Today we sat the English Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar Test (Paper 1) and the spelling (Paper 2) in preparation for the SATs in May. It is a chance to see what is going well and the areas for development. It also gives us all a chance to get a feel of the test papers again. It has been a while since January and our Mocks.
To make the papers more manageable, we have split the English and maths papers over two weeks.All papers will be finished by break time. As usual, we will have our in class warm up before we begin.
On Thursday morning, we will sit the reading comprehension.
Next Wednesday and Thursday we will sit the maths papers in the correct order.
Wednesday: Arithmetic (Paper 1) 30 minutes and Problem Solving and Reasoning (Paper 2) 40 minutes
Thursday: Problem Solving and Reasoning (Paper 3) 40 minutes
Once all the papers are marked, we will share the results against the targets just like we did in the previous papers. By doing the papers before Easter, we will have plenty of time to reflect in class and within smaller groups.
It's been wonderful to see the children working together and helping each other with revision. If you would like to bring a revision book to school, you are welcome to do so.
Good luck Year 6. You are nearly there and its wonderful to see your progress since September.
