At Barnby Road, we are committed to providing a broad and balanced curriculum so that children develop the skills and attributes they need to succeed in life. Have a look to see what we got up to in the Spring Term.
Children in Year 6 took part in 'Rock Challenge', an exciting combination of dance, story-telling, music and drama. The children did a great job and progressed to the National Finals, which take place in June. Take a look at these amazing photos of the event!
Enriching English- to enrich our English curriculum, children experience a range of visitors. This term, we had a visit from successful author James Nicol, who talked to us about how he writes his books and the history of witches. Children were also visited by Spark Arts, who performed parts of Shakespeare's Macbeth. What an inspirational day!
Take a look at some pictures of our Mayan masks project
In Febraury, we visited world-famous cricket ground Trent Bridge. We learnt about the history of cricket and looked at many of places in the world which play this amazing games, and we also visited the library and listened to a world-renowned cricketing academic talk about the Sport. In the afternoon, we played a game. It was lots of fun!
Children in Year 6 have been learning about the Ancient Mayans. We found out about the tradition of Mayan Masks, and then designed and made our own masks. The finished products show an amazing level of skill and children should feel really proud of what they have achieved.
