Class 12

Welcome to Class 12

 

Miss Lewis

 

Hi all, we are racing towards the end of the year and many, many functions. If anybody thought the summer term was relaxing for our year sixes, they were sadly mistaken. I have uploaded backing tracks, script and costume letter for Shakespeare Rocks!

 

You should have already received the costume letter. This week, we will understand exactly which 'extra' bits of costume your child will require as we 'block' the show.

 

Any questions...please ask!

Miss L x

Class Liturgies

 

We celebrate class liturgies every Tuesday, which are led by the children. They plan, rehearse and deliver them. As a school, we feel that children should be at the centre of their learning!

We use Talk 4 Writing to deliver our English teaching... it is an interactive and scaffolded approach to English which is having great results in school. For more info see the Curriculum page for English (also on the school website!

We have just started using our new handwriting scheme, which we hope will have a huge impact on our children's standards of presentation.

Maths

Maths 1


What are SATs?

All primary aged pupils in England are tested at the end of Key Stage 1 (year 2) and Key Stage 2 (year 6). Many schools run 'unofficial' optional SATs in years 3 to 5 as well.

Year 6 children take their tests on set dates in early May. Results are then submitted to the school's local authority and to parents by the end of the summer term.



Which subjects are covered? 

Year 6 children are tested in spelling, punctuation and grammar (known as the SPAG test), reading and maths (with 1 arithmetic and 2 'reasoning' tests). Their writing is now assessed by the teacher rather than formally tested and as of 2013. Currently, science is not tested through SATS but rather through our own assessments in school (from Rising Stars). 

Will I be told the results? 

Yes, by law parents must be given their children's results, broken down by subject, at the end of the summer term in years 2 and 6.

What sort of results will we be given?

At the end of year 6, the children will receive a scaled-score which we will then convert to let you know whether they have reached the expected standard for year 6 children.

It is essential to remember, though, that the progress of a child over their time in school is what is really important, both academically and personally. Not all children will reach the expected standard and some should be achieving a greater depth of learning.

 

So how much do SATs matter for my year 6 child? 

We'd love to say they don't have any significance but some secondary schools base their year 7 sets on children's year 6 scores (others carry out their own testing). But remember that sets can and do change throughout secondary school, so even if your son or daughter ends up lower than you expected, they might move up later on.

 

Because we recognise the significance of early intervention for children who will benefit from it, we have already timetabled some very focussed catch up and extension sessions to give all children the very best chance of fulfilling their potential. These will start later this term.

First and foremost, SATs are there to help parents get a feel for how their child is progressing and for the education officials to assess how schools are doing. And, of course, remember that your child's year 6 SATs will NOT end up on their CV or job applications when they're grown-ups - they aren't worth you or them losing sleep over!
