Welcome back to all of Year 6 and their families since the Easter break. I hope everyone had a brilliant time, despite the fact that the weather was pretty dire! And of course, the sun has decided to make its appearance as we return back to the classroom – adding to the general aroma of our classroom, lovely!
However, we are taking every opportunity to get out in the sun with Sports Day and District Sports practices on the meadow and the school field. We’ve chosen our new class book too, an overwhelming majority of the class chose “Room 13” by Robert Swindells. We are already making serious progress with this book so may be on our second choice before the next blog!
With all the excitement of the weather, visiting local Olympic gold medalists and starting new, creepy books, we have also firmly kept our sights on the impending SATs. On Monday we calculated how many working school days we had left until our first test on the 14th May – as I type we stand at 15 working days.
Plenty of time for us to revise and practise our essential knowledge, skills and techniques for the test. Although we understand that we shouldn’t be stressed or worried about the SATs (and in fact we should feel excited and ready to show how amazing we are!), we’re also very aware that with all the efforts we’ve gathered over the recent months we want to do our very best to achieve the best score personal to ourselves.
A few more weeks of preparation, one week of tests that we’re going to smash and then we’re ready to focus on our leavers activities and transition to our secondary schools.
Keep going, Class 6! We’re so nearly there!
