18 Different Maths and Grammar SATS Tests (Hundreds of differentiated practice questions!)

18 Different Maths and Grammar SATS Tests (Hundreds of differentiated practice questions!)

I want to make KS2 SATs revision fun. I want it to be something students and teachers really enjoy. I have taken each of the SATs tests and combined the original test papers and the original marking schemes into PowerPoints where you ask a question and immediately see the the answer on the next slide. This teaching packs covers KS2 Maths and KS2 SATs SPAG tests (Spag is English grammar, punctuation and spelling Papers) The idea is that you can now ask a question and all your students show you the answer on their mini-whiteboards and then you discuss the answers together and see what would have got one or two points. As the students can work in pairs or small groups on the questions, they are less stressed and enjoy the whole revision process. In addition, it gives them a chance to learn about other student's strategies. This pack could be used in the classroom for whole class teaching, for small groups or at home as a great teaching resource. If you like this teaching resource, check out my teaching resources at http://www.TimeToTeach.co.uk. If you like these resources, be sure to leave a nice comment. Nice comments make my day, and motivate me to write more teaching resources.

FREE Year 3 Maths Assessment Tests - Perfect Preparation For The Optional Year 3 SATs Tests

FREE Year 3 Maths Assessment Tests - Perfect Preparation For The Optional Year 3 SATs Tests

I love Wigan Maths. I have used them constantly in my own classroom since 2000. While these assessments don't match the current curriculum, they are still an excellent tool for reviewing and revising maths. I took the original tests and I have made it so your students can do all the test in one go, or you can give them a single question, give them a little time to resolve the problem and then discuss what is the answer and why. This is the best use of these Wigan maths tests.

2016 Year 6 Sample SATS Maths Papers - Questions And Answers

2016 Year 6 Sample SATS Maths Papers - Questions And Answers

In 2016, there will be a new Maths test format. I have taken the sample 2016 Maths SATs tests and combined the original question and answer papers into single documents. This means you can ask a single question to the class, wait for a response on their mini white boards and then check their answers against the official marking scheme. Check out my new video on how to make this lesson extra successful. The great thing about this is it really reduces the amount of stress in the classroom as the students are able to work on their own, in pairs or small teams to work out the answer. They can then discuss their different strategies at resolving each of the questions.. This is a nice set of teaching resources to keep a lesson well paced and snappy. Please leave your comments about it below.

KS2 SATS and SPAG Revision Test Bundle

KS2 SATS and SPAG Revision Test Bundle

Lots of different Year 6 (KS2) revision tests. What makes these teaching resources special? I have combined the different official documents, so you have the questions and answers all in one place. You can choose if you have the questions followed by the answers or if you prefer all the questions together, followed by all the answers together. This means it is much more flexible in the classroom as you can set a question, then review the question as a class or you can work your way through a whole test paper at once!
