Pupil Voice

Some of the year 6 pupils were asked how they are feeling about taking their SATs next week and this is what they said…….

Ruby said, “I am feeling really confident about taking my SPAG paper but I’m slightly less confident about the reasoning paper because it’s not my strong subject.  I am looking forward to the SATs being over and concentrating on the play.”

Vanessa said, “I am confident about my maths tests but not so confident about my reading test because I struggle to understand everything.  I am going to try really hard.  I am excited to find out my results when the tests are over and I am hoping for the best.”

Ella said, “I feel really nervous, scared and at the same time slightly excited.  However, I’ll be happy for them to be over, especially all the revision and homework.  I am looking forward to the BBQ we have planned on Friday and having some fun.  I feel very confident about taking my maths paper and not so confident with the reading paper. I wish everyone the best of luck and hope they all do really well.”

Information

School Lockers

Due to limited space in the children’s lockers, we would like to encourage your child, should they wish to use a back pack, to bring in a small pack so that they fit more easily into the lockers and doors can be closed properly.  Ideally children just need a small P.E bag and their book bag in school.

School Uniform

Please ensure that you label your child’s full uniform, including PE and swimming kits.

Just a polite reminder: please do not leave litter on the school premises.

Free School Meals

PE Kits

Could parents please make sure that all pupils have their PE kits ready and in school.  Each pupil has their own locker where their PE kits can be kept during the school term.

Late arrival at school

When your child arrives late at school, he/she misses the teacher's instructions, their morning task and possibly the introduction to the mathematics lesson. Your child may also feel embarrassed at having to enter the classroom late. School begins at 09.00am.  Please help your child to be punctual.
