Week 6 - wc12Oct20



This week in year 2, we have been practising our SATs tests. These are kept quite low key, although there are certain 'rules' we have to follow. The children do have to be quiet whilst taking them and do sit separately so we can get an accurate assessment of each individual child. This is the first time the children have seen these tests but they managed really well. The results from these tests back up our teacher assessment of where each child is with their learning. It helps us as teachers identify gaps in knowledge and skills, which we can then provide for during another lesson. There are 6 tests in total and these are as follows;

Maths mental arithmetic paper 1

Maths reasoning paper 2

Reading paper 1

Reading paper 2

Spellings paper 1

Spelling, punctuation and grammar paper 2

The children will practise these papers each half term and have parts of the tests included in daily lessons. The year 2 children will undertake the official SATs tests in May 2021, so we have lots of time to practise. There are lots of resources online that can be used to help your child but if you require anything in particular, please see me (Miss Langley).
