Rock Bottom! (KS2 production 2019)
The children from key stage 2 put on an amazing performance of the musical 'Rock Bottom' at the Ace Centre on 9th and 10th July. The show was full of amazing dancing, singing and groan inducing jokes. The show was a great hit with all the parents and friends who attended on both nights and the children should be very proud of how they performed. Here is a selection of highlights from the show.
Sports Day 2019
Another beautiful day for St Thomas' sports day with lots of organised activities to suit all. A day for celebration, lots of fun was had and races were run. We enjoyed showing off our skills with a range of events and worked within a team. It was fantastic to see the teamwork on display and the positive and encouraging attitudes of the Year 5/6 children from each team were a real credit. The individual races were fiercely competitive, especially the parents races! Well done to all who took part and achieved their very best.
On Sunday 5th May, many of our Year 6 pupils were confirmed in a very special service led by the Bishop of Burnley, Bishop Philip at St Thomas' church, Barrowford. During the service, Bishop Philip laid his hands on the children's heads and asked God’s Holy Spirit to give them the strength and commitment to live God’s way for the rest of their lives.
We were so happy to see our wonderful Y6 children affirming the promises made for them during baptism and committing their lives to following Jesus Christ. The church was extremely full of friends and family, as well as the local Christian community, who all promised to support and pray for the children.
Confirm, O Lord, your servant with your Holy Spirit.
Barrowford Treasure Trail
10 of our Y5 pupils were involved in creating a Treasure Trail of Barrowford Village alongside pupils from Barrowford Primary School. To begin with, our Y5 pupils visited Downham Village to trial a Treasure Trail which has already been written. They then visited Barrowford Village on a few occasions alongside our staff to plan a Treasure Trail for our own town. The Treasure Trail has now been completed and is available in school and in Barrowford's Tourist information. Well done to all!
