Summer News

Friday 6th May

Ensuring that the children have a love of reading is one of our absolute passions at Fairfield.  The ability to read just unlocks a whole world.  So staff were working hard yesterday receiving training on our new phonics scheme that we will be using fully from September.
It is called Super Sonic Phonic Friends.   Supersonic Phonic Friends Have a look at their website to see what it is all about!   EYFS have already trialled it and the children are loving it!

Young Leaders

Our Young Leaders did a super piece of work together to promote recycling at school before Easter.  The posters promoting it are now displayed around school and the amount of recycling at lunchtimes has increased.  Their next initiative is to focus on Healthy Eating, especially packed lunches.  They will be doing some research into the content of the packed lunches that are being brought to school and comparing them to nutritional values within school meals.     Watch this space for updates!
