Dear [NAME] May is an important time of the year in schools - for many pupils it is examination time and we wish all these students every success. As the weather is milder it's a great time to balance work with outdoor activities and sports.

KS1 EnglishIt would be fun for your child to imagine being able to disappear into space, so find out what happens to Tommy and Timmy in Adventure in space. Ask them to write a story about an adventure they have had.
KS3 EnglishSome poems on the First World War conjure very graphic and dramatic pictures. The story of the Titanic is also a very moving and dramatic story. These papers are a great way to improve English skills and learn about these events at the same time.
KS1 mathsAsk your child to try our mental maths paper and test themselves against you or another adult. The result may surprise you! Can your child measure accurately - see if they can measure how tall they are.
KS2 mathsDoes your child get pocket money? It is a very useful way to teach children how to recognise coins and to learn how much things cost. This is a good time of the year to revise with your children so that they do well in any school tests.
Foundation StagePupils in this age group will be ending their early years at school. They do need to understand one to one correspondence as well as enjoying rhymes and music which can help with phonic learning.
SpellingEveryone needs to spell accurately and understand the spelling rules. As pupils get older they will need to write more quickly and to use more elaborate vocabulary. So be sure to check the spelling in all their work.
PhonicsPhonics help pupils learn all the spelling rules and can give children confidence in increasing the vocabulary that they use in writing. Encourage your child to try these papers and ensure that you are preparing him/her for the future.
