At last, it may, just possibly, finally be appearing. This week the children at St Peter’s have, both in their free time and lessons, been able to enjoy better weather for their outdoor play and learning. Of course, those in the teaching profession always know exactly when summer will arrive – at the very time in the school year when many pupils are stuck indoors revising and sitting tests. So well done to our Year 6 pupils who conducted themselves in an exemplary and mature manner through their SATs this week. These pupils more than most should enjoy any good weather and generous family treats (hint hint parents) that may come along this weekend.
The work is not over, though, as Year 6 will continue to produce, review, edit and hone their written work to submit for moderation in mid-June, and Year 2 pupils will have more SATs during the coming week, so do please keep all of these pupils in your prayers.
Well done to six pupils from Years 4, 5 and 6 who took part in Crookhorn School’s Press Gang challenge on Friday 5 May. They performed exceptionally well to research stories and produce new articles under strict time pressures in competition with other local primary schools, and the certificates with which they were presented will be handed out in an up-coming assembly.
