Today would have been the night before SATs Week – the old normal
Your timetable for the week explained and your breakfast ordered
But this is no normal…. The tests will never be seen
Breakfast still in the bowls- Year 6 patiently still staying at home!
This new normal for some will bring relief, happiness and lots of cheers
For others, a regret that they have not had the chance to prove themselves
Hard work for all those weeks, won’t be turned into mark improvements or grades
Like Expected Standard or even Greater Depth, scaled scores no more for the cohort of 2020.
Read, read, read…. Love it, answer them, and refer to the text
Were drilled in through the years, so you would achieve….
Times tables, times tables,,, answer accurately and at speed
Were hammered into your ears so you no marks were to be lost.
Please do not fear, this hard work and success will still be worth it as you move on
You are able to access these tests even if you never saw them, answer them
Success will continue to come to each and every one of you, as your learning has been great
Your skills and knowledge still in your head, so keep it there for another day of learning.
High View could not be more proud of you- you are the best with or without a test
You have made amazing progress and hour long tests lost, will not make you lose this
You have tried, you have continued and you have made us adore albeit from afar
Well done to our Year 6 and for you we applauded- Keep working hard as learning never stops!
All our love Mrs Darrington, Mrs Browne and Miss Smith
