Why ARE we Here today? To further strengthen the parent and school partnership. To identify ways we can help our children at Ferndale to achieve their full potential. To support our children on their academic journey through looking closely at the SATs requirements in year 2. To aim to achieve above average progress in all areas this academic year.
Why ARE we Here today? To ensure that you are aware of what your child needs to be able to achieve by the end of key stage 1 To help you to support your child at home To answer any questions you may have about this academic year
Why is year 2 important? Year 2 marks the end of Key Stage 1 and therefore it is essential that your children within this year become prepared for KS2. For this reason the levels your child achieves at the end of key stage 1 are very important.
Key Stage 1 assessments We will look at levels in writing
Phonics screening test in year 1 SATs questions that the children need to be able to answer. The overall level given to your child at the end of year 2 will depend on teacher assessment. There will also be SATS tests in May – however the final result depends on what the child has shown the teacher throughout the year.
What are the expected levels?
Writing Looking at writing
There are examples of L3, L2A, L2B, L2C and L1A writing. The children complete a short (25 minutes) and long (45 minutes) writing task We look at punctuation, how they describe and explain, spelling, handwriting is also judged. There is a difference in the actual content and presentation of the writing.

Maths Maths questions, as the paper progresses it becomes more challenging. There are differentiated papers and the children will sit which paper best suits their ability During the test the children can have resources to help them and teachers can read the questions

READING There are L2 and L3 comprehension papers for you to look through. We will be giving out regular practise questions this term to get the children prepared for May. Some children will read individually to their teacher The teacher will decide which test is most suited to your child

Try not to worry! Firstly, don’t worry!
In our experience the vast majority of children are unaware that the SATs tasks and tests are even taking place. They are always done in familiar surroundings, with familiar people (more often than not the class teacher) and in small groups. If the child doesn’t make the expected levels, they don’t have to re sit the tests.
research shows children perform best if...
Good attendance On time for school Completing homework Continued parental support The children are motivated and focused
What can you do aT home? Continue with reading and asking questions about the story; Encourage the children to read different texts; Make number problems a part of every day life.
