Maths Revision KS2
When it comes to education, the most important thing is that students are fully prepared for their assessments. After all, education is all about achieving good grades to better a child’s future.
That is why I have created this blog – to give you a quick overview of the KS2 Maths national curriculum, and provide some key information, top tips and a couple of quizzes for your child to have a go at!
Below I have put all of the information into sections so it’s easier for you to locate the information you want. Click on one of the titles, and then read the information!
These exams are used to determine how well your child is progressing, and whether they are at the required standard of education (ideal for a student in Key Stage 2).
During the exam, your child will be given 3 papers:
• Paper 1 – Arithmetic
• Paper 2 – Reasoning
• Paper 3 – Reasoning
During the arithmetic paper, your child will be provided with calculations in relation to addition, subtraction, multiplication, ratio, fractions, decimals and percentages.
These questions are designed to assess how well your child can calculate simple calculations – without the use of a calculator!
During the reasoning papers, your child be provided questions that require more logic and interpretation. These papers are designed so that students have more detail to work through, in order to reach the correct answer.
Often, your child will be provided with details of someone going shopping and the amount they spent, or someone waiting for a train and needs to work out their travel time – all of these are designed to create ‘stages’. Each question will usually have more than one stage, or will require to look at more than one thing.
As a parent, you should make sure that your child’s stress levels are kept to a minimum. That is why I have provided a few maths revision tips and preparation notes to help you and your child through their assessments.
• Encourage your child to be confident in their abilities. Show that you are proud.
• Make sure your child is getting enough sleep.
• Make sure they are eating balanced meals, especially for breakfast.
• Sit with them whilst they complete their revision books. This will show a great level of support.
• Encourage them to ask for help at school if they are struggling with anything.
• Reassure your child and make them feel confident about their SATs.
• Set aside pre-planned time for revision.
• When going through their revision booklets, make sure that your child shows their working out where possible; they can gain extra marks for this!
• Make sure that your child has everything they need for their revision (i.e. pens, rulers, protractors etc).
• Be relaxed. When your child comes home from school, ensure that their home environment is relaxed. This will reduce the pressure your child may be feeling.
• After your child has done some revision, reward them with free time/play time. This will boost their energy levels and allow them to continue with their normal routine.
• We have also created five other Key Stage 2 Maths books which provide further practice for their SAT assessments. This guarantees that your child will be fully prepared for every type of question. Scroll to the bottom of the page for the maths revision guides!
