  1. With Monday fast approaching - just thought I would wish everyone Good Luck for the impending SATs/NCTs - hopefully they will get something fun to read, interesting to write about and maths questions that give them a chance to shine rather than looked confused!!! [​IMG]

    I had a nightmare last night. My lot handed all their writing papers in and they were blank! I asked them why and they said the pens didn't work but they didn't want to tell me as they thought I would be upset[​IMG]
    I think I'm stressing out!

    Good Luck to everyone too!

    I've got supply for the next two weeks ........ in a year 6 class!
    Need to read up the arrangements - it's a few years since I did SATs with a class of my own!
  5. Me too!!! Though in mine the children were given a playscript to do.... let's hope that nightmare doesn't become real!

    LOL We never got as far as the SATs in mine. Other year 6 teacher and I were too busy fretting about desks and papers. Then realised it was too late to do the tests and we'd missed them!

    I dreamt we were given an oral debate - that the test format had changed and nobody had told me. Was awful.
  8. I had a dream the writing papers were in Spanish! Moi... stressed?! Good luck to everyone!
  9. OOO Ive had dreams too, thought I was odd!
    Mine was that when we opened the reading papers inside the cover were nothign but blank papers....the kids all just stared and when I phoned the exam board they said it was my fault, nothing could be done and all pupils would receive a 0.! I sat and cried in the office! LOL

    I'm beginning to think I've been cloned several times! Either that or there's something they give you when you teach year 6 that makes you become slightly loopy and stress of stupid things!

    LOLOLOLOL flickaz. I tell my class that I get paid to be completely loopy! Some of the more gullible ones believe that the HT asks at interview if you are completely mad and if you say yes you get the job, if you say no then you don't.
    Bless them.
  13. I teach Year 6 and we've got OFSTED on Tues and Wed. Give me some sympathy and wish me luck please!!! :)
  14. Oh my goodness. Big good luck! xx
  15. oh my word! double good luck for the week ahead!

    Yeps double luck to you lagerlover...Think you might need something stronger than lager this week!
  20. Hey Lager Lover

    I had OfSTED in during SAT's week in my first year of doing SAT tests. I thought it was awful until I realised they were going to leave me alone! They went through my books whilst I was doing tests and chatted with my kids informally at lunchtime/breaktime about how they had prepared for tests.

    I did circle times after each test due to get the worries out in the open and then did very practical, hands on lessons in the afternoons such as rounders! I hope you have an easy a ride as I did!! Good luck!
