Summer 1, Week 4 Learning


Year 6 we know this week would have been your SATs week, Miss Farrer Mrs Rudd, Mrs Brand and Ms Chiswell couldn't be prouder of you all.  We thought this poem was something nice to share and read on this occasion. 

To all of 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, 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.


Algerbra, 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 all that 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 Burnt Oak, you've made us all 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!"



'The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you.'


From the Year 6 Burnt Oak Team!
