Family Learning Sessions

Family Learning sessions will continue after half-term. To make the sessions as meaningful and beneficial as possible, can you please let me know what you would like the sessions to focus on by jotting some suggestions below and returning to school. I will then compile a list of weekly events and inform you of the dates when the sessions will run.

Family Learning Sessions

Thank you to the parents and grandparents who attended the Family Learning sessions linked to the National Tests. Now the tests are over, I know lots of parents were keen to continue attending the sessions. To make the sessions as meaningful and beneficial as possible, can you please let me know what you would like the sessions to focus on by jotting some suggestions below. I will then compile a list of weekly events and inform you of the dates when the sessions will run.

Family Learning sessions linked to National Tests

A quick reminder we will be continuing to hold sessions to support children in the lead up to the National Tests every Thursday afternoon. This week, the focus will be linked to the Procedural test. The children will be withdrawn from class to work with their parents/carers to help to alleviate the stress of the tests.

Lower School session (Years 3 & 4): Numerical Reasoning: 1:15pm – 2pm

Upper School session (Years 5 & 6): Fractions, Percentages and Decimals: 2:15pm – 3pm

National Tests – Dates

As parents will be aware, next week we will see the start of the annual ‘National Tests’. The dates of each test can be seen in the table below and all tests will take place during the morning:

Date Test Year Group
Wednesday 2nd May Reading 3, 4, 5 & 6
Thursday 3rd May Mathematics: Numerical Reasoning 3 & 4
Friday 4th May Mathematics: Numerical Reasoning 5 & 6
Tuesday 8th May Mathematics: Procedural 3, 4, 5 & 6

Although the National Tests are important in tracking the progress of the pupils, all staff take great care to ensure that children feel as little stress as they possibly can about taking the tests. The message we give to the children is that we want them to ‘try their best’. Please contact the school if you feel your child is feeling overly anxious about taking the tests and you would like us to provide extra support.

It would be very much appreciated if children can have a good breakfast and an early night’s sleep the night before each of the tests. This will help the children to do as well as they possibly can on each day.
