Test Weeks

Good attendance and punctuality at school is always important, but it is especially important over the next 2 weeks, from:

Tuesday 3rd May - Friday 13th May

The children are completing their Standardised Assessment tests in Maths, Reading and spelling throughout the school.

The reading and Maths tests from Year 2 - Year 6 are National Assessment tests.

These are VERY important tests as they help to support the teachers assessment of the childrens progress throughout the year.

The Year 6 results are also used by the High School as a Baseline from which they group the children.

Sample tests materials to practice at home can be found online at: http://learning.wales.gov.uk/resources/numeracy-sample-materials/?lang=en

RUGBY TOURNAMENT

On Wednesday 20th April 2016 Mr Gunter took the St Andrews rugby team to Rogerstone Primary School to take part in a rugby tournament. We came runners up in the plate competition, beating Eveswell in the semi\'s, but losing to Mount Pleasant in the final. An excellent effort from all the boys and girls especially the number of Year 4\'s that were competing.
