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:

We are Historians!

It’s 1066. Edward the Confessor is dead. There’s no heir to the throne. Harold Godwinson is declared king. Enter Harald Hardrada and William, Duke of Normandy. Let the battles of Stamford Bridge and Hastings commence.

Choo Choo! 

The Pandas had an amazing day at The National Railway Museum. We explored how trains have changed overtime and learnt a lot about the significance of Stephenson’s Rocket.

It was a great day and the children were a delight. Well done everyone!

The Butterflies went to the National Coal Mining Museum England

The Butterflies loved their trip to the National Coal Mining Museum this week. We learned about the history of coal mining and even got to go ‘down t’pit!’ for a meet-the-miner underground tour. We also enjoyed our science focussed workshop about how the Davy lamp saved lives by preventing methane gas from igniting a naked flame. What an unforgettable experience!

Life in the Victorian Mine

In our class text, Candle Dark, the characters (along with poor old Drummer the pit pony) escape, following an explosion in the mine. The Year 3 Butterflies used drama freeze frames to help infer how characters were feeling at different moments in the book. We love Reading Vipers!

Years 5 and 6 Visit Eden Camp

Our Polar Bears, Eagles and Sea Lions all had a fabulous day at Eden Camp. They enjoyed the immersive experience and the opportunity to view a wide-range of historical artefacts. They looked FANTASTIC in their outfits and gained many compliments from other visitors.

Candle Dark

We are loving our class text so much that we are looking forward to reading more books by Carole Anne Carr. We have found out some facts about our class author and have even written her a letter!
