Pupil Voice

The pupils in La Classe Marron had a revision day for their SATS on Monday 7 May; we asked them what they did and if they enjoyed it. This is what they said...

Beth - We did some things about fractions for SATS to help us. We got to go outside to have some fresh air. Breakfast was good; we had croissants, toast, crumpets, chocolate spread and pain au chocolat. I liked the mini brownies and popcorn. The revision that we did was extremely helpful. After the revision day I felt more confident.

Mia - It was fun when we went outside to get some fresh air multiple times; I was confident before but now I am even more confident that I will be able to pass my SATS. I enjoyed the lunch.

Macey - It was fun, although I struggled with some parts of the revision. First we came in and got registered. We went to the hall for breakfast and then we did some revision, we got to go outside multiple times. For breakfast my favourite thing was toast with chocolate spread and the drink I had was apple juice. For lunch I had a sandwich, some popcorn, some cocktail sausages and some orange juice.
