A Testing Week
SATs week is over and the children throughout the school have been amazing. The hard work they and their teachers put in has paid off and the children all approached the end of year assessments in a relaxed but conscientious and focused manner. A special mention to Year 6 who have worked especially hard as they approach the end of their time at Strand. Thank you to all the parents who have supported us by encouraging revision and helping with homework. The Year 6 staff in particular have worked incredibly hard and they and the children are looking forward to a well earned rest this weekend before they turn their attention to the next big event in the Year 6 calendar – Knapp House, followed by the Mini Fair and ‘The Show’ – the stage is already being whitewashed ready for this year’s backdrop! Years 3, 4 and 5 are finishing off their tests next week so keep up the early nights!
