KS2 SATs Intervention (Y5-6)

Everything you need to transform Year 6 maths attainment

Improve KS2 SATS results through flexible interventions and resources for Year 5 and 6 pupils

An easy-to-implement, year-round approach to KS2 SATs preparation

  • Weekly 1-to-1 teaching for your target pupils to secure core KS2 concepts
  • Lesson content which builds familiarity with SATs questions
  • Regular reporting to support upper KS2 planning & teaching
  • Downloadable assessment, resources and CPD to raise attainment for all pupils
place value lesson objectives
Diagnostic assessment

Identify and prioritise individual learning gaps

In September we begin by assessing your target pupils against Year 6 expectations.

You decide whether you’d like lesson objectives for the intervention lessons to be automatically selected or if you’d rather choose from our curriculum of over 270 lessons.

Develop mathematical talk and reasoning

Weekly online lessons are delivered to your target pupils on a one-to-one basis by specialist tutors, who adapt the pitch and pace to each learner.

One-to-one conversation about maths helps pupils develop their reasoning and problems solving skills. They are challenged to demonstrate that they fully understand each question, a key skill for SATs.

SATS Programme 2019-20

Enquire by 24th May 2019 to receive the remainder of this term at no additional cost

Build familiarity with SATs questions

All lessons incorporate problem questions for pupils to talk through with their tutor (the proportion of the lesson spent on practice questions increases between January and May).

Pupils become more confident quickly and accurately applying their skills in a range of contexts and drawing upon a variety of methods simultaneously.

Keep up to date with progress

You can quickly and easily see the content your pupils are covering using our online platform.

Weekly reports ensure you’re kept in the loop and are able to feed this assessment into your class teaching, whilst progress overviews capture impact across a term or year.

Address target areas across your Year 5 and 6 cohorts

With our intervention programmes your school gets access to our online resource library, the Third Space Maths Hub. You can choose from hundreds of resources to support teaching across the whole of Key Stage 2, not just those Year 6 pupils taking part in the online lessons.

This includes a whole range of SATs-specific resources, from progress packs (including Fluent and Five and Rapid Reasoning) to practice papers, to modelled question videos for your pupils.

The right support at the right time

The best way to be prepared for SATs is to build solid foundations as early as possible.  That’s why the KS2 SATs intervention follows a structured three phase approach:

Autumn Term
Foundation

Lessons focus on securing core KS2 concepts and plugging gaps.

Spring Term
Consolidation

Lessons focus on consolidating, revising and practising for SATs.

Summer Term
Transition

Lessons focus on preparing Y5 pupils for the transition to Y6.
