I am not sure all adults would be able to include 5 types of punctuation( minimum) adverbial phrases and complex sentences in a radio advert for a toy which they had to imagine. The standard expected of 10 and eleven year olds is high.
I sometimes wonder when standards are so high for SATS is it not the teacher who has to train them from the beginning ?
They say parents have to do it
. the teacher's remarks are more effective on the child because if the child does not pay attention to it and the teacher questions the child in front of the whole class as to why he did not then I am confident that some of the children if not all will try to do their best so as to avoid any sort of embarrassment.
I maybe wrong but this is how I feel
