Year 2 SATS

SATs (Standard Assessment Tests)  papers are compulsory national tests for primary school pupils.  The Year 2 children do their SATS papers in May.  There is not a set date and the intention is to keep the children relaxed and happy.  It may even be that your child enjoys doing these activities.  The Year 2 pupils will be practising the skills involved including becoming familiar with the style of the tests.  Further information:  https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/2017-national-curriculum-tests-for-key-stages-1-and-2-information-for-parents

There are 2 reading comprehension papers and 2 maths papers.  The first reading comprehension has questions below each section of the text whereas the second paper has a separate question booklet and is of a level that is a considerable challenge for many Year 2 children.  The first maths paper has arithmetic questions and the second one involves reasoning.

Writing is teacher assessed and does not involve a specific test.

 

The notorious Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar test is optional this year.  The children in Class 1 will continue to be taught this part of the curriculum within Literacy and Phonics sessions but will not be given the formal test.
