Title: January 2014


1
Year 6
Parents' SATs Meeting
January 2014
2
Aims of the session
  • To share important information about KS2 SATs
  • To answer any questions about KS2 SATs
  • Discuss / share ideas about how you as a parent
    can help your child at home

3
What are KS2 SATs?
  • Standard Assessment Tests
  • All children have to be tested before they go to
    high school
  • Provide assessment information for high schools
  • Purpose assign National Curriculum levels to
    children before they leave primary school

4
What level should Y6 children be at?
  • Level 2 these children will not be entered for
    the tests
  • Level 3 below age related expectation
  • Level 4 age related expectation ( this is now a
    4B )
  • Level 5 above age related expectation

5
What other information do high schools want?
  • SATs results
  • Teacher assessments
  • Tests administered by the high schools
  • It varies according to which high school your
    child is going to

6
What does teacher assessment involve, and is it
different from testing?
  • Teacher assessment draws together everything the
    teacher or teachers know about a child, including
    observations, marked work and school assessments.
  • Teacher assessment is not a snapshot like tests
    and is therefore more reliable.
  • There can be a difference between teacher
    assessment results and test levels.
  • Teacher assessment only, is used for children who
    work below level 3 (children who dont do the
    SATs).

7
How is SATs week organised?
  • A timetable is issued to school, telling us on
    which days/sessions tests must be administered.
  • All children must sit the tests at the same time.
  • Test papers can only be opened 1 hour before the
    tests begin.
  • Tests are completed in classrooms, with any
    displays that may help covered over.
  • Children are divided into groups for test
    administration to ensure they are properly
    supported and feel secure.

How can parents help?
  • The best help is interest taken in learning and
    progress.
  • Supporting homework.
  • Good communication between the school and home.

English SATs
English SATs consist of
  • A reading test
  • A grammar, punctuation and spelling test

    then moderated by the local Authority )

THE READING TEST 50 MARKS 1 hour
Usually three different text types however, this
is changing this year.
1 mark to 3 marks for a question
Biggest weighting retrieval and inference
13
  • There are 4 main types of questions on the
    reading paper
  • Literal answer is there in the text
  • Deductive look for clues
  • Inferential read between the lines
  • Authorial intent e.g. why does an author use a
    particular word

14
Sentence from A Day in the English Countryside
As the afternoon light started to fade, the cow
stopped eating grass, stood instead with its head
over the gate and gazed expectantly down the lane.
  1. How light was it? (Literal)
  2. What three things did the cow do? (Literal)
  3. What time of day was it? (Deductive)
  4. Where was the cow? (Deductive)
  5. What do you think the cow was expecting?
    (Inferential)
  6. What strategies does the writer use to give the
    reader so much information in a single sentence?
    (Authorial intent)

15
How can parents help with reading?
  • Ensure your child reads every night!
  • Encourage them to read fiction and non-fiction.
  • Try to listen to your child read and ask them
    questions about the text.
  • Help them with the different skills of reading
    especially skim reading where they are looking
    for key words in the text.
  • Speed reading
  • Reading homework

16

17
How can parents help with writing?
  • Again, reading a variety of texts the more
    children read, the more familiar they become with
    different text types
  • Reading homework text analysis
  • Writing homework is very rare - but getting
    your child to write as much as possible even
    shopping lists help
  • Spelling spelling lists / rules every week
    make sure your child knows the high frequency
    words
  • Grammar and punctuation homework work with your
