Yr 6 - 11th May - SATS message

Good morning again!

That time has reached us when we would have been completing our SAT's !!!!

I have a poem for you:


As SAT's week arrives it is not quite the same,

The tests that were printed this year never came,

The displays all still up, walls full of Maths Rules,

But Year 6 very different, at present, in schools.


For some of you, happiness, lots of relief,

For others a sign of pure disbelief,

That you worked really hard in advance of this week,

Expected and Greater Depth marks you did seek.


Alegrba, fractions, the times tables drills,

Inference, retrieval, in-depth reading skills,

Past present, progressive..... and all the SPAG terms

You've practised and mastered them over the years.


Fear not though, the SATS, yes won't happen this term,

But remember tests don't measure everything you learn,

Primary subjects are varied, you've always tried your best,

Any many of those skills that you've gained can't be defined by a test.


So, here at Brockenhurst you've made us so proud,

We sit here with pride and we shout this out loud.....

"Year 6 you amaze us, you've come incredibly far.....

And we don't need a test to see how amazing you are!"
