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 most 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 click here to read our schools aims & values.

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

In literacy we have been learning about the active and passive voice. We have also begun reading Treasure Island as our class novel and we are writing a letter to persuade the Publisher to keep the   book in print. In Science we have been learning about how animals adapted to their environment, also we have been looking at plants and how they survive in cold and hot environments.

We are all really excited to be back in school and can’t wait to start lessons properly!

In the playground outside we spent our time getting to know the new receptions. We think they are a great addition to Barrow school! When we went inside, we met the lovely Mrs Mabbott, we think she is a brilliant head teacher and we hope she is settling in very well. After that we were put into places on our tables. It was a bit confusing but we soon got used to it! We have lots of fun in our class because we read funny poems like the Jabberwocky. We have also been doing assessments in literacy and maths. On Friday we tried a Street Dance taster session – they are going to be running a club at Barrow school. The whole class had a lot of fun learning all of the moves!

We have had a really amazing first week at school!

This week we have been filming and editing the Year 6 leaver’s video with Mrs Farnsworth. The soundtrack of the video is See You Again. Monday to Wednesday we filmed in our own clothes and the rest of the week we edited and brought our work to presentation form.

This week we have been rehearsing the play called GEL – it’s going well. Also, we have started our new topic in history. We are learning about Mesopotamia. Linked to this, we studied cuneiform writing and then designed our own tablets using clay. We wrote on them our own message. We are looking forward to learning more about the ancient city of Baghdad next week.

This week it was SATS and all of our class have been working really hard; because of this we all got sweets, lots of playing out in the sun and free time to relax. Mrs Halstead and Mrs Miller have been super encouraging and helpful whilst doing the tests. This week we have also been given our scripts for the end of summer production, we are extremely excited because we are doing Gel!

This week in class5 we have been doing our art. We have been trying to design our own landscapes by bringing in our own photographs of a variety of natural scenes. Next, we blended various colours to give us an idea of what colours we wanted in our final artwork. After this, we decided to practise painting a tree to see how our blended colours go together.
