Year 6 SATS advice

    Hello ladies and gentlemen,

    Just wondered what you were all doing for your literacy SATs prep. Last year I spent the run up the tests doing practice reading tests in guided reading and practice papers in grammar along with lessons to plug gaps.

    However, this year I've been told that I need more in books and working through papers aren't classed as suitable lessons. Any ideas?

    Thanks

    By that argument, driving instructors shouldn't have people driving round the roads when they're about to take a test.

    If you have been teaching the class since September, you should have a good idea of their strengths and weaknesses. So teach them the things they don't yet know or aren't too sure about.

    I have to agree that spending lesson time doing heaps of tests isn't really the best teaching and learning. Yes, they need the odd one or two, to know what the tests are like and how to work to time, but nothing more than that.

    As far as I know they haven't made many examples of tests available, just a few sets? Please tell me if I'm wrong?
