SATs 2018

 

During the month of May, Year 6 children will sit for their SATs test. These will be held from Monday 14th May 2018 to Thursday 17th May 2018. The full timetable can be seen below.

 

To ensure that your child has the best possible support from you at home, please make sure that they:

  • Go to bed early and are sufficiently rested – this will ensure that they have plentiful energy stores to keep them powering on through test week.  
  • Eat a good, healthy breakfast – a healthy, hearty start to the day will boost their energy levels and keep them concentrating for longer.  
  • Come to school each and every day and be punctual – children must be in school every day and on time. This is particularly important during the test week as latecomers may miss the start of the tests.  
  • Stay hydrated – ensure you provide your child with a bottle of water – this will keep them alert and hydrated throughout test week.  
  • Talk to the children about the tests and their feelings - this will help relieve any worries or anxieties that they may be feeling. Children react differently when confronted with examinations – some are rearing to go, whilst others may have worries or nerves. Talking to your child will help you to better understand how they are feeling about the upcoming tests and you can support them emotionally.  
  • Complete homework tasks and revision activities together – this way you can see what we have been learning in class and can offer support and encouragement when it is most needed. Children rely on positive feedback and praise, so be plentiful with it.  
  • Most importantly, explain and remind children that the SATs tests are just one way of showing what children know. They are by no means a definitive indicator of intelligence! They are most definitely not the be all and end all to schooling! All that we ask is that children try their best – that is good enough for us!
