As SATs week arrives it’s not quite the same,
The tests that we planned for never quite came.
The displays are still up; walls full of maths rules,
But your laughter and love is missing from school.
For some of you, happiness, lots of relief,
For others a sigh of pure disbelief.
You all made us proud preparing for this week,
Expected and Greater depth grades you did seek.
Algebra, fractions, the times table drills,
Inference, retrieval and reading skills.
Past present progressive and all that SPAG,
We know that you had all of this in the bag!
Fear not though, the SATs do not measure,
All of the wonderful things you will treasure.
The memories you have made at Consett Junior School,
Will stay with you for a lifetime, each as a jewel.
So again, just to say ‘You’ve made us all proud’
We were just desperate to tell you and shout it out loud.
‘Year 6 you are amazing, you’ve come incredibly far and we don’t need a test to see how amazing you are!’
