Produced by Year 6 teachers, these fantastic resources help to consolidate all SPAG terms required for the KS2 tests. Included in the PPTs are several example questions for last minute preparation.
Although perfect for the last couple of weeks, these resources can be used all-year-round and are therefore a great investment!
Another 5 mock test answer sheets and 5 corresponding sets of flash cards/booklet pages replicating the 2015 KS1 phonics screening test. This part also includes 5 PPTs with all the words from the individual tests for whole class and small group sessions.
Covering a range of real and pseudo words (marked with a monster on flash cards) from phases 2-5.
A perfect resource for revision, testing your pupils' knowledge and identifying areas for development prior to the 2016 Phonics Screening.
A fun and engaging lesson for upper KS2 but easily adaptable for lower KS2. Fast paced for accelerated progress. Tried and tested in Y6 (upper mid-low ability)
Pupils will use prior knowledge and extend learning of fractions of amounts and mixed number and improper fractions to work out 'who done it'. Based on the popular game of Cluedo (most recently known as Clue) the task is to solve where, when and who committed the maths crime by calculating fractions of amounts, converting mixed number and improper fractions and identifying equivalent fractions.
Perfect for Ofsted, an observation, an interview or in addition to your weekly teaching.

The file included is an updated/new IEP template which is renamed ‘Pupil Learning Passport’. It is used successfully in conjunction with face-to-face parental meetings once per term. We allocated 20-25 minutes each for the Autumn term parental meetings and 10-15 minutes each for the Spring and Summer term meetings, although longer may be needed depending on the nature of the outcomes, progress made as well as the individual circumstances surrounding the pupil .
Pupil Learning Passports (PLPs) can be used for SEND, LAC and disadvantaged pupils.
What does it do?
Outlines personal details and SEND category/categories
Links to SEND ranges
Outlines the pupil’s strengths, achievements and interests ( pupil discussions are held once a year prior to the first parental meeting).
Outlines external agencies involved
Outlines background information (status, medical and external agencies)
Incorporates pupil voice - ‘barriers to learning’ and ‘I learn best when’
States outcomes and learning targets (Autumn, Spring and Summer)
Outlines provision (intervention, resources, strategies and what I can do at home to help
Tracks attainment and progress data
Incorporates parent views
Includes details of transition
Why is it more effective?
One document that is updated each term for one year and the follows the pupil into future year groups
One document that tracks pupil progress for their whole school career from Reception to Y6, or whenever they join your school
In-line with the SEND Code of Practice 2015, incorporating parent and pupil voice and views
Sections are written in conjunction with the pupil
It combines IEPs and Pupil Passports removing the need for two separate documents
Links directly to SEND Provision Map
Saves teachers time having ‘tick box’ options in various sections
All relevant information needed for referrals is in one place
All relevant information in one place to ensure all staff involved with the child is aware of provision, needs, resources and strategies
Acts as a transition document (class to class/teacher to teacher, across Key stages and to new schools)
Overall, it replaces a lot of singular documents and creates one meaningful and multi-purpose document for SEND pupils.
An ideal last-minute set of spelling revision worksheets. They can quickly be made into booklets which the children can revise with at home, or during small windows of time in the classroom. The 20 sets of 10 spellings cover all of the Year 5 and 6 New Curriculum word lists, as well as common tricky words which are highly likely to come up in the 2017 SPAG test.

This essential- last minute revision- spelling presentation includes over 30 slides, containing word lists of all the major spelling rules and patterns for Year 6. Also included are 14 fun spelling races that the children can complete in small groups, pairs or individually. The children must work together to correct the spellings. You can either give the children clues as to which ones they need to correct, or just tell them how many correct answers they have! The children in my Year 6 class love competing against each other for house points. The races are a much more fun way of revising spellings than an actual test. I usually award from 5 house points to 1 house point for the first 5 groups. It is excellent for highlighting to teachers which spellings all groups continue to find tricky. The spelling races can be adapted for any set of words.
A comprehensive 40 slide power-point presentation, which goes through all the key maths concepts that children need to know for the 2 reasoning papers this year. It covers all aspects of the maths curriculum from shape and space to factors and prime numbers. It would be an ideal revision aid for the last two weeks before SATS, when all mathematical general knowledge needs to be revisited and consolidated.
15 colourful and eye-catching end of year certificates for both KS1 and KS2. The documents have been created in Word so are editable for your own class/year group.
Excellent Effort and Classroom Helper
This last-minute revision power-point includes a definition of all punctuation terms for the 2016 SPAG test. It then has several examples of questions from previous papers for the children to quickly test their knowledge. Ideal for final cramming! Look out for my sentence forms and grammatical terms power-points which I have also added today.

These resources have been developed by Year 6 teachers to aid with last minute spelling revision as well as all-year-round spelling work. The lists include all words from the statutory year 5 and 6 lists as well as other key areas for consolidation including homophones, plurals and silent letters. The spelling races are great fun and a more engaging way to re-cap spellings.
