SATs Assessments May 2022 

Whilst we want every child taking this year’s SATS to achieve their very best, and we will prepare them accordingly, we also cannot emphasise enough how important it is that they remain stress-free and relaxed. No child’s future will be decided by 4 hours of assessments in May, and all content assessed has already been learnt between Year 2 and Year 6. There is nothing for the children to worry about!

Home Learning - Summer Term


Reading It is vital that children keep reading at home, not only for their future academic success, but also as a means of escape and pleasure. Home reading tasks will be given out on a Monday, to be returned the following Monday. These regular tasks will begin on 7th March as the first week’s work is dedicated to World Book Day which is on Thursday 3rd March. Guided Reading tasks happen daily in school (Mon-Thu) and feature a range of activities from sharing and discussing class books, through to practising our independent comprehension skills.


This half-term, spellings will be given out and tested on a Friday. There will be an ‘unseen’ test during the first week to test the class on previous words.


Please encourage children to log in to Times Tables Rock Stars regularly to improve their recollection and speed. We have set a weekly home learning challenge to complete 20 minutes of ‘Studio” time each week as this is the game mode which records their average times per question and gives us some fantastic data regarding strengths and areas to improve. Particularly popular is the “Rock Slam” game mode where children can compete against each other… and the teachers!
