This week we will be doing mock SATs with the children. This is important for the children so they get used to sitting tests and, when it comes to the real thing in May, it is second nature to them. It also helps us, as teachers, assess their learning so far and for us to continue to identify where any gaps are.

Please help us by making sure your child is in school on time in order for a prompt start.

Don't forget we have year 6 breakfast club, open to all year 6 children. This helps children prepare for their day and allows for us to do extra work with the children (reading, times tables, mathematics, etc).
