What a great video! Had year 3 NAPLAN this year and we had been playing it down. Problem was the fear coming from peers and our child being asked by friends why she wasn’t concerned about it – she told them all that it wasn’t a big deal and was the schools thing – provided she did her best, that was perfect. Talking with kids in this way is great, so that they can support each other. We didn’t show her the results (didn’t even tell her we had them) until she came home about a week after they arrived and said to us “the postman isn’t very good – he must have lost my NAPLAN results, everyone else has theirs” We showed her the results – all totally fine. She says its good to know the process now and she will tell everyone else not to worry. So glad we played it down as we did.
