Each term, we have a whole school focus for improvement, and for the spring term we are focusing on Making Maths Memorable!
Every single member of staff has come up with something to do that will inspire the children to remember the core maths knowledge that they should know by the end of each year group.
We need your help too! Keep and eye out for information coming home on the home learning flyers, which will give you ideas of how you can help.
Did you know, for example, that by the end of Year 6, ALL children must know how to convert between the commonly used imperial and metric measurements in the picture above?
Do you know how to do this? Try to find times at home where you can introduce this to your child, at an age-appropriate level, of course! Check back a few days later and see if they have remembered it!
Important news! Fairlands is currently one of the nominees for the community pool at ASDA in Stevenage.
When you shop, you will get a green token which you can use to vote for Fairlands.
If we win, we will be awarded some funding which we will use to install an outdoor gym for the children.
So please, get shopping and get voting!
We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday!
Thank you to all the staff, parents and children for being so WONDERFUL!
See you in the New Year!
The school has adopted a new resource this term called 'Jigsaw' to support us in delivering our relationships and health education curriculum.
The resource is based around six Jigsaw Puzzles, or themes, which link closely to our monthly values.
This half term, the Puzzle is called 'Celebrating Difference', which links brilliantly to our values of 'Tolerance' in November and 'Courage' in December.
We all know the story of Elmer the Elephant... but how can we make sure we positively celebrate difference in our school community?
Breakfast club was in full Pudsey swing this morning with everyone working together to create decorations for the dining hall.
The children were so enthusiastic that Cook was inspired to change the biscuits and cake today into Pudsey themed ones!
It was super to see so many children in a range of bright, spotty or Pudsey themed clothes, thank you for your great efforts!
