    We found out last week.

    Probably going to have science five afternoons a week and booster science lunchtime clubs three days a week. Will send at least two science homeworks a week now as well.
  2. We've been selected too... it's annoying but just gives us an excuse for lots of practical science to 'revise'.
    We won't be doing boosters though - want the children to do as well as they can and to be prepared, but we're going to do it in a way that's fun for them and doesn't eat in to their 'free time'.

    I am shocked that anyone would believe I was telling the truth. Lunchtime booster science! Not my cup of tea.

    I will be carrying on with my normal two hours a week.

    I'd admit to my own stupidity, but I'm afraid it just isn't so. Had I looked more closely at your username, I might have thought more about it. But sadly, such a response doesn't seem beyond possibility to me.
    How sad.
    But I apologise for any sleight, entirely unintended I assure you [​IMG]
  5. Don't sweat over too much revision. We were selected last year and children found the questions so ridiculously easy they thought it was a trick! Example: Showed children a picture of a sieve and asked them to name the piece of equipment!

    Aren't the science tests only used to oversee how schools are getting on? I didn't think the results were published?

    We're having a science camp after the SATs to go through everything in a fun way and then doing optionals lol
  7. We found out today - in fact i've just logged on to here to see if there was a thread.

    I'm not going to do anything different to be honest.
