"The best thing is that they (the staff at LBJS) never stop believing in you." Jenna

"If you put the effort in, you'll achieve anything, if you don't, you won't" Olivia
"In Year 5 I was quite nervous about SATs, but now the time has come I am very confident thanks to the support that LBJS gives. The staff made me feel very secure and they have done everything they can do. Doing revision in the reading garden is definitely one of my favourite ways to revise. I LOVE Year 6!" Lottie
"Secure in Six is one of the best tools to help you with arithmetic. Do it and you will have nothing to worry about, you will be fine!" Jack

"We have all worked really hard and now we are ready for our SATs...Bring it on!" Amelie
"Doing some revision each day keeps the low scores away!" Amelia

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.
