Year 6 SATs reasoning revision

This is a reasoning treasure hunt I have made to aid my Year 6 children with their SATs revision. I have found they struggle with the reasoning style questions so have decided to expose them to as many questions as possible throughout the day to enable them to develop the strategies to solve them. This treasure hunt contains 25 questions which I have written in the style of SATs questions. To play the game, I laminated the questions and stuck them around school. I also gave them a map, with the locations circled so they could orienteer their way around school but that's up to you! I gave the children 50 minutes to work in partners to answer as many of the questions correctly. Once the time was up, we gathered back in the classrooms and marked the answers together. I modelled how to solve the problems. This game worked really well: it was fun, active and the children didn't even realise they were revising- perfect! :-)

KS2 May 2016 SATs Maths Gap Analysis Grid (including tests and conversion tables) - SATs PrepQuick View

KS2 May 2016 SATs Maths Gap Analysis Grid (including tests and conversion tables) - SATs Prep

These are excel spreadsheets Gap Analysis documents for the May 2016 Year Six SATs Papers for Mathematics (Arithmetic, Reasoning 1 & 2).The sheet totals up the scores automatically and each child's final score changes colour to reflect their ability. If their total score for a subject goes green, it means they would have passed the 2016 SATs with that score. If it goes Orange, it means they are within touching distance. If it goes Green with a yellow font, it means that child would have achieved a 'More Able' score for that tested subject. I have also included a digital document, linking to a freely available copy of each test, mark scheme and instructions. Additionally, I have included the conversion tables from RAW Score to Scaled Score. All a teacher has to do is enter their children's names and enter the 0's, 1's, 2's or 3's for each question, which also change colour too for a visual reference. I recommend that a teacher should enter 'N' if a child did not attempt that question. This gives an idea of who is not even attempting certain questions, not just whether they got the question wrong. The sheets are set up for 30 pupils but more can be added/deleted and instructions are on the first page/sheet. Some cells are locked/protected in this document but the parts that you need to insert yourself are editable. This is so that the formulas/algorithms do not break and render the spreadsheet's functionalities as broken. If you wish to have a complete set of gap grids for the 2016 SATs, they are available as one package in my shop at a bundled, cheaper price. I take requests for Gap Analysis Grids. Please leave feedback if you like this resource as I am planning to produce more for each SATs paper going forward, as well as CGP Practice Papers. Please remember to rate this resource as I made this to save teachers time. Thank-you.

1920s- Writers of the Lost GenerationQuick View

1920s- Writers of the Lost Generation

Writers of the “Lost Generation” During the 1920s, many American writers, musicians, and painters left the United States to live in Europe. These expatriates, people who left their native country to live elsewhere, often settled in Paris. American writer Gertrude Stein called them the “Lost Generation.” They moved frantically from one European city to another, trying to find meaning in life. Life empty of meaning is the theme of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby (1925). And as I sat there brooding on the old, unknown world, I thought of Gatsby’s wonder when he first picked out the green light at the end of Daisy’s dock. He had come a long way to this blue lawn, and his dream must have seemed so close that he could hardly fail to grasp it. He did not know that it was already behind him, somewhere back in that vast obscurity beyond the city, where the dark fields of the republic rolled on under the night. Gatsby believed in the green light, the . . . future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter—tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther. . . . And one fine morning— So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past. - F. SCOTT FITZGERALD, The Great Gatsby

American Speeches Formatted for Annotation and Note-Taking

Have you ever searched for a student-friendly version of a speech only to find that you need to reformat it yourself? You copy and paste, but the formatting is wonky and definitely not student-friendly? I know I've done this countless times, so I finally sat down and spent some time formatting these speeches into a handout that works for my students. I've included space on the left for signals, paragraph-marking, etc, and even more space on the rights for annotation, note-taking and reflection. **Speeches included** Patrick Henry: Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death George Washington: First Inaugural Address Frederick Douglass: The Hypocrisy of American Slavery Abraham Lincoln: Gettysburg Address Franklin Delano Roosevelt: First Inaugural Address Richard Nixon: Checkers John F.

A Face for a Pumpkin: A Halloween Fictional Close Read for 3rd-5th GradeQuick View

A Face for a Pumpkin: A Halloween Fictional Close Read for 3rd-5th Grade

A Face for a Pumpkin-that's what Corey wants to make when he gets home! In this close reading activity written on a middle-year 3rd grade level, Corey fails to make a jack o' lantern until his dad walks him through the steps. This is a fun fictional read that gets students to look closely at "how-to" writing. In the end, after studying the text for key words and transitions and answering questions, students are asked to write their own how-to passage. A fun Halloween or Fall activity, this close read is all about jack-o-lanterns and "how to" writing. If you have students who do not celebrate Halloween, or if you school does not celebrate Halloween, this activity is perfect for you! The word "Halloween" is not included in the passage or questions, and other related concepts such as trick-or-treating are not mentioned as well. Designed for students to first read independently and then again with a partner, this activity encourages students to reread text, while teaching them strategies for close reading. The nature of close reading, as well as the passage and questions lend this activity to Standardized Test Practice. This specific close read was created with Standardized Test Prep in mind, and the questions have the look and feel of Benchmark/SAT 9 test questions. The reading passage is written on a middle of the year 3rd grade Reading Level, which makes the passage ideal for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students. They can focus on reading closely and paying attention to the text, without getting stuck by too difficult concepts and words. Close reading is a strategy that is encouraged through Common Core, best completed with short passages such as the one provided here.
