During the Spring term parents evenings Mr Marle will give parents and carers details about assessment at the end of Key Stage 2 in the new curriculum. To see a power point presentation on Y6 SATs please click here.  Parents have also asked for more information and a glossary of terms used in the "SPAG tests" (spelling, punctuation and grammar).

Revision should be little and often

Try to stick to 20 minutes at a time, take regular breaks and ask for help if you are struggling. 

Ask for help

Whether you are finding work difficult or just want someone to test you or check your understanding, asking for help is really important

Rest and relaxation is just as important as revision

Make sure you get enough sleep and enjoy some “fun time” every day.

Eat well

Rewarding yourself with a treat like chocolate or some sweets after working hard is great but remember to have a balanced diet with lots of fresh fruit and vegetables and always try to eat breakfast as this will give you energy throughout the day!


Top tips for parents:

Use the study guides to support your child

Encourage your child to explain his/her thinking

If your child continues to struggle after being given help, tell them to speak to their teacher who will be happy to provide further help

Teach your child good studying habits e.g. working in a quiet place, asking when stuck, taking a break etc   Reward / Praise your child for persisting with the homework

Talk through questions with your child.  If the child is confident, you could make the question into a word problem.
