Farnley Tyas C of E First School

Our Global Neighbours

Members of our Vision and Values Council held a meeting to discuss fundraising in school and how we can support organisations who need our help. It was decided at the meeting that School Council would run a ‘Break the Rules Day’ to raise money for the Emley Education Centre in Kenya in order to fund a child to go to school. We were able to raise £250 and this pays for the education of one child, their school uniform and a daily school lunch for a full year. 

Our Local Partnerships

A Christmas Journey

Year 2 enjoyed a morning at Almondbury Methodist Church where they went on a journey around Bethlehem. They met Mary who was making bread when she was visited by the Angel Gabriel who told her that she was to have a very special baby who she was to name Jesus. They then went onto the hillside where they met some very sleepy shepherds who sent them to the stable The animals were sharing their home with some very special visitors. A Wise Man told the children about the gifts that he and his companions had brought to give to the baby.  The children had a lovely morning.

St Lucius' Church

The church community, including Reverend Felicity invited the whole school to church and take part in a 'Christingle' session. The children worked in their 'Buddies' and created their own Christingle to take home.
