March 2017

10 KS2 children who auditioned at school were picked to perform at the final of X FACTOR at Darton College. All received a certificate for outstanding achievement.


Y5 entered a competition 'Hear my Voice' organised by the Barnsley Museums. They won 1st and 2nd place in the children's category. In total there were over 600 entries, they did amazingly well! The boys were presented with a £50 Amazon voucher for second prize and an Amazon Kindle for 1st prize.    The mayor (Councillor Burgess) presented them with their prizes along with Ian McMillan (Barnsley poet).

February 2017

Welcome our new KS1 music mascots......Melodie and Florien.  We will be using these signing puppets to help learn our makaton and action songs.


KS2 had their turn baking buns and cakes at homes for our Valentine themed Bakeathon. Everybody enjoyed eating a tasty treat at playtime. It was lovely to see so many of you buy plates of buns after school. Some Y5 children did an excellent job of selling them using lots of their Life Skills. We raised an amazing £340 for school fund. Thank you for your support. KS1 it's your turn to bake in March. 


Every class has received lots of new books using our Scholastic Reward Points from the Book Fair. Thank you for your support.




The choir were invited to sing at a council meeting in Barnsley Town Hall.
