We have just had parents evening for the girls and with Kylie being in her last year of primary school she will be having her SAT’S next year. Her teacher has said that she is below average, we knew she wasn’t the brightest in the class but to hear she is below average it kind of hurts. We are not in a position to be able to get her a tutor and teacher said the only way to get her up to standards is just to practice as much as we can. I did go and get a book from Wilko’s at £2 a book it’s not expensive but what happens after I have had to mark it myself and explain the best I can why an answer is wrong and either throw the book away and get another or save it and add more clutter to the flat.
That’s when I came across Education quizzes, an online quiz from KS1 right up to GCSE or should I say beyond as there is a bit for parents and not just a bit about what the kids do there is actual grown-up quizzes, finally something for me as well, sad I know but it’s the little things in life that please me. The parent part is called ‘Parent 999’ and has quizzes from back to school to keeping brains healthy to understanding Asperger’s.
So back to the kid’s part as that’s what it’s all about sorry I just got a bit excited about being included too. We have mainly just played the KS1 and KS2 parts as that is what the girls are in now. KS1 subjects are a slightly different to the KS2 ones but so are the lessons at school. Amelia is in KS1 and had a go on a few subjects but as there are so many we haven’t gone on all yet, for example, English has over 100 quizzes for them to try and that’s one subject. As well as English and maths they have a separate section for spelling and times tables. I loved the fact they had times tables as they don’t introduce them at the girl’s school until they are in KS2 so Amelia will be able to have nearly a whole year head start.
KS2 do have subjects such as Citizenship and Music which will help them for when they do go into KS3. Both girls have really enjoyed playing the quizzes online and I love the fact that whether you get the question right or wrong it explains the reason for the answer, where most quizzes or tests children do it will just be a tick or cross and the child is none the wiser. All quizzes say the date that your child last did them and what their score was, which is great if you want to go back to a subject to see if they have improved.
A bit about Education quizzes
Education quizzes are written by teachers and are very upfront about the £9.95 monthly fee which can be canceled anytime. They also offer a programme to schools where they can pay on behalf of the students for as little as £2.00 per year depending on the size of the school. Which is great as not every parent can afford the monthly fee. Their number one objective is to help children to be successful in school and to make learning fun and enjoyable.
