Fairfield Infant School

Everyone is valued and learning is fun

Fairfield Infant School Birthday

Friday 27th January is our school’s 128th Birthday. In  order to celebrate, the children will be taking part in a range of Victorian activities to find out a little more about what life would have been like for the first pupils of  Fairfield. This will be as follows:


Year R – Victorian playground games and toys
Year 1 – Victorian food
Year 2 – Victorian school day


Our aim is for these themes to stay the same each year so that, as children move through the school, they build a little more on their knowledge of life during the Victorian times and the history of our school.


As part of the day, we would like for all children to come dressed in clothes appropriate to the Victorian era. We understand, however, that costumes can be costly especially if only worn once! We hope that the ideas below will give you some ways to provide an inexpensive costume for your child that you could create from existing clothing items you have at home.


If you are unable to provide a costume for your child, we would ask that they wear dark trousers/skirts and a white top or shirt as this will help them dress in keeping with the Victorian theme. Please do see your child’s class teacher if you have any problems or queries regarding this.
