Fieldwork Fortnight! The Year 1 children have been working together to problem solve! They have been using their eyes very carefully to observe the Human and Physical Geographical features around our school and have been detectives to locate the original object in the magnified photograph. They have found a letter by each object and worked together to unscramble the word! 5th July 2023

Eva has taken part in a Photography Competition. She is a Young Photographer and has had her work displayed in an art gallery. Eva enjoyed sharing her photos with the class.

Badger Class have been map making in the Meadow as part of Fieldwork Fortnight! Before setting off we recapped what a good map looks like. We hope you can spot the key on our maps! - 27th June 2023

Three Little Pigs


Badger Class have been learning to retell the story of The Three Little Pigs. 20th June 2023

Elliot was super pleased to tell Badger Class about his recent family trip to Butser Ancient Farm. Elliot shared his experience with the class and really enjoyed telling the class about the ring he had chosen which was just like the rings the Romans would have worn and even had a emerald stone in it!

What a fabulous day Badger Class have had at Staunton. It was a very hot day but we managed to find shade where we could! We have learnt a little about Ferrets and even managed to stroke Simba the Ferret. We have found out about different wool and felt two different varieties. Did you know that goats have rectangular pupils, this helps them see predators coming, they can even see their own bottoms! We all found the middle of the maze, the first two groups were ever so quiet and surprised the last group when they arrived in the middle! Mrs Hawkes, Mrs Hooper and Mrs Cullen are very proud of the children for behaving so well. Thank you to the volunteers also. - 14th June 2023

Badger Class have had a super hot reward afternoon for collecting all their merits! The children brought in a teddy and had an ice lolly and biscuit to celebrate. Well done Badger Class - 12th June 2023

For World Book Day this year, each class renovated their book corner. The school council selected a winning class, which was Badgers! As a prize for their winning book corner, the PTA donated some money for children in Badger class to select new books for their book corner. Today, a selection of pupils from Badger class visited Havant town centre to pick the prizes... - 9th June 2023

The children have had a super sunny session in the meadow. There has been team work, cooking, climbing, building, decorating and eye spy games! 24th May 2023

Year 1 have been using snakes and ladders to help them work out missing number sentences! - 16th May 2023

Sherm the Germ - 15th May 2023

Year 1 have been learning about the importance of washing their hands regularly. The children have read the book, ‘Sherm the Germ’ and discussed as a class how important it is to reduce the germs on our hands by washing them often. The children completed an experiment, they had three pieces of bread and passed one of them around the circle with hands that had not been washed recently and then repeated the process with a fresh piece of bread and freshly washed hands. There was a third piece of bread as the control piece, which doesn’t have any mould on it yet!


As a class the children decided that even freshly washed hands can spread germs so it’s really important to wash our hands thoroughly a few times a day, and always after using the bathroom.


What do you think of our results?

Beep Beep Road Safety Day - Wednesday 26th April


We ran a "Beep Beep Road Safety Day" for all children at Fairfield to highlight the importance of road safety and talked to the children about staying safe on the roads and gave them basic messages about the dangers of traffic. In particular, we talked about the importance of children holding hands with a grown up when walking near roads to help keep them safe. We also talked about how to cross roads safely with a grown up. 


Children wrote postcards to their parents asking you to help keep them safe.


They are asked them to:


• always hold their hand when walking near roads


• always find a safe place to cross the road


• show them how to look out for traffic by using the Green Cross Code


• always walk on the pavement or footpath Please talk to your child about the messages on their postcard, and display their artwork proudly to show them you understand the importance of keeping them safe near roads.


Here are some examples of their learning....

BEEP BEEP Road Safety Day - Wednesday 26th April

Year 1 have been using coins in their Maths learning this week. In Badger Class, the children were talking about The King appearing on the new 50 pence pieces. Isabella very kindly brought in her family collection of 50 pence pieces including one with the new King on! Badgers Class loved looking at all the different pictures, thank you Isabella. 

Badgers have been enjoying Yoga this morning. The children have been experimenting with different yoga positions including tree, chop and block position. Ask them to show you their yoga positions, can you guess the position? 


World Book Day - Book Corner Winners! Badger Class are super proud to have won the Book Corner Competition. The children started by deciding what sort of book corner they wanted and decided on a bed time theme. Next the children set to work making a list of the things they wanted in the Book Corner. They wanted blankets, cushions, torches, a cover and enough cuddly toys for everyone to have one to read to. The children chose rainbow material together by looking at options online, Freya then suggested we used the old cover to make some clouds, we hope you can spot them! Everyone has drawn a character or a picture from their favourite book and we have stuck them around the top of the unit. There are also fairy lights hanging with the front covers up above. Badger Class have been very responsible with the torches and are looking after the new Book Corner really well. Well done Badger Class 😊

World Book Day - Wednesday 8th March 2023 - Badger Class were reading Little Red Riding Hood on Book Day. The children made baskets so they were like Little Red Riding Hood. The children also retold the story using puppets and sequenced pictures from the story.

Badgers have been learning about half! The children had to roll the dice first, look at the next shape on that line and decide if half was coloured in or not. We hope the children can tell you what half means!

Year 1 have been practising sending objects to targets. Trying to get the bean bag through the hole at the back of the chair was particularly tricky!

March 2023 - A group of Year 1 children thoroughly enjoyed a Golf Festival at Havant College. They learned how to correctly hold a golf club and how to strike a ball towards different targets. The children played seven different games and showed great team spirit!

Meadow Session 28.02.23 - Some fabulous collaboration and team work from Badger Class in the meadow. The children had to problem solve together, the Dragons were stuck and needed to get to the blue tarpaulin without touching the mud, they didn’t like to be carried and they couldn’t fly! The children had some brilliant ideas and worked together to get the dragons to the tarpaulin.

Badgers have been learning to log onto the laptops today.
