Hard Work Brings Great Rewards!
Its amazing how much the weather can change at this time of year. One minute, we are basking in beautiful sunshine, making the most of our fantastic grounds and the next we are sheltering from thunderous rain! With all of this turbulence caused by the ever changing weather, it commendable that the children are still constant in their behaviour and attitude towards their learning; Our ‘Work Hard’ personal development theme is very much in evidence.
In a little over a week’s time, our Year 6 and Year 2 children will be participating in the end of Key Stage assessments (also known as SATs). These assessments provide an understanding of our children’s skills and knowledge of the maths and English curriculums for each Key Stage. This can be an anxious time, particularly for Year 6 who are not only about to finish their primary phase of education but also start their secondary one. Our children are so keen to achieve that they are sometimes hard on themselves and I have taken time to talk to them. Hopefully, I have be able to reassure them and have again made clear that we are incredibly proud of them and all that they have achieved in their time at Huntingtower and that trying their best is all that we wish for. As we finish for the week and look forward to hopefully a sunny Bank Holiday weekend, we hope they will all take the time to rest and recouperate so that they are ready for a busy couple of weeks ahead.
