Experienced KS1 and KS2 teacher currently working in Year Six. All resources have been tried and tested. I'm open to suggestions and requests and aim to help anyone who requires it. Please leave feedback and rate my resources.

These are excel spreadsheet Gap Analysis documents for the May 2016 Year Six SATs Papers for Reading, Mathematics (Arithmetic, Reasoning 1 & 2), GPS and Spelling Papers. 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.
There are three spreadsheet documents. One for Reading, one for Maths, and one for GPS. They are broken down into individual papers inside.
I have also included a digital copy of each test, mark scheme and instructions. Additionally, I have included the conversion tables from RAW Score to Scaled Score. These can be found inside the .Zip file.
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.
Last academic year I used these grids to provide targeted feedback and to spot trends. As a result my class were well over National Average for all subjects (much to my relief!)
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.

Two diary entries based on the same event (visiting the new school wildlife/garden area)
One is basically written with very little attempt at adding detail, high-level punctuation and complex sentences.
The other is of end of KS2 Standard.
I used this activity to get the children to realize that as teachers, we see pieces of text about the same event but the quality of the texts varies drastically. Which would they rather be writing? Which would I rather be reading? Why? Explain why one is better than the other.
Files are uploaded as Publisher, PDF and Word.

A good activity to get children to compare and contrast written text, particularly good for getting children to spot grammar features and high-level punctuation.
The details are not glaringly obvious but word choice is markedly improved in the better version, as well as more detail having been added.
Also excellent for getting children to summarize a text.
