Revision Resources

Dear Parents

Following conversations with many of you during parent consultations, please see the links below.

The CGP website is full of useful revision resources. These are a few that I recommend:

 

The Complete KS2 Maths SAT Buster 10 minute tests (incl answers)

This book of SAT Buster 10-Minute tests is a brilliant way to introduce KS2 Maths SATS preparation in bite-sized chunks! Each set of quick tests covers a mixture of maths topics, with questions in the style of the real SATS.

https://www.cgpbooks.co.uk/primary-books/ks2/maths/mxp22-ks2-maths-sat-buster-10-minute-tests-math

 

The Complete KS2 English SP&G SAT Buster 10 minute tests (incl answers)

Bursting with bite-sized practice tests, this book is a brilliant way to split SATS preparation into manageable chunks! Each set of quick tests covers grammar, punctuation and spelling with questions in the style of the real SATS — including audio tests for spelling (you can either read these out from the pull-out transcripts or access free online audio files on the CGP website).

New Academic Year 2017/2018

This week we have looked at the difference between a fixed mindset and a growth mindset.

We completed a quiz to find out what our individual mindsets currently are.

We are looking forward to developing our Growth Mindsets this year!

Why not print out the quiz and find out about your mindset?

Remember... Your mindset is not permanent! Mindsets can change!

 

Mindset Quiz

Homework

Spellings : Given out on a Friday for a test on the following Friday.

Maths, English and Timestables : Given out on a Friday. Please hand in by the following Wednesday.
