badly hidden stealth boast

This is why MN needs a [proud mummy] emoticon.

Lovely to hear your DS is doing so well in his work - you must be chuffed grin.

I like his new teacher too grin.
How cool for DS to finally get some recognition for his talents. Thrilled for you.

You can't 'put a child in' for any level with SATS

But what she probably means is, she expects him to gain a level 6.

Google it and all will be explained...including how to help him at home should you wish to.

the level 6 is an extra sat, not all children will sit it

My 10 yr old son's teacher told me he (not just him) will be doing a level 6 maths paper in his sats next year.

He's currently a 5a so I guess she thinks he'll be ready for it.

Worra,you have to submit names of any children who'll be sitting the separate Level 6 papers quite a while in advance. It's in addition to the normal 3-5 papers which most year six children will take,unless they're working below level 3.

If it is a stealth boast fair enough - carry on grin
But if you genuinely want to know, why on earth don't you post in the Education topics?

Well done OP's DS! grin

Hurray! No need to be stealthy - that's fab!

Wonderful! I like proud parent posts, even though they're unpopular....to me, there is nothing wrong in wishing to shout out about your child's successes.
Good for him! grin
