Dear Year 6,
As SATs week arrives it is not quite the same,
The tests that were planned 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 sigh of pure disbelief,
That you worked really hard in advance of this week,
Expected and Greater depth marks you did seek.
Algebra, fractions, the times table 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,
And many of those skills you've gained can't be defined by a test.
So, here, at Our Lady's, you've made us so proud
We sit 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!'
Below are some 'Silly Sat's' to mark this week and have a bit of fun. Please don't take them seriously and just have a laugh with them. Well done for all your hard work, so far, this year. I really am very proud of you.
