SATS Week - We've Finished!!
We just wanted to say a huge well done to all our Year 6 children for all their amazing hard work and determination this week during the tests. They have shown a really mature attitude towards their exams and have taken it all in their stride. All the staff at Methley, and in particular the Year 6 team, are incredibly proud of each and everyone one of you - well done!!
Friday Bake Off - We hope parents, family and guardians will be able to join us for our Royal Wedding themed bake off competition tomorrow to celebrate all the children's hard work over the last few weeks and also to raise some money for 'Stand Up to Cancer'.
We will open the hall up from 2.15pm where we will be selling tea, coffee and most importantly cake! Prizes will be award and all proceeds raised will be donated to the Stand Up to Cancer charity.
We are not running the Easter booster sessions this year, however we are putting plenty of resources on the website (see below) to help with revision over the Easter holidays. Have a look!
My Maths - The children have each received their own unique log in details to access the MyMaths website. We have assigned all the SATS booster tasks for them to complete online. You must log in with the schools details first (which they have also received) where you will be able to access all the online lessons and tutorials, then if you input your personal log in, you will be able to access the SATS booster assessment materials.

English Writing Revision
Next half term we will be reading War Horse by Michael Morpurgo. If you are looking for something to read over the holidays then why not get a head start and give it a go, or you could always watch the film? Also we will be writing diary entries, balanced arguments and letters.
Challenge: To write a diary entry recounting a memorable day from the Easter holidays.
Key information from the SATS meeting below...
Every Monday and every Friday we will be setting an optional challenge that can be completed at home. The aim of these challenges are to revisit and revise learning from Year 6 and other areas of the Key Stage 2 curriculum. Although these challenges are currently optional, they provide a great opportunity to practise key elements of learning in the build up to the end of key stage SATS and writing assessments - positively impacting outcomes at the end of the year.
Monday Challenges - due in on a Friday morning.
Friday Challenges - due in the following Wednesday morning.
This week's Monday Challenge -

The Future Mayor of Leeds?
As a result of participating in the Leeds Children's Mayor Campaign, one of our very own, Ewan McGawn, was invited to meet The Lord Mayor of Leeds on the 2nd of November. He was treated to a tour of the Council Chambers and to tea and biscuits at the Civic Hall. We're really proud that Ewan was able to represent our school as a result of all his hard work during the campaign. He certainly looks a natural sat in the chair, definite future Mayor potential! Thank you to mum for forwarding us these fantastic pictures.
