Welcome to Year 6P!
Summer 1 2020
Class Teacher: Miss Percival:
Dear all of our amazing Year 6 members at St. Cuthbert’s,
This week should have been your SATs week- this morning and for the rest of the week you would have been preparing yourself to sit some tests that you had all been working so hard towards. Although some of you may be relieved, you may also feel disappointed that you have not had the opportunity to showcase all the wonderful progress you have made. Please remember, just because you are not doing tests, it does not mean that your progress, hard work and attainment are not going to be recognised and celebrated. We are so immensely proud of every single one of you for the hard work, perseverance and enthusiasm that you have shown this year. You have made year 6 such a fun and enjoyable place to be. So when you are completing work this week, or reflecting back on your time in year 6, please take the time to think about how much you have learnt and how much you have grown as a person in your own individual way. You should be proud of your journey just as much as we are. When all this is over we will celebrate your amazing efforts and achievements. You are all so special and have come such a long way!
Here is a poem to show how proud we are of you all:
As SATs 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 is very different, right now 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.
Place value, fractions, the arithmetic drills,
Inference, retrieval, in-depth reading skills,
Past present, progressive...and all the SPAG terms,
Across the subjects of many you've learned.
Fear not though, the SATs won't happen this term,
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.
Remember, the fun and laughter that we have all shared,
Through trench building, sketches and Kingswood team work when paired.
The magnificent drama brought to life through Macbeth,
And tag rugby games that had you all out of breath.
So, here at St Cuthbert's, 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 fantastic you are!
We will see you soon,
Miss Percival and Mr Keegan
