In preparation for the SATs, children can access the following websites for revision and practice purposes. 
Revision for: Maths, Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar, and Reading
BBC Bitesize website has lots of tasks and revision activities that are very useful and informative. 
Century Tech - all children in year 6 have been given a log in for this that they can access at home. Children have been set work by their teachers. 

Times Tables Rockstars - all children have a log in for this so that they can increase their recall of times tables facts.

Reading books - we recommend that children read their own books that they bring home as well as newspapers, magazines and poems! It is important for children to read out loud and it would be helpful for them to be questioned on the book that they have read. Below you will find a range of sentence stems that we use in school to aid questioning.
