YEAR 2 VISIT SPACE CENTRE
Year 2 had a fantastic time at The National Space Centre. They made their own rockets and launched them to see if they could land on the moon! The class was impeccably behaved and with the support of our wonderful helpers, managed to climb a staggering 144 steps to the top of the space bubble. The class also had an opportunity to watch a film in Sir Patrick Moore's planetarium. The children are continuing to enjoy this very, exciting topic and look forward to their class assembly.
WORLD BOOK DAY
World Book Day was on Thursday 7th March. As usual the children were invited to dress up as their favourite book character. In morning assembly each class walked around the hall to showcase their wonderful costumes. They all looked absolutely amazing! It was a really lovely day with lots of exciting activities.
WONDERFUL RAIN FOREST ASSEMBLY
What a start to the day on Thursday 7th February! Class 4/5 wowed us with a magnificent assembly all about the Rain Forest. They sang songs, told us some amazing facts and performed a short play. They used beautiful, loud voices and most importantly enjoyed performing to their parents/ carers and the rest of the school.
Best wishes from Staff and Pupils.

SCHOOL GETS SUPPORT TO IMPROVE ITS TRAVEL PLAN
Pupils and staff at Barford St. Peter’s Church of England Primary School were celebrating recently when a new bike rack was installed to improve the storage facilities for children cycling to school.
The school received a grant from Warwickshire County Council to actively promote cycling to school and to endorse safer and greener travel as part of the travel plan. Barford have also introduced a system where parents and children sign up for a “cycle permit” administered by staff.
The project was generously supported by Morrison Construction part of the Galliford Try group who provided both materials and labour enabling the school to have these new cycle racks installed.
Head teacher Mrs Annette Delaney said, "We are extremely pleased that our children can be encouraged to use their bikes safely on the way to and from school. As a village school it is extremely important that we encourage safe and healthy forms of travelling. These superb facilities will help to keep the children’s bikes secure when they are in school. It would not have been possible without the support from WCC and Morrison Construction. We have already started to put the racks to good use”.
