Participation in Lovelight concerts has become a key part of our Christmas celebrations at Fairholme, having taken part each year since 2014.
The approach to Christmas is always a special time at Fairholme. We have continued to record events throughout the term and Christmas, of course, was no exception.
Form VII had great fun helping to prepare an online Open Day held in November. Pupils took ‘virtual’ visitors around the school, asking a range of questions to our teachers.
At Fairholme, becoming an independent learner is a priority. Form VI and VII had great fun finding out about independent learning earlier this term by interviewing staff and pupils to find out why independent learning is so important.
Nursery staff and friends have planted a lovely garden in the play area in memory of Dylan, who very sadly died during the summer break. Dylan was a popular and much loved member of The Mount Day Nursery and is much missed by staff and friends.
Not deterred by the lack of audience, our theme to culminate this term has been ‘Shakespeare’. Red group have worked on a 30-minute version of the bard’s tragedy, ‘Macbeth’, while the Blue and Yellow groups have enjoyed the comedy, ‘A Midsummer Night’
Members of the Red Group pitted their badminton skills against each other during the last week of term in a doubles tournament.
A fantastic Sports Day was had by all, this year all events filmed for online enjoyment! Children took part in a range of individual running, hurdles, cone and obstacle races alongside the high jump competition and team relay events.
Much of the term has meant, for many, more remote learning. While we had lots of fun on Zoom classes, fitness and choir, alongside creative Edmodo assignments, it was great to have everyone back in school before Easter.
It has been a pleasure to welcome Miss King, a former pupil, in the role of Sports Coach during Mr. Rees’ absence. Since returning to school, sports pitch and sports hall have been buzzing with activities.
