World Book Day 2017


What a fantastic day we had celebrating World Book Day. Lots of different characters attended school this year. We all had fun finding 'Where's Wally'. We also had a book swap for all children in school. Lots of books brought in to swap with others. To coincide with World Book Day, we had a visit from Westend in Schools who performed 'Undercover' for us. Our pictures show our wonderful characters brought to life. Please have a look.

Christmas at Sharneyford


Fun was had by all on our party day. Please look at our photos below.

Mayor and Mayoress visit


On Wednesday 16th November, the Mayor and Mayoress of Rossendale came to visit our school. Luke Greenwood and Sophie Kennett took them to each class where the children were allowed to ask questions. the most common questions were 'What do you do as Mayor?' and 'How did you become Mayor?' The Mayor commented on what brilliant ambassadors Sophie and Luke are and they very much enjoyed their visit which was their first visit to a primary school.

Bethany Project 2016


We have once again had a visit from the children's choir of the Bethany Project from Africa.  The children of the Bethany family were once either, orphaned, abandoned or abused and many have suffereed traumatic experiences. The Bethany Project aim is to help these children providing education where possible. October celebrates 25 years since the first 12 men visited Tanzania and started the building work for the project.  The Bethany choir first visited us in school 4 years ago and through your generous donations we managed to help contribute much needed funds to help towards the cost of building new classrooms and accommodation blocks.  The school council have organised a 'Break the Rules' day to help fundraise for the Bethany Project again this year. 2017 Bethany calendars are currently on sale at the school office for £2 each.

Top Table


A new incentive for children at lunch time is our 'top table'. This is where all the children who promote good table manners, eating with a knife and fork correctly and being polite will have the opportunity of sitting each week.

As you can see from the photo's, they will have a table supplied with a new tablecloth, place mats, a candle and champagne flute 'glasses' along with bowls and plates instead of the school trays.

Well done to Kelan, Oscar, Coco-lily and Charlie for being the first to be chosen!

Science Week


All children have taken part in science week with year 6 children supporting others in school with their investigations.

Investigations carried out included; how do animals keep warm? how do our hands move? what's in our blood? how do you get an egg into a bottle?

Please look at our photo's below of the children.

World Book Day 2016


Although slightly delayed due to the weather, we eventually managed to celebrate the 19th year of World Book Day on Tuesday 8th March.  

To tie in with our celebrations, we also had a performance of 'Jump to it' from West End Theatres.

Please see our pictures below of our celebrations.

New Play Equipment


After three days of preparing and erecting and some pretty awful weather, we are proud to announce that our new play area and stage are here!

Officially opened by our governor Miss Birch on Tuesday, 15th December, the children are looking forward to being able to use both areas.  A rota has been set up ensuring that all children get access and ensuring that it remains safe without too many children at any one time.

Although the weather was pretty awful for the opening ceremony, please see our photographs below.
