On this page you will find resources to use at home with your child.
This will be up-dated regularly, so please check at least once a week for new resources.
English, Maths and SPaG
www.satsbootcamp.co.uk (all children have been provided with their own username and password)
Children log in and click ‘Revise’ – there are 25 daily revision tasks for both Maths and SPAG. The expectation is for your child to complete the daily task to prepare them for their upcoming SATs.
Additionally, under ‘Practice SATs tests’ children can access papers for reasoning, arithmetic, reading and spag.
As teachers, we can monitor their activity and progress online. Moreover, the ‘Test Yourself’ tasks are marked electronically and your child can see which questions they got right or wrong. Then they are given a chance to repeat the test once they have revisited the ‘LEARN’ section, to consolidate their learning.
