Headteacher blog 17 July
We are rapidly approaching the end of term and what a busy week it has been! All the children received their end of term reports and Year 6 got their SATs results. As a group, they have done very well and we are proud of their achievements. We were also extremely proud of Year 6 on Tuesday evening when we were hugely entertained by their fantastic leavers’ show: A Blast from the Past. Academic performance is obviously important, but so is confidence and being able to work hard as a team to put on such a great show. Well done!
On Monday, 2F had an enjoyable day at the Co-op Farm in Goole and on Tuesday 4GK spent a day in Horton-in-Ribblesdale as part of their geography curriculum. We perhaps take all these trips for granted now, but the quantity and quality of the educational visits that the school provides is quite exceptional and we are proud of this element of the school’s curriculum. On Wednesday, we welcomed lots and lots of parents to join children in years 2 and 3 for their ‘Transition Picnic’ and on Thursday we had a very successful Sports Day across the school – particular thanks to Miss Hutchinson and Mr Cooke for leading this. Throughout the week, it has been great to see the grounds being so well used, and so many children have been up to the farm harvesting or just picking a strawberry to enjoy. Farm Club went on a trip on Monday evening to replenish our flock and we have welcomed 11 new chickens to Farfield Farm – I don’t think they will look so bright white and fluffy for long!
Finally, could I thank all the staff, children, volunteers and governors for their hard work, support and good humour all year. 2014-15 has been another successful year for Farfield and we hope everyone has a fabulous summer. All those leaving us this year – Year 6 pupils, one or two children moving home and staff moving on – we wish you the very best of luck for the future.
