Year 4 Mummies!

It’s ‘dead complicated’ to make a Mummy (tee-tee) but we managed. Well done Ruby on volunteering for the mummy operations table and thank you to Karolina and Maddie for such super additional models.

Year 4 Remembrance

Year 4 children researched their family histories and discovered family members who served in wars and to whom we are all very grateful. This gratitude continues today as we think of all service personnel, NHS staff and other key workers. We marked the event on 11th November, as always, at 11am with two minutes of reflective silence.

Athletics at SJB

All of our KS2 children have been taking part in an athletics event. Most of the KS2 children in the country are taking part in this competition and it’s great to be doing it with them.

All the children have tried to beat their first scores in running, throwing and jumping. Those who do beat their scores get a certificate.

Mr Maher has been asked to select the top 6 boys and girls in Y3,4,5 and 6 to take part in another national competition.

Poppies

At the going down of the sun, we will remember them.

A wreath was laid at the war memorial in Ulverston on Remembrance Sunday from the community of Sir John Barrow School as a mark of respect to all those who gave their lives during the wars.
