I did not go, the constant communication from the school about the sats is frankly making me feel like a shit parent cos I think it's for their benefit not ds' so am not gonna coach him to the nth degree at home.
I've already agreed to buy 3 sats practice books from them ,apparently they have no record of ds giving in the cheque ! Went from my account tho. Dd did these sat's 11 yrs ago and I do not remember this level of pressure then.
Ours was in October and I went - but I refused to shell out for the books. If DD2 gets SATs related homework (and that started happening from day 1 of Yr6) fair enough although it bloody annoys me that she isn't doing much new stuff but I too have no intention of drilling her at home.
She's already doing extension classes after school (loves them, wants to do them, otherwise would not be doing them) but if the school sends home a pile of extra revision over Easter I will be well and truly miffed.
