This Week's News

Friday 1st July

The children all seemed happy after meeting their new teachers on Wednesday morning.  There will be a couple more opportunities before we finish for the summer to spend a session with their new teacher as well.  We really feel that it helps just alleviate any nerves that the children may have about September. I have been talking to Year 6 and it sounds like their high school visits went well too!

Lunchboxes

The Young Leaders have been busy doing a project about lunchboxes recently to look at the content of them.  Ali did a super job of reporting the findings in assembly on Monday. One of the things that Young Leaders found was that a number of children felt there was too much in their lunchbox and that they had to eat it all. This resulted in them having very little time in the fresh air with their friends and having the chance to burn off some energy.  Just a couple of reminders that we are a nut free school so no nuts/nut products should be included in lunch boxes. Please do not send sweets or lollipops either.  A little lunch sized biscuit is allowed. Many thanks for your support with this.

 Animal feeding

We do love our animals at Fairfield and we greatly appreciate the help we have from our families who feed the animals on weekends and holiday periods.  It is a responsibility and commitment but if you would be interested in getting involved please let the office know and we will organise for Mrs. Rowlands (who coordinates all the animal care) to get in touch for a chat
