Welsh National Tests

After Easter we have our Welsh National Tests for year 2 to year 6. These tests will take place at the beginning of May. The tests are compulsory for all pupils.
We are not a School that puts pressure on the children at test time. There can be a lot of worry and anxiety around the tests, particularly for younger pupils who have not sat them before.
As our School motto states we want everyone to be "Happy to do their best" and all we ask the children at this time is for them to try their best.
Over the next few weeks you might find some examples of test questions coming home for home-work. This may be because this is an area of maths that the class are having difficulty with or to familiarise the children with the sort of questions and different ways of answering that may appear on the tests, so that they are more prepared and less worried about the assessments.
If you would like to see examples of the types of questions please follow the links below:
