World Book Day: Thursday 2nd March

What a fantastic day we all had!  Our work was focusing on "The Invisible" by Tom Percival.  Yet again, it demonstrated how kind, loving and empathetic our children are.  We had a fabulous time in the library and really enjoyed reading stories with Y2B.  This will now become a monthly event.  Eshaal won our costume competition but the other children made it so hard to pick one winner!!!

Class Worship 

Today, we celebrated our talents and skills: 'For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.' Ephesians 2:10

Our Blood Experiment

We made blood today starting with the plasma.  We then added red blood cells followed by white blood cells.  We discussed what would happen if an 'invader' came into our blood.  The white blood cells were able to attack it and then reproduce themselves to make us better.

Commando Joe (Sp1 Week 5)

We had a fantastic session with Lewis this week where we tried to complete the course.  Some cones were safe whilst others were mines. The groups then worked together to try to build the tallest tower.

Thank you to all the parents who joined us for our reading afternoon.

Remembrance Day

On the 11th November, Year 6 walked to Bolton town hall for the annual remembrance of those who fought in the wars.

Chetham's School of Music

We were involved in a music project with Chetham's School of Music in Manchester. They came and worked with us over a month to produce a piece of music, we then performed it to the rest of the school. 

We then got the opportunity to visit Chetham School of Music and watch a performance. 

IWM Museum Visit

As part of our learning 'War of the Worlds' we visited the Imperial War Museum in Salford. We developed our knowledge even further on this trip. 

Poetry Day

We were involved in a whole school poetry day. We watched a live stream about poetry then created out own poems.

Science: Light

Linked to our theme in science we investigated best materials for black out blinds.

Our Winter Hill Walk

What a great start to our new school year. We had a great romp up Winter Hill chatting, bonding and enjoying the gorgeous views. 


We had an amazing turn out at the recent meet the teacher meeting-THANKYOU! 

If you were unable to go, or have forgotten some of the things we spoke about, then here is the Powerpoint that we used.



The Anderton Centre 2022

Year 6 had a fantastic time over two days at the Anderton centre.  Activities included: Raft building, low ropes, archery, tree climbing, crate stacking, Canadian canoeing and paddle boarding, 






Our theme this half term is '...And the band played on'.

“...And The Band Played On” is a thematic unit, based on the story of the Titanic, with a key focus on history.
It begins by locating the point at which the Titanic sank using Google Earth and working back from there,
learning about the ship’s communication systems, the timeline leading up to the tragedy and, finally,
deciding upon who should be held responsible for the demise of the unsinkable ship.


Last week we had a fabulous day looking at mark making.  From this we produced a sketchbook of work, which we put into an art gallery for the whole school to enjoy.  Here are some pictures of us at work. 













As part of our English focus - ghost stories- we performed the Ghostbusters dance!

Year 6 went out litter picking in the local community.

Children in need 2021

On Wednesday 24th November we put down our pens and focussed on our speaking and listening skills

As part of our theme topic and DT we built bridges using newspaper.

Y6 Matt Rotherham






We were lucky enough to be visited by the world record breaking, gold medalist Matt Rotherham who competed at this year's Tokyo Olympics!


Class 6Cl went for our annual walk up Winter Hill last week.  The weather and conditions were tough, but we persevered!


We were visited by the deputy head teacher and two ex-pupils from St. Matthews.  They told us all about how exciting life is at Sharples school and invited us for an open evening.

Looking after you.


Having good mental health helps us relax more, achieve more and enjoy our lives more. Let's be honest: 2020 has been pretty tough, and being back at school or college is not exactly a walk in the park either. That's why taking care of our mental health is so important, especially now.
