Music a big part of life at Harrowbarrow, but it’s hard to use instruments and sing at school in the normal way we would, at the moment.

Please use objects or recycling equipment that you have to spare to design and make an instrument that you can play at home. It could be a percussion instrument, or perhaps you could find a way to play notes on it? There are various ways you could use to join the parts: glue, knots, elastic, papier mache. You can also decorate to make it look wonderful, maybe with a Christmas theme?

Please email Mr Watts with a photo of your finished musical instrument by Friday, 11th December. Happy playing!

Your child has now received an Accelerated reader login if they do not have one already. Accelerated reader is an online scheme that allows both parents and teachers to see how well a child understands a book and how well they are reading it. It is also a really fun way for children to become motivated by reading by adding achievable goals and rewards. For the next few years at Harrowbarrow, your child will use Accelerated Reading to help progress their reading.

Below is the correct link to enable your child to access quizzes from home:

If they have forgotten their login details: The username is the 1st letter of their first name and the first 4 letters of their second name. Regarding their password they hopefully have remembered however if they have not please do email me so that I can confirm.

In addition to this, if you have books at home that your child has been reading and want to know if they are on Accelerated Reader scheme and therefore have a quiz available for them, you can search for them using this link:


This page will be regularly updated to provide information that may help however if there are any questions in the meantime, please do not hesitate to ask.
