Today, Mrs. Mold's violin and cello pupils put on a small concert for us to enjoy. They played a number of pieces that were enjoyed by all.
Forget Wimbledon, forget the World cup, the most important sports event of the year took place this afternoon. Farthinghoe Sports day 2018 saw the children competing in a series of running jumping and throwing events where sport was the winner. The winning tear took home the trophy with 7500 points.
To celebrate Harry Potter's birthday, Farthinghoe School was transformed in Hogwarts for the day. Children arrived dressed in costume and the school was decorated. We had lessons in the morning including: broom design, Wand design and spell writing. In the afternoon we had a Quidditch tournament where Ravenclaw won!
Today we were treated to a rock performance and workshop from NMPAT. They demonstrated their instruments and told us how they had to work together to create a performance.
Following the performance, the workshop allowed the children to develop their own tune and vocals which were "laid down" using Garageband.
The tune will be uploaded soon.
10 junior children took part in the Chenderit cluster rounders tournament. The eight teams were split into two groups. Farthinghoe won all the group games and went through to the final against Greatworth. In a close final, Greatworth won 4 1/2 to 3 1/2 rounders. Well done to all the children who took part.
To celebrate the marriage of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex (Harry and Meghan) we held a tea party in the playground.
Year 3 and 4 were lucky enough to go to Liddington for a 3 day residential. The children took part in a range of activities from rafting to Jacob's ladder. There was plenty of food eaten and lots of wet and muddy clothes to bring back home. Thanks to Mrs. Farrell and Mrs. Holloway for giving up their time for the trip.
We (the environment ambassadors) have ordered a new bin for our fruit and vegetable waste. We are making a poster for the bin so everyone knows where to put their food waste. The bin is very noticeable due to its green flip lid. We want to do this to make our school more environmentally friendly. We hope that this will encourage more people to compost fruit and vegetables.
