Key Stage 1 SATs English practice papers A
Since 2016, children in Year 2 hav taken a new style of SATs exam in English and maths to reflect the updated National Curriculum. These practice papers, written especially for TheSchoolRun and available exclusively to subscribers, are based on the old-style KS1 SATs, used up until 2015, but can still be used to give your child at-home exam practice.
Designed to replicate the style and format of the old SATs exam, in these papers your child will need to complete two reading comprehensions, a short writing task and a simple spelling paper. Answers are provided in your download, so you can work through your child's completed paper with them.
This is a KS1 level 2 paper (the level most children were expected to read by the end of KS1, prior to the introduction of a new primary grading system). A more challenging level 3 SATs English paper is also available for download.
For more information and advice about Year 2 SATs head to our KS1 SATs content area.
To help your child practise the English and maths skills they'll be tested on at the end of Y2 look through our KS1 SATs Learning Journey.
