Art & Design

Barnsley Music Education Hub website now has new features which we really hope will support schools. As well as a new Online Learning section that was developed last term, we have also been working hard to reduce the amount of printed paper resources that we use, therefore we have included the following documents online:

·         Pupil Practice Diary

·         Pupil Handbook (Lots of information about how lessons work)

·         New Starter Form (Pink Form)

Here is The link to these documents:

With Love…

Each of our uniquely designed Christmas cards were made with love and will be making their way to brighten the lives of the elderly in Barnsley via Age UK. Thank you to our wonderful children x

Bonfire Parkin!

The Badgers have really enjoyed making parkin with Mrs Whitfield! They worked as a team to read the recipe and follow the instructions to make the delicious cakes.

 

Birkwood Remembers

 
This year, we are remembering in our own, special, Birkwood way. Classes from across school created poppies in a range of different styles, and these have been attached to our school fence to bring our community together and to pay our respects to those who have given so much for our country.
 
‘We will remember them.’

Spectacular Sparklers 

The Butterflies have enjoyed learning about Bonfire Night and The Gunpowder Plot this week! They made safety posters, retold the story and created some wonderful firework pictures using bright pastels.
 

Design and Decorate

After baking delicious Gingerbread Men, the Butterflies were tasked with designing and decorating them to make them look like their favourite Superheroes. They followed their plans carefully and the final products turned out brilliantly!
 

Housewife Soup

 
During our Cook It Week, we learned how we can make use of vegetables which can be easily grown in gardens and allotments. Our ‘housewife soup’ was scrumptious – many children wanted seconds! We also made use of the peel and scraps by passing them on to Miss Greenwood for composting!
 
 

Trench Cake

 
 
The children discovered that ingredients were scarce during World War 1, so they learned about a cake recipe which could be made with a few ingredients… one being vinegar! Even though this may sound a bit peculiar, the end product was delicious!

Sketches of Joey

 
 
The Year 5/6 Tigers have been mastering their sketching techniques. Take a look at some of the excellent examples of their drawings of ‘Joey’ from the film War Horse.
 

 

Vocabulary Matters

 
 
We have been using spectacular new adjectives and nouns to label beautiful shades of colour. Cherry wood, rose smoke, bubble gum blush, flamingo rose and burnt sunset are just some of our fantastic shades.

Delicious..!

The Year 1/2 Ladybirds have enjoyed their ‘Cook it’ this week. They measured out the ingredients, mixed them together and baked some wonderful Superhero buns. They were delicious.

Caterpillar Cupcakes

It’s ‘Cook It’ week in the Year 1 Caterpillars so we have baked lots of yummy caterpillar cupcakes. We worked as a team to carefully weigh out our ingredients and we even timed them in the oven. We even made a spare for Mrs Allen to take home!
 

Owl Pancakes!

Wow! We have had such an amazing time in the Daisies making owl pancakes, inspired by our class story “Owl Babies”. The children all listened so carefully to the instructions, selected 1 and then 2 blueberries and finally enjoyed eating them ~ with extra syrup of course!

We love to bake!

Today we worked together to create our very own mud pies and tasty lasagnes! We talked to each other about what ingredients we needed to put in  and even collected them from ‘Aldi’. We put them in the oven and waited a whole 5 minutes until they were ready. They tasted delicious!
