Learning throughout primary school is a journey and we carefully design our curriculum here to ensure children build on their knowledge and skills each year. We assess children regularly to check understanding and adapt planning to correct misconceptions and fill gaps in learning.
At the end of each key stage, children are assessed and a summary made about their attainment against other children of the same age in the country. These tests measure knowledge and understanding in the core subjects; reading, writing, maths, grammar/punctuation and spelling. This year SATS take place week beginning 8th May.
We continue our rounded and broad curriculum in year 6 and, although we prepare children with test techniques, do not prime or boost them for the tests they will undertake. However, some of the content in the test is from years 3, 4 and 5 and so we do support them to do revision of topics that will be covered.
You can help them with this. We have CGP revision guides and work books for them to do as homework. The revision guides will be on loan to you but the workbooks are for your children to keep. Therefore, we ask for a contribution of £5 for them. This is payable via Squid.
