KS1 Assessment & SATs Workshop

Parents and Carers of Year 2 children came along to a KS1 workshop based on assessment and SATs.  We explained how assessment was organised in Year 2 and shared sample questions for the reading and maths papers.  We also discussed how parents could support children at home and gave out useful websites for help with spellings, maths and games.

Afterwards, parents and carers commented:

"Thank you for showing me the methods. I can help my child at home with their adding."

"I feel more confident knowing how to help my daughter now".
