Welcome to Year 6!
Hello! I am Mrs Cashin, one of the Year 6 teachers 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 we are both excited to get started!
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!
Spellings - Children will be given 10 words to learn and will be tested each Monday. These will be placed on Seesaw and should be practised on Spelling Shed every evening for at least 10 minutes.
Time Tables - Time Tables Rock Stars should also be used daily to help children maintain their time table knowledge for at least 10 minutes.
Mathletics - Each week we will award a Mathletics champion in the class for the child with the most points that week. Children are expected to achieve a minimum of 1,000 points.
Learning Warrior and 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:
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.
We support these through our Learning Warrior Scheme which rewards pupils for exhibiting these qualities.
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. Children we have a session each week for the whole year.
