Farsley Farfield Year 2

Join us on our learning adventures.

Another busy week…

Sunday 27th September | 3 comments

In addition to all our baking and visiting our trees, we have continued our work on place value and enjoyed problem solving using a fabulous book, called ‘One is a snail and ten is a crab!’  Ask your child what it was all about! Can they explain how we made numbers like 5,7 and 9?

The Mathletics Club started on Tuesday and we have over 30 children attending the club. If your child doesn’t attend the club, we do have a few more spaces as we work in the dining hall and can use the iPads as well as all the laptops and computers. We are delighted to have over 100 children across school, now attending Mathletics Clubs. On Friday 2F managed to get onto the Top 50 classes in the UK Leader-board and went up to number 9. This leader-board is based on the average points for the class over the week, so it requires everyone in the class to do their best, so well done to you all.

Pareen also managed to get to number 10 on the Top Students in the UK Leader-board. This board works on the children’s daily totals and not their weekly total.

Our Mathlete of the week achieved over 4,000 points and here she is proudly holding the trophy. Well done!



Spelling / Handwriting homework was sent home last week. Please support your child in learning to write numbers as words. In handwriting we have been focusing on the size of letters, particularly making sure that tall letters, like b,d,f,h,k,and l are tall and that t is slightly shorter, with it’s cross in line with other lower case letters.

Here are 2F’s Special Mentions. Everyone in class has really been working hard, but these children have been showing a Growth Mindset, by persevering and challenging themselves to work independently. Well done.

Pictures from 2C will be added very soon.

Finally, we have been working on designing a logo for Mrs Gilhooley to use on her jars of Farsley Farfield Honey. Here are some of the 2F designs. I think it’s going to be a very difficult decision, deciding on which to use!

Next week 2F go to Yorkshire Sculpture park on Wednesday and 2C go on Thursday. Much of the trip will be outdoors, so please ensure your child has good working shoes or boots and is warmly dressed. ( not school uniform ) Many thanks to the parents who have volunteered to support us on the trip. Mrs Cuthbert and I visited the park yesterday to do the final risk assessment and plan out route, so we know what an amazing time you will have…

Learning Logs are due back next Tuesday.

    What a busy week! We are so proud of Sally for becoming mathelete of the week the trophy has pride of place on our fireplace. Well done to 2F and Pareen for getting on the Mathletics leader board, what an achievement! The designs for the honey look very colourfu, it will be a hard to choose just one! Sally is throughly enjoying year 2 and is very excited for the trip next week.

      Thank you for your comments on the blog. It was a real team achievement getting on to the class leaderboard. Next week will be another wonderful week too. Well done Sally, I’m glad you have the trophy on display for all your family to see. From Mrs Fisher

    Congratulations on your Mathletics achievements, and getting into the Top 50 classes – that is really impressive! You must all work very hard at your maths. Well done! I love your label designs for your honey. Your colourful bees are magnificent! I can see that you have all included the words Farsley Farfield Honey on your labels – it’s important to know where it comes from! I bet you’re looking forward to having a taste! Do you have a hive in the school grounds, or is it close by?
