Year 4’s trip to living rainforest

4R’S trip to the living rainforest


On the 25th of June, year 4 went to the living rainforest. It took us 45 minutes to get there. When we finally got there, we got into groups with teachers, and explored the living rainforest. First the tour guider told us some very important information about the rainforest. We saw a dumb cane plant, and if you eat it or touch it and put it in your mouth, your lungs and your throat will swell up really badly and you won’t be able to talk. And there was a plant called the banana plant, and the leafs rip easily so you have to be careful. Then it was lunch, it was really fun they had a big round swing, and you have to have someone push you. You go really high! And there is this ladder and you have to climb it and when you get to the top you have to climb across the bridge when you are high up in the air, and then you have to climb over to the slide, and then you got down the tall slide. Then we went back into the rainforest. And we had to bring our sketch books. We had to bring our sketch books because we had to go round the rainforest and sketch the animals. And there was monkeys called goeldis monkeys, and the mother monkey always stuck her tongue out.

 We really enjoyed our visit to the rainforest!

Mission complete!

On Monday 18th of June, year 4 experienced a theatre performance of a life time! It was all about a cat called Binky and a school girl called Olive. This story was a mixture between two winning stories. There was a competition not long ago, set by the theatre company at QMC (Proteus), to see who could write the best story with a mission and Year 4 entered. The winning story is being performed by actors from Proteus for all the schools who entered the competition – one of the winners was from a school in Basingstoke (unfortunately not Fairfields!).

Year 5 got a taste of nature

This is the old aged river.This river is in a small town called Lymington.

Year 5 went on a school trip to the the New Forest where they learnt about rivers.They waded in the rivers and found out the the flow of the river.People said that they enjoyed it and it was one of the best school trips they have been on. Also we saw wild horses and bulls.We found out that wellies and deep water do not mix! Over all, we had so much fun. A big thanks to all those teachers who helped.

People with the Paralympics and Olympic values!

Fairfields Primary School School Councillors made a vote on Wizkid so people could nominate others who show the Olympic and the Paralympic values. If a child in our school thought someone was good enough, they went on Wizkid and they could say a good comment about the person and tell everyone which Olympic or Paralympics values they show. Some of the comments we had from people are:

 “I  think Angelika in 6P because she works her hardest in every lesson and is the best friend you can ever have. She is respect full to all the teachers to and she should be really proud of her self. She is really kind and helpful to and involves her self and contributes in every thing and if someone is sad she will go to them and ask what is wrong that why I think Angelika.”

” I would have to say Lenny…
He’s respectful
Determined to do his best
Tries really well in school
never gives up.”

“I think Lenny Greenfield because he is determined to do things and is always kind.”

 Because of these super comments, we can now reveal that the winners for last half term are:

Another chick update!

We have excellent news! Our chick now has a name ……..Suzie. Jacob’s mum is the winner of the chick competition – she won this at our successful apprentice market on the 31st of May.

We have some pictures of our chick who has really grown up. We now have to put wire on the top of her container so she doesn’t escape. Don’t get too comfortable though because we have 12 more eggs and we have to wait another 3 weeks for them to hatch. Altogether we have had 18 chick eggs. Unfortunately 5 of our last eggs died. Some of our new eggs are brown and white. We will have more news for you in a couple of days.
