A Message to Year 6

Today marks the beginning of the week that would have been SAT’s week. Here is a little message to remind you that we know just how hard you have worked this year and that we have been thinking of you all.


A Message to Year 6 …

As SAT’s week arrives it’s 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.


Algebra, fractions, the times table drills,

Inference, retrieval, in-depth reading skills,

Past present, progressive…and every SPAG term,

You’ve practised and mastered them we can confirm.


Fear not though, the SAT’s yes, won’t happen this term,

But remember tests don’t measure all 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 Moorfield, you’ve made us so proud,

We sit here with pride and we shout this out loud…

“Year 6 you amaze us, you’ve come incredibly far,

We don’t need a test to see how amazing you are!”
