Remembrance Day, by Mrs Goodwin

To mark Remembrance Day, the children created beautiful poppies and took them out into the school grounds, arranged them thoughtfully into compositions that they then photographed. Willow Class are very proud of the results.
Science- Light travels in a straight line, by Mrs Nolan
Date: 6th Nov 2020 @ 3:27pm
We saw that shadows are formed when the light from a light source is blocked by a solid object. We learnt what opaque,translucent and transparent mean. We investigated which material would be best suited to make curtains for a baby's nursery.

The children painted their own poppies to take home and place in their windows.Before they went home we took the poppies into our school garden and each child thought of how to display them. We were inspired by the work of Andy Goldsworthy.
Tie Dye T shirts using beetroot from our school garden, by Mrs Nolan
Date: 23rd Sep 2020 @ 4:25pm
We harvested beetroot from our school garden , chopped it up and boiled it. We used the coloured water to dye our T shirts after we had tied lots of knots into them using string. We loved wearing them.
We took them home with a warning ......don't wash in your white wash or everything may turn PINK!
Hand wash only.
Art work for Barrow Village online, by Mrs Nolan
Date: 23rd Jul 2020 @ 3:19pm
Here you can see some of the wonderful art work the children have done over the last few weeks in school.
The paintings should have been exhibited in the Barrow Rose Show but this year will be included in the 'on line' art exhibition.
Well done to all the children.
Symmetry and tessellation, by Mrs Nolan
Date: 23rd Jul 2020 @ 3:17pm
During the last few weeks we have been looking at symmetry and pattern making in maths.
The children used a dotted grid to create their own unique design. They then thought about colour and painted with watercolour which involved real concentration!
I reduced and copied them on the photocopier. Then the children had to cut them out and arrange them in a repeated pattern. They soon discovered that other shapes were created when they assembled them.
We learnt about tessellating shapes.
Rainforest, by Mrs Nolan

It was fanatstic to work with Willow class to create a class painting/collage related to their Rainforest project. We were inspired by the French painter Henri Rousseau. You all worked so hard and showed such talent. A wonderful Barrow Team effort.
Residential at The Tattenhall Centre, by Mrs Nolan
Date: 2nd Apr 2020 @ 1:32pm
In February we were fortunate to spend 2 days with our year 3 and 4 children at the Tattenhall Centre. What a fantastic time we had!
Zip wire,low ropes course,tree climbing, willow weaving, orienteering, campfire stories, singing and of course Bingo,hot chocolate and a film. We were so impressed with the children who were brave and not afraid to try new challenges. Also the staff who were seen climbing up trees and hanging off zip wires!
On the way home we still had enough energy to visit the Ice-cream farm. Some fantastic memories.
Thank you to everyone involved in making this happen.
Helicopters, by Mrs Nolan
Date: 2nd Apr 2020 @ 1:12pm
In science we looked at helicopter design and particularly at the work of Igor Sikorsky.
We found out about Leonardo da Vinci who was drawing ideas such as the helicopter in the 1400s !
We also had a go at making some simple paper ones. We tested and trialled variations on this theme to see which ones were the most successful.

Just a few photographs to show the children making their helicopters. The painting stage was particularly messy!
When they were finished we put on an exhibition after school for everyone to see them.

Conway Centre, Anglesey, by Mrs Nolan
Date: 20th Jun 2019 @ 4:47pm
It was an absolute privilege to take our Year 5/6 class to the Conway Centre. We had two rain free days and one with a few light showers whilst at home there were floods and constant rain. Whilst there we sailed Keelboats,did the zip wire,low ropes and problem solving. We also raced dragons, did orienteering,navigated the night line,danced at the disco,toasted marshmallows and played Mrs Nolan's Bingo !
The children were impeccably well behaved. The centre staff commented on what a super group of children they were. Thank you to all who made it possible.
Well done everyone!
