Welcome Back !
I have worked out that this is my 26th year of September returns to school and in all honesty I can't remember a more exciting start back to school, with the "Tour of Britain" passing the end of Barnacre Road. The children and my colleagues, in true Barnacre tradition, entered into the spirit of the event. We built a huge bicycle on our playing field and proceeded to the end of the road, where our Year 6 class provided a Samba Band to accompany the riders as they went past. Our younger children waved flags, twirled umbrellas and greatly added to the party atmosphere. A great start to the year!

New netball kits.|

Lego Mindstorms Assembly|
Well done to our Year 5 and 6 "roboteers" who entertained us with their dancing robots for a Golden Book Assembly on the morning of Friday 22nd May. After many weeks of hard work, making the robots, programming them and practising, it went well! A few arms dropped off, but all in all, it was great fun. The rest of the school then had the chance to program "the Robot". They had to think carefully about the commands they gave him, and wondered why sometimes he didn't seem to listen! We learnt that robot commands need to be very precise to work. Thank you to Mrs. Green, headteacher of Longridge High School and the parents for coming in to support us.
Our Wonderful Woodland|
Key Stage 1 and Foundation spent a great day at our woodland site, near Green Bank Quarry, on Thursday. The site changes and develops greatly between each visit, allowing the chldren of our school super experiences.
This visit saw the children taking part in a wide range of activites, ranging from wand making to scavenger hunts!
We were very lucky with the weather and hope that Key Stage 2 will enjoy their visit in June as much as we did!
