Don’t stress- We are assessing progress all year remember SATs are just a piece in the jigsaw. Allow your child to read quietly to themselves and then discuss their understanding. Find opportunities for your child to use number in everyday problems. Encourage them to do some calculations in their head. Provide opportunities for independent writing encouraging them to write extended sentences and include a range of punctuation. Be particular about handwriting.
