This is such a busy time of year: we have rehearsals and performances for our Christmas shows, end of term assessments, school evaluations, lots of trips, sporting fixtures and events such as the Farsley Lights Parade. It was great to see so many Farfield families supporting the parade again and special thanks go to Robin Dalton, the Craft and Youth Clubs and school staff that made such wonderful willow lanterns for us to hold – they looked great and were surprisingly robust! I am hoping that these can become a tradition for the parade.
This week 6T went to the City Museum (by No. 72 bus) and learnt about WW1 and local aspects of this such as the ‘Barnbrow lasses’. The class were commended for their exemplary behaviour by the teacher of another school party there (whose children appeared less ‘focussed’). Year 1 had a visit to Thwaite Mills and Year 4 have been to St John’s Church as well as a big DT project building their own musical instruments. Next week seems even busier and includes Non Uniform Day/Christmas Jumper Day on Tuesday (in return for donations for the Christmas Fair) and the Fair itself on Wednesday. Let’s hope for a successful fair as the PTA funds so many of the most exciting and enjoyable aspects of our offer to families.
