Pupil Voice
The year 6 pupils have had a well-earned BBQ this afternoon to celebrate completing their SATs.  They were asked how they found their SATs and if they and enjoyed their BBQ and this is what they said…..
Jaydn said, “The SATs week was fun, I found it quite easy.  The reading paper was the hardest paper. The BBQ today was lovely.  It was nice to finally be able to let our hair down and have some fun.  Mr Spurgeon’s cooking was good, he didn’t kill us by poisoning us.”
Layla said, “I found the SATs week really hard and it wasn’t much fun.  I found the SPAG test the easiest and I found the first reasoning paper the hardest.  I’m glad they are finished.  The BBQ was surprisingly good.  No one got food poisoning.  The hot dog was really good.”
 
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.
