Three powerpoint presentations - one for each text in the 2016 test paper. Each PPT includes extract of text to read from the board and extract of text with questions to discuss in pairs and as a class. After working through the PPT, children will be given the test questions to answer in pairs/individually/groups. All in an effort to add a bit of variety to Year 6 SATS revision.
A great creative write opportunity.
A wanted poster to describe The Great Storm Cat, in particular the appearance and behaviour of the storm cat. These sheets were enlarged on the photocopier to A3 to give children more space to write.
Differentiated three ways.
3 PPT’s (one for each text).
Each PPT includes the text, discussion questions. This is designed to be as part of revision so the children get used to the types of texts used. This worked through with the children and then children answer the questions from the test for further practice.
Encouraging children to describe the setting of the story by pretending to be a pilot. Loved writing these and created some outstanding writing by using their imagination.
A great YouTube clip is available to allow children to see the setting and help describe it in this way.
Differentiated three ways.
Day One - Mass. Children weigh various objects and record as a group. Starter and Plenary challenge questions also included.
Day Two - Capacity. Make a space cocktail. Children to problem solve the correct way to make a space cocktail and for it not to go over a certain amount. More able children not allowed to use measurement that are a multiple of 5 or 10. Lowers only allowed to use multiples of 10. Middles can use multiples of 5 or 10. Led to a creative writing opportunity of an Instruction Text.

To teach children about the Four Noble Truths. \n\nTaught as an experiential session. Chocolate treats given to 4 'special&' children - this will encourage children to discuss suffering at a basic level.
I made this after struggling to find a similar activity! Allows children to discover the names of the different countries and the capitals of the UK. \n\nGive children an atlas and see if they can find them before revealing whether they are right or wrong. \n\nWorked like a treat and built up some great atlas skills!!
This powerpoint includes activities for Traffic Light sentences (to encourage Full stops and capital letters). \n\nThe Powerpoint also includes Speech Marks Sandwiches to encourage children to use speech accurately. Helps children to address misconceptions using speech/introduce them to speech.
