This was the final week for the Go-Givers project and year 6 had a brilliant charity event on Thursday. The children in 6W raised money for the NSPCC by designing and running a selection of stalls and singing. 6O raised money for The Dogs Trust by selling dog toys and treats. Thank you to everyone who came to support the children.

It's a hard knock life.... 6W
Year 6 celebrated the end of an exhausting test week with bacon butties and a fun filled day.
Well done 6W! A fantastic test week where everyone worked extremely hard and did their absolute best. We are all so proud of you!
Today we found out about V E day. Look at the fantastic learning logs we produced.
Year 6 have been working very hard on their maths, writing, reading and grammar this week. We are very proud of the resilience they have shown. Keep it up!
This week year 6 have really enjoyed exploring Mathletics and Reading Eggs. The children now have their passwords so they can access these at home which will really help with their revision. The children have also continued to work hard on their Go Givers project and are excited to share their findings with the school and parents.
This week Year 6 have found out lots of information about St George highlighting the truth and myths about this person. In our Computing lessons we have researched St George's Day and thought carefully about the reliability of websites and the information contained in them. During Literacy lessons we have studied a poem about a dragon and used figurative language to describe it.
Welcome back to your child's final term at Sharp Lane Primary School! This half term we will be very busy with revision for our National Curriculum Tests and preparing for our End of Year production. We will also be studying Food and Farming and hope to go on several trips linked to this during the second half of this term.
Spring Term 2015
The children enjoyed watching the eclipse this week. They attempted to see it using pinhole cameras and paper plates.
In our topic lessons this week, we looked at Maya structures and temples. We thought about resilience and how difficult it must have been to create these amazing structures. We then attempted to make out own temples using just pasta and marshmallows! What do you think?
During World Book Day, the children in 6W joined forces with 2L to read some books. They had lots of fun and really enjoyed spending time with the children from KS1. We hope to repeat this again soon.
As part of our PSHCE, we had a visitor, Simon Benn, who talked to us about positive thinking and having a positive mental attitude. We are now spectacular strawberries, awesome apples and resilient raspberries!
This week year 6 have really enjoyed creating their own music using GarageBand. We have used a classical piece of music by Mussorsky and put a modern twist on it. Look out for these amazing pieces on this page soon.
Year 6 have enjoyed settling into their new building this week and they love it. Any parents wishing to visit, please look out for details about the upcoming parents meetings all about maths. Dates and times to be confirmed soon.
Year 6 have had a very busy start to the new term. We have: made games in our computing lessons, found out about the Maya Civilisation during history lessons, researched how animals have adapted over time in science, created Mayan artwork, found out about Sikhism in RE and we have started a new project called Go Givers. Phew!
As well as this, in our English lessons we have been learning about adventure stories and have produced some fantastic descriptions of the main characters. Here are some examples:
Tremdalf, who is extremely bad tempered and frightening, is the mighty leader of the dwarf families. (Casey)
Dif is a loyal and adorable poggle who loves to go on challenging journeys with his owner Bloddon. However, he is easily distracted and can often get into mischief. (Demi)
Due to the fact that he is very caring and loving, Bloddon cannot resist spending time with his best friend Dif. Running around fields is what this adorable creature loves to do as he is madly adventurous and brave. (Harry)
Go GiversThe children in year 6 have started a project for Go Givers this term. Find out more here.
Autumn Term 2014
Look at our fantastic Christmas jumpers!
Some of the Year 6 children will be bringing Christmas to the community by carol singing at Cranmore and Raylands Community Centre on Thursday the 11th December. We have spent our singing assemblies perfecting our carols and songs. This afternoon is set to be very festive! This event will take place in the afternoon and children will return to school for the usual pick up time of 3:10. The children can wear their Christmas jumpers and hats over their school uniforms.
6W recently visited the library and selected books to bring back to school. The children really enjoyed selecting personal books and using the computers at the library. Why not visit the library and sign up - you can get up to 20 books at a time!
During anti-bullying week the children in 6W have completed work on inclusion, prejudice and bullying. I am very proud of their sensible and mature attitudes towards this work. Well done 6W!
Well done to Mollie Sowden for winning the jigsaw piece competition in 6W. The design represents how we are inclusive at Sharp Lane Primary School.
The children in 6W had lots of fun dressing up for children in need.
Beware!!! A creature has escaped in year 6! Just look at the mess it has made.
During our topic lesson, the children have been investigating what the creature could be and where it has gone! We look forward to finding out more soon.
The children in class were very excited to find out that we will be using iPads in our music lessons this half term. During these lessons, the children will be composing their own music using Garage Band. This will be linked to our new and exciting topic of 'What's in the box?'
