Things you can do to help your child at home

You could download sample SATs papers to work through with your child – focusing on a handful of questions at a time:

Grammar and Punctuation:

  • Look at the use of full stops, capitals, commas, brackets, question marks, exclamation marks, speech marks and apostrophes. Find examples of these when reading – discuss where, and why they have been used.
  • Understand what nouns, pronouns, determiners, prepositions, contractions, conjunctions, adjectives, verbs and adverbs are and how to use them.
  • Know how to add suffixes to words.
  • In sentences, check that our child is able to make subjects and verbs agree, putting verbs in the correct tense, inserting words with the correct plurals and recognising a subordinate clause.

Reading:

  • Encourage your child to read non-fiction texts as well as stories.
  • Read together. Take turns to read out load to help improve their reading and listening skills.
  • Ask them questions about what they have read – they could also test you when it is our turn to read!

Maths:

  • Lean and rehearse times tables to 12 x 12. Recall the corresponding division facts.
  • Check that your child is secure with their written methods for +, -, x and ÷
