easter-clipart-Free-easter-pictures-clipart-bestHello!

This is the first real post on our SATs blog which is intended to help you become even more confident about SATs as we get closer to May. We have been working really hard for ages, so I am confident you’ll all do brilliantly.

Over the Easter holidays, it would be good if you can keep things ticking over.

Here are the things I think you should be doing:

  1. Be proud of the impressively mature way in which you have been preparing for SATs in school. I have (very genuinely) been very proud of all of you. It is clear that you want to do the best you can and I know that you should already be proud of your great efforts. Let’s try to keep things ticking over during the Easter holidays so we can come back still feeling confident and ready for action!
  2. Have fun! Do some other things as well.
  3. Keep reading. Make sure that you do 20-30 (-ish) minutes reading every day. Go to the (mobile) library, if you have run out of books.
  4. Have fun! Do some other things as well.
  5. Get in touch if you have forgotten a password. Email me using password@crossdaleschool.com  – I will try to reply within a day or two.
  6. Keep working on the MyMaths activities I have set for you. Remember that these have been chosen to help with the areas that you have found more challenging in the recent tests. Do the lessons! Play the games too!
