To all our Year 6s.
Today, we would have been pacing around for your arrival and the unveiling of the SATs papers. We would have welcomed you into school and greeted you with large, reassuring smiles,. We would have arranged a special breakfast for you. We would have offered you caring and positive words to motivate you for the day that lay ahead of you.
You may have had butterflies in your stomach and you would probably have been full of energy and crazy like you normally are. There would have been squeals of excitement, groaning and hugs to reassure your friends. Most importantly, we would have been together.
However, tomorrow will be a very different day. You will be at home safe with your loved ones. For some of you, you will feel happiness and relief that these SATs are not going ahead and some of you may feel frustrated after all your hard work preparing for them. These SATs were going to be a chance for us all to show how hard we have worked this year and how you should never be underestimated at West Melton Primary School. Nevertheless, we don’t need test results to show that and to measure everything you have learnt. Just be you and continue to do your best.
Many of the skills you’ve gained can’t be defined by a test. You will go forwards from here and you will show everyone how amazing you are and that hard work pays off.
You have all come so far in the time we have known you. You are all lovely people and can do what ever you want if you work hard and continue to have great attitudes. We may not be together but we promise you that all of the West Melton team are so proud of you all and we always will be! Please never forget that!
Have a wonderful week. Keep safe 🙂
