Wembley Stadium Trip
Year 3&4 children who have shown outstanding behaviour, sports enthusiasm and determination throughout the year were rewarded with a trip to Wembley Stadium which included a literacy work shop and stadium tour.
The pupils had an amazing time when visiting the 2nd biggest stadium in the world and discovered the history and background to the stadium, as well as learning about different events held at the stadium. During the second part of the trip, the pupils worked with a journalist (Amar Azam) and other schools from Luton on their literacy skills and learnt how literacy is strongly linked to all sports.
Year 3&4 Mixed Cricket
Farley Junior School entered the cricket competition this year with a mixed boys and girls team. Our crickets had the opportunity to compete and participate at Luton Indians Cricket Ground, with some experiencing their first sports event and transportation in our new mini bus. The Year 3&4 cricketers did really well to reach the Quarter Finals of the competition.
Year 5&6 Boys Cricket
Farley Junior School entered the boy’s cricket competition this year. Our crickets had the opportunity to compete and participate at Luton Indians Cricket Ground. The Year 5&6 boy’s cricket team did really well to reach the Quarter Finals of the competition.
Change 4 Life Festival
Pupils in Year 3&4 took part in the Change 4 Life Festival for the first time. The competition was held at the Stockwood Athletics Track where the children participated in a variety of multi-sport games. The children showed great enthusiasm throughout the competition and really enjoyed taking part in the sunny weather.
Skip Beatz Workshop:
Pupils at Farley Junior School took part in a skipping workshop held by Skip Beatz. The day started with a fantastic neon lights show by PT Denis which was followed by children participating in a skipping workshop. This has resulted in children showing a new enthusiasm for skipping and for some, a new passion.
Year 5 participated in a PE lesson which provided them with an experience of a Paralympian and working in teams. The students practiced different techniques of Paralympic sports in both archery and obstacle races. Furthermore, the pupils at Farley identified the differences between Olympic sports and Paralympic sports.
