Everyone received an Easter homework pack today with tasks to be completed over the Easter holidays. As we've said before, it's important to have a rest; but it's equally important to keep the brain cells ticking over so that everyone does their very best in the tests in May. Remember, there are only nine school days until the first test!
During the holidays, you need to have a rest... they're holidays after all. The trouble is, you don't want to lose the momentum you've built up these last few weeks in preparing for your SATs. We suggest spending 40 minutes every other day on revision (don't do it every day).
Use the revision books you bought earlier this year, the Y6 blog, Y6 bootcamps (remember the username & password). You can also use the big educational games sites listed below. Don't go on any old site - just because it's fun doesn't mean you'll be learning anything; you need to find games and sites that will teach you what you need to know - if it's fun as well, great.
Decide what you need to work on:
Woodlands revision page
BGfL Booster games
Mr Nussbaum maths word problems
Mrs Pitts revision site - just discovered this; it's brilliant
Games for the Brain - to keep your thinking ticking over
ESLbits basic comprehension exercises - not quite SATs-style but they do encourage close-reading
Revision sites that collate web games by topic. First six days are free, then subscribe for £9.50 a year. You can access these sites elsewhere for free but the indexing by topic is very useful. Science boot camp is free.
