Year 2 Maths SATs Preparation

Nick Barwick By Nick Barwick

In order to get through all of the curriculum in time for SATs in Summer, you will need to carefully plan your teaching, beginning now with the Spring Term.

Hamilton's maths planning ensures that every part of the Year 2 content is covered before the statutory assessments in late May. Specifically, we provide:

  • Autumn Term: just over 14 weeks teaching
  • Spring Term: just over 11 weeks teaching
  • Summer Term
    • 2 weeks and 2 days teaching
    • 6 days of revision activities, covering addition, subtraction, multiplication, fractions and time
    • Supplementary teaching after the SATs

Teaching time is inevitably tight, as there is much to cover. Each teacher will need to pace this teaching to suit their class and their own term dates.

Overall, to fit ALL the teaching in, including revision, before the end of May, teachers who feel that they need to spend any extra time on a key skill should adjust by taking some time from a week where the teaching is of a skill which is not key, or a skill which children have already mastered. The Revision units do allow for revisiting and we have tried to second-guess those skills which a majority of teachers in Year 2 will feel it is necessary to revisit. However, preparation for Year 2 SATs will be driven by the specific needs of the children in your class.

Year 2 Revision resources are available now.

Hamilton also provide plans and blocks of teaching for the post-SATs period:
Puzzles and Problems includes an engaging variety of games, puzzles and investigations to promote practical activity, collaboration and mathematical reasoning;
Calculation provides consolidation of key number and calculation skills to prepare for Y3!
