For the three weeks after the Easter holidays we will continue to practice timings of SATs assessments, SAT focused questions and booster groups, in order to help the children to feel fully prepared to take on these tests.
We would thoroughly appreciate your support at home with further revision and homework during the Easter holidays. The children have worked so hard in class – it would be a shame to lose this over the Easter break.
I have given the children a copy of a sample Reading SATs paper and a sample SPAG paper. The children should aim to complete it over the holiday, either in a 1 hour session, or broken up into manageable time slots. The answer book will available to check on the school website.
In addition to this, I have sent home Maths facts to learn sheet. This covers all the information that the children should know, for example, how many days there are in November or how many millilitres in ¾ of a litre. Please test your child regularly on these useful facts.
There is also a ’10 for 10’ maths booklet. The aim is to spend 10 minutes on Maths each day. The answer booklets will be available on the school website.
Below is a list of revision web pages which I think are most appropriate.
Mixed websites containing games, practice tests and activities
http://www.primaryhomeworkhelp.co.uk/revision/ (general revision)

http://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/ks2/english/ (revision games, information and quiz)
http://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/ks2/maths/ (revision games, information and quiz)
All this information will be on the school website.
I hope that you find this information helpful. Thank you for your continued support of the children and their hard work.
