Good Morning Year 6 - I hope you all had a lovely, long weekend.
Did you like your surprise on Friday?
Well Y6, this week we all should have been doing something very different:
this week would have been SATs week! I'm sure there are mixed emotions about this!
A little bit of reading to start the day
As SATs week arrives, it's not quite the same,
The tests that were printed this year, never quite came.
The displays all still there; walls covered with work, vocab. and rules
But Year 6 is very different at present; at home and not in our school.
For some of you happiness - anxiety gone and lots of relief,
For others despondent, a sigh of loss and pure disbelief,
That you worked really hard, attended interventions, in advance of this week,
All in order to gain 'Expected' and 'Greater Depth' - higher marks you did seek.
Algebra enjoyed, fraction rules mastered, plus the many times tables drills,
Skimming and scanning, inference and retrieval, in-depth comprehension reading skills,
Past, present, progressive... and all the other GPS terms,
You've practised and mastered them over the years.
Fear not though, the SATs, yes, they 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 gained can't be defined by a test.
You've attended clubs after school and practised for competitions
You've rehearsed and improved skills, achieved certificates and graduations
Rugby and football players, gymnasts and dancers,
Cheerleaders, swimmers, gamers and martial arts masters.
So, here at Thythorn, you've made us so proud,
We sit here with pride and we shout this out loud...
Year 6 you've amazed us, you've come incredibly far,
We have missed you and celebrate how amazing you are!
Here's what we would have done each day under test conditions:
Today we are going to look and work through a past paper in a more relaxed way: 2019 - one you have not completed in class.
You can complete it in test conditions, or use your CGP book to search for question content you are unsure of - I don't mind. It's another time to practise, remind yourself and keep the important content to the forefront of your learning and your memory. It will give you an idea of the areas of work you need to revise and work on before you enter Year 7.
If you, or your parents/carers, want to mark your answers and see what score you get, I will e-mail them a link to the answers/mark scheme.
Joe Wicks for Monday afternoon PE, but you can carry it out this morning for 'Wake Up, Shake Up' if you wish.
