This week years 2,3 4 & 5 are doing their SATs. These are tests in reading , writing , number and science . They will be used to support Teacher Assessment and parents will learn the results when they receive their child’s report in July.
Here we see years 3 & 5 working hard on their tests. However, there are benefits during SATs week , drinks and biscuits are one.
On Tuesday we also managed our first picnic lunch of the year. It’s wonderful when the sun shines and everyone can play outside and enjoy the warm weather.
Even the animals are basking in the sunshine . Time for cricket.
For the next 2 weeks children will be taking the SATs and while they will be working hard there will be some fun time as well.
Years 3 & 4 had a wonderful visit to Goodwood Home Farm as part of their Farming topic. While there we saw a range of farm animals including orphan lambs and dairy cows. There was also plenty of farm machinery to see too, including a milking parlour. It gave a good insight into life on a working farm.
A walk around Seeley copse also taught the children about wildlife and the different types of plants that could be found. Lots of information gained and a fantastic day had by all.
There are more pictures in year 4 work.
