Teacher: Mr Vokes
Teaching and learning in Year 6 at Swanton Morley VC Primary School follows the National Curriculum (2014) programme of study for Key Stage 2. Further information about the National Curriculum in Key Stage 2 can be found on the Department for Education web site.
2019 Key Stage 2 Tests (SATs)
During the course of the year Mr Vokes’ class will be preparing for their SATs in May. The 2019 tests are highly likely to be similar in their format to those in 2018, although changes can never be ruled out! As before, children will be given scaled scores where 100 is an indication that children have reached the expected standard. You will receive your child’s scaled score and an indication of how it relates to national standards across all schools. Writing attainment will graded based on teacher assessments during the course of the year – it is not tested.
All the tests (Maths, Reading and Grammar Punctuation and Spelling) will take place during the week beginning Monday 13th May 2019.
Further information about the 2019 tests will be posted here as and when it becomes available.
Trips and Visits
In the summer term Year 6 spend a week away camping at the Hautbois House Activities Centre near Coltishall from Monday 1st July to Friday 5th July 2019.
