SATs 2024 Good Luck

SATs – A poem for the Year 6 Children Preparing to take the tests ❤️

With SATs week fast approaching, Safeguarding Adviser Lucie Welch has written a poem for the Year 6 children preparing the take the tests…


So Year 6, the time has finally come,

The dreaded SATs are here,

But this is what you’ve worked for,

Since you moved up in to this year.


These tests will tell us what you’ve learned,

And what you can recall,

But there’s a million things,

The SATs won’t tell us at all.


They won’t tell us how you dance,

Or draw, or sing, or run,

Or tell us just how great you are,

At any other things you’ve done.


The SATs don’t measure super-ness,

Or how kind or brave you are,

They’re just a way of helping to see,

All you’ve learned so far.


So all we ask of each of you,

Is to try the best you can,

But no matter the score you’ll get,

We’ll always be your fan!


You’ve worked your socks off this year through,

And now the time has come 

By this time next week, you can say,

Phew, the SATs are done.


So rest up, eat lots and get some sleep,

So you’re ready and raring to go,

To show those SATs test who’s the boss,

And show them what you know!


But remember that when they’re over,

It doesn’t matter how you’ve done,

Because you are wonderful, brilliant and fab,

And you’ll be amazing in your lives to come!


Believe in yourself. You are all amazing!

Good luck from everyone at Services For Education 🩷
