REVISION IDEAS FOR Y6
As we move through Year 6, children will be encouraged encouraged to undertake a regular programme of revision alongside their usual weekly homework tasks.
To help them along the way, here are 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 SATs Companion to help with practise and revision. Using your child's personal targets will be a good guide for areas to work on.
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!
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.
