As a Cambridge-accredited school, Year 6 students will be sitting their English, Mathematics and Science Checkpoint examinations from Tuesday 25 April to Thursday 27 April. Students are busy preparing for the examinations as they complete practice papers, and take part in small-group intervention and whole-class revision lessons.
Following the completion of the examinations, test papers will be sent back to the examination board in Cambridge to be externally marked, with the results being returned to school at the end of June. Each student will receive a statement of achievement which gives the learner’s overall results and a report that provides further detail on the learner’s performance against each topic or skill area. We wish them all the very best of luck in their up and coming examinations!
On Thursday, the ‘Chance to Shine’ group met for the first time with Ms Aimee, who is leading the weekly sessions. The invited Year 6 students will take part in learning activities designed to develop language skills, support peer interaction and increase self-confidence. During the first session, students took part in ice-breaker activities that encouraged them to talk about things that made them happy and that made them sad. Drawing on the positives, students recorded some of the things that are important to them on their personalised name cloud. It was wonderful to see the students work so well together and feel comfortable in their environment.
