Archery Competition 

We were so excited to have the CSET sports coaches back in school. They ran an archery competition for us which we loved! All children from reception to year 6 were determine to score points for their house. We saw lots of resilience, teamwork and encouragement from all the classes. A big well done to Lyra who were the overall winners! 

If you were an engineer, what would you do? 

A huge well done to all 198 entries across St Barnabas who received their certificates from the engineering inventions competition. Every child was graded at least a pass with 18 children receiving a merit grade and 3 children receiving a distinction. The 3 children who received a distinction have also been shortlisted. This means their designs will be on show in the exhibition and they have a chance of having their designs made! 

The Great Science Share

St Barnabas took part in the Great Science Share – a global day dedicated to raising the profile of science. The children took part in a range of different scientific enquiry linked to their projects and enjoyed showing their parents through Dojo. 

British Science Week

As we welcomed all the children back to school on March 8th, we took the perfect opportunity to celebrate with British Science Week. The theme this year was ‘Innovating the Future’ and ‘Smashing Stereotypes’. 

Every child from nursery to year 6 became engineers for the week and entered the National Leaders Award competition: ‘If you were an engineer, what would you do?’ We also set up many scientific enquiries including rocket explosions, lava lamps and growing crystals.

Harvest Service

We held a very successful Harvest service at the church last week where all of our children shared either a song or poem focusing on our responsibilities at this time of year. This was all very confidently led by our wonderful Year 6 children . Can we take this opportunity to say thank you to all of our families who contributed to our harvest food collection—we managed to fill Mrs Serle’s car boot with the donations which were taken to the foodbank in Kingswood on Friday and was very gratefully received by the organisers. It is great to think that we have helped a little within our local community.

Sporting Success

Throughout the term we have had the joy of participating in a range of sporting activities within school and have also been able to take part in some additional competitive sporting events beyond the school day; theses included football matches and a target festival at Mangotsfield Secondary school. We have been very impressed with the positivity, team spirit and support shown by our sporting people in each event and have been proud of the way that the school has been represented.
A huge well done in particular to our target Festival team from Y2 who were the overall winners having competed in a range of skills against ten other schools!

STEM Awards

A huge congratulations to two of our amazing Y6 learners who were recognised at the recent South Gloucestershire STEM awards for their amazing learning in the summer term. They attended a very inspiring presentation evening earlier this month where they were given the opportunity to explore Concord before receiving their certificates.
