Morning Year 6¬†🙂!
 
As SATs week arrives it’s not quite the same,¬†
The tests that were printed for you never came,
The displays are still up; walls full of Maths ‘rules’,
But Year 6 is very different, at present, in schools,
 
For some of you, happiness, lots of relief,
For others a sigh of pure disbelief,
That you worked so 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,
You discussed and learnt SPAG with your peers,
You have practiced and mastered them over the years,
 
So here at Devonshire Road you have 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…
and we don’t need the test to see how incredible YOU are!¬†
 
We hope you all had a lovely bank holiday and VE Day celebrations!
Today we would like you to:
