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, 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.
Commissioned by TheSchoolRun to help you and your child feel confident about the SATs format and style, this KS1 paper offers information texts and story texts to read, comprehension questions to answer, spelling tests and a writing task.
Answers are included to help you mark the paper, or read teacher Alice Hart's explanation of what examiners are looking for in year 2 writing to understand how to help your child improve their work.
You'll find information and advice about all aspects of KS1 SATs in our Y2 assessments hub page.
Our KS1 SATs Learning Journey offers revision worksheets for the areas of maths and English tested in the end-of-key-stage tests.
