Preventing the Summer Slide

When summer relaxation is over and school starts back up, many students
may find they’ve fallen behind.
A recent survey from the National Summer Learning Association (NSLA) confirms that teachers spend a significant amount of time re-teaching material due to summer learning loss. The survey, which was based on answers from 500 teachers, found that 66% of teachers have to spend three to four weeks re-teaching students material at the beginning of the year, while 24% of teachers spend at least five to six weeks reteaching material from the previous school year. A significant majority of the teachers surveyed by the NSLA agreed that such summer learning loss could be ameliorated if students participated in summer learning activities.

This term, teachers have been working closely together to develop activities and programs for
students to complete over the holidays to prevent the summer brain drain. We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to the first annual TBS Summer Learning Festival on Wednesday 17th June from 6.30-8.00opm. The festival will provide parents and students with a variety of activities, websites and learning ideas that can be completed over the holidays. Please join us!

It’s that time of year again – SATs week.

For many children in Year 6, they will be spending next week working hard to show off their skills in a range of tests, known as SATS (statutory assessment tests).

It is important that children understand that they are not going to “pass” or “fail” the tests – it will just show what they have achieved in their learning and what they can do.

Nationally, it is expected that the majority of Year 6 children will achieve Level 4 by the end of Year 6. However, for some children, achieving Level 3 is a real success for that particular individual. A child achieving Level 5 is working at a high level.

Some children may also be put forward to sit the Level 6 papers in English and/or Maths to extend them to their full potential. This year, children will carry out tests in: Reading; Maths (2 papers); Mental Mathematics and Spelling, Punctuation & Grammar. Their writing is now assessed by their class teacher based on the written work that they have completed throughout the year.

The staff and students at The British School wish all Year 6 children a HUGE Good Luck
for next week!!!
