Like many others, my DGD2 (11) starts her SATS tomorrow and whilst she is usually very happy and confident at school, she has never really grew to like (I was going to say “got on with” but thought that might be misconstrued) her class teacher. She has been doing lots of revision but is still really worried and anxious about the tests. I have tried to tell her not to worry, but they do don’t they? I have told her that as long as she tries her best she will be fine and whatever happens she still has a place in the secondary school close to home with her elder sister.
Any advice would be gratefully received. She is with me all day today and I’m not sure whether revising at this stage is a good thing or shall I just encourage her to enjoy the sunshine and try to forget SATS for today?
Thank you in advance.
