We had SATS week in school for our Y6 pupils this week where they sat papers in Reading, Maths, Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar. Staff have been helping them prepare and, just for this week, they got to enjoy breakfast in school with their classmates in a relaxed atmosphere with a choice of a bacon sandwich or a bowl of cereal and a drink, from a selection of juices. On Thursday afternoon, the children were treated to donuts to celebrate the week!
All of the children have worked incredibly hard across the year and we want them to know how much we appreciate their efforts.
Y6 will now look forward to the 5 day residential trip to Mill Rythe next week where they will participate in numerous exciting and fun-packed activities! Y6 children not attending the residential will enjoy a week of activities both in school and out so there is certainly lots to look forward to!
Well done to you all!
Here is an account from two of our Y6 pupils about how the week went:
“The SATs is a group of tests the year six pupils have to take. They last four days. As you can imagine, this is a nerve-wracking experience, but it wasn’t as bad as we all thought it was going to be as we had had so much practise. We had to arrive at school by 8:30am to eat our breakfast (bacon sandwiches or cereal ). Once we had finished we watched a ‘Go Noodle’ video every day to relax our brains. We then went back to class and wrote our details on the front cover of the test. Our teachers read the rules to us before the time started. On Monday we had a SPaG test and a spelling test, on Tuesday we had a reading paper, on Wednesday we had an arithmetic test and the first maths reasoning test, then on the last day (Thursday) we did the second maths reasoning test. All in all, we quite enjoyed the week!”
