Getting ready for SATs

It is never too early to begin to prepare for SATs. Look at the information below for ideas!

In May the children in Year 6 will take their SATs.  Throughout the year they will be supported by the adults in their class.  In support of this we ask that parents/carers also help with the child's learning.

We hope you find the resources useful.  If you want any additional information or have any questions at all – just contact any member of the year 5/6 team who will be happy to help.
