Lions and Tigers,
As this week would have been the week of your test
Instead, take a breath and enjoy your rest
You’ve worked really hard and aimed for greater depth
But your work isn’t forgotten, you just took different steps.
As SATs week arrives, it’s not quite the same
Even though tests were printed, they just never came.
The classroom stands empty - displays still on the wall
But it doesn’t feel the same, not without you all.
Fractions, percentages and times table drills
Inference, retrieval and endless reading skills
The grammar and spelling almost had us in tears
But they were certainly mastered by you over the years.
Don’t worry, the SATs won’t happen this term
But they’re not a true measure of what you actually learn.
Laughing and joking, science and art
Your friends and lunchtime are what’s most of your heart.
We know your true talents and we hold them all dear
Because you have been our family- all of this year.
There are so many things for which you’ve tried your best
But so many more that can’t be defined by a test
Stand tall and remember the people you’ve wowed!
While we sit here at home, quiet and proud.
Year 6, you’ve amazed us in coming so far
So just remember we don’t need a test to show us just how amazing you are!
