Dear [NAME], We have set up a series of pages in response to our users' requests for guidance on what is being covered in each year group. These pages bring together a range of maths and English papers and also outline the science curriculum. Remember children work at different levels in different subjects so it is important to find work that suits your child, so please try pages for different age groups to ensure your child is working at the right level.
Year 1 In Year 1, children will consolidate the work done in Reception so try our maths paper and see how much they remember. In Year 1 pupils will be widening their vocabulary and English Ideas for Year 1 will help here. We have included an outline of the National Curriculum in science for each year on the relevant pages. In science this year, you will find Who eats what for KS1 and Animal homes for KS1 useful to support your child's learning. History may include The first aeroplane flight.
Year 3 Mental arithmetic is a topic many children need to practise and here we show one of our range of papers. Waiting comprehension is one of a huge selection of comprehension papers on the site. If children are confident with comprehension at this stage, it will stand them in good stead for the future. In science, Earth's magnetic field will be relevant. In Year 3 geography, some children will study their local area so help them with creating a Leaflet on your home town.
Year 5 Word problems need comprehension skills as well as maths skills, so practice is helpful. By Year 5, children will be expected to write creatively showing a good use of language - try ourVocabulary paper for Year 5to help with this. Water and air resistance Year 5 is written for this year group.Children often study the Victorians in Year 5 - find out what they know with our Victorians Quiz. Learning about other religions forms part of the syllabus and we have many resources including Hindu places of worship.
Year 8 This Year 8 revision paper is good for consolidating work done previously and for finding any gaps in knowledge. Brackets and simplifying for Year 8 is a useful topic. Some work done at this stage will be cross-curricular and The Holocaust brings together work in history and RE. Visiting a synagogue and other places of worship helps pupils understand the wide variety of beliefs they will encounter.
Year 9+Word problems are enjoyable to do and help pupils with the reading of questions. Comprehension for Year 9 Alexander will help with history as well as English. At this stage, pupils are learning about moving on in the world and perhaps thinking aboutVotingfor the first time. Learning about 20th century inventions teaches pupils about both history and science.
