New take on tests

Fran Nantongwe

How interesting that many heads of English have ordered key stage 3 Sats papers this year, despite the abolition of the external tests. I have indeed ordered the non-fiction and prose reading booklets as they are free, quite glossy and have colour pictures.

But I will not be using them for testing purposes. And I have not ordered the Shakespeare papers.
