SATs STRESS BUSTERS!

The weeks leading up to SATs can be a really stressful time. Whilst we do as much as we can to reassure you at school, we know some of you still take your stress and worries home. Below are some tips for you and your parents about how to prepare for SATs in a calm way that should help to reduce any anxiety you may have!

  1. Reduce stress levels at the weekends
    You have been working so hard in class to complete revision and prepare for your tests. Make sure your weekends are as stress free as possible. If you want to do any revision, play games or turn it into a fun activity.
  2. Remind yourself that the adults around you are proud of you! 
    It’s important to not put too much pressure on yourself and remember that all of the adults at school and home are very proud of you.
  3. Talk!
    If you are feeling worried, anxious, stressed or nervous about SATs, please talk to someone you can trust. Your teachers are always happy to listen to you are discuss strategies which can help. If you don’t feel like you can tell you teacher, you can place a worry in your class worry box to let us know.
  4. Plan some fun
    Plan something fun to do the weekend before SATs. This will give you something to look forward to and hopefully prevent you from worrying about your tests all weekend before.
  5. Exercise
    Doing some exercise can be a fantastic way to reduce feelings of stress. When we exercise our bodies produce chemicals called endorphins which make us feel good!
  6. Breakfast
    By eating a proper breakfast, you can make sure you are ready for a day of learning at school and help your brain to get fired up!
  7. Sleep
    Your brain also needs lots of sleep to function well! Make sure you get AT LEAST 9 hours of sleep each night and no screen time for 30 minutes before you fall asleep – I know this is tricky, but it can really help you to have a much better nights sleep.
