Farsley Farfield Year 2

Join us on our learning adventures.

Next term! Learning about life in the 1960s and 1970s.

Saturday 21st December | 2 comments

Next term we begin with a fascinating topic about life in the 1960s and 1970s. We will also be looking at how life has changed since then and will be particularly interested in memories of Farsley and the school. The North Building opened in 1968, it would be wonderful if we could talk to someone who came to our school when it first opened and ask them all about their experiences.

If you visit friends and family over the festive break please try to find out some information about these decades. Can you find any old photos, or articles to share with the class?

Did you know that the first channel to ever be broadcast in colour was BBC2, and it was shown in colour in 1967. Coronation Street started in 1960! A loaf of bread cost 1shilling, the equivalent to 5p and a season ticket to Manchester United cost £8.50!

Ask your family and friends about the music they listened to, the clothes they wore and the games they enjoyed playing. You will be amazed and fascinated!

    Thank you Mr Pickering for posting this comment on our blog. We are excited to see that we now have the Lithuanian flag on the Flag Counter on our blog. We have been learning lots about the 60s and 70s and will be posting about them soon. Thanks from all Team 2F 🙂

    Hello 2F this sounds really interesting! I’m sure things have changed a lot since the 60’s and 70’s I wonder what you’ll find is most different?

    Colm’s Dad (currently in Lithuania with work, I hope you get a new flag!)
