Just asking an honest question? Have childrens levels of writing and maths improved with the introduction of the newer SAT's. I know year 6 teachers work hard to raise the levels, and almost a whole year is spent in readying them in year 6 ( a bitter complaint of my 11 year old grandchild who just turned off the learning, as it was Maths and English all morning in her school, and then catch up lessons in dinner time if needed. Do we still teach children other areas of learning? I am interested to know if secondary teachers have noticed improvement?
