Fairlands are taking part in a new, fun, real-life walking and cycling game. Every child in the school can earn points and win prizes by tapping special tokens onto sensors known as Beat Boxes as they travel around.
The Beat Boxes will be placed on lamp posts around our local area and will be activated on 3 June 2013.
Tapping more than one box activates your journey and records how far you have travelled, more boxes tapped = more points scored.
There is a website www.herts.beatthestreet.me that records each participant’s total distanceand various prizes up for grabs.
Be sure to look out for the letter and fobs that will be issued at the beginning of next term.
Thank you to everyone who came to school dressed in yellow on Friday 1st May in support of Global Development Day. We raised a very impressive sum of £409 which we have donated to charity called ‘Contact a family’. You can find out more about the charity's work at www.cafamily.org.uk
We have had an amazing day, participating in the Comic Relief Dance Off 2015!
We had a special message from Louis Spence at the start of the day! Take a look here! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mRc54wdkyic
We have been dancing non-stop in the hall and have enjoyed great whole-school assemblies to end the day. Take a look at our blogs to see what we have been up to!
And we have raised an amazing £888! :)
