Keystage:  KS2, Year 6

New-style SATs papers were introduced at the end of May 2016. The new KS2 papers for maths and English reflect the revised primary curriculum in England.

The maths test is made up of three papers:

  • Paper 1 is an arithmetic test
  • Paper 2 and Paper 3 are problem-solving tests

Children will not be allowed to use maths aids like calculators in the tests.

Sample papers showing the sorts of questions that will be asked in the KS2 test have been produced for teachers by the Department for Education.

All officail KS2 maths SATs papers are available for free download from TheSchoolRun.

TheSchoolRun has also produced five complete mock papers, written in the style of the KS2 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 KS2 SATs practice papers

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

Paper 1 should take approximately 30 minutes to complete, and Paper 2 and Paper 3 around 40 minutes each.

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!
