Over the last two weeks, most children have sat the 2016 sample SATs papers in Reading Comprehension, Maths (arithmetic and two reasoning papers) and GPS - Grammar, Punctuation & Spelling - which takes the form of a spelling test and a longer paper focusing on grammar and punctuation.  Every child will be sent home this week with the papers they have worked on.  We have gone through these together in class and the children are aware of their grades.  We are focusing on the progress they have made since last time, rather than how high their scores are.  Over half term, please take the time to look through the papers together, talking through any areas of difficulty and to correcting the work where possible.    

The mark schemes for Reading, Maths and GPS are attached below, in case you need to refer to them.  The reading booklet itself, containing the comprehension texts, can be found at: http://www.satspapers.org.uk/Page.aspx?TId=5  Just scroll down to 2016 Sample and look for the file called 'Space Tourism, Giants, The Lost World'.  


Half term homework can also be found below (see 01. February Half Term Homework). 


In Literacy lessons, the children are staring to look at autobiographies.  Parents - they may come home asking lots of questions about their early childhood and asking to look at baby photos.  Have a fun trip down memory lane!  

Just a gentle, but important, reminder that children need to come to school with a green biro and a glue stick in their pencil cases.  Please encourage your child to look after the pen and pencil they are given and to make sure they do not get left at home.  Thank you for your co-operation.   

Year 6 P.E days will continue to be Wednesday and Thursday this term - please remember to bring in your kit, including a navy blue track suit for the colder weather.   Please remember your coat, hat and gloves to keep you warm on the playground.
 
Parents, please take the time to watch the 'Video Guide to the 2018 SAT tests' which has been updated from the 2017 version on our Year Group page.  
 

Important dates:

Mon 12th - Fri 16th Feb:  Half Term 

Have a lovely weekend,
Mrs Dodsworth, Mrs Pink and Mrs Wilson.
