Contact UsYear 7 transfer Summer crash course


Our SATs Revision Programme has been devised by KS2 SATs markers to give year 6 children the opportunity to address the most important areas that will be tested in English and Maths. Each course covers the major components of the Maths or English Tests. Each course includes exam type questions and the teacher will demonstrate the solutions. We will also include general guidance on the essential components of successful answers. All pupils take home any worksheets used during the lessons and some supplementary work. This work will reinforce the content of the session and should be handed in for marking. The teacher will refer to the mark schemes and explain what the examiners are looking for in particular test questions.
The sessions are taught lessons, so all children will be working on the same materials.


This course is aimed at Level 4 and Level 5 National Curriculum in Mathematics. We will focus on ‘Number and Algebra’, ‘Shape Space and Measures’ & ‘Handling data’. We will cover the fundamental aspects of each of these Key Attainment targets. The course content has been carefully selected to improve each pupil’s score in the SATs test. Parents are encouraged to follow up the work at home and pupils take home all materials used in class.

Use of involving one or two operations. Add, subtract and order negative numbers.

‘Shape, Space and Measure’ will include

Drawing 2-D shapes. Reflecting shapes. Identity of symmetries of all 2-D shapes. Metric measure and imperial conversion. Perimeter and area. Construction and measurement of angles. Geometry rules of triangles.

As a new English test was introduced four years ago we have adjusted our course to help your child prepare for it. The new test will assess your child’s ability in grammar, punctuation, spelling and vocabulary. The original English writing test is to be discontinued but teachers will make a separate judgement on how well your child is doing on writing composition – such as composing letters or writing stories. There will still be a reading test, in the form of a comprehension and the course content has been carefully selected to improve each pupil’s score in the SATs test. Parents are encouraged to follow up the work at home and pupils take home all materials used in class.

‘Reading’ will include

Response to a range of texts. Show understanding of ideas, themes, events and characters. Use of inference and deduction from texts. Reference to text when explaining views. Locating and using ideas and information from the passage. Identifying characters, themes and key features to support answers. Selecting sentences, phrases and relevant information to support views. Retrieval and collation of information from a range of sources.

‘Writing’ will include

Writing to convey meaning in a range of forms for different readers. Development of varied and interesting style using characterisation, dialogue and description. Development and management of a theme or controlling idea. Use of a formal style. Development and sustenance of ideas. Appropriate organisation of writing for the purpose of the reader. Adventurous choice of vocabulary and use of words for effect. Use of simple, compound and complex sentences to extend meaning. Sentence punctuation including full stop, capitation, and question marks. Use of commas and apostrophes in sentences. Use of inverted commas and paragraphs in direct speech. Error correction for regular and complex polysyllabic words. Handwriting analysis targeting joined, clear and fluent style.
