PRIMARY school pupils are currently enjoying their Easter break before returning for their final full term of the academic year.

And for the youngsters in Year 6, that means it’s time to sit their SATs.

The pupils have been hard at work at home and in the classroom in preparation.

Oliver Wilson, 11, said: “I can’t wait to get the SATs out of the way with now, I don’t really like doing tests.

“We have been doing loads of revision so we’re all ready but it will be good when they’re done and over with.”

Matthew Bradwell, 10, said: “We’ve been doing lots of work for the SATs.

“We have been revising in class and I’ve been doing some at home as well. I’m quite looking forward to getting them out of the way.”

Tegan Winwood, 10, said: “I am looking forward to doing the SATs in one way because then I’ll know what my levels are.

“I’m also looking forward to getting them out of the way because then I’ll just be able to have fun.”

Bekkah Jackson, 11, said: “I am not looking forward to the SATs at all but it will be good to get our results back afterwards and find out what level I am.

“Hopefully I’ll get all of the levels that I want, that would be brilliant.”

Daniel Hill, 10, said: “I’ve done my mock SATs but I won’t be doing the real SATs because I’m moving to New Zealand.

“I’m really looking forward to moving with all of my family even though it will be a big change.”

Sophie Andrews, 11, said: “I’m actually looking forward to the SATs because after all of the hard work we’ve done I want to get my levels back and see how I’ve done.”
