Maintaining a love of learning can be a challenge as assessments approach, but the appeal of technology keeps lessons exciting, igniting pupil interest and boosting attainment.
With over 23,000 multimedia resources including ready-made lessons, practice questions, videos and activities, the Discovery Education Espresso platform provides schools with a one-stop-shop for SATs preparation, reinvigorating lessons in the months leading up to the tests. It also provides teachers with much-needed support, equipping them with the tools and expert insight to approach SATs with confidence.
Discovery Education Espresso’s differentiated resources help schools deliver bespoke SATs preparation for every child. The platform’s teacher-planning area helps teachers to identify gaps and provides resources to match, setting tasks to match pupil ability and deepen understanding. The content is highly flexible, and teachers are especially enthusiastic about the vast number of curriculum-matched resources on offer.
Ready-made lesson routes also help pupils to prepare for KS2 SATs. Discovery Education Espresso has created a range of new routes covering the assessed criteria for the KS2 Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling, Reading and Mathematics tests: perfect for SATs revision.
Bring lessons to life
Maintaining pupil interest, and making lessons exciting, can be a challenge during the pre-test period. Many teachers find that a digital approach is far more effective than using paper-based resources.
Discovery Education Espresso’s videos cover every SATs subject area, offering simple step-by-step explanations of key concepts tailored to each paper. The lively, interactive content also helps teachers to inject fun into revision and bring lessons back to life. Pupils can also have access to the platform at home, enabling preparation to continue outside of school time, and to be supported by parents.
Extra Support for Teachers
Discovery Education Espresso provides schools with extra support in the build-up to SATs. Online planning tools enable teachers to select SATS-matched content, and even ready-made lessons, instantly. They can also join the Discovery Education Community, one of the fastest-growing professional networks for teachers in the UK, and a vital source of networking, idea sharing and pre-SATs support.
Instant impact on learning
With Discovery Education Espresso’s high-quality, curriculum-matched resources and advice at their fingertips, teachers can feel supported and confident that their pupils are not only fully prepared for SATs – but that their love of learning is maintained.
