Pakefield Primary

Year 6 SATs Information

 SATs (Statutory Assessment Tests) are taken by primary schoolchildren to test their knowledge of the National Curriculum, as well as monitor the school's progress as a whole. SATs are taken to provide information about your child’s progress, in comparison to children of the same age, on a national basis. 

All Year 6 SAT tests will take place between Monday 11th and Friday 14th May 2020.

No absences will be authorised during this week and all children must be in school. 

 

Year 6 is a very important year for the children, and this page will offer resources, guidance and suggestions to support your child(ren) during their Year 6 journey. 

Thank you to everybody who attended our parent workshops.

Here are some top tips to support your child: 

  • Support and reassure your child that there is nothing to worry about and they should always just try their best. Praise and encourage!​ 
  • Ensure your child has the best possible attendance at school.​ 
  •  Support your child with any homework tasks. Homework imbeds what the children learn in class, so we would like homework to be completed on time. 
  •  If you wish to do a little extra ‘revision’ at home, you can play mental maths games, times table challenges, or practice spelling, and read with your child to aid their comprehension. 
  • Talk to your child about what they have learnt at school and what book(s) they are reading (the character, the plot, their opinion).​ 
  • Make sure your child has a good sleep and healthy breakfast every morning! 

Reading: 

  • Focus on developing an enjoyment and love of reading.​ Your child should read to an adult at least once a week – and reads a minimum of three times a week. Summaries are needed to be written in the Home/School Planner. 
  • Enjoy stories together – reading stories to your child at KS1 and KS2 is equally as important as listening to your child read.​ 
  • Look up definitions of words together – you could use a dictionary, the internet or an app on a phone or tablet.​ 
  • All reading is valuable – it doesn’t have to be just stories. Reading can involve anything from fiction and non-fiction, poetry, newspapers, magazines, football programmes, TV guides.​ 
  • Visit the local library - it’s free! 

 
Overall, we would like you to reassure your child(ren) that they should not be worried about the testing in May, and as long as they work hard and try their best, then they will have a successful year, no matter what.
