National Curriculum Information
At the end of year two children will be assessed against the standards of the key stage one curriculum. As part of this assessment the children will take SATS tests in reading, maths and spelling,punctuation and grammar. These are nothing for the children to worry about. By the time we get to May, they will be completely familiar with the sorts of tasks they will be asked to do. I do not talk about SATS with the children at all. When we get close to May, I tell them about the special quizzes we will be doing in class. Strangely enough, the children actually seem to enjoy the SATS tests - they like having a special booklet that they can write in and are proud to show what they have learned!
Below are some documents that outline the key curriculum information.

On Wednesday 25th September we went to the Sea Life Centre in Birmingham, where we saw a whole range of creatures living in tanks to match their natural environments.
