Numeracy SATs Revision guides from @GHammondMaths

A few weeks ago I received a tweet from @GHammondMaths sharing this fantastic revision guide to Year 6 SATs tests. He had broken down every question into different categories. He then created a PDF of each category where every question had a link to a YouTube video tutorial that he had created!

MIND BLOWN!

Such a great idea and will help endless teachers up and down the country who will be building up to the SATs. The resource will help children work independently, take questions at their own pace and solve the problem of one teacher being in 30 different places.

Here is an example of one of the PDF files about BODMAS -



YOU CAN DOWNLOAD THE WHOLE PACKAGE OF PDF FILES HERE!

What Gareth has also done now is add the YouTube tutorials to every past paper, as the example demonstrates -




YOU CAN DOWNLOAD ALL OF THE PAST SATS PAPERS HERE

If you have access to iPads in the classroom, download these resources to a shared Dropbox account so children can view on an iPad. They can then easily navigate to the tutorial videos if they are stuck or to check their answer. You could also send these home as extra revision knowing children have access to support if they're stuck.

Gareth has also put together a short assembly using powerpoint to share with children with information on how to access the YouTube channel - You can download that here.

Make sure you follow @GHammondMaths and if you do find the resource useful, please tweet to tell him. He will have put hours of work into this and to share it for free is amazing! I always try to give credit if I find inspiration from others and there is nothing worse than seeing people use those ideas without acknowledging you for creating it or even worse trying to pass it off as their own. So please if you find this useful or anything on the blog please make sure you give a shout out to where the original idea came from. Thanks to Gareth once again!

  1. These look great. I'm particularly interested in the PDF files. However, when I download from the link the document is a .rar file, which I cannot open. Is this right or should it be a PDF file?

    Many thanks

    1. All the examples have been compressed into a .rar file, making it a smaller size to share. To unzip it, you will need to install Winrar - http://www.rarlab.com/download.htm

      This will extract all the files for you to access.

      Hope this helps!
