Good morning Year 6!
We hope that you are all OK and are still staying safe at home! What a strange week for us all, we thought we would be having breakfast together preparing for our first test of SAT's week today, instead we're at home able to spend time with our families. To celebrate how amazing we think you are, myself and Mrs Hylton have found a poem to share with you.
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, 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 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, yes, the SATs 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 Eastfield 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!'
So thank you all for having a positive attitude during lockdown and trying so hard with your home learning. To celebrate this week, our check in is what will you do this week that you wouldn't normally be able to do out of lockdown? I know Mrs Hylton has been baking! I've also spent much more time cooking which I don't do as much usually!
Remember that we're very proud of you and cannot wait to see you back in school.
See you soon and stay safe!
Miss Eagle and Mrs Hylton
