Weekly Update 28

22 May 2023 (by admin)

Dear parents and carers,

It was an incredibly busy week last week and as we head towards the end of a half term I wonder where the time has gone!  We are busy planning Healthy Lives and Arts Week next half term, as well as the Diversity Festival which has now been scaled down slightly to a Diversity Party. 

Healthy Lives Week and Sports Day - 22nd June.


As part of our Healthy Lives week, starting on Monday 19th June, we have a number of events happening during the week. Children will bring home a passport on Monday containing challenges to do at home and ones they will complete in school. As children complete the challenges, teachers will send an email to their classes letting you know so they can be crossed off. The home challenges are optional and designed to encourage children to be active all week. On the back of the passport is an optional sponsorship form. If you would like to sponsor your child, please follow the instructions on the back of the passport and return forms to school by Friday 30th June.  


We look forward to seeing you at our Sports Day on Thursday 22nd June. 

KS2 (Years 3,4,5 & 6) will parade onto the field at 9am for a 9:10am start. They will finish at 12pm.  

KS1 (Years 1 & 2) and Foundation Stage will parade onto the field at 12:50pm for a 1pm start. They will finish at 3pm and can be collected from the field at 3:10pm.  


We are also taking an active step in a staff rounders match on Monday 19th June against St. Marys Junior School.  This will be on the school field from 4pm.  Parents and children are free to come and watch and support Team Fairfields.


There will be a healthy cake sale to raise money for Global Friends.  Any donations of cake would be much appreciated if they can be brought in on Monday 19th June. 




Diversity Party – 3rd July

We have made the decision, for this year only, to hold a Diversity Party on the school site as opposed to a larger festival.  This will focus on celebrating the diversity and culture within our school. 


We invite your families to have a table to represent their culture, country or religion on Monday 3rd July from 3pm – 4:30pm.  The table should give information about any traditions and can include food samples as long as the ingredients are displayed.  Please ensure that any food does not include nuts.  We will also have a number of performances under the canopy including our school choir. 


If you would like to take part, please let us know through the school office or email admin@fairfields.hants.sch.uk

Top Parenting Tip – Positive Parenting

All children need love, guidance and to have rules and boundaries. Rules and boundaries help families to understand how to behave towards each other, and what’s OK and not OK. But the best way to go about this will vary based on your child’s age and stage of development. All children are different and develop and reach milestones at different rates.

The NSPCC has created some leaflets in various languages to support parents at different stages of their child’s development.  Click on this link to read more: https://learning.nspcc.org.uk/research-resources/leaflets/positive-parenting


We look forward to a great final week of this half term and look forward to hearing from anyone wanting to take part in the Diversity Party.
