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 in literacy we have been continuing our Romeo and Juliet theme and have begun to write a playscript which we will edit and improve. Our best copies will be used for a display in our classroom. We also designed the cover of our Christmas cards which will be heading off to the printers.

 wc 3.10.16 - Creativity week
This week we have been doing drama. We have been focusing on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. On Monday, we had fun reading a comic strip and started to understand the fascinating story, and watched a Disney animation of the play. On Tuesday, we read the prologue and found out the key information, and analysed the text, understanding the Shakespearian language. The rest of the week was taken up by doing drama, based around different scenes of the play, we also filmed the different scenes using Class Act.
Ssshhh! Don’t tell anyone that Class 5 will be performing the different scenes in our next family assembly.

 WC 26.09.16 

This week in literacy we have been writing a story about an adventure, the class have thought of lots of brilliant ideas. In the afternoons we have been delving deep into the Islamic religion and have started an information text about Hajj. We have just finished our science which was about light and how it shines. We can’t wait for creativity week next week, all of the class are ready to get creative!

wc 19.09.16 - Our week at school
On Monday in the afternoon we did an exciting science experiment to do with a torch shining into water, reflecting from a mirror that was underwater creating an electro-magnetic spectrum, otherwise known as the rainbow or white light. We found out that the white light goes through the water then refracts on to the mirror. Then the light off the mirror reflects on to the white card or ceiling.
On Tuesday, we did an interesting lesson on Islam. We looked at how Muslims believe very strongly about responsibility and accountability. We did a spider diagram on these two things, after that in our table groups, we discussed a drama scenario; mine and Jessica’s scenario was called The Vending Machine Accident, ours was great but everyone else’s blew Mrs Halstead’s socks off!
On Wednesday, we did Islam again but our lesson was about Haram and Halal; Haram means not allowed and Halal means allowed. Next we are going to write an information text about the pilgrimage to Mecca – Hajj.
