Look what is happening in Year 1!

Le Tour De Farsley!!

Sunday 8th June | 16 comments

Dear Parents and Carers.

We had a fantastic end to our french themed week in Year 1. Well done to all the cyclists and scooterists in Year 1 who really impressed all the staff with their abilities – maybe we have a future Bradley Wiggins or Chris Froome at Farfield! We were also really lucky to be joined by Mrs Fensome on Friday. Lydia is an ex teacher from Farfield and she wowed us all with her Penny Farthing riding! She also brought a children sized penny with her and some of the children were excited to have a go. An exciting end to a tres bien week!

The Year 1 team.

    This looks like a tremendous day – you were lucky with the weather! It is fantastic to see Mrs Fensome back at Farfield again – she was a brilliant teacher here over 5 decades!

  2. Nicole (Katie's Mum) says:

    I think that Katie was inspired by the day because she learned to ride her bike properly on Saturday with no stabilisers!

    She was impressed with the ‘Penny’ in particular and on Friday night she was tres fatigué!

  3. Friday was an amazing day for the children Dylan is now riding his bike on his own no stabilisers at all

  4. Kerry (Graces mum) says:

    Wow! I remember Mrs Fensome bringing the penny farthing into school when I was at Farfield so it’s great that Grace has experiences this too thank you!

    I had a very enjoyable afternoon and was impressed by the way the children listened and by some of the questions they asked.

  8. Miss Renton (Rhys mum) says:

    What a great day. There was great excitement in the playground on Friday morning and it looks like you had fun all day. Rhys felt really brave climbing up high onto the penny farthing. He was shocked I had not been on one and I’m 35! Great memories for you all.

  9. Zoe Briggs (Ruby's mum) says:

    My daughter had a great day and told us all about the Penny Farthing. She drew us a picture of one at home – it looked very realistic. All the children looked like they had lots of fun and the weather was perfect for it too. félicitations! to all the children in Year 1 for a successful French/Tour de Farsley week!
