This year Fizz will be sitting her first lot of educational testing (KS1 SATS)and although I am not keen on this at all of course I want to be able to help her as much as possible.
At 7 she’s a sponge when it comes to school and we are very lucky that our school are quite open to keeping the children as stress free as possible. It’s hard because class sizes are large (30 per class) and there seems to be less and less learning by play. At home we try not to enforce sitting down and try and learn as we go. We are quite laid back when it comes to learning, but we are lucky that Fizz is very proactive too.
However I do sometimes feel the need to check in on what she is learning, of course if I ask her she’s all ‘I don’t remember’ so when I was approached by Education Quizzes to try out their website it came at a really great time!
They have a daily blog which is geared to helping parents. Everything from learning about nature to quizzes and information on subjects including bullying – I logged in and was found such an amazing resource.
The quizzes are written by teachers which means that you can guarantee it’s what the school are teaching too. It is a great way to encourage and back up your child’s learning as well as your own knowledge too.
So what do you get when you log in?
Study of the school curriculums is made easy and enjoyable with our suites of KS1, KS2, 11-Plus, KS3 and GCSE quizzes.
Quizzes are written by teachers
Subscription is monthly £9.95 and can be cancelled at any time – compared to a private tutor this really is an affordable amount. However to keep costs down you could also ask your school to invest too – this starts from as little as £2 and means every pupil could have access. I like the idea of being able to have these for Fizz’s sleepovers though!
So do you have any tips for me while Fizz is taking her SATS? I would love to hear them!
