Please don't bother - he's passed his 11+. SATS are for the benefit of the school only - it really doesn't make any difference to the child. He'll have so much work to do next year - let him relax now!

My sentiments exactly, leave the children to be children.I've already told my daughter the very same thing, the SATS are to test the teaching and are great for the schools if the results are good,but they are of no value to the children unless their prospective secondary school sets according to ability.
You may be pleased to know that, in the end, I didn't bother doing any work at home towards his SATs.
He is predicted 5's in Maths and Science but just a 4b in English.
He used to be above average in English as well but, as it is a subject he does not enjoy, unfortunately he seems to have made little progress in recent years.
I am quite laid back now regarding SATs because I now know they are testing the schools teaching rather than the individual child.
Still, I wish there was a better way of testing the school, though....
