To celebrate Children’s Mental Health Week, 2B created a class assembly highlighting who supports them! You can find it in the link below:

White Rose Maths

Each maths lesson comes with a short video showing you clearly and simply how to help your child to complete the activity successfully.





Here is our timetable:

We like to plan lots of enrichment opportunities – here is what we have planned so far – this is a working document and will be updated throughout the year.


Things to Remember


Home Learning & self isolation

If your child is displaying symptoms of COVID 19, please keep them at home until a PCR test has been completed and please contact school, immediately.

If you are unsure whether this applies to you, stay at home and contact school, we will best advise you.

Parents, please remember that it is your responsibility to keep up with your child’s education whilst they are isolating – your child class teacher will email you with all remote learning details

Reading at Fairburn View Primary School

Phonics: Your child will learn to read following the ‘Sounds Write’ Programme. This programme is designed to support the rigorous and systematic approach to teaching synthetic phonics.  Our caring teaching staff plan exciting lessons to meet the needs of all individual children.


There is a focus on reading across school and there is huge benefits to children reading at home. As part of school policy, we ask for children to read at least 3x at home and this is signed by a parent. You can help your children by hearing them read, but also checking their comprehension. Ask the questions about what they have just read, what they think will happen next and explain what they think of the books they are reading. It is important for children to read a range of texts as this makes them well rounded excellent readers.

Inside school, children have a daily guided reading session in which they have opportunity to have adult based and independent reading activities.

We appreciate your help and support in the matter.


Parent Partnerships

We welcome any opportunities for parents to share their skills and knowledge.
Please listen to your child read at home every day and record this in your child’s planner.

Thank you for your support.
