A Warm Welcome to

Chester Park Junior School

....Please remember that school finishes for the summer on Friday 17th July at 3.20pm. We return to school on Thursday 3rd September...

The year 6 children have delighted family, friends and pupils with their production "Do you remember the first time?" this week. Have a look on the gallery tab for more photographs.  

Joanna, Zack and Hattie proudly received their certificates for the Bristol Healthy Chef and Baker awards today from the Lord Mayor. Joanna has written all about it on our Gallery section, where you can also see them being presented with their awards and prizes! Congratulations!

On Tuesday 7th July our school Gardening Club, accompanied by Mrs Cork and Mrs Walker traveled to the Lord Mayor's house in Clifton to receive their Gold Bristol in Bloom certificate and prize. Maisie and Lily said: "It was a great big house near the zoo with Chandeliers, We couldn't believe how big it was- there were 6 floors and a basement! We got there early and played in the garden for a while, then were invited in for drinks and biscuits.We sat a massive table, and then went into a beautiful conservatory. After that we were taken to see all sorts of artifacts belonging to Lord Mayors over time. There were over 400 people there but the Lord Mayor congratulated us on our garden, as we have grown nutritional food which we can eat , especially as we only have a small playground with no green space." The group proudly left with their framed certificate and garden vouchers. Both girls so enjoy their gardening, that they now share their enthusiasm with their parents and have been joining in growing things with their parents at home!

Dear Year 6 pupils,

 You have managed to reach the end of the SAT tests today and it has been a long week. Some of you have had 5 different tests in one day and you have shown enormous resilience. We know and understand that some of you have found the tests quite stressful. Your teachers have tried hard to help you prepare, and have come to breakfast with you on each day of the tests to help you feel supported.

 

There is however something that you need to know. The tests do not test everything that makes you the person you are and the person we have been trying to help you become here at our school. The tests are a ‘snapshot’ – like a photograph of a particular time and day. We all know that sometimes the results of a photograph are not what we would want them to be.

 

The tests only look at reading, grammar, punctuation and spelling and mathematics. They don’t look at the way you have developed as a caring person. They don’t show the gold cards and commendations. They don’t identify the sports activities or choir activities you may have taken part in.  They don’t recognise that you may be really good at art or speak two languages at home. They do not show you are brilliant at dancing or making someone laugh, or caring enough to look after someone when they are sad. They won’t show that you can be trusted or that you always try your best even when the work is tough.

 

The levels you get will help to tell your secondary school something about you, but remember there is a lot more to you than that. You are special. We know it; your families know it and you need to remember it. Each of you has something unique to offer the world and that can’t just be measured in levels.

 

So, well done for getting the tests done, feel proud of your achievement, but remember, there is a lot more to you as a person than the ‘snapshots’ taken over these four busy days.
