In Arctic Bears and Arctic Foxes we are learning all about Spring. As part of this topic, we have got some eggs that have begun to hatch into chicks. Watch the video below to see them hatching.
World Book Day - Fairfield Style!
As a part of our Book Week celebrations, on Friday the 17th March, we enjoyed sharing our favourite books and stories that we have written ourselves to children of a different class. We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience and are already looking forward to repeating it in the future! The top 3 books as voted for by the children were The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson, The Twits by Roald Dahl and Harry Potter by JK Rowling. What is your favourite book?
Choir Shine - Even Gary Barlow is impressed!
Looking every inch professionals in new shirts and ties, the Fairfield School choir sang like professionals too and helped make a wonderful occasion at the Children of Bury Sing concert at Bury Leisure Centre last Saturday.
The children all know that our school development target is SWERVE (Stamina; Writing; Explaining; Recalling; Vocabulary and Extending). The Children of Bury Sing event certainly hit three of these targets. The children showed great stamina with a three hour rehearsal followed by a more than two hour in concert. They had to remember twenty two songs. And they were certainly extended by two top conductors and the pressure of performing with a full orchestra of professional musicians.
In a great example of school to school collaboration, our children joined choirs from twelve other schools to sing in front of more than a thousand people. The audience stood to cheer and applaud a musical treat which was a reward for our children’s year of breakfast time rehearsals with Miss Caine and Miss Berry. Exemplary behaviour also meant that the children were a credit and to their parents and to the school.
A DVD of the occasion will soon be available but in the meantime a clip of Take That’s “Sing” was sent to Gary Barlow and he was so impressed that he tweeted “Incredible”.
Well done and thankyou to all involved (The Bury Music Service and its leader Tim Power; Choir Leaders Miss Caine and Miss Berry and on the day, Mrs Sibbald).
Next stop the Party in the Park on May 23rd and then if Gary is that impressed, Judges Houses!!
We Love Reading Gladiators!
Reading Gladiators is a special opportunity for a group of dedicated readers in Year 4. Their challenge is to read 8 novels in 8 months to become true Gladiators.
What do the children think?
Being in reading gladiators is AMAZING!!! So far the books are challenging, interesting and altogether fantastic. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity . That’s why we made a recreation of the cover!
The sun'll come out, tomorrow!
This year our production for Key Stage 2 saw Annie take to the stage. A fantastic performance by all actors, dancers and singers.
It wouldn't be Christmas at Fairfield without an extravaganza. This year was extra special with performances from each class and even a surprise song from the staff!
Diwali - Festival of Light
To celebrate Diwali this year, Key Stage 1 had a party with delicious food, dancing, dressing up and of course lights!

More Able Writers' Day with David Webb
Pupils from Year Five and Six spent a most enjoyable day developing their writing skills with the help of local author, David Webb. Using his expertise, along with a story plan and props to stir their imaginations, they were able to create their own stories.
