How to help your child at home

CGP Books

The CGP books are excellent resources that you can use at home to prepare your child for SATs. They are available in English, GPS, reading and maths and available on various websites: The UK's Favourite Educational Books | CGP Books

You can also prepare for SATs with these Bitesize 10 minute tests! Free KS2 SATS Online 10-Minute Tests | CGP Books

READING

Please encourage your child to read a range of different genres. The more they read, the better their vocabulary becomes, which also improves their independent writing.

UNFINISHED WORK

If work is unfinished within the lesson, then it will be sent home to complete.

The most helpful thing you can do this year is encourage your child to show independence, responsibility and to try their best!

Help them to make the most of their final year at Winkfield St Mary's.
