The Hungate Echo
Sherburn Hungate Weekly News - Summer Term 2 - Issue 6
A word from Mr Broom.
Firstly, thank you to our wonderful Friends of Hungate who put on a wonderful Summer Fair with the help of the children and staff. I'm sure you will agree that this year's fair was fabulous and we managed to raise almost £1500 for the school. Personally, I love it despite being absolutely drenched by sponges at the 'splat the teacher' stand. I know who everyone of you were who landed a sponge on my nose! Watch out!
Secondly, the KS2 SATs results came back this week and we are absolutely delighted with them. Here they are:
Reading - 92% (75% National Average)
Writing - 77% (78% National Average)
Maths - 96% (76% National Average)
Grammar, Punctuation & Spelling - 92% (78% National Average)
Thank you to all the staff who work hard with our wonderful year six children to produce the best results seen at Sherburn Hungate. I am so proud of each and everyone of our children and wish them all the very best for next week at high school.
Finally, we can also celebrate our attendance. This year, our attendance is 96.4%. This is above the national average and above last year's figure. Well done everyone. Let's build on it next year.
Enjoy the weekend. It's going to be a warm one and let's hope that England can snatch the third place medal in the world cup.
RWM Combined - 77% (64% National Average)
