Year 6 SATs
Like everything, the SATS came around again quickly!  Our amazing Year 6's started their preparation months ago and were more than ready to give it their best.  Once again, Ms Frankish and Mrs Bromley provided a free breakfast club before school to calm the children's nerves and give them the best start to the day.  After the first day of tests the children got to zone out in the hall to de-stress, with the option of hand and foot massages, calming colouring, listening to relaxing music and lying on the floor chilling in whatever way they felt comfortable - we may even have had a child almost fall asleep!
To round off their week, Mrs Carney invited all Year 6's to celebratory hot chocolate and marshmallows in the staff room (!)...a bigger treat is being planned as we speak so watch this space...
Undeniably, the tests were challenging this year but we know the children gave it their all and we are more than proud of the mature and well-rounded children they are becoming.
After all, we know that they have been blessed with skills that SATS don't test!
