Year 6 Parents
There will be some tests for Year 6 pupils in week 6. These will involve only a small amount of revision to introduce the pupils to the experience of simultaneously sitting tests in different subjects and to the techniques of revision. It is important for children’s future education to become used to this, but I am very keen that the children do not become anxious about these tests. The tests themselves are purely for practice. You can find revision material for your child at: https://sites.google.com/deanclose.org.uk/dcpsrevision/home
