We have learnt many skills to do this including various sewing stitches and after many attempts we mastered the different styles such as: Cross stitch, back stitch and overstitch.
We now feel confident that we will be able to do more things like this in the future.

In class 5 we have been doing lots of drama work. We have been working on using our voices for each character to make the listener amused. We’ve been doing some amazing facial expressions and actions which made our role play intriguing and exciting. In R.E we have started learning about the Ramayana which is the story of Rama and Sita. Next week we will be making our own puppets based on one of the characters.
