High-quality free maths SATS resources for KS1 and KS2 parents

We are passionate that alongside our incredible one-to-one tuition, that we help parents across the UK grow their children’s confidence in maths. That is why we have created, in conjunction with experienced teachers and educators, a host of free resources that you can use in the run up to SATs.

Resource name: Times Tables Practice Packs

Free SATs Downloads Times Tables Practice Resource For Year 6

Who is this resource for?

This times tables pack contains a series of practice questions for Years 1 through to Year 6.

How should you use this resource with your child?

We’ve created a times tables revision pack for Years 1,2,3,4,5 and 6, and each pack contains 3 times tables tests.

Children can complete the test themselves, and should hope to see the time taken on each test decrease as they go through more practice papers.

You then have the choice to let your child mark the test themselves, or to mark them with you if they feel like they need someone to discuss their answers with.

Why is this resource important in the run up to SATs

It’s a fact that is universally agreed upon by teachers, that the sooner a child can master multiplication the better.

This is a core area of maths, and one which parents can really help with, and with times tables forming the basis for a huge proportion of all of the maths your child will face in primary school, it is a topic that should be given due care and attention in the run up to SATs.

How can I get this resource?

Resource name: Year 6 SATs Practice Paper Pack (Papers 1-3) – Pack 1

Year 6 Maths SATs Paper Resource For Year 6 Free SATs Download

Who is this resource for?

This practice paper pack has been designed for students preparing for the Year 6 Maths SATs.

How should you use this resource with your child?

This pack contains 3 separate maths SATs papers. They are:

  • Maths Paper 1 (Arithmetic);
  • Maths Paper 2 (Reasoning);
  • Maths Paper 3 (Reasoning).

These papers have been created to give your child a chance to prepare for their assessments, and to help them feel less nervous when the time comes to sit them for real. Thus helping them to approach the SATs with a sense of calm confidence.

All you need to do is:

  1. Give your child a pencil, rubber, ruler and protractor (if you’ve got one) but no calculator or electronic device.
  2. Then ask them to sit one paper a day – no more – over the course of a few days.

We recommend you encourage as near as possible test conditions. Stick to the time limit

recommended (30 minutes for Paper 1, 40 minutes for paper 2, 40 minutes for paper 3), and try not to help your child with any questions.

Tell them not to worry if they can’t do a question – they may not even have covered that topic yet at school (this is normal) but to move on and come back to it.

You can then mark each of the papers using the guidance provided in the document in the free downloadable pack.

Why is this resource important in the run up to SATs

As the saying goes, practice makes perfect and this is certainly the case when it comes to the Year 6 Maths SATs.

Giving your child the opportunity to complete a SATs paper in an environment that mimics that of a real life exam can help to reduce stress for them on their big day, and to help you realise where any potential knowledge gaps may be.

You should sit your child down to complete each of the papers in a location that closely mimics the exam environment that they will be sitting them in in school.

All instructions are included within the practice papers, so as long as you take the time to read them through with your child before they begin, you should not encounter any issues.

Why is this resource important in the run up to SATs

It is important to introduce your child to SATs style questions early on in primary school as the sooner they become familiar with their layout and style, the less worried and more confident they will be about them come Year 6.

Maths learning is best done little and often, so don’t set too many questions at any given time or you could risk your child becoming disengaged with the work.
