End of SATs Week!!!

CONGRATULATIONS to all children in Year 6 who have worked so hard over the past few months (and years)! Everybody approached SATs week with enthusiasm and a hard-working attitude. I could not be more proud of you all. To celebrate, we enjoyed a movie and popcorn afternoon on the final test day. We still have some hard work to do before the Summer break but there are lots of fun things to look forward to also.
