Year 6 is the final year of Key Stage 2 and at the end of it come KS2 SATs! Whilst there are a number of topics that children will polish off, Year 6 is largely revising past topics. Our advice is to start revising now!
In addition to making sure your child is confident in the areas they’ve learned up to now, it’s also important that they’re familiar with how Key Stage 2 SATs exams work. You can print off past KS2 SATs papers for them to practise at home.
In Maths, children will learn about square, prime and negative numbers. They will become confident in multiplying and dividing with numbers up to four digits. They will also cover more complicated work with fractions, decimals and percentages. Children will also start to learn about ratio and proportion and will be introduced to algebra. They will need to measure the perimeter, area and volume of different shapes, plus convert between units of measurement. Coordinates in all four quadrants are introduced in Year 6, as is the interpretation and construction of pie charts.
In English, children will enhance their inference of characters' motives and feelings and be able to discuss and evaluate how authors use figurative language. They will learn to spell a variety of more sophisticated words with different prefixes and suffixes. They will also think about how words are related by learning about synonyms and antonyms. When writing, children will need to select words carefully in order to demonstrate their full vocabulary. They will be expected to use brackets, dashes and semi-colons correctly.
