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.

While the Wigan LEA website disappeared, taking all its maths resources with it, I kept a copy and then made a complete set of PowerPoint Maths assessments I want to share with everyone. These would be great for revising for the KS1 SATs tests. There are two different formats, you can either show them a question, then let them work out the answer and check their answers, or you can show them each question in turn and set them sme time to find the answer and then ask them the next question until you finish the test. I have also included the original test papers for teachers who want to print out all the test papers and answers all in one go. I hope you find them as useful as I do with my own class.

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

(1)
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.
