Year 6

Welcome to Year 6

It's Summer! This term we you will be completing your May SATS but don't panic! We will be doing plenty to help guide you on your way. We will also be having great fun looking at other topics too  - including our Spring Festival. In Art we are going to create our final piece, in Geography we are orienteering and in Music we are looking at the Garage Band App. 

There are lots of other skills to be learned this year and we will be right beside you to guide you on the way.

Bubble closure - Class 13

Class 13 during their bubble closure has produced some incredible work whilst working at home. I am extremely proud of them all and they should all be equally proud of themselves.  They have remained positive, persevered, self-repaired and stayed confident. This is just a taster of some of the work they have done, but this is only a fraction of the amount of what they have achieved.

.......................................................................................................................................................................................................

Monday 11th May 2020 is a very different Monday to the one we were expecting. You may have been feeling a little nervous or had butterflies in your stomach. You would have been coming into school for toast and juice but instead you're at home safe with your loved ones. For some of you, you feel happiness and relief, whereas some of you may feel a little frustrated and still in disbelief. These SATs were going to be a chance to show how hard you have worked all year and how hard you've worked during your time at Mesty Croft. 

Nevertheless, we don't need test results to define you. We know how great you are and the SATs don't measure all your fantastic qualities. They can't tell us who is fabulous at art or sport, who excels in history or geography, who is a great friend and peer. They can't tell us this but we know this. We know how you will go onto your new school in September and make us proud so just keep being you!

You have all come on so far. You are wonderful human beings who all have bright futures ahead of you. We may not be together but we promise you that all the staff at Mesty Croft are so proud of you and always will be. Please never forget that. 

 

Have a wonderful SATs free day and stay safe smiley
