Maths KS2 Revision & Practice with Collins #BackToSchoolBooks

backtoschoolbooksNext up in our series of essential Back To School book buys is the KS2 Maths revision text from Collins.
Anyone with a child entering Yr6 this year will know the SATS are looming large – love them or loathe them (does anyone in the country actually love the SATS? I think not…), they’re headed to a classroom near you.

And I found through bitter experience that the best way to make them as painless as possible is to simply feel prepared – 10 & 11 yr olds are no different than the rest of us. When they feel confident, they don’t stress.

And we all want a stress-free year for them, don’t we?

I found a brilliant thing to do was have regular sessions with a revision book – which also sets a great habit for later in school life and they’re facing more important exams, too.

And this revision book from Collins is simply a brilliant one t have on the home bookshelf  as soon as they start KS2. Because it covers everything from age 7, if there’s homework you’re not sure of, or an area that your child isn’t confident in, then dipping into the revision book can often help. Matched to the new National Curriculum, it has clear and accessible explanations of every topic, with lots of practice opportunities throughout (new research shows repeated practice is more effective than repeated study).

There are five spaced practice opportunities for every topic:

1. Quick tests to check understanding
2. Practice questions organised into three levels of increasing difficulty
3. Review questions later in the book
4. Mixed practice questions at the end of the book
5. Free downloadable flash cards for use in the classroom and at home

Buy the Collins KS2 SATs Revision and Practice – New 2014 Curriculum – KS2 Maths Revision Guide direct from the Collins site. It’s less than £6, and you’ll never regret having it there for when you need it.

A 70's child, I’ve been married for a Very Long Time, and appear to have made four children, and collected one large and useless dog along the way. I work, I have four children, I have a dog… ergo, I do not do dusting or ironing. I began LittleStuff back in (gulp) 2004. I like huge mugs of tea. And Coffee. And Cake. And a steaming cone of crispy fresh fluffy chips, smothered in salt and vinegar. #healthyeater When I grow up I am going to be quietly graceful, organised and wear lipstick every day. In the meantime I *may* have a slight butterfly-brain issue.
