So, what does SATs preparation look like at LBJS?

Even Angus, our reading dog, wants to get involved...

"Revising is really fun because you get to do it with your friends and you get to learn things that you haven't learnt before.  Remember - What you put in, you get out!" Harvey

"Revising is fun with friends.  Read Theory, SPAG and MyMaths is a great way to keep low scores away!" Reuben

"SATs were really nerve-racking and when I started I was very nervous, but now I've revised I'm ready!" Cody


"The one thing that was helping me through SATs was that whenever I had a spare minute at home or at school, I would spend it doing revision.  I 'Fill the unforgiving minute' Kaitlyn

"Revising is fun when you're with your friends.  LBJS supplies the best equipment and areas to revise in.  So, SATs...Bring it on! I'm in it to win it! Brayden

"SATs may be seen as intimidating, however if you try to the best of your ability, you can achieve the impossible.  The teachers will always be there for you.  Just don't worry!" Lily

"My name is Olivia and I just want to say that if you are worried about SATs then try to build more courage everyday, trust me, it helps.  All the teachers and all your friends and family are there for you.  Think of it like a race - prepare for the race - like SATs, you will run it - you do the test, win the race - you succeed - you pass the test.  Always believe in yourself!" Olivia

"Believe in yourself and do your best, it actually helps!" Sam

fine!" Layla

And finally.... A message from the Year 6 team...

This poem was brought in by Kaitlyn and it says everything we feel at LBJS....
Good luck...YOU GUYS ROCK!!!


SATs don't measure sports
SATs don't measure art
SATs don't measure music
Or the kindness in your heart


SATs don't see your beauty
SATs don't know your worth
SATs don't see the reasons
You were put upon this earth


SATs don't see your magic
How you make others smile
SATs don't time how quickly
You can run a mile


SATs don't hear your laughter
Or see you've come this far
SATs are just a tiny glimpse
Of who you really are


So sitting at your table
With a pencil and your test
Remember SATs aren't who you are

Team Year 6 would like to wish ALL of our wonderful Year 6 pupils the very best of luck next week.  The amount of hard work you have put in has impressed us immensely
But remember this ...

SATs are just tests for Maths and English.  They don't show how kind, funny, creative or quirky you are - and all those times need to be celebrated!  Your value and worth is much greater than your SATs results.
