Hello Year 6, A Poem For You

Today is the day that SATs would have started,

The classroom set up and the tables parted,

The rules on the board, the display walls all covered,

Your workbooks away, out of sight in the cupboard,

Instead you are home, you’re doing your bit,

Protecting your families from getting sick,

It’s important right now, we’re in lockdown you see,

Being a part of world history,

You’ve all worked so hard, you should be so proud,

You’ve practised you SPAG and times tables out loud,

You’ve learnt algebra to the Nth degree,

And now the tests, they will no longer be,

Some may be sad that they can’t take the tests,

“Hip hip hooray” I’ve no doubt said the rest,

Whilst the tests are on hold and you stay home this term,

Remember that tests can’t measure everything you learn,

And I don’t need SATs results to tell me,

How hard you have worked, it’s easy to see,

‘Lockdown’ Year 6, let me shout it out loud,

You’ve made all your teachers so very proud,

So please continue to learn, fill that brain up full,

And remember, we think you’re all wonderful!

We miss you all and hope you are all staying safe and well laugh

Monday 27th April

All your home learning for this week will be under 'Homework' in the Pupil Area. This will be updated each week on Sundays. If you have any questions or problems, email or comment so that I can help you.

Note that for English you have a document called 'Wonder' - it is the entire book (200 pages) and you can read it on screen. You may not want to print off the whole document, if you don't have enough printer paper, but if you do, it's a fantastic book so you might want to read it all after this week.
