21 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.
22 research shows children perform best if... Good attendanceOn time for schoolCompleting homeworkContinued parental supportThe children are motivated and focused
23 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.Encourage children to write interesting stories.Complete all homework set.Mention how this term the homework will be SATs focussed.
