You have all been working SO hard in preparation for your tests. There’s not long to go now and it’s important to keep the momentum going over the Easter break! So, in addition to enjoying lots of chocolate; fresh air and family time, it would be very beneficial to keep the revision going. Some areas to focus on include the following topics. Your Pearson revision guides and workbooks will include much of this.
Active and Passive voice
Verb tenses – (simple present/past, present/past perfect, present/past progressive)
Hyphens, dashes, brackets
Commas for clarity
Apostrophes for contraction (we’ve) and possession (Harry’s bag)
Word classes – nouns (proper, abstract, common, collective), verbs, adjectives, adverbs, pronouns, prepositions, determiners, conjunctions etc.
Spelling of homophones
Co-ordinates in 4 quadrants
Properties of 2D and 3D shapes (including circles)
Angles (measuring and calculating missing angles)
Area and perimeter
Measures – converting units of length, mass and capacity. Problem solving with measures.
Interpreting data (bar charts, pictograms, line graphs and pie charts)
There are many online games available too which could help. Topmarks offers many different maths games – just check that they are at a challenging enough level for you!
