Ten-for-Ten KS2

Please see below Mild, Spicy and Hot revision booklets.


Ten-for-Ten is an approach that focuses on doing a little maths or GPS every day which will help keep things fresh in your mind for when you come back to school.

By using these revision booklets, you will be using the key skills you have been reheasing all year. It is called 10-4-10:  '10 minutes for 10 days'.

Reading and KS2 English SATs: tips and advice
Read outside the book
Children need to get used to reading non-fiction texts as well as stories. Try to encourage children to read texts associated with events or interests that are meaningful to them; for example, if they like football, read through a match programme or a newspaper report with them. If you’re planning a holiday this summer, get your child to read up on your destination of choice. 
Reading together
Bring back the 'bedtime story' for your eleven year old! Take turns to read out loud with your child, guaranteed to improve their reading and their listening skills, as well as a brilliant way to spend time together. When you are listening to your child encourage them to read with expression and to do different voices for different characters. You can also ask them comprehension questions (they can test you when it's your turn to read out loud!); look at KS2 SATs Reading tests for ideas on kinds of questions to ask.
