As a Mum of three children, I’m always looking for ways to help to boost their learning and development. I have found though that as my eldest son approaches secondary school age, there are areas where I’m just not up to scratch! I’ve found this particularly with his Maths homework. Recently, he’s been learning how to do long division and I’m ashamed to admit that it just goes straight over my head! This is why I’ll gladly take any help I can when it comes to year 6 maths! When I found out about Education Quizzes, I was really excited about what they offer and how they could help my children to progress.
What is Education Quizzes?
With Education Quizzes you can take an active role in your child’s learning, help increase their confidence in classroom subjects and spend a little quality one-to-one time together.
Education Quizzes is a website designed to help children to boost their learning depending on their age and stage of development. When you register, you have access to a range of fun and engaging quizzes for children from Key Stage 1 (ages 5-7), all the way through to GCSE (ages 14-17). As I’m particularly focussed on helping my 11 year old at the moment, I dived straight into Key Stage 2 Maths.
We started off with a multiplication and division quiz. The way the questions are worded really make you think! I was glad to see that the quizzes weren’t timed as I often find the children feel unnecessarily pressured and rush their answers when they’re against the clock. My 11 year old is pretty good at Maths, I’d say it is his strongest subject and he’s working above the average level for his age group at school. These questions really did push him though and I also noticed that he didn’t always read the question properly before answering. Now I know he does that, I can help him to improve and make sure he reads the question a couple of times before trying to answer. This will be a valuable thing for him to get into the habit of doing before his SATS.
Vast range of subjects
As well as Maths, there is a huge range of subjects within the KS2 section. You can really focus in on the area you want to work on with your child.
Each section is split into specific subject areas. For example, within English there is Connectives/Conjunctions, Comprehension, Nouns, Paragraphing and Their, There and They’re (a pet hate of mine when people get it wrong). You really can home in on individual areas with your child and focus on those niggly bits you feel they need a little extra help with.
Education Quizzes for Schools
Schools can sign up to Education Quizzes for the equivalent of as little as £2 per child per year! I think this is incredible value. The quizzes really do reinforce the children’s learning, enhancing what they’ve learnt in school and enabling the teachers to pick out the areas that they need a little more help with.
You can subscribe to Education Quizzes as a parent for a monthly fee of £9.95. You can cancel your subscription at any time which makes it perfect if you want to give your child a boost in the run up to their SATS.
We really enjoyed these quizzes and I could really see how they were helping my son. It was great to see him enjoying something and knowing that it was benefiting him at the same time.
