To all of our Year 6 pupils
Today would have been the start of SATs week. Although it wasn’t something I expect you were looking forward to, I know that it was something you have worked so hard for.
Since Christmas, I have watched you prepare for this time – revisiting areas of maths you were unsure of, reading all the time and checking you understood what you had read, recalling all the grammar terms and practising your spellings, writing, writing and more writing practice. I have seen you working independently, in groups and one-to-one with adults. You have all worked so hard and we are so proud of you!
We didn’t need the SATs papers to tell us how well you would have done this week – we already knew. The preparation and hard work you have given, is a life-skill that you will take forward as you move on to secondary school and in to work. Nothing has been a waste a time. Everything you have done has been part of your big learning journey.
So, there are no SATs papers this week, but we still want to take this opportunity to say how proud we are of you and how amazing each and every one of you is! All the hard work will be worth it. Remember what we say, you reap what you sow.
Although you’re not in school, we haven’t forgotten you and we will make sure we find a way to finish your time at primary school in a different, yet still special, way! You deserve it.
We are thinking of you all.
Mrs Campbell and all the staff at OVPA ❤️
