Here at Fairfield Primary School, we aim to ensure that children leave our school having experienced a wealth of opportunities and culturally enriching activities. Our residential package provides children with the opportunity to experience life in modern Britain by visiting many of our country's main cities (including London) as well as providing outward bound adventures so the children can experience new and exciting activities in the natural environment. Many aspects of our residentials link to our bespoke curriculum and help us to further promote fundamental British Values. 

Year 2: Bassenfell Manor

Our wonderful Year 2 children have the opportunity to enjoy a fantastic residential at Bassenfell Manor Christian Centre in the Spring Term. The children enjoy taking part in activities, including: Orienteering, Bush Craft, Stackers, Tree Climbing, Archery, and special Team Building tasks! 

The children make lots of very special memories together on their very first residential adventure.
