Whole School

 

As we are a small school we encourage a strong family ethos.  We live our Christian values in everything we do.  We love going on trips, having visitors in school or just themed days organised by the teachers; everyone gets involved.  Have a look around to see what has been going on in and around the school. 

 

Red Nose Day

What a fabulous effort made by all our 'Bake Off' competitors.  We saw Storm Trooper cup-cakes, pirate buns, chocolate jelly-tot cakes, red nose pop-sticks and wonderfully iced red nose cakes.  We had a fantastic turn out by both parents and children to the sale; thank you for all your support. 

We started our 'Red Nose Day' fundraising by having a 'Wacky Hair Day'.  The children created some masterpieces, along with the teachers.  

Farnley's has got talent!

Look at all these talented children who took part in this afternoon's talent show.  Well done everyone you kept us entertained all afternoon.  We had joke telling, dancing, singing, spoon playing, impressions, musical and poetry recitals.  

 

 

 

World Book Day

What a super effort made by all the children this morning!  Children participated in an assembly parade to show off their incredible outfits.  Throughout the day they are enjoying a whole range of Julia Donaldson 'Book Day' inspired activities.  Can you spot which characters the children have dressed up as?

 

Children have been incredibly busy learning how to stay safe in our

'Health and Safety' Week.  We had a range of visitors in school to teach the children key skills to keep healthy and safe.

Take a look at some of the work they have produced.

        

 

Federation Tea Party

Greenhills First Federation celebrated its first birthday.  Guests and School Councils from Thurstonland, Farnley and Denby met to speak about their individual school.  A shared piece of art work from across the three schools was revealed by Mrs Kitchen. 

 

 

The whole school took part in our Christmas production.  There were a lot of lines to learn! But we managed and it was fantastic.

 

 

During Diwali Miss Perkins cooked a wonderful 'Diwali-inspired' lunch.  The children also tasted some amazing food of samosa and bhaji - cooked freshly by a very kind grandparent!  Other activities went on throughout the day.

 

Our Whole school trip to Butterfly World

Class 2 travelled to London to sing in the Mighty Sky Music for Youth Concert, at the Royal Albert Hall. The Mighty Sky choirs and Orchestra featured musicians from across the country.   

The children were lucky to be invited to sing at the Royal Albert Hall and they took the role very seriously.  All were enthusiastic and keen to perform as well as they could and from a parent watching, the performance was amazing.  Thoroughly enjoyable and a real credit to the work and effort that has been put in both the teachers and pupils, a very big well done.

Mrs Alison Holt

 

Thank you so much for organising such a wonderful event for both us and our children.  It was an amazing event that has created everlasting happy memories that we are able to share with our children.  To perform at such an iconic venue was just brilliant and all your hard work, including getting us there safely is very much appreciated. 

Thank you,

Mrs C Bullas 

 

 

The sun was shining when we all went on a trip to Scarborough's Sea-life centre.

 

Class 1 visited Hope Bank Art Studios and created some fabulous pieces of work based on the work of Barbara Hepworth.
