SATs Week 2022
The SATs week this year runs from Monday 9th May to Thursday 12th May. During this time, the year 6 children are invited to come into school at 8.30am. We will provide a ‘breakfast club’, which will allow the children to relax in school surroundings before they take their assessments.
If you do not wish to send your child in for breakfast, please ensure they are here by 9am. We are taking the assessments at 9.30am each day and it is important that your child does not feel rushed or stressed by coming into school late.
During the SATs week, all children must attend unless they are very poorly. If your child is too unwell to attend school (e.g. vomiting) then please inform us as soon as possible. It is important that they do not interact with any other year 6 children during the time.
The timetable of the week is as follows:
Monday 9th May – Grammar and Punctuation paper (45 minutes) and Spelling paper (15 minutes)
Tuesday 10th May – Reading (60 minutes)
Wednesday 11th May – Arithmetic (30 minutes) and Reasoning 2 (40 minutes)
Thursday 12th May – Reasoning 3 (40 minutes)
It would be appreciated if you could encourage your children to practise for their assessments by using the CGP books we have provided.
Thank you for your continued support.
We would like to invite you to a virtual meeting about Year 6 SATs on Thursday 3rd February at 4pm. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the SATs week in May, where we will give information about the structure of the week and how you can help your child to prepare for the assessments. The meeting will also give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
Your child is also welcome to attend the meeting, as this will allow them to find out some more information. We will also be discussing the work the children can do at home in the run up to the tests.
As this is a virtual meeting, the link will be emailed out to yourselves next week via ParentMail.
We look forward to seeing you on 3rd February.
Miss Grey and Miss Joseph
