Year 6 have had a great Spring term: they had a visit from the Yorkshire Highway man; held some reptiles; and acted out a Victorian court case at Guildhall.
It is no secret that the Year 6 sats are upon us and, despite all the fun we have had, we have been working extremely hard to ensure that we are prepared for the tests.
Supporting Your Child
- Ask them what they've done at school and expect them to explain things to you in a step by step manner - it encourages logical thinking and is a great way to 'recap' the lesson.
- Encourage them to keep trying their hardest at school and at home because hard work pays off.
- Get them to summarise what the have read. Over a few days, you should get an idea of what their book is about. If they are a little vague they probably haven't been reading properly.
- Make sure they practise their spellings - they are tough but they are selected deliberately because they follow the rules year 6 are supposed to learn.
- Encourage your child to use the CGP books to revise at home - a few pages each night adds up to a lot over time.
- Go through basic calculations and times tables. Keeping these fresh will support your child enormously with speed in the sats.
