2018 KS2 SATs Revision Ultimate 3-in-1 Maths Organiser

2018 KS2 SATs Revision Ultimate 3-in-1 Maths Organiser

NEW 2019 version with great new features coming soon- FROM SEPT 2018! Ultimate KS2 Maths Skills Organiser! Following on from teacher/student feedback (over 500 schools used last year and over 20 5*Star TES reviews), new in this year’s edition… • Student friendly tutorial videos for EVERY question on the 2017 Reasoning and Arithmetic SATs papers! • All 48 printable skills booster packs have been updated to incorporate the 2017 questions! • There is now a second “Prove It!” version of each of the 48 skills Booster Packs. These are also printable and show the answer to each question in the answer box. The idea behind the “Prove It!” boosters are to encourage children who tend to do all the working out in their heads (and subsequently lose silly marks) to explain, reason, prove and justify where the answer comes from. They can no longer simply just give an answer without showing any working because the answer is already there! This is an invaluable skill for mastery of the reasoning papers. The “Prove It!” boosters are accessible by clicking the Lightbulb underneath each standard booster. • The heighest weighted topics which have been worth the most marks in recent years have been given larger buttons to click to help students and teachers plan and prioritise their revision! • The Boosters have been reorganised more sensibly to make it easier to distinguish between skills required for Arithmetic and those required for Reasoning i.e. Boosters 1 – 10 cover the Arithmetic skills and Boosters 11 – 48 cover the Reasoning skills. • All YouTube buttons for instant access to a tutorial video for each question are still present on all booster packs and past papers, although last Summer’s questions are easier to spot as they have a green YouTube button instead of a regular red and white one. • We have made it easier to get Year 5 involved! A new button at the top of the Organiser especially for Year 5 to access the One-A-Day Vidamin SATs videos. A SATs video for every of the year, as well as Thinking Outside the Box Puzzle videos on our own YouTube channel. Just click the fruit! • Teachers’ Answer Booklet. Of course the major success and strength of the last two years’ Organisers is still there too! All of the above is accessible via a single PDF file, which is uploadable onto your school website – giving your students access to all Standard Boosters, Prove It Boosters, and tutorial videos for every past paper question at home on tablets, laptops and mobile phones. Customisable letter for parents and assembly for students also included.

 KS2 SATs Maths Revision Board Game - Pirate Theme

KS2 SATs Maths Revision Board Game - Pirate Theme

Brighten up SATs revision with this great fun alternative to past papers! This Swash-buckling board game involves pupils moving around the board and answering past SATs questions in order to win treasure. This pack includes the board, the rules and 32 SATs question cards with answers (you could also add your own cards by using SATs papers in the future). The last page also invites pupils to invent their own game for the students to revise with the following year (but of course they must provide answers to the questions they set!) To play you will need to cut up the question cards (I suggest laminating them for future use) and print the board in colour for each team. I usually let the rest of the team decide if the question has been answered correctly (that way they all have to work it out!) but there is an answer sheet provided for checking if they are not sure. You will also need counters, dice and mini whiteboards.
