Welcome back!

 

Hi everyone,

We hope you have had a lovely half term and enjoyed the lovely weather! Although, we are back in school this week, we will still be providing home learning, similar to that before half term, for those children who are not in school.

Over the next couple of weeks we will be working through the bubbles sheet. We will be posting videos later on in the week!

Thank you again for all of your support!

Miss Home, Mrs Hobson and Miss O'Neill

Key Worker System.

 

At Sharp Lane Primary School we continually strive for the best outcomes for our pupils both academically and emotionally. Our Key Worker system plays a vital role in connecting and tuning in with children and families at a more personal, small group level. Whilst Miss Home will have overall responsibility for the children in Carle Class, your child's Key Worker will play an essential role in caring for your child, supporting their development and developing rich relationships with families, resulting in a 'community of learners' approach. Spending daily time in our Key Worker groups supports our ethos of 'togetherness' which is embedded within our key family approach. Through this approach, we are able to become engaging companions for curious young minds, supporting their explorations and observing their discoveries. It is through this approach that we are able to observe our children flourish whilst achieving wonderful outcomes and most importantly being 'happy'.

Nursery and Reception Outdoor renovations are finished!

 

The children are very excited and can't wait to explore our new outdoor area renovations which look amazing. The staff can't wait too! We will be having a talk with the children next week about how they can explore the new equipment safely and enjoy new learning experiences. We will also be strongly encouraging the children to care for the new areas as part of their learning and journey in school. 

Children in Need.

 

Carle Class loved wearing our PJs for Children in Need and decorating biscuits. As a class we talked about how the money we had raised would make a real difference to disadvantaged children and young people around the UK. 

 

Thank you again to everyone's kind donations!

Stay and play.

 

We held our first stay and play today. The children loved spending time with their parents and showing them how we learn in reception. We also gave the parents a tour of our new playground!

 

Thank you to all the parents who came in! If you couldn't make this one, don't worry we we have more happening soon. 

Christmas Craft Morning. 

 

This morning we invited parents in for our very first craft morning. The children loved working alongside parents to make Christmas decorations. Let's just say there was glitter everywhere!

 

Thank you to all the parents who came and supported the children!

The Nativity.

 

The children have worked so hard over the past few weeks learning lines, songs and actions. They have loved learning the songs and performing for all the parents. Thank you for all your support with the outfits all the children looked brilliant. 

 

We hope you enjoyed the show as much as we did! 

Christmas Party.

Welcome back!

 

Just a few small changes term. 

 

We will now be entering through our cloakroom rather than the classroom door. This is to ensure a swift start to our morning routine. 

 

We will be starting PE this term so the children will need to have a  PE kit in school every Tuesday. They will be doing PE indoors so will need a white t-shirt and black shorts.

 

Don't forget, reading books and records need to be in school everyday so we can change books regularly.

 

This term will be learning all about Dear Zoo by Rod Campbell

Welcome to spring 2.

 

Hello everyone,

Welcome back to another term Spring 2. Hope you all had a good break!

This term the children will be exploring different occupations that we all choose to be when we grow up. If you would like to share what do you do for a job, bring in to show any uniform you have to wear, any special equipment you need to do your job or you can talk about how you help people in the community. You are welcome to come into reception if you don't mind talking to lots of reception children. So far we have a Pilot, Dental Nurse and a Builder coming in!!

 

Also happening this term:

 

Parents' Evening: Wed 4th March & Thurs 5th March

 

World Book day: Children can come to school dressed up as their favourite character and bring in their favourite book to share.

 

Sports Relief: Chidlren can come in dressed in sports gear and throughout the day children will be taking part in a number of sporting activities. 

 

In Maths we will be exploring number 8, 9 and 10. Focusing on the whole number and how many ways we can make them, addition, subtracting and doubling within these numbers.

 

In phonics we will continue to learn phase 3 sounds and tricky words.

We look forward to seeing you for parents evening and sharing your child's learning journey so far. Thank you for your support.

World Book Day.

Celebration Assembly.

 

This term we have been having an assembly every Friday to celebrate Reception’s achievements. We have four awards as well as the class teddy. Each week Freedman, Carle and Fletcher Class will have a Reader, Writer, Mathematician and Sharp Lane Hero.

This is part of the exceeding descriptor for the listening and attention Early Learning Goal. We expect children to listen attentively in a range of situations, accurately anticipating key events and respond to what they hear with relevant comments, questions or actions. Children should give their attention to what others say and respond appropriately.

Occupation visits.

 

As part of our literacy topic this term we have been learning about occupations. We have been extremely fortunate to have some visitors come into school to tell us about their jobs and what they get up to at work. 

 

First, we met Mr Poulter who is a builder. He told Recpetion that when he was at school he loved to spend his time in the construction area. He brought in some equipment which he might use at work and the children had a go at using walkie talkies and dressing up like builders. At the end, the children asked him loads of questions about his occupation and many were inspired to be builders in the future. 

 

Next, we met Amy who is a librarian at the St George's Centre in Middleton. She told us about all about the the library and what she does there. The chidlren were amazed that they could find almost any book they want at the library, it is free to join and they can get upto 20 books at a time. Amy told the children about her favourite book The Gruffalo and she then shared a book with the children. The children then had a go at being librarians. They scanned books, checked them out and sorted them.
