An amazing banquet at Farfield Castle!

Friday 6th December | 5 comments


We have been learning about who lived and worked in a castle. Then we wrote facts about either a lord, lady, knight or jester. The children used some great vocabulary in their writing. In phonics we have learnt the phonemes au, ore, are and ey. Word of the week was jester.


We have been learning about 3D shapes. The children have enjoyed going on a shape hunt and finding objects which were the shape of a sphere, cuboid, pyramid and cube. We found some interesting objects around the classroom you could also go on a 3D shape hunt at home too!


The children all enjoyed designing and creating their own coat of arms ready to display at the banquet.


We had a great time preparing for the banquet. We baked gingerbread castles and created some repeating pattern bunting to decorate the banqueting hall.

We all had fun at the banquet – we danced, ate and laughed! Even Lord and Lady Farfield joined in the celebrations. A great afternoon was had by all.

The children have also been busy rehearsing the Christmas show. Thank you for all your help learning the song words at home – keep practising! The performances are on Tuesday 17th December at 2pm and Wednesday 18th December at 9.30am in the Junior Hall.

We need large cereal boxes for our art topic in January – please start saving them.

Remember next Tuesday it is Christmas jumper day and we will all be enjoying Christmas dinner together. The Christmas fair is on Wednesday.

Have a super weekend.
