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:

Giant African Land Snails 

The Caterpillars have been lucky enough to share their classroom for a week with Rocket and Jet, the giant African land snails. After learning how to hold and care for the snails, lots of children were very brave and held our slimy friends!

Mmm, BBQ!

Our children have shown great strength and resilience this year whilst they have faced lots of challenges. As a special treat the Sunflowers and Daffodils enjoyed a yummy, scrummy BBQ and ice lolly on the field, complete with games and fun on our new swings. Look at how much they enjoyed themselves.


Washing Our Hands

The Sunflowers and Daffodils really enjoyed learning all about germs and how to wash their hands correctly. They put some ‘pretend germs’ on their hands and looked at them under a UV light box. They then washed them and looked at them again to make sure they had done a good job! Thank you to Jenny Baker from the Ward Alliance for teaching our children this important life skill so well.

An Inspirational Woman

This young lady was very interested to learn about the life, successes and struggles of the inspirational Helen Keller as part of our “Born in the USA” topic.

Pupil voice…

The Year 2 Butterflies have been thinking about all the lovely things that happened at school to help them settle when they returned. They reminisced on the fantastic times they had and then they wrote down what they thought helped them the most. Everything was then put together to make a scrapbook – doesn’t it look beautiful?

What helped us the most? 

The Caterpillars have worked together to create a special memory book to celebrate returning to school after remote learning. We used our circle times to share ‘What has helped us the most?’. Now, we have a wonderful book to keep in our classroom!

Pupil Voice

The Year 1/2 Ladybirds have been thinking about and discussing what happened in school to help them settle back in after lockdown. They shared their ideas and then wrote them down. They then created a picture to show what they thought helped the most. Well done Ladybirds – you did an excellent job!

Impacts on the Body

The Leopards have worked in pairs to recognise the impact of drugs and alcohol on the body. The children found that the brain is the most common organ to suffer from damage along with the heart, lungs and liver.

Let’s go camping! 

The children had a wonderful time at their camping experience, after planning and organising it all by themselves! They loved toasting marshmallows over the campfire, role-playing in the tent, playing games of football and using the parachute. It was lovely to share a hot chocolate at the end of the day, whilst singing songs and playing guitar. What a magical day, following our children’s interests ‘In The Moment’!

Benefits of Being Back

The Year 5/6 Tigers have been discussing the many benefits of being back in school after lockdown. We have discussed the importance of taking the time to reflect upon our mental wellbeing, as well as our physical health. The themes that were discussed included friendships, routine, teamwork and taking part in our favourite lessons once again.

Martin Luther King

We are finding out about the inspirational life of Martin Luther King Jr. Our mission: To share our thoughts on how he impacted our world, to give opinions and to reflect on the ‘power of words’. Mrs. Sutton was inspired by the children’s knowledge, understanding and compassion.

Happy, Healthy and Ready to Learn

We have made the most of a whole host of positive activities and experiences. We are well on the way to an exciting and challenging education! Here’s a selection of our thoughts and memories.


Web of Emotions

As one of our PSHCE sessions, the Badgers have discussed feelings and experiences during lockdown. One person shared their experience and held a ball of wool, if anyone else had had the same experience they raised their hand. The ball of wool was passed along, and the next person shared another experience or emotion from lockdown. We created a ‘Web of Emotions’ to show that even though we weren’t all together we were still connected by our experiences.

Team Building Day

The Foxes spent time reintegrating with each other throughout some very special team building activities. We showed caring, collaboration, creativity and communication in our problem solving as well as having lots of fun!

‘Believe in your Selfie’ Week 6

Our new set of ‘Fantastic Four’ children have had a wonderful time welcoming the start of December! We have kicked started our Christmas celebrations and already engaged in lots of Christmas magic!


‘Believe in your Selfie’ Week 4

Our new set of ‘Fantastic Four’ have had such a wonderful week full of Nursery rhyme fun. We sang Five Little Speckled Frogs in the water area, crafted our own mice for Hickory Dickory Dock, and one of our little lovelies even made a giant bus!


We feel so happy!

The Daisies have been learning all about our different emotions. Our absolute favourite feeling is happy. Look at all of our wonderful happy smiley faces – don’t we look wonderful 😊


‘Believe in your Selfie’ Week 3

We’ve had another wonderful ‘Believe in your Selfie’ week in the Daisies! Our little lovelies had been busy making spooky spells, exploring pumpkins and of course enjoying our wonderful ‘spooky’ party. Thank you to our wonderful “Fantastic Four”.
