- I am Head of English at Fairfield High School and love working here! This is my sixth year at Fairfield and everyday continues to consolidate my opinion that we teach some of the best students in Bristol. I live locally, love cycling, cats, reading and painting. If I wasn't an English teacher in Bristol, I wouldn't mind living in Stockholm, Sweden and being an interior designer. I am also movie mad and watch at least 5 films a week. For the last three years I worked in partnership with the Watershed and lead many creative media projects for Fairfield (check out my other blog at www.mswredenfors.net).

Houses of Parliament, here we come!
The aim of the project was for students to complete a short film exploring the idea if they change, or create a new law. Year 7s being the way they are (and one of my favourite year groups) totally relished this idea and came up with a hoard of insane and some sensible ideas (one being that 13 year should be allowed to work 20 hours a week...?!). The whole process over 2 months differed greatly to that of the BBC School Report. Jam packed resources, fantastic presentations and a lovely supportive Alice made this one of the best Media projects I have ever worked on. I am keen now to embed this project into the KS3 curriculum as I think every person involved, students, teachers and other professionals, loved this project!
Perhaps my enthuasiasm paid off as one of my mad little groups has got through the finals and will be going to the Palace of Westminster to launch their idea to the judges! I also want to thank Sarah and Penny at the Orchard CLC for helping us getting these films finished (other Bristol teachers, this place is seriously under used! Book it!).
Thank you also to Alice Dyke for also, ahem, sending this great email to my head:
So, everyone can be a winner (take note BBC!)...
