Sport Relief Day

On Friday 21st March, Fairlop supported Sports Relief Day. Children and Staff paid £1 to come dressed in sporting attire! Some also bought sports relief wristbands. We will let you know soon the total amount raised.

Also on this day a film crew from Youth Sports Trust visited the school. Various activities went on throughout the morning and these included:

Football practice
Netball practice
Netball Match between Fairlop and Caterham Year 7 Team
Cricket Club
Athletics Practice
Tag Rugby training
Squash for year 5 classes
Stacking cups competition for year 3-6

Ability challenge
Dance Club

All of these activities were filmed to promote the National School Games award sponsored by Sainsbury's.  A Youth Sport Trust representative then presented Ms Brannan with a Gold Sports Award celebrating all the sports activities that go on at Fairlop.

In the afternoon Year 4 classes held their own Greek Olympics with javelin, discuss and a 'chariot race'.

The afternoon ended with a sports relief assembly.

Science Fair

On Thursday 20th March 10 children from Fairlop went to a Science Fair at Bancroft's School. We were able to take part in many experiments. We also got to look at our DNA, build paper rockets and launch them using compressed air.

One of the scientists showed us some chemical reactions including colour change, by mixing liquids, making fire and causing massive bangs by popping balloons with hydrogen and oxygen in.

We discovered that some liquids totally dissolve in a polystyrene cup, as the cup is made up of only 2% plastic, the rest is air.

A teacher showed us how to make some strange shaped bubbles.

We really enjoyed our visit and learnt a lot. We would love to go back again next year.

Forest Academy Talent Show...

Last Friday, ten girls from year five and six took part in the Forest Academy talent show. 

A wide range of talent was performed ranging from street dance to singing. From Fairlop we performed the superb song, Titanium by David Guetta, and stunned the audience with our beautiful two part harmony performance.

Near the end of this fantastic evening, our phenomenal street dancer Onome, from year four, performed an amazing routine and everyone was stunned by how good he was.

We all enjoyed this spectacular event and hope that Forest Academy hold another talent show in the future, so that we can take part.

Our singers were:
Sabrina, Maleeha, Sancia, Ria, Sapphire, Kaynat, Lacy, Samia, Isabel, and Aliyah 
Street Dance Performer: Onome
