Year 2 SATs
Dear Parent/Carer of Year 2 pupil,
As you may be aware, May is the month that our Year 2 pupils sit their end of Key Stage examinations – otherwise known as their SATs.
Our children have worked exceptionally hard for these tests and are ready and prepared to have a jolly good go at them. There may be butterflies in the tummies of our children but this just means that they care; and it is a great life skill to be able to overcome those feelings of nerves and anxiety and push through.
Please don’t be late
Miss Munnerley has worked very hard to plan for these tests being completed in a non-threatening, non-dramatic and calm manner. In fact, a lot of the school day will look the same for our Year 2 children but with some independent challenges thrown in.
We do need your help though with one important aspect – punctuality. Please ensure that your child is at school for the start of the school day at 8:55am every day.
Keep in touch with us
As the month of May progresses, there may be something you want us to be aware of or request support in helping your child in for their SATs tests. We can help. Please keep in touch with us via the School Office on 652 5124.
Please do not allow your child to miss time from their school day.
Unlike the Year 6 tests, we don’t have a published timetable as we want these tests to be as low-key as possible and simply part of normal school life. If your child does mention them, or appears anxious, please do reassure them that tests are a life skill and a very big part of school life. And to just try your best.
Any problems or concerns please contact the School Office on 652 5124. Thank you for your continued help and support and for preparing your child to be the best that they can be.
Mrs C Peace
