Why ARE we Here today?

  • To further strengthen the parent and school partnership.

  • To identify ways we can help our children at Ferndale to achieve their full potential.

  • To support our children on their academic journey through looking closely at the SATs requirements in year 2.

  • To aim to achieve above average progress in all areas this academic year.

Why ARE we Here today?

  • To ensure that you are aware of what your child needs to be able to achieve by the end of key stage 1

  • To help you to support your child at home

  • To answer any questions you may have about this academic year

Why is year 2 important?

  • Year 2 marks the end of Key Stage 1 and therefore it is essential that your children within this year become prepared for KS2.

  • For this reason the levels your child achieves at the end of key stage 1 are very important.

Key Stage 1 assessments

  • We will look at levels in writing

  • Phonics screening test in year 1

  • SATsquestions that the children need to be able to answer.

  • The overall level given to your child at the end of year 2 will depend on teacher assessment.

  • There will also be SATS tests in May – however the final result depends on what the child has shown the teacher throughout the year.

What are the expected levels?


  • Looking at writing

  • There are examples of L3, L2A, L2B, L2C and L1A writing.

  • The children complete a short (25 minutes) and long (45 minutes) writing task

  • We look at punctuation, how they describe and explain, spelling, handwriting is also judged.

  • Maths questions, as the paper progresses it becomes more challenging.

  • There are differentiated papers and the children will sit which paper best suits their ability

  • During the test the children can have resources to help them and teachers can read the questions

  • There are L2 and L3 comprehension papers for you to look through.

  • We will be giving out regular practise questions this term to get the children prepared for May.

  • Some children will read individually to their teacher

  • The teacher will decide which test is most suited to your child

Year 1 Phonics Test

  • All Year 1 children will take the test

  • It is completed on a 1:1 basis with their teacher, in a relaxed and familiar environment

  • If the child doesn’t reach the national pass rate set by the government, they have to re take the test in Year 2

Phonics test in Year One

  • Takes place in June

  • Children have to read 40 words

  • 20 real words (green words)

  • 20 are made up ‘nonsense’ words

  • not all children will pass however, the phonics scheme will continue in Year Two and their progress monitored.

Try not to worry!

  • Firstly, don’t worry!

  • In our experience the vast majority of children are unaware that the SATs tasks and tests are even taking place.

  • They are always done in familiar surroundings, with familiar people (more often than not the class teacher) and in small groups.

  • If the child doesn’t make the expected levels, they don’t have to re sit the tests.

research shows children perform best if...

  • Good attendance

  • On time for school

  • Completing homework

  • Continued parental support

  • The children are motivated and focused

What can you do aThome?

  • Continue with reading and asking questions about the story;

  • Encourage the children to read different texts;

  • Make number problems a part of every day life.

  • Encourage children to write interesting stories.

  • Complete all homework set.
