Our hugely popular SATs eBook is back in its fourth edition. SATs: Practice Makes Perfect has been written especially for all parents whose children are due to sit their SATs. In plain, straightforward language it tells you everything you need to know to help your child prepare for their exams, covering both Key Stage 1 and 2.
The first part, written for parents, contains a complete guide to SATs, answering every question you may have about these important exams. The second part includes study skills worksheets, SATs worksheets, practice questions and marking guidelines.
Adverbs, clauses, correct punctuation and sentence analysis are all part of the new KS2 SATs Grammar, punctuation and spelling test that all Year 6 children now sit. Help your child revise in preparation for the May assessments with our practice papers, written in the style of the 'SPAG' test.
Free KS2 SATs English, maths and science papers from 2003 to 2014 are available to download now, but please bear in mind that these papers reflect the 'old-style' SATs test administered before 2016, though they can still be used to help your child familiarise themselves with exam technique.
From 2016 children will take new-style KS2 SATs tests for the first time. As the tests have been completely overhauled, official past papers are not available, though the government has released some 'mock' KS2 SATs papers for teacher use.
TheSchoolRun have produced five mock papers for KS2 maths SATs and KS2 English SATs, available exclusively to subscribers for at-home practice.
