With the 2017 SATs coming around the corner fast, we thought we’d provide you with some support for helping your students gain confidence for the upcoming tests. So, instead of you searching around for lots of resources in doing this, we’ve given you a list of some on EducationCity to help your Year 6 students and the types of question they might be asked.

We’ve pulled together a selection of fantastic 11 Upper Key Stage 2 Activities on EducationCity that aim to support the learning of Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar. As well as this, students will be able to do the Activities at school via MyCity, our lesson planning tool, or even at home themselves with Home Access.
