Key Stage One SATS question - Writing and Reading Tests

Discussion in 'Primary' started by raebarton, Mar 22, 2009.

  1. Would it be possible to also get a copy of your wonderfully innovative ideas - am using the 2009 tests and was planning to carry out writing tasks as part of a themed day/week....
    Did you link your character description in with same theme: was considering using Owl that was afraid of the dark, though most people I've spoken to have gone for Gruffalo!!!
    Don't suppose you or anyone else has booklists for level 1 and 2 tasks for 2007 and 2008 to hand or know where I might come across these on the web?

  2. Would it be possible for me to have a copy of your planning? Sounds GREAT !


  3. I am also a new teacher to year 2 and would really appreciate a copy of your planning. Your ideas sound fantastic.
    Many thanks
  4. If you don't mind I would also really appreciate looking at a copy of your planning - sounds like you made the topic really interesting for your class.
    Many Thanks
    I was also wondering what book people are thinking of using for the short writing task - character description?!
  5. I will be doing the KS1 SATs after the break. Would appreciate having a look at your planning to see what you've done. You done both the 2009 writing tasks?
    My email is kladenburg@gmail.com
    Many thanks
  6. Any chance of jumping this train? I'd love a peek at your plans if possible. Am struggling to think of how to organise this effectively.
    Many thanks.
  7. Me too if possible? Thanks so much :)
  8. I'm also an NQT in year 2 and have ran out of interesting ideas. I would appreciate too if possible?!
    Thanks in advance x x x
  9. I'm looking at doing this after Easter then doing the 2009 writing task later in the summer. Any chance I could have a copy of your planning and a llist of any resources you'd suggest making / buying etc??

    Thank you so much

  10. Hi has anybody got any ideas or planning for the writing for year 2 2009 sat's task on character descriptions.?I'm really struggling.

  12. I love your ideas... I am teaching yr 2 for the first time and would be grateful for any help I can get... is there a chance you might let me see a copy of your planning for this task?
    my email is a_riglia@hotmail.com
    thanks in advance
  13. Hi all,

    I am a Y2 NQT and was wondering if you might share your planning with me too? I would be really grateful - Year 2 is hard enough without all this SATs pressure!

    Many thanks,
    My email is babes786@live.co.uk
  14. I'm confused.
    Are you all leading up to the actual SATs test with a whole week of addressing it? How much are you allowed to relate to the actual content of the test?
  15. We are down playing the whole SATs thing - personally, I find that calm kids = better results (or rather, more accurate results).
    Can I be cheeky and ask for a copy of that planning too? Would love to see how you are leading into nocturnal animals. I am going to use the Gruffalo as my 'character', as I am just starting stories by the same author and using Julia MacDonald.

    Yeah! I'm confused too. I thought we were meant to leave about a week before the SATs before using same genre and topics.
  17. Hi I was wondering whether it would be possible to send me a copy of your planning based on the Night-time report that you have just done with your Year 2's. Your lessons sound great and as a Year 2 teacher, I am struggling to see how I can intergrate this task into our planning, as our topic is Island Adventure! Thank you for your time, this would be greatly appreciated! My email is: g.older1@ntlworld.com
    Thank you again!
    Yours faithfully
