The SATs preparation workshop is ideal for Year 6 students who are due to sit their SATs in May. We focus on exam technique and provide hints and tips on answering questions. The children will work through the recently (2016) restructured practice papers. The teacher works on any problematic areas while also showing how exam questions are presented. Children can often find difficulty applying their knowledge to questions through not quite understanding what the question is asking them to do. We help them tackle this during the week.
The group size is capped at 6 so the children feel they are getting close attention. Although there is a serious element to the week, the workshop is delivered in such a way as to allow pupils to enjoy the sessions. The intention to make them they feel less pressured when it come to the real thing.
Ultimately, the workshop allows children to grow in confidence when faced with the papers.
