FREE Year 2 Maths Assessment Tests - Perfect For KS1 Revision And Other Assessment Tasks

FREE Year 2 Maths Assessment Tests - Perfect For KS1 Revision And Other Assessment Tasks

I always loved using Wigan maths with my class. I have built an entire set of teaching resources around these defunct tests as I think teachers still want to be able to access and use them as a way of preparing for different assessment tests. I have arranged it so you can either let your class do it all at once or the more efficient revision method where you do a question, check the answer as a class and then discuss the different ways of solving the problem.

Ks1 SATs Revision 2016 Mathematics Paper 1: arithmetic and Paper 2: reasoning as PowerPoints

Ks1 SATs Revision 2016 Mathematics Paper 1: arithmetic and Paper 2: reasoning as PowerPoints

I love to work through SATs papers are part of my revision program. These two PowerPoints are designed for whole class interaction. All the students need are some whiteboards. Each question is immediately followed by its answer. This has lots of motivational and organisational benefits. The first is the students get immediate feedback on their ideas and misconceptions, without needing to wait until the end of a test. It also means different students can explain each of their solving strategies to the class and help everyone become more effective learners. As the answers are straight after the questions, it is possible to simply use these PowerPoints for 5 minutes a day and still get the full benefit as all the questions are immediately solved. This is also a nice way of tutoring students at home. The tutor can then focus on the areas the students to need to work harder in.
