Hello everyone,

Another week has passed us by and he have much to be grateful for. We started off our Friday by celebrating our award winners in Key Stage 2. Well done to all of the children who achieved certificates this week.

Reading Miles

We are having a real push on reading in school at the moment. Hopefully all the children will be able to tell you about the books they are reading in class. We are delighted that so many children are reading daily at home in order to earn reading miles. Last week, we saw our first certificates handed out in assembly for the first children to reach Inverness. Even more certificates were handed out today. Let’s see if we can have a record number of children reaching Land’s End by the end of the year!

Play Leader Training

Our play leaders received some training from BFC, Football in the Community this week. There was some classroom-based theory, which was followed by some more practical training, where the children learned how to lead various games. They will be out on the playground to support the children very soon!

Harvest Collection

We continue to be blown away by your generosity! The table with donations on for harvest seems to grow by the day. It will be collected by Barnsley Food Bank on Wednesday and you can be rest assured that it will be used to create parcels for needy families in the local area. Thanks once again!

School Councillors & Eco-Warriors

All the children who want to be school councillors and eco-warriors in Key Stage 2 have had a busy week this week. They have written letters of application to for the post they want. The successful applicants will then deliver a presentation to myself, Miss Dransfield and Mrs Talbot. Good luck to all of those who have applied for the post.

Exploring the New Library

Year 3 BBRK took a trip into town on Wednesday to visit the new children’s library. They had a great time and I’m sure that some more of them will now make sure that they have library cards to make the most of this great facility. If you still haven’t been down to have a look yourself, make sure you do as soon as possible!

Speak English Cafe

Our Speak English café runs fortnightly in the school hall between 9 and 10. It is a great opportunity for those wishing to learn English or to improve their skills to come and meet others and learn the language. Absolutely everyone is welcome to these informal sessions with Mr Clayton. The next session will run on Wednesday 23rd October 2019

We hope everyone has a lovely weekend. See you all on Monday
