EASTER HOLIDAY

 

Over the Easter Holiday, you have been given plenty of resources to help you revise.  Use these to help keep your brain focused on the end goal!

 

Remember when you return back to school you only have 13 teaching days before your SATs. 

 

Use the list of websites and tips below to help you with your revision over the holidays...You have all worked so hard this term and I am very proud of you all!

Welcome to Hazel Class' website page.  

 

In Hazel Class, we are working hard to revise for our SATs.  We have been learning different study techniques and strategies to support our revision. To support the needs of every child, we have now devised smaller teaching groups to target specific learning.

 

Revision websites:

 

The children have also been given hints and tips to support them through the test papers:

Reading:

  • Skim the first text. Underline key vocab, features etc.
  • Read each question – look how many marks. Pick easy, quick ones first.
  • If it signals where to look in the text, find it and underline it.
  • Re-read the question carefully. Work out what it is asking you to do.
  • Notice anything in bold.
  • Find and copy – do exactly what it says.
  • Word meaning questions – do NOT use the same word to explain. Remember to give the meaning of the word in the sentence!
  • 2/3 mark questions: answer in a full sentence. Minimum 2 points and then back it up using evidence from the text. You can copy parts of the text to prove what you say!
  • Try to answer every question, but if you are stuck, move on. Come back to it later.
  • Re-read your work if you have time. Does it make sense and will someone else be able to read it?
  • One text and its questions at a time. DON’T STOP!

 

Maths:

  • Start with easy, quick questions – you do not have to do it in order.
  • Read the question carefully – they may try to trick you!
  • Work out carefully and clearly – use all space except the bar code if needed.
  • Answer the question – with units if necessary.
  • 2/3 mark questions: usually, you have to explain. Give detailed answers – NEVER write ‘I just know,’ – you will get 0! Imagine you are explaining it to win some money! If they take a long time, remember that some questions only take 10-20 seconds.
  • Try to answer every question, but if you are stuck, move on. Come back to it later.
  • Re-read your work if you have time. Does it make sense and will someone else be able to read it? If you have finished in ten minutes, this is not usually a good sign – go back and try some questions again.
  • Don’t stop until you are finished.

Reading Strategies

In Hazel Class, we aim to be role models for the rest of the school, by following our school values.  This year our school value display was based on co-operation.  We all wrote our own definition for our own understanding of co-operation. 

Our School Values

WW2

This term our topic has been all about WW2.  We have learned all about the history of WW2 including: evacuation, Anderson shelters, rationing and what it was like to be involved in the war as both a soldier and their families.
