KS1 English SATs practice paper set A
Help your child get used to the KS1 SATs format with our English practice papers (based on the pre-2016 SATs format), exclusive to theSchoolRun and written by a primary school teacher. Each practice paper includes reading comprehension papers (information text and story text), a writing assessment and a spelling test, as well as answers.
Key stage: Year 2, KS1
Subject: SATs, Year 2 SATs, English

From 2016, children in Year 2 will sit 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.

TheSchoolRun's SATs resources include revision tips, spelling strategies and speaking and listening advice.
