Digital painting

Year 1 have been learning how to paint on the iPads this week. They started off by painting self-portraits using the app Doodle Buddy. They then moved onto using the app Tayasui sketches to emulate different artists such as Piet Mondrian, Wassily Kandinsky and George Seurat. They used a range of brush strokes, tools and colours to create digital masterpieces.

A visit from our governor

Mr Lister came to visit Nursery on Friday morning. He popped in to meet the children and find out about the books they love to read. It didn’t take very long before he was surrounded by boys and girls wanting to share their favourite story. Eventually, he decided to read about the adventures of ‘Supertato’ and everyone loved hearing about how their favourite superhero saved the day for all the vegetables in the supermarket.

Thanks, Mr Lister. We loved having you in our class and hope you come again soon.

Remembrance Sunday

Some of the children and staff attended the Remembrance Service at the Cenotaph in Ulverston last Sunday afternoon. This is an important service and we value being part of it. Eva Evans laid a wreath with her brother Daniel as part of the Scouts group. Tess Branton and Sophie O’Neill laid the wreath on behalf of Sir John Barrow School. Thank you to all those involved.

Fantastic running SJB

We had 2 brilliant victories in the cross country today as well as a host of 2nd and 3rd places.

We had runners taking part in their first event today. Nobody stopped and nobody gave up. We are delighted with how you raced.

A special mention to the children who ran in races with children who were older than they are. Coming 2nd and 1st in a race with older children is amazing!!

Boxes of Hope 2021

Once again a huge thank you on behalf of Year 4 for donating to the ‘Boxes of Hope’ charity, which sees shoeboxes filled with such nice things safely delivered to some of Europe’s poorest children in Romania. A very special thank you to Sophie in Year 5 for knitting an amazing number of super hats for our boxes, we really are so VERY grateful, Sophie. You are amazing. Our Year 4 pupils had a lovely time wrapping the shoeboxes and filling them with ‘goodies’ so kindly funded by the wider SJB community. Most important of all we made sure to pack lots of love in to our boxes.
