MYG Netball - 26th and 28th April


It’s been a full on week of netball with the Championship team competing on Tuesday and the Cup and Plate teams on Thursday.


The championship team finished the competition in 5th place with 4 wins, 4 draws and 2 losses. They scored a whopping 43 goals and conceded 29 leaving them 1 point behind 4th position. Well done to Harry J, Tom, Samuel, Rose, Nancy, Imogen A and Betsy.


The cup team had an amazing afternoon in their competition, beating Bligh and Hempstead and drawing to Horsted. 10th place was a great achievement for a tough group! Well done to Rosie, Amira, Eleanor, Ella, Rylie, Alfie and Fabian.


Mrs Byrne and I were extremely proud of the plate team throughout the whole day.  They started off as quite, timid but keen individuals who soon realised that you had to be strong and work as part of a team to outwit the opponents. As the day went on you could see their confidence and communication skills really improve. Well done to Connie W, Rose H, Megan, Tallulah, Oliver E, Sebastian and George. 

Miss Razzell climbed Ben Nevis and Snowdon


During the Easter holidays we decided to visit Wales and Scotland and intended to climb the highest mountain in each country: Snowdon in Wales and Ben Nevis in Scotland.

First, we climbed Snowdon. We were lucky with the weather on Snowdon, and managed to get up and down in four hours. Because the weather was so clear, we saw some great views of the landscape. Then, we drove from Wales to Scotland. 

Ben Nevis was a little more challenging. We needed to hire special shoes with clip on spikes to help us climb in the snow. The conditions near the top of Ben Nevis were bad as we couldn't see very much due to the foggy, snowy conditions. However, we persevered and got to the top, where it was very cold and windy. On our decent, some of the fog cleared, so we saw some beautiful views of the Highlands. 

I'm really glad I persevered and got to the top of the mountains as it felt really good when I achieved my goal. 


National Street Dance Competition


Megan Hafner Y6 and Darcey Gowland-Smith Y3, competed in the under 14's Newcomer Team Dance and came in 4th.

Milo Sturla in Y1 competed for the first time in the under 8's solo Dance. He put in such a great performance. Well done team.



MYG Tag Rugby - March 2022

The Championship Tag Rugby Team came 7th in the MYG competition on Tuesday.  A strong start in the group stages in the morning (winning 4 and drawing 2) saw us finish in 2nd place. With a harder afternoon in store in the Super 8's we knew we would have our work cut out. Unfortunately, with 1 win and 2 loses it took us back down the table to 7th place.  A few amazing tries by Nancy and Dylan P and great passing and tagging from William, Tom L, Scarlett, Zac, Freya, Tayla, Samuel and Harry showed that we worked brilliantly as a team. Well done everyone. Thank you to Mr Lewis for coaching the team.


We were back over to Medway Rugby Club on Thursday for the second time in a week with the Plate team.  The team started fantastically with two wins against Bligh (5-1) and Wayfield (2-0) but the snow, wind and hail came and the tournament was cancelled! What a shame for Harry J, Alfie, Alex M, Zachary, Jamie, Rosie, Melisa, Betsy and Amy.  Let's hope the festival is rearranged for term 6.  Thank you to the supporting parents for buying the children hot chocolates and giving them extra layers and hand warmers - your kindness was much appreciated.

Medway Schools Cross Country League - Race 2 - Tuesday 8th March


The second race in the Medway Schools Cross Country competition happened on Tuesday at The Howard School. Despite being a few runners down due to injury and illness our team still managed a fantastic performance.

Individual glory to Nancy and Will, who won the girls and boys races. Combined with excellent running from everyone meant that we achieved 1st place in the boys team event and 4th in the girls. A thrilling run from Samuel, Sonny and Max H saw our boys also cross the line in 3rd, 4th and 5th respectively.

10 Year R children went to Greenacre School for a balance bike festival.They took part in a number of individual and team races including, an obstacle race, a cyclobalance race and a baladrome race. Some of the races were like a mini biathlon, where the children had to ride and then run with their bikes.  Practice of the transition at school, from riding to running, meant our children were much quicker than the other schools.

Outstanding team performances meant our team finished 1st!! Bringing a ‘piece of gold!’ back to school. We were very very proud of the children today.

Well done to George, Rufus, Harry W, Franky, Layton, Imogen S, Ellie, Amala, Evie and Madeline.

Year 3 and 4 Tri-Golf Festival - our first event since Covid.


It was such a lovely feeling this morning when 12, year 3 and 4 children, took part in a Tri-Golf festival at the Howard School. We were all very excited to be competing against other schools in the 7 set stations. Everyone putted, chipped and cheered their way around the course, with the biggest cheer coming when we found out that we had won the ‘fair play award’. Well done to Eddie, Haiden, Henry, Imogen C, Tiana, Darcey, Ellis, Stanley, Imogen W, Emily, Fraser and James.


