Jurassic lark-ing at Barlby!
A SPECIAL investigation is going on at Barlby Bridge Primary School.... after some strange goings-on lately!
When children arrived in school last week they were greeted with ‘raided’ classrooms and mysterious footprints left in the playing fields.
Selby Times’ resident photographer Tony Saxton went along to see the devastation left behind by the rampaging reptiles.
The ‘visit’ of the dinosaurs was all part of tackling children’s enthusiasm and imagination according to Year 1 teacher Jo Ellis.
She said: “We wanted to inspire the children when it came to writing, and also had them designing ‘Wanted’ posters.
“This visit was just another way of getting the children interested and intrigued.”
Barlby Bridge headteacher David Barber meanwhile has reassured parents over the controversial issue of academy status.
He said: “You may notice that I have been quoted in this week’s Selby Times in response to Michael Gove’s letter to North Yorkshire County Council regarding schools and academy status.
“The article requires a small but very important correction; we are not mentioned in Mr Gove’s letter as a school requiring improvement.
“As you know we are a ‘good school with outstanding features’ in OFSTED terms. I wrote in support of our local authority and the nine schools that were mentioned.”
