How to make sure you’re recovery ready for Term One

Even though it’s still the summer holidays, getting ready for the new school year is already roaring away. KS2-KS3 transition, baseline testing, getting pupils focused. It’s going to be a busy first term back.

Getting Year 5 & Year 6 pupils back on track can be a challenge, but here are a few things SATs Companion can help you to make everything run a little smoother.

1. Inform curriculum with class data

Running an initial baseline test with SATs identifies gaps from the get-go. You can choose from multiple report types (Individual, Gap, Class & Group) to help highlight areas of intervention. This can be scheduled using SATs Companion, face-face lesson time, or extra homework practice. The platform can help you build a tailored learning plan for each pupil, with both formative and summative tests. Also, the different reports help clear up class misconceptions, review intervention topics and more.

2. Maintain class engagement

The platform’s personalised rewards help to reinforce independent learning & motivation. Ensuring a positive and engaging learning experience is crucial for pupils to grow & build confidence. Your class can access 30,000+ practice questions covering all key Maths & English topics. SATs Companion recommends personalised topics for key areas of improvement.

3. Target and close gaps

Early intervention can greatly improve pupil’s overall attainment and confidence. Micro-reporting from a question-level analysis covers the responses given for each topic by every student all the way down to each stage of the question response. SATs Companion allows you to analyse the score percentage across the entire class, helping to identify spaces in your pupil’s understanding.

4. Prioritise homework and extra practice

The home usage report helps you keep track of pupil’s progress outside of lesson time. Understanding how your student engages with the platform outside of a classroom setting provides an extra layer of depth to your intervention plan. For example, if they have a higher number of questions answered for English topics compared to Maths, this may indicate they are struggling with numeracy. 

We hope SATs Companion helps strengthen your class’s progress through all stages of KS2.  help refresh & brighten up your child’s summer catch-up.
