Discovering Victorian Farsley

Friday 16th October | 4 comments

Do you recognise any of these buildings?

This week, we started to think about what Farsley was like in the Victorian times when Florence Nightingale was alive.

First we looked at modern maps to see what Farsley is like today. We used tracing paper to draw on the main roads and significant places. We then looked at a map of Farsley from 1894. By placing our tracing paper on top, we could see what Farsley was like in Victorian times.

We then went on a walk around Farsley. We had some old photos of Farsley and stood in the same spots to look for similarities and differences. We used our 1894 maps to find them.

There was one building from the pictures at the top of the blog that we didn’t spot. Does anyone know which this building is?


This week we have been writing instructions for making a healthy sandwich. We learned all about imperative (bossy) verbs and showed that we could choose a precise ‘right choice’ verb when giving instructions both verbal and in writing. Ask your child what happened when they said, ‘Put the butter on the bread’!


In maths this week we have continued to use our number bond knowledge to make links.

We have been learning about fact families. We have used bar models and part whole models to find all the different addition and subtraction sentences.

Can you make a fact family to match this part whole model?

Here is a link to a fact families lesson on BBC Bitesize if you would like some more practise! https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zkd98xs

Learning Log

Year 2 Learning Log Homework – 16th October 2020

Over the past week, we have been learning how to use our number bonds in different ways.  Once you know your number bonds to 10, it can help you with lots of other addition and subtraction facts – including pairs of numbers which make up different multiples of 10 and even 100!

For learning log, we would like you to show us everything you know about number bonds.

To be handed in Monday 2nd November 2020.

    Frederike has told me that you saw the Olivet Chapel – you really did walk ‘ALL around Farsley!’ The missing building is the farm buildings from Cote Farm which is now the Farfield Junior building 🙂 Great learning! I didn’t know this.

      Well done Frederike for remembering that Cote Farm used to be where school is now. We didn’t walk up Stanningley Road – it was the old Wesleyan Chapel on Farsley Town Street.

    is the missing building the Olivet Chapel up on Stanningly road?
