Hi just wondering if any pupils gained a level 6 in the sats reading test this year..? Apparently many pupils who were consistently gaining level 6 in the teacher assessment did not gain it in the actual test and national results suggest the overall results were less than 0.5%!

Level 6 is supposed to be really really hard for year 6 kids. They are not supposed to be at level 6 at 10. It's a really good thing the numbers are so low.

My dd is a g&t reader/writer (I am teacher and would agree with the school's assessment) and she didn't get it so obviously it is a pile o crap wink No kids got it at my school, my dc's school or another teaching friend's school. Dd did get a level 6 at maths. She'd better at lit than maths so I'm a bit meh about the whole thing really. Aren't levels out the window soon anyway?

Now you've made me think about the planning I haven't done yet <grump>

I am so uninterested in sats I never knew there even was one in reading. I was only interested when the level 6 types were so elusive. So yes. I have one. All 6s in everything. Parental input - zero

Are there parents who input for SATS? FFS.

Ooh yes. It's really odd.

I knew I didn't give a toss so just reassured him he could do what he liked. The standard ones took him ten minutes. Level 6 - 20 mins he sat bored shitless

You gave so little of a toss that you know how long he took to do them. grin And I think he may have reported back with a little poetic licence..............

Well only as he came home so pissed off he couldn't read a book so I queried and school told me.

GertieFinkle Tue 19-Aug-14 07:42:48

Yeah, right.

manofsponge Tue 19-Aug-14 07:43:23

Lol. I have no reason to lie!

You went in to query why your son child genius was not allowed to read a book during an exam?

So he was in angry tears of frustration and you had to be called away from work because he had to sit in silence for 20 minutes while his classmates finished their test????????

And fifty minutes.

man, that sounds like a very extreme reaction on the part of your son, I'm not surprised that the school called you in. Have you thought about what you can do to help him manage his feelings more effectively? Sounds like he has a lot of pent up anger that he doesn't usually express.

GertieFinkle Tue 19-Aug-14 08:17:06

LOL! I don't think mumsnet delete because people don't believe you. I may be proved wrong. I think you should give your son some strategies on what to do when he is bored. Crying because he finished a test early isn't going to cut the mustard at secondary.

manofsponge Tue 19-Aug-14 08:17:56

it did! He doesnt normally have any anger at all. Just mooches around watching shit on youtube

i hope its all past now.

manofsponge Tue 19-Aug-14 08:18:25

I would be a bit worried tbh about a child going from having "no anger" to reacting so disproportionately to such a trivial issue. Was he under a lot of pressure re the sats?
