SATs Revision

All information regarding SATs revision will be in this section - I will list what the focus will be on each week in each area, you may want to work with your children on some of these areas at home - ask them how they are doing with the weekly focus - they might appreciate some home support as well.

TIMESTABLES & READING - It is so important to practice tables nightly and to read every night. Being quick at recalling times tables up to 12 x 12 can make a huge difference in their final SATs mark.

With regards to reading, please make sure that your child is fluent in the book they are reading, if they are struggling to read words and let the story flow, the text is probably too tricky for them. Although they will have the text to read in SATs, their understanding and fluency of stories and non-fiction texts is essential. 

REVISION PACKS - Children have been sent home with several revision packs for SATs, Please don't expect to get through all of them fully - they're huge! The best thing to do is to decide with your child what areas they feel and you feel they need to practice on and focus on those areas.

SPELLINGS - Please do try and get your children to learn the spelling patterns they will be tested on in the SATs tests. The spreadsheet that I sent home at the beginning of term 4 will really help you to work with your child to focus on particular patterns.
