Because of the Key Stage 2 assessments, teaching Year 6 can seem daunting. This half day course is an early chance for teachers new to Year 6 to prepare for the year ahead. We will explore the format of the tests and the domains that they are attempting to assess. The course will also include an exploration of the key messages from last year’s tests. Teachers will leave with a range of practical strategies and a full understanding of how to prepare pupils for this whilst still retaining a creative classroom where pupils thoroughly enjoy learning.

During the session course participants will:

  • Become familiar with the end of KS2 reading, maths and grammar SATs and writing assessment
  • Understand how to prepare pupils for these
  • Know a range of practical approaches to teaching year 6 successfully
