SATS Preparation - Stage 1 (Video)
All too often the Year 6 SATS can cause overwhelming feelings of anxiety and stress. Children become fixed on the idea that these are the most important tests they will ever take. Anxiety sets in, and then spreads around friendship groups quicker than wildfire! The first thing to remember (or to remind your child about) is that the SATS assess against a very limited set of criteria. You are made up of more thoughts, ideas, skills, feelings, qualities and uniqueness than can EVER be assessed by ANY form of assessment. That said, if you do want to perform to your best ability but are finding all the preparation work is building up more anxiety than preparedness for you, these sequence of SATS mindfulness and visualisation videos could help.
