Barlow - Reception

Welcome to Barlow Class!

Miss Hardman, Miss Ebdy and Mrs Piccolo-Gardiner



Ambrose Edward Barlow (1585 – 10 September 1641) was an English Benedictine monk who is venerated as a saint in the Roman Catholic Church.  Ambrose was born at Barlow Hall, near Manchester in 1585.   In 1615, he became a member of the Order of Saint Benedict and was ordained as a priest in 1617.  After his ordination into the priesthood, Ambrose returned to Barlow Hall, before taking up residence at the home of Sir Thomas Tyldesley, Morleys Hall, Astley.  From there he secretly catered for the needs of Catholic 'parishioners', offering daily Mass and reciting his Office and Rosary for the next twenty-four years.

Barlow class invited all mums, nanas and aunties into class for a mother's day themed stay and play session. It was a great turnout and the children thoroughly enjoyed showing their parents/grandparents the fantastic learning that takes place and how the classroom works each day.


Thank you to all that came and supported Barlow class.







In Understanding the World, we conducted our own experiment to find out which drink would be best for our teeth.  We tested water, orange juice and coke.  Below is a picture of our results;




In RE, we have been thinking about how much God loves us.  The children thought of some brilliant ideas and we used Green Screen to create their chosen images.

"God loves me all of the way to London and back!"

"God loves me all of the way to the top of the giraffe's neck!"

"God loves me all of the way around the world!"
