KS1 maths SATs practice paper E

TheSchoolRun KS1 SATs maths practice paper E
Use our new-style SATs practice papers, exclusively available to TheSchoolRun subscribers, to familiarise your child with the new-curriculum KS1 SATs paper format.
Keystage:  KS1, Year 2

KS1 SATs papers have changed to reflect the revised primary curriculum in England. Since the May 2016 assessments, the KS1 maths test has been made up of:

  • An arithmetic test (Paper 1)
  • A problem-solving test (Paper 2)

The use of maths aids like calculators, number lines and number squares is not allowed.

Sample papers showing the sorts of questions that will be asked in the KS1 test have been produced for teachers by the DfE.

You can also download the official 2016 KS1 maths SATs papers from TheSchoolRun for free.

TheSchoolRun has also produced five complete mock papers, written in the style of the KS1 SATs, for at-home practice and study. Prepared by primary-school teachers, the practice papers offer children the opportunity to practise the kinds of questions they might be asked to answer in the May assessments. All answers are provided so you can mark your child's work at home.

Please note: our practice papers have not been prepared for official assessment purposes and we are unable to offer scoring / levels information for teachers.

How to use these KS1 SATs practice papers

Allow your child to complete the tests in a quiet room without any help.

Paper 1 should take approximately 15 minutes to complete, and Paper 2 around 35 minutes.

Following the test, it will really help your child to sit down and work through the answers together – use the marking information provided. Remember to talk about what they have achieved and review any questions they may have found tricky. Encourage them to look carefully at the different question types so they feel confident about how to answer them quickly and accurately.

As with anything new, reassure your child that this practice test is simply a way of checking what they have been learning in class. Talking through the test and praising their understanding will really help them to feel confident and achieve their very best in May!
