How do you keep the momentum when SATs are over?
From our experience of teaching Year Six, the next month or so can be both a challenge and an opportunity. Inevitably, there is a slight lull after such a lead-up to SATs. And then, as the year rolls to a close, some students begin to have half an eye on their next step in September. It can be a challenge to keep the momentum going. However, the after-SATs period is a time of year that lends itself to creative, open-ended activities, lots of group work and tasks that show off the many skills that perhaps have been put on standby with such a focus on early May.
With this in mind, you might like to use some of these lively resources to keep your Year Sixes motivated, engaged and creative. Each resource is available via the Paypal button underneath it. If you'd like all three, then please use the button at the bottom of the page and we will give them to you for only £30 (a saving of £8).
