A message for Year 6

Hi Year 6, 

Just a little message to say that we hope you are all well and are keeping safe. This week would have been your SATS week, which you have all worked so hard towards this year. Your teachers and the adults in Y6 couldn't be any prouder of what you have ALL achieved! It has been great to see so many examples of your work being sent to the email address for us to look at. 

Remember, doing your work from home is a difficult thing and everyone is finding some challenges but just do what you can. It is important to have lots of little breaks as much as possible. If we were in school this week, we would have been doing lots of fun activities and things to keep our minds refreshed and happy - so do the same at home! Here is a little poem from the Year 6 adults to you.

To all our Year 6’s,

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 very different, at present, in schools.


For some of you, happiness, a lot of relief,

For others sighs of pure disbelief,

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 that you’ve gained can’t be defined by a test.


So, here at Stopsley, 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!"


From all the adults in Year 6 :-)
