The children in Year 6 had a fantastic morning with the engineering company, Leonardo.
After being split into teams, the children had the opportunity to construct towers using marshmallows and spaghetti - the tallest tower, which measured 75cm, won the challenge! To encourage team work even more, the children were challenged to design a model car which would move by itself using a balloon. The children loved this challenge and came up with some fantastic models. They had a race to decide the winner and I believe the winning car is actually still going!! Overall an inventive morning with our fantastic Year 6s.
The children in year 6 enjoyed a day learning about different careers. They took part in several activities such as: job Top Trumps, pictionary and speed dating. They asked several fantastic questions; they behaved impeccably and were able to reflect at the end of the day.
Tring Museum and College Lakes
The children in Year 6 enjoyed two trips today as a treat for all the hard-work they put in towards their SATs. First, we took a tour around Tring Natural History Museum where the children enjoyed looking at facts about the different animals there and even spending some time sketching them.
After lunch, we all boarded the coaches again and visited the beautiful bird sanctuary at College Lakes. We split off into smaller groups and visited the different bird hides around the lakes. Luckily the weather had cleared up by this time and the children were able to walk the whole way around the lake taking in the sights as they went.
The staff from the Natural History Museum and College Lakes praised our children for their fantastic manners and consideration towards others during the trip.
Well done Year 6, we are very proud of you.

On Friday 24th March 30 year 6 students went to the Carnival Arts Centre in Luton to watch a jazz concert hosted by Arts Council England. The concert was amazing! Schools from Luton played tributes to great jazz giants like; Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie, Mongo Santamaria, Thelonious Monk, Todd Dameron and the infamous Buddy Rich.
60 students from Luton schools wowed the audience with their fabulous voices and incredible musical instrument ability. It was a great experience for Farley children to be part of this inspirational gala concert and all the children, and staff, enjoyed it immensely.
We are incredibly lucky to have such a diverse range of opportunities for our children to share.
