SATs are standardised assessment tests administered by primary schools in England to children in Year 2 and Year 6 to check their educational progress. We will have a meeting early next year to discuss what is required and how we can work together to support the children and get them ready for these assessments.
Reading is a huge focus this year and we will be encouraging the children to read daily. Please read with your child everyday even if it is a couple of pages, the back of a cereal box, even the subtitles of their favourite TV show!! Reading has a huge impact on your children's learning and development. It stimulates their imagination and expands their understanding of the world. Read read read!
