So sad for your child. I would be furious with the teacher and be discussing my concerns with principal. Not on.

DS1's class are doing practise tests in class. He is very anxious about it so Ive printed off old test papers and instead of making him do them, I go through them and read them with him and ask him what he thinks needs to be done and talk about it.
Luckily our school isnt so focused on it, just easing them into it and just gently advising them that they just do their best and its all they ask :-) No pressure to perform and make them understand its ONE test in their entire lives.

My DS is in yr 3 and Id be taking to the teacher if she was putting that much stress and anxiety on my child.....especially over a general test. Like a PP has said, they shouldnt be doing any extra work, it should be on what they are learning from what they have already set out.

My DD has been having melt downs each night because of the amount of pressure she has been put on her at school. We ended up paying the $88 on study ladder so she could do practice tests to ease her anxiety a little.

Now I'm feeling really anxious for DD for this test I have a meeting with the teacher early next term and might discuss with her what will be expected and ask that not too much pressure be placed on her.

Dd is doing this year and while they have been talking about it in class, her teacher has been really cool about it and kept the need for them to perform well completely out of it.
Why stress 8 year olds out!!!

OP, just in case you didn't know, you can opt out of her doing NAPLAN. I'd seriously look at it if it was causing that much grief.

The book is now in hiding and won't be seen again!
I am really thinking about withdrawing her from it if this pressure continues over the next week or so.

I don't like it or the pressure that comes with it. I have just done parental withdrawal form for my son this year and wish I knew about it for the previous years.
But each child is different, my daughter loves all things school and loves study, bless her!
