Thought for the Week
Tuesday 9th May
For many, the words ‘exam’ and ‘assessment’ bring back the memories of revision timetables and sitting in school halls with heart pounding as you wait for the instruction, “You may begin!” That phrase itself may instil dread. For others it is a ‘time to shine’ and they turn the page over with excitement to see the questions.
It can be an especially stressful time for children/young people who find written tests a challenge. How can a few minutes/hours in a school hall answering some generic questions actually assess all that you can do? All that you are good at? It can’t!
This week is SATS week in schools with pupils in Year Six, and our thoughts turn to the children sitting the tests over the next four days, as well as to the staff in the schools and the families who have supported them so far in their learning.
It takes courage to keep focused and to try to do your best under ‘test conditions’, but we encourage you!
And also offer the encouragement and wise reflections of the young people in this ‘You are more than a Score’ two minute YouTube video.
We offer you the words of Kristene DiMarco in this worship song
Take courage, my heart!
Stay steadfast, my soul!
He’s in the waiting, He’s in the waiting!
Hold on to your hope, as your triumph unfolds.
He’s never failing, He’s never failing!
“But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.”
2 Chronicles 15:7
“Nothing is impossible, the word itself says I’m possible!”
