Year 6 SATs Support

To help you prepare for our SATs assessments, follow the links to the websites we use in school where you will find lots of activities, examples and support for areas you would like to revise. We will also be sending home revision guides which the children will be expected to complete a few pages of weekly. We will catch up with the children in their weekly revision sessions and go over any misconceptions they may have. 

Don't forget, we will add some videos on Seesaw and you have access to Spelling Shed, TTRockstars and can head to 'Hit the Button' to practise number bonds and times tables too.
