Tips for Year 6 children for SATs

Year 6 children are sitting SATs tests this week

Year 6 children are sitting SATs tests this week

This week Year 6 children at Bells Farm are sitting their SATs tests.

SATs are national tests that children sit twice during their time at primary school – once after the end of Key Stage 1 (Year 2) and again at the end of Key Stage 2 (Year 6).

You can help your child at home in the following ways:
• Ensure children complete all homework/ test papers on the date they are required to, and offer your help if needed.
• Listen to your children read every evening, and question them on their understanding of the text.
• Test your children on their spellings (these are now an important part of the Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar test) and times tables, which are equally as important.
• Ensure children go to bed at a reasonable time (this may seem a strange request but tiredness really affects some children’s learning and we want them to have the best chance of achieving their full
potential).
• Keep time spent on electrical devices: play stations, T.Vs etc. to a minimum.

Below is a summary of SATs week:

All this week Year 6 children are able to come into school and have a healthy breakfast in preparation for all their hard work in SATs. This will be available every morning at 8.00am, and we look forward to seeing all the children there as this is an ideal way to eat, chat and relax before each paper is completed.