'At tri-golf we played lots of different games and one of the activities was called Bullseye. It is where you have a putter and you have to get the ball in the middle for 3 points.  We did a few more games, had a snack and then played a few more. The other game I liked was aiming at a number on the wall.  If you hit that number that is how many points you score. When we had finished we were awarded the fair play award.  We got a certificate and bag.  Wow'.

Results from our ‘Bike to School’ week.


What a fantastic response to our bike to school week.  Even on Friday when we had heavy rain, people were still riding to school.  It was lovely to see so many bikes locked up to the fence and in the bike shed.


Some families commented on feeling good after their ride in the mornings and that they felt fitter after a weeks' worth of exercise.


Well done to all the children and adults involved and thank you for your support.  Let's hope this has encouraged and enthused people to continue riding.


The number of rides has been collated and the results are...


4th place - Phoenix - with 37 rides during the week 

3rd place - Ocelot - 58 rides

2nd place - Victory - 82 rides

Luke (Year 5 Ravens) - Athletics

On Sunday 26th January I travelled to Ashford Stour Centre to take part in an under 11s Kent trials, for Indoor Athletics Decathlon. We had many good competitive opponents and around 100 boys and girls were there.

We were split into groups to do the events and I had boys from Kent, Ashford and Tonbridge Athletics clubs against me.  The competition was very tough but I enjoyed it.

My favourite event was the Triple Jump. The events tested my running, jumping and throwing. Some of the events were javelin, vertical jump, balance test, 10x10m shuttle run, standing long jump, speed bounce, Hi-stepper and chest push.

I am still waiting for the results to find what place I came in the Decathlon.


Well done Luke for representing Fairview and for being so committed to your sport.

Oliver R - Cross Country

Report by Oliver (Year 3).

I decided to take part in the cross country run with the school which was going to be a challenge for me as I don't find running easy.  So over the last few weeks I have been doing lots of training with my Dad and he has helped me to go a bit further and a bit faster each time.  I decided to give myself something to aim for, I would try and raise some money for Children in Need by taking part in this run.  I am a lucky boy and I have a nice home and lovely family but I know not everyone is as lucky as me, which makes me sad.  I thought if I could raise a bit of money it would help to put a smile on their faces too. The challenge was hard for me but I feel proud that I completed it with lots of my friends, but most of all I am really pleased that I beat my target of £100 and in total raised £245 for the charity.


Oliver, this is a fabulous achievement!! Well done.  £245 is a fantastic amount of money to raise for charity.  You should be very proud of yourself for completing the race and in a good time.


Kent Schools Cross Country Championships - Saturday 23rd November

We were very proud of all the children on Saturday at the Kent Schools Cross Country Championships. It was very wet, muddy and cold but every child completed the course and never gave up!

Well done to  Esta, Eva, Mimi, Sophie, Dexter, Isaac, Oliver P, Olly and Toby who represented Fairview in the 49 school competition. The children performed admirably and were great ambassadors for the school. In an extremely difficult group they achieved a record of 3 wins, 3 draws and 2 loses (both by the closest of 1-0 margins), scoring 14 goals and only conceding 6, the highlight being a 5-1 win against a strong Cliffe Woods team. These excellent results saw Fairview place 10th, narrowly missing out on qualification for the Medway 'Night of Champions' 


PTFA Thank You.

The PE staff and children would like to thank the PTFA for their kind generosity in supplying us with 15 team rain jackets - 12 for the children and 3 for staff.  The children looked super smart at the MYG competition this week and I know all the children were proud to be wearing them.  Thank you.

Year 3/4 Tri-Golf Festival - 3rd October

Our Tri-Golf team participated in the first Tri Golf festival of the year on Thursday, they did fantastically well and came 11th overall.

Report by Teddy:

On Thursday I took place in the Tri-Golf Festival at the Howard School. We got to compete against other schools in Medway.

My favourite part was chipping the ball over the bench and into the bucket.

Everyone tried their best throughout the morning.

I really enjoyed going to the Tri-Golf after school after school club and learning different skills about golf.

Mrs Sheppard - Run Disney Experience - October 2019

Thank you Fairview Mile -  part 3

 Just last month I was lucky enough to go on my 3rd  run Disney weekend at Disneyland Paris, where, along with my husband, I enjoyed taking part in their Friday night 5k, the Saturday morning 10k, and the Sunday morning half marathon (21k). What a privilege to run through the theme parks (and for the half marathon also into the local community) with about 9,000 runners in each race.


3 years ago when the Fairview Mile was introduced I was a reluctant participant, who along with many in my class, needed to run/walk  the mile until I gradually built up my stamina to be able to run the whole mile. I then discovered I enjoyed running, joined the local parkrun … and kept running.  This year training didn’t go as smoothly as I’d hoped, but working through injuries to complete the 3 races and the 36k Challenge left me with a greater sense of achievement, as I’d experienced bad times as well as good times.


Thank you again Fairview Mile for helping me to become fitter and healthier; and for the new memories I made that weekend.

Mrs Sheppard 


Mrs Sheppard, you are a superstar!!
