Class of 2020

Today is the day that SATs would have started – how are you all feeling about it? Are you pleased you don’t have to sit them or frustrated because you’ve worked really hard?

I’d like to reassure you that all your hard work will not be wasted and I’m very proud of the hard work you have been putting in in these strange times.

It would be really nice to hear from you and know how you are feeling about not taking your SATs. If you want to tell me but don’t want me to publish the comment on the blog, just put (private) at the top of your message.

I hope you are all well – I miss you and hope to see you all again soon.

    Hello Miss Clarke, I am quite sad that we can’t do our SATS but I have been doing lots of fun things like making elderflower cordial, making pizza and watching Eurovision. I am doing a music and dance group thingy at the weekend via Zoom and I am really looking forward to it 😊
    From Aoife

      Hi Aoife – it sounds like you are making the most of being at home with your family! Having tasted your tiffin (the best tiffin in the world), I’m sure your pizza is also delicious. I’m glad you are still doing the things you enjoy doing – dancing on zoom must be interesting!
      Take care and stay safe xx

    Hi Miss Clarke,
    I’m quite glad that I don’t have to do SATS and don’t have to go through the stress of doing them. At the same time, I feel like we won’t be able to show our hard work but we can show that in secondary school. I’ve never been able to experience what Thornbridge is like which is sad but I’m sure there will be more opportunities. I miss my friends and teachers so much, I have been face timing my friends most days which makes me happier. I have also been fitting in some work and reading time but also making sure I have fun as well.
    I hope you are all safe and well.

      Hi Brooke, thanks for your message. I’m missing everyone a lot too. I’ve been sad this week that we won’t get to experience Thornbridge together but like you said, you will get other opportunities to do amazing things. It’s so important to stay in contact with your friends and have plenty of time for fun. Take care xx

    Hi Miss Clarke hope your okay and I can’t wait to see you all hopefully in June. I’m not that bored yet and I’m quite busy with doing the chilly challenges. My mum has given me a spare Y7 maths book from her school but the writings really small so I can’t read it that well but I am trying my best. I was wondering what website it was that teaches sign language: you mentioned one on the last day.
    My mum just told me that we were supposed to be going to Thornbridge tomorrow 😢 and tomorrow’s weather is going to be really good.
    Hope your all safe and well, missing you all
    Sophie xx

      Hi Sophie, lovely to hear from you! I’m very well thank you – like you, I’m not bored at all and very busy with school work and preparations for opening. I will have a look today for a good website to learn sign language and upload it to the blog for everyone to see. I’m also about to upload some different things to the blog, including a message about Thornbridge. I think out of all the things we are missing out on, Thornbridge is the one I’m most disappointed about.
      Hopefully see you soon xx

    I think I worked hard at school and at home to prepare for my SATs, but because of Covid 19 and school closing in March I new I wasn’t sitting them. Also I have learnt new skills whilst I’ve been at home such as making pizzas.

    Stay safe everyone😎😎

      A very valuable life skill Maison – I’m sure your family are very pleased you can make them all pizzas!

    Hi Miss Clark .
    Although i worked hard for STATS i am kind of glad that we don’t have to do them,for it sounds very stressful and i would not have liked all the pressure.
    I have been working hard at home but are getting a bit bored now .I miss my friends and don’t like not seeing them.

    • Ms Clarke
      14th May, 2020 at 12:42pmm

      You have worked very hard Hannah and you should be proud of what you have achieved. All the learning you have done will make things so much easier next year so don’t worry, it’s not wasted time. I’m sure everyone is missing their friends and members of their family – it’s such a strange time for us all. I hope you and your family are all well and hope to see you soon 🙂

    Im kind of happy that we don’t get to do sats because I was stressed that I wasn’t going to pass them . I feel like I am not ready for secondary school and I miss my friends. I have been facetiming my friends a lot and have been doing lots of work . I hope everyone is safe and is washing their hands .

    • Ms Clarke

      If you’ve been doing lots of work you’ll be absolutely fine at secondary school Amy! I know it’s worrying but every year 6 will be feeling anxious/excited about moving to secondary school and everyone is in the same situation with having missed a lot of school. You just need to do your best and trust that you will catch up.

    although it is annoying our hard work cant go into SATS i’m happy that i can do work with my friends and also do subjects that are not available in school such as baking . I have also learnt how to roller skate and I’m really getting into drawing . I hope everyone is safe and well .

    • Ms Clarke
      12th May, 2020 at 5:33pmm

      I think keeping busy and making the most of the time at home learning new skills is really important, Millie. I’ve started to learn how to play the ukulele which I never would have had time for before. I’m glad you’re enjoying drawing more – I’d love to see some of your drawings, please upload some to the blog!

    I’m a bit frustrated that we can’t do sats or come to school. I really want to se my friends before we leave school. I’m keeping busy and doing work at home. I enjoy going for a walk in the nice warm whether. I’m doing lots of cooking and baking with my mum. I feel sad about not being able to go to thornbridge. I hope we will be back at school soon from Rui.

    • Ms Clarke
      12th May, 2020 at 1:35pmm

      Hi Rui, I know it’s hard not getting to see all of your friends. I hope that we all get to be together before you start secondary school too. The warm weather has been amazing hasn’t it? I’ve been enjoying going for walks too and see the baby animals (ducklings, goslings, lambs and even a foal). Hopefully see you soon.

    I’m kind of happy I don’t have to SATs at the moment, because I know that you have to do another test like them in Notredame. I’m also getting tired of doing work all day every day when I don’t really want to. I am enjoying the weather though, and that is probably the best part of being off apart from my Nintendo switch. I am also looking forward to doing brownies today .

    • Ms Clarke
      11th May, 2020 at 12:12pmm

      Hi Owen, thanks for your message. I know it’s hard to keep going with the work but you need to see it as an investment for secondary school – like saving money. The more time you spent learning now, the easier things will be later on. Just think about how good you’ll feel when you understand lessons at Notre Dame and the teachers see how much effort you’ve put in at home.
      Enjoy making your brownies today – I wish I could try them!
