Thank you to Helen Bowen and colleagues for a great day.
Having a chat with colleagues about the up-coming maths, English and science SATs in a week or two, we all agreed that results often improve when we take the emphasis OFF preparing for tests. It means that we end up with a focus on quality teaching throughout the whole year.
If we do want children to feel confident though, i agree that we need to give them some support in the processes.
Did you know that past papers for maths, English and science tests, back to 2005, are available in places like THIS?
Nowadays, it is more the Untied, rather than the United, Kingdom. Wales and Scotland don’t have a testing time ahead. I also value the new curriculum in Wales, and the changes in the Scottish Curriculum for Excellence.
The moon plays a frequent visit to SATs papers. Try out this little tester
Remember that this cycle goes ANTI – clockwise
