What are the children

Literacy – reading, writing and grammar,
punctuation & spelling
From last year children’s levels for writing will be
teacher assessed. However, some schools will
be selected for sample testing. We were one of
these schools two years ago.
 Numeracy – mental maths and written methods
(both now non-calculator use)
 Science is not tested; apart from in a sample of
selected schools; we were selected in a
previous year for this.

 Level 6 is where a child is particularly
gifted.
The levels are sub-divided into categories in
some cases:
 4c is the lower end of level 4;
 4b is a middle level 4;
 4a is the higher end of level 4

How can you support your
child?
• Support them at home through working with
them to complete homework and provide them
with a quiet environment and timed conditions to
complete their practice SATs papers.
• Retain a positive atmosphere at home, refraining
from applying pressure, but instead having
confidence in their abilities.
• Encouraging them to do revision using various
revision sites and through the use of revision
books.
