The Scholastics Book Fair starts on
Monday 27th September!
We are thrilled to announce that the Scholastic Book Fair will be in school and open for business from Monday 27th September 2021. The fair will run after school from 3pm-3:30pm in the new dining hall. The book fair will be taking cash only.
We are doing things a little differently this year to avoid congestion:
Monday 27th September: Year 6
Tuesday 28th September: Year 5
Wednesday 29th September: Year 4
Thursday 30th September: Year 3
Monday 4th October: Year 2
Tuesday 5th October: Year 1
Wednesday 6th October: Reception
Thursday 7th October: Nursery
Research shows that children are five times more likely to finish a book if they have chosen it themselves, making a Scholastic Book Fair the perfect opportunity to get your child excited about reading!
Black History Month
October is Black History Month in the UK, an event that has been celebrated nationwide for more than 30 years. The month was originally founded to recognise the contributions that people of African and Caribbean backgrounds have made to the UK over many generations. We are celebrating by adding lots of new books about inspirational people to our classroom libraries!
Used Book Sale
We had a KS2 second-hand book Fair at Fairfield Road Primary School. Lots of children brought in a pound and took home a pre-loved book. All of the money raised will be used to buy new books which have been carefully selected by our teachers. Thank you to everyone who got involved!
The Masked Reader
Unfortunately, we were unable to celebrate World Book Day with our 'Dress as a WOW word' extravaganza!
Instead, Fairfield Road Primary School hosted our very own Masked Reader. Five different members of staff, recited five fantastic children's poems and pupils had to guess who was hiding behind the mask by listening to tone, expression and accent.
Our winners were Keira, Adam, Charlotte, Darcie and Fenchurch who all won a book, some sweet treats and a reading light. Amazing detective work guys!

LGBT+ Rainbow Flag Award
In order to achieve our LGBT+ Rainbow Flag Award, pupils at Fairfield Road created a book of inspirational people from the LGBT+ community. The book is full of drawings, paintings, writing and thoughts.
Here are some of the pages from our wonderful book...
International Women's Day
To mark International Women's Day, the children at Fairfield Road Primary School created a giant Wonderful Book of Women. Each class learned about an inspirational woman from around the world and how they made history and helped shape the future. The book is full of writing, art, poetry and photographs.
Marcus Rashford's Book Club
Thank you so much to Marcus Rashford's Book Club and Macmillan Books. They sent 60 free copies of A Dinosaur Ate My Sister by Pooji Puri into school for our Year 4 children. The children took their books home to add to their home libraries!
