As we approach the end of the year, it’s time to think about our ‘best bits’ from this crazy academic year!
- what your friends have done for/with you that made you smile or laugh
- what your teachers have done that has made you smile/laugh or been good
- any other bits that stand out for you

This week in maths, we have really focused our attention onto problem solving and using a technique known as the bar model to help us solve complex problems including a 2012 GCSE maths paper.
2012 Higher GCSE Paper:
Ralph posts 40 letters, some of which are first class, and some are second.
He posts four times as many second class letters as first.
How many of each class of letter does he post?
The children learned how to use two or more bars in different ways to solve complex multi-step problems.

On Wednesday morning, the stars of Farfield shone brightly! Every member of year 6 demonstrated why they are going to be missed by this school. This was the best performance they’d done of Goodbye My Friend and left the audience wanting more. Every child should be proud of the confident way that they owned the stage in their scene.

This afternoon, 6T enjoyed an afternoon tea of homemade scones, victoria sponges and obviously tea. The children chatted nicely and reflected on the great year we’ve had.
It’s been a great year!

I’m sure your child has already spoken to you about his/her costume for the Leavers’ Show. If they have not finished gathering together what they need, we would appreciate it if you could help them with this over the weekend so all costumes are ready for Tuesday morning when we perform our show for the Foundation Stage and Key Stage One children.
On Wednesday evening (19th July), Year 6 children should arrive at school at 6:30pm. They will change into their costumes in their own classrooms (or come wearing them if it is school uniform or PE kit) and then meet in 6CH to get ready for the show.
Parents may arrive with their children at this time and find a seat in the hall ready for a 7:00pm start.
Reminder: Children who are attending Priesthorpe have an additional Transition Day on Monday 17th July. Children should make their own way to high school. They should not attend Farfield on that day.

This term in RE Year 6 have been working on a topic about how Christians express their beliefs. We looked at a variety of Christian buildings and values and explored the idea of whether a church is a building or a community. The children learned about acts of worship such as baptism, Holy Communion and prayer became familiar with the Bible and how to find particular stories in there. Through stories and role play, they explored the theme of forgiveness and looked at some real life
