Dear Parents/Carers,

During SATs week, we will be running a breakfast club from 8:30am. This will ensure that all children have eaten breakfast and enjoyed a calm, relaxed start to the day with their friends.

Please ensure that your child enjoys a good night’s sleep before every test day.

Writing

Writing is teacher assessed at the end of KS2. Because of this, we will be completing a number of pieces of writing over the next few weeks. The writing will based upon the book ‘The Sleeper and The Spindle’, written by Neil Gaiman and illustrated by Chris Riddell.

Homework

Thank you for helping your child to complete the test papers over the holidays.  Regular homework will be given in Reading, Writing and Maths in the lead up to SATs. This homework will allow children to revise and practise important elements of these subjects. Please could you help your child to organise themselves and complete these pieces of homework to a high standard.  It may also be helpful for children to access education city online to practise and prepare for the SATs.
