Year 6

Welcome to Year 6   smiley


Despite the weather still feeling a little autumnal at times, we are definitely in the Summer Term now! Secondary school places have been allocated, and we only have a couple of weeks until the SATs tests begin on the 13th May. The children should be proud of how hard they have worked this year and can start looking forward to lots of fun activities and topics for their final term at Didsbury Road.


The timetable for the SATs tests this year is:


Monday 13th May- Grammar Paper1 (Questions) and Paper 2 (Spelling)

Tuesday 14th May- Reading Paper

Wednesday 15th May- Maths Paper 1 (Arithmetic) and Paper 2 (Reasoning)

Thursday 16th May- Maths Paper 3 (Reasoning)


During the week of SATs, please remind children to rest, relax and switch off as much as possible- the best preparation will be to eat well, stay hydrated and get lots of sleep!
