Most years, covid permitted, children take their SATs tests at the beginning of May.
The test usually consist of:
- A reading comprehension paper
- A spelling, grammar and punctuation paper
- Three maths papers
There are no longer writing tests as children’s levels will be determined by teacher assessment of their written work over the whole year.
The following are websites useful for revision:
http://www.funenglishgames.com (interactive reading comprehension)
http://www.northwood.org.uk/ (good for explaining English grammar)
http://www.online-maths-tutor.com/video-lessons.html (maths with explanations and questions)
http://www.eduplace.com/kids/hme/k_5/quizzes/?x=104&y=15 (This is an American site to revise English grammar. Some of the terminology is slightly different to what the children are used to, but much of it is relevant to the new spelling, grammar and punctuation test. Grade 5 is similar to year 6)
http://mrnussbaum.com/ (This is also an American site but has great interactive maths and reading comprehension games)
