English It is essential to increase the vocabulary of every pupil. This also ensures that their writing is more stimulating and interesting. A love of reading helps ensure pupils have good imagination to make their writing more colourful. 
Maths Every pupil needs to know their tables so working through these papers will help reinforce them. Time and measurement are well worth working through as every test will include questions on these.
Foundation Stage Foundation stage children learn more easily by enjoying number songs, songs on the alphabet and Nursery Rhymes. They also love to colour and experiment with drawing which helps with tidy presentation.
Spelling and Phonics Spelling and phonics are essential as correctly spelt words will help children throughout life. It is worth revising the silent e as many pupils find this tricky.
Science The human body is susceptible to disease so learn about this. Science vocabulary can be tricky so checking it is good. Breathing is essential so read the paper on this.
lesson plan
