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 Mrs Hobson will have overall responsibility for the children in Freedman 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'.

Please help Reception!


Now the weather is changing can you please provide your child with a full set of spare clothes, which includes t-shirts, jumpers/cardigans, trousers/skirts/dresses, socks/tights, underwear as well as a change of footwear such as wellies or pumps.

This will ensure your child can explore our outdoor area in all weathers and will build their natural curiosity as well as stay dry and comfortable for the rest of the day at school.

It would be greatly appreciated, if you have any spare clothes that you would like to donate to us. At the moment we are low on spare underwear, tights and socks.

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. 


Please view the photos below.

Stay and Play

It was so lovely that our parents where able to come to 'Stay and Play' this afternoon. The children enjoyed showing them around the provision and the new outdoor area! Thank you for coming along.

Reception Christmas performance

The Nativity

I am so proud of our children as you are of your own children for participating in the christmas performance. They loved being up on stage, there was excellent singing and well done to the children with speaking parts for remembering their lines and being brave in front of an audience. A fantastic performance!

Spring term 1

Welcome to the spring term and what a term we are having so far. We are achieving so much in our learning. We have been focusing on number 6, finding different ways to make 6 and comparing numbers in maths. Our book this term is 'Dear Zoo' which the children are enjoying retelling and they have been using adjectives to describe the different animals. The children have been exploring their 5 senses as part of 'Understanding of the World'. The children were very good supporting each other moving around the garden whilst blindfolded!!

Also we have had a Read and Play session where we read 'The Hungry Caterpillar', story and made butterflies. Next week we will be celebrating 'Chinese New Year' with various activities like making a dragon to do a dance and cooking chinese food.

Please view our photos below of our journey so far.

Thank you.
