Mr Patterson’s Assembly

Today, at the end of the day, Mr Patterson did an assembly focusing on good sportsmanship. He started with one game and ended with three games. There was a lot of screaming and clapping and now we will tell you how the games went.

The first game was when he asked several teachers to stand up and he gave them two pence. Then he told them to flip the coin and whoever got heads had to sit down. After all that, we finally found a winner which was Mrs Pringle and she got to keep the pence.

After that, he told Eesa to come up and try to catch a piece of paper when he dropped it for five house points. On his last try, he finally got it and calmly went and sat down. Mr Patterson thought that it was great of him to not go crazy about him winning. All contestants did very well and had a lot of fun.

Year 6 SATS

This week, both Year 6 classes have tried their very hardest to get the best scores they could possibly in their SATS.

Year 6 children were split into 3 groups. Unfortunately, the first group had to be in school by 8:00. On Monday, Year 6 had to face their biggest fart: Sats (hehehe). Firstly, they had to do the SPAG and the spelling test that had 20 questions. Both classes got through the tests with ease.

After that, they had their reading test. Most of Year 6 were worried about finishing this test , however it was easier than they thought. Lastly, they had their maths and arithmetic tests. After that, it was freedom!

Year 6 are now thinking about their ( hopefully ) fabulous production at the end of the year along with relaxing.

We hope that Year 6 have an amazing rest of the year ( without having to worry about tests 🙂 )
