We have given all Year Six children this afternoon a pack of practice SATs papers. Usually, we encourage parents at our October parents’ evening to purchase these but as the parents’ evening appointments were by telephone, we thought it more straightforward, and worthwhile, for us to purchase them ourselves and distribute them to the children free of charge.
I recommend parents look after them on behalf of the children, and set them a paper perhaps once a week, and mark it with them. (Answers are provided).
The children usually quite enjoy doing them, especially when they have their parents’ attention marking them together, and they tend to take pride in their improving scores over time.
Happy Christmas, Year Six!
