As you are aware, SATs testing is taking place in the week beginning Monday 14th of May for Year 6 pupils.
This comprises of several tests:
Monday 14th of May – Grammar and Spelling tests
Tuesday 15th of May – Reading Test
Wednesday 16th of May – Arithmetic paper and Reasoning Test 1
Thursday 17th of May – Reasoning Test 2
There will be a parent meeting to explain procedures and give further details on Thursday 24th of April at 3pm in the Junior hall. It is important that parents attend so that you are fully aware of what is expected of your child.
Teacher Training day
Year 6 children will also be required to attend school for extra revision during the Teacher Training Day on Thursday 3rd of May. This will be for the morning only; therefore, children will need to be collected at 12pm. This is to ensure that our children have the most revision time they can.
How can you help?
During this time of year, it is really important that children remain calm, have a focused and positive attitude and try their very best. It is important that they eat healthily, get enough sleep, drink plenty of water and complete any homework they are given. As a school, we will be positively encouraging children to try to do their best and your support in this is vital.
During the SATs Testing week, breakfast club will be provided for all Year 6 pupils, free of charge, from Monday morning to Thursday morning. This will be a chance for the children to talk to their friends and teachers about their tests, and hopefully discuss any worries and concerns. Children can arrive at school at 8am. Breakfast club will close at 8.30am.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to speak to a member of the Year 6 team.
Many thanks for your continued support,
Assistant Head Teacher for Year 6
