Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!

Hello! I am Mrs Cashin and I teach Year 6 at Fairmeadows. 


Fairmeadows is a community-centred school where the children are encouraged to support each other and voice their own opinions. In Year 6, we seek to build independence by providing children with the opportunity to take on different responsibilities whilst also encouraging them to become confident and resilient individuals who are ready to face the road ahead.


Within our classroom, we work as a team where everyone is respected and treated with kindness. In our learning, curiosity is paramount to striving further and, as is a core belief at Fairmeadows, we do not tell children what to think, but only ask that they do think.


Working with us this year will be Mrs Garner and Mrs LeQuelenec and we are all excited to get started!


Key Information

  • Please bring your child's labelled book bag into school every day.
  • Please bring a named water bottle. This must contain only water.
  • Please only wear stud earrings at school and on PE days it helps if the children do not wear them.
  • Come to school in PE kit on Monday and Friday each week. 
  • Please communicate with the office using Parent Mail and contact Mrs Garner, Mrs LeQuelenec or I through Seesaw.





Reading - Children should read at least three times a week and bring their reading books daily. This is the most important way you can support your child with learning at home. Evidence of reading should be uploaded to Seesaw and added to the reading at home file. Please send a message if you get stuck!  


Time Tables - Those children who are not confident with their times tables will take home a times table booklet to complete each night, for 5 minutes, and will be marked together in school the following morning. Times tables are the corner stone of the Year 6 curriculum and so it is imperative that children are confident in this area.


Mathletics - Each week we will award a Mathletics champion in the class for the child with the most points that week. Children who do not have times table homework are expected to achieve a minimum of 1,000 points.


Learning Powers 

Our learning powers run throughout school and underpin the core values we work to and hope to develop in the children. 


The Learning Powers are: 


  1. Enjoy Learning 
  2. Have A Go
  3. Concentrate
  4. Keep trying
  5. Be Cooperative
  6. Use Your Imagination
  7. Be Curious
  8. Keep Improving


These Powers underpin our curriculum aims and develop growth mindset. They also provide our children with the right start preparing for life outside beyond Fairmeadows.


Forest Schools

Forest School is an inspirational process that offers all learners regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in our very own woodland and natural environment. In Year 6, children's Forest School sessions will be in the summer term.


 Please see a list of clothing for your child's sessions.
