World Book Day 2019


Reception and Year One Football

Well done to the children in Reception and Year one who took part in our Pyramid Sports Football Tournament.  The children worked incredibly hard as a team showing great enthusiasm.  Were delighted to say they came 2nd place, a brilliant effort.


Fairy Stories

In Class 1 we had a very busy start to the new year designing and creating Fairy Story Boxes, models to link to our topic on traditional tales.  the children enjoyed being creative, designing, making models and role-play props.  We acted out and retold some of our favourite fairy stories. 

Chinese New Year

Our Trip to Stirley Farm


Class One had a fabulous day visiting Stirley Farm and all the children were really well behaved. As the farm is right on our door step this fitted perfectly with our topic this half term ‘Farnley Fun’.

The children learnt to dig, cook and eat! They harvested vegetables and learnt how to made ‘Borscht Soup’ which originates from Russia. The children were busy digging, cleaning, chopping, cutting, cooking and cleaning whilst making their own delicious soup. We also explored the farm and its land learning more about the physical and human features in the landscape and learning how to follow directions and use a compass. A really fun day out. Thank you to all the parents and grandparents who helped to drop off and collect children at the end of the day.

Our Village walk

Class 1 enjoyed a walk around the village of Farnley Tyas. We looked at different houses and buildings in the village. We looked at how the village is changing and new things are being built. We spotted Cameron and Benjamin’s houses too!


Our reception children are settling into school really well. They are enjoying lots of outdoor play including the Mud Kitchen and Role-Play in the house. We have been doing lots of maths and number work outside too and practising our counting and number recognition.

Forest School

We all sat around a campfire during our first Forest school session. The children were very sensible and followed the rules to the letter. We retold the story of the Three Billy Goats Gruff and then made our very own trolls – learning skills such as drilling and tying knots. To round of our morning we returned to the campfire for a hot chocolate which was well received by both children and staff!
