How you can help your child during the Easter break • Make sure they get lots of fresh air, play and sleep. • Don’t make revising a big issue - we will revise in school in the 3 to 4 weeks before the Easter holidays and top up afterwards. • Short 15-20 minute revision sessions a couple of times a day are usually most effective. • Practise spellings, times and division facts, key maths facts, read together and question for understanding
How you can help your child during SATs week • Make sure they get enough sleep. • Make sure they eat breakfast. • Encourage them to ask us if they are unsure about anything. • Explain that the SATs are a way of showing what they know. • Re-assure them that THEY CAN’T FAIL SATs! – they should aim to do their best on the day.
