As SATs week arrives, it's not quite the same,
The tests that were printed this year never came,
The displays are still us; walls full of school rules,
But Year 6 is very different, at present, in schools.
For some of you, happiness, lots of relief,
For others a sigh of pure disbelief,
That you worked really hard in advance of this week,
Expected and Greater Depth marks you did seek,
Agebra, fractions, the arithmetic drills,
Inference, retrieval, in-depth reading skills,
Past, present, progressive ... and all the GPS terms,
You've practised and mastered them over the years.
Fear not though, the SATs, yes, won't happen this term,
But remember tests don't measure everything you learn,
Primary subjects are varied; you've always tried your best,
And many of your skills can't be defined by a test.
So, here at Crumpsall Lane you've made us so proud,
We sit here with pride and we shout this out loud...
Year 6 you amaze us, you've come incredibly far...
And we don't need a test to know how amazing you are!
Love Mrs Williams, Miss Cloherty and all the Y6 team!
