Year 6 - KS2 SATS Update

Dear Year 6 Parent/Carer,

In a couple of weeks (w/c Monday 13th May), Year 6 children will be sitting their end of KS2 SATs. As this can be a slightly more stressful time for the children, we are organising an Early Morning Social Club on the mornings of the tests (Monday to Thursday). 

This will begin at 8.35am in Acacia class and we would like to invite the children in as close to this time as possible. They will be given a drink and a biscuit and will have the chance to chat with their friends and relax before we begin each morning. This will hopefully create a calm and positive start for the children and enable them to do their very best. Please be aware that only the main Parsonage Road gates will be open before 08:40.

Maths Mentors will still be required in Morning Maths this week but will be released in time to go to the Social Club.

In addition to this, we would like to request that you help your child to prepare by having an early night (during the weekend preceding the SATs and the night before each test) and have a good, nutritious breakfast before school to help keep up their energy levels throughout the morning. They will also need to have time to unwind each evening to feel rested and ready for the next day. Children are also permitted to bring in an extra snack to have after each test.

As a reminder, children may bring in water bottles (without any labels or writing) and should not be wearing any watches with alarms. School will provide all other materials needed.

The SATs will be taking place at the following times:


  • Monday 13th May - SPAG and Spelling Papers - starting at 9am
  • Tuesday 14th May - Reading Paper - starting at 9am
  • Wednesday 15th May - Maths Paper 1 followed by Maths Paper 2 - starting at 9am
  • Thursday 16th May - Maths Paper 3 - starting at 9am


Finally, we would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your continued support.

Yours faithfully,

Miss Murray and Mrs Bannister
Year 6 Class Teachers
