BELIEVING, LEARNING AND SHARING TOGETHER: From Monday, school will only be open for the children of key workers who cannot provide alternative child care arrangements any other way. Many families may have one parent keyworker and one that is not. There is an expectation from the Government that these children should be cared for at home. Please see the latest email / newsletter for further information. Remote learning pages will be updated on a weekly basis for children being educated at home.

KS2 SATs 2020

Still image for this video
This short video will explain how the KS2 assessments (tests and teacher assessments) work in Y6. The timetable is slightly different, reading is on Tuesday not Monday, whilst the grammar, punctuation and spelling tests are now on Monday.

Grammar Glossary

A good site for spelling revision is: spelling frame.co.uk

On this you can play games, hear the words and learn or revise the spelling patterns learnt throughout KS2.

Have a go by clicking the link above.

REVISION IDEAS FOR Y6

The children are encouraged to undertake a regular programme of revision alongside their usual weekly homework tasks.  This should be guided by information given to them individually through the children's individual strengths and areas for improvement discussed with Mrs. Pickup.

 

To help them along the way we have found some sites which they may find useful.   Many of these are interactive and use brief tutorials or engage the children to use their knowledge through the playing of games.  These should be used alongside  Study Guides to help with their practise and revision.

Maths and English Practice- take a look at some of the sites mentioned below to help with your preparation for the KS2 SATs in May: 

 

IXL have separate pages of skills linked to individual Year groups. The Y6 page has links to practise both English and Maths skills. Pages are then split into skills with a practise question for the children to think about.

BBC Education has produced a whole selection of materials for KS2. Follow the KS2 link and then select either Maths or English. Each area usually has an information section for reading, plus an activity and then quiz which is then marked online. Some aspects require a subscription.

A site with both Maths and English based quizzes which are marked as you go along.

A site with a range of information and questions – great for revision purposes!

http://www.icteachers.co.uk/children/children_sats.htm

 

A revision site based upon the old Key Stage 2 Tests but still contains lots of useful information for both Maths and English. It is also useful for homework topics.

http://resources.woodlands-junior.kent.sch.uk/revision/

 

 

A site with links to old style Key Stage 2 Maths Papers, Maths Tutorials as well as Maths Games. Some of these games are linked to Memory and would therefore, help pupils to retain key information.

http://www.online-maths-tutor.com/

 

 

This site has links to Maths and English revision materials, including worksheets to look at online or to print off and practise with.

 Again these are “old style” Key Stage 2 test papers but are still useful for practise, and in particular, creating discussion around questions and strategies to answer. View on screen or print off for free.
