to Year 5/6
Meet your teacher
Welcome to Legendary Lions Y5/6, your final year at Rawmarsh Sandhill Primary School! My name is Mr Cairns and I’ll be your teacher for the upcoming school year. I’m really looking forward to teaching you all and watching you grow into mature young adults.
Outside school, I love to play football and golf. I also enjoy going to the gym!
We have lots of fun and exciting activities to look forward to, as well as our Robinhood residential towards the end of the year. This year, it is essential that you work really hard, push yourselves so you can achieve and reach your goals and develop your resilience as we will be doing SATS. However, there is no need to worry about this as we will take it all in our strides and I’ll be here to support you every step of the way. Let’s rise to the challenge!
Meet your teaching assistant
My name is Mrs Elvidge and I’ll be your teaching assistant for the upcoming school year! I’m really looking forward to helping you all with your learning – remember I will always be there for you if you are struggling! Let’s smash this year together as a team.
Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family going out for meals and socialising.
The school day starts at 8.45 but the register will be closed at 9am. We will reward you with Dojo points for being on time and in every day as well as using the Sandhill Ways. You will also get Team Point for working as a team, participating in your learning and contributing during lessons.
Your class dojo name is Legendary Lions and we will post on there when your PE days are. We would also like you to come to school every day in your uniform. The school day ends at 3.15pm.
