When is the 2015 KS2 SATs week- SATs dates

2015 is now upon us and I would like to take this opportunity to wish you a very fruitful and happy 2015 year.

So when is this special week and when are the specific SATs dates for each subject? This is the question that you are probably asking if your child attends year 6.

We hope that you will find these SATs dates useful and informative especially if you are planning extra revision sessions or if you are the kind of parent who likes to organise different aspects of your child’s studies before his/her SATs.

The changes that will have the most impact are the ones related to maths.

KS2 SATs revision books Part1:Revise and Shine – English book

This book has been recommended by my son’s year 6 teacher and we bought the English and the Maths ones. I must say, I was truly impressed by them.


Each day’s work summarised on 2 pages

The lesson for each day consists of a quick description of key features followed on the next page by exercises related to the lesson. What is the most encouraging for children is the fact that the work of each day is covered on only 2 pages which can be quickly done by a child who doesn’t want to feel that they are doing a lot.
