We hope you are all well and enjoying the sunshine! Can you believe there are only 3 weeks left until the summer holiday begins!?!
It has been brought to our attention by parents that many secondary schools are now setting the children work in preparation for September including transition booklets. We have therefore decided to reduce the amount of work being set on the website so that children can manage their workload and prioritise their secondary school learning. In school, we will now begin to focus more on transition from primary to secondary school too. We will post some tasks for the children should they wish to complete them. We will also provide transition work in case their secondary school hasn't sent anything yet. For anyone who requires additional work, we would recommend using BBC Bitesize or Oak National Academy.
The Year 6 Team
Mrs Hopkinson, Mrs Collins & Miss Austin
To all of Year 6,
As SATs week arrives it is not quite the same,
The tests that were printed this year never came.
The displays are still up; walls full of math's rules,
But Year 6 it's 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 seek.
Algebra, 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 we can confirm.
Fear not though, the SATS's, yes 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 Burleigh Primary School, you've made us very 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 all are!"
We are so proud of you,
Love from Mrs Hopkinson, Miss Austin and Mrs Collins xxx
