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

The Foxes joined in with the Big Bubble Singalong with McFly on Radio Sheffield for Children In Need.They loved creating their own music video to the Happiness song around school! They have even uploaded it to the ‘Make A Difference’ website and hope to appear on the BBC!
The Foxes learned about Remembrance Sunday with poetry, drama and art.
The Badgers have been learning about onomatopoeia. We have used a Bonfire Night theme to help us come up with lots of onomatopoeic words and then we created some pop art cards.
We used oil painting techniques to create depth in our work. Poppies were the focus of much of our learning last week, ahead of Remembrance Sunday.
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.’
Mrs Allen led our virtual Remembrance Assembly this week in preparation for Sunday. The children were all very respectful within their own classrooms and there was a very solemn mood throughout school. Look out for our special tribute outside school.
We played musical bumps, musical statues, pass the parcel and of course ate lots of party food. Thank you Mrs Allen for our wonderful party and to our families for the amazing outfits.
All our Daisies were invited to our very special ‘goodbye’ Teaddy Bears’ Picnic. We remembered all the special times we have shared together and celebrated every special, unique child. We even played ‘pin the heart on the teddy bear’. We will miss you x
We enjoyed learning about the Jewish festival of Hanukkah.
We talked about how knowledge linked to faith and religion helps our understanding and tolerance of the beliefs of others. We valued time examining the Torah scroll, a beautiful and extremely important part of the Jewish faith.
The Foxes really enjoyed their trip to see Father David at St John’s Parish Church this week. He told us all about The Easter Story and let us look around our village’s beautiful church.
