SATs KS1 YEAR 2 W E A LL M AT TE R What are the SATS? SATs are Statutory Assessment Tests

At the end of Year 2, children take SATs in: Reading English grammar, punctuation and spelling Maths No formal assessment for writing evidence is gathered over the year.

Tests will take place during May How are the SATs administered? KS1 SATs don't have to be administered according to a nationally-set timetable in a specific week.

Schools are free to manage the timetable and will aim to administer the tests in the classroom in a low-stress, low-key way; some children won't even be aware they've taken them.

Reading The reading test for Year 2 pupils is made up of two separate papers: Paper 1 consists of a selection of texts totalling 400 to 700 words, with questions interspersed Paper 2 comprises a reading booklet of a selection of

passages totalling 800 to 1100 words. Children will write their answers in a separate booklet Each paper is worth 50 per cent of the marks, and should take around 30 minutes, but children are not be strictly timed, as the tests are not intended to assess childrens ability to work at speed.

The texts in the reading papers cover a range of fiction, non-fiction and poetry, and get progressively more difficult towards the end of the test. Teachers have the option to stop the test at any point that they feel is appropriate for a particular child.

Reading There are a variety of question types: Multiple choice Ranking/ordering e.g. Number the events below to show in which order they happened in the story

Matching e.g. Match the character to the job that they do in the story Labelling e.g. Label the text to show the title Find and copy e.g. Find and copy one word that shows what the weather was

like in the story Short answer e.g. What does the bear eat? Open-ended answer e.g. Why did Lucy Grammar, Spelling and Punctuation (SPAG)

There are two separate papers in grammar, spelling and punctuation: Paper 1: a 20-word spelling test taking

approximately 15 minutes and worth 20 marks. Paper 2: a grammar, punctuation and vocabulary test, in two sections of around 10 minutes each (with a break in between, if necessary), worth 20 marks. This will involve a mixture of selecting the right answers e.g. through multiple choice, and

writing short answers. In 2017 the KS1 SPAG test remains optional, so schools can choose whether to administer it to their pupils.

Maths The Key Stage 1 maths test is made up of two papers: Paper 1: arithmetic, worth 25 marks and taking around 15 minutes. Paper 2: mathematical fluency, problem-solving and reasoning, worth 35 marks and taking 35 minutes,

with a break if necessary. There are a variety of question types: multiple choice, matching, true/false, constrained (e.g. completing a chart or table;

drawing a shape) less constrained (e.g. children have to show or explain their method). Children are NOT allowed to use any practical resources

Paper 1 ~ Arithmetic test This paper will test your child on their knowledge of the four operations - addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. The questions are all in number sentences, with no word problems.

Paper 2 ~ Reasoning How will the tests be marked? Tests are set externally but are marked by teachers within the school. Children are given a scaled score.

What is meant by scaled scores? Each pupils raw test score (number they got right) will be converted into a score on a scale, either at, above or below 100. 100 will always represent the national standard. The scale has a lower end point of 85 and an upper end point at 115.

A child who achieves the national standard (a score of 100) will be judged to have demonstrated sufficient knowledge in the areas assessed by the tests. Teacher assessments are also used to build up a picture of your childs learning and achievements.

Your child will also receive an overall result saying whether they have achieved the required standard in the tests. The Department for Education aims for 85 per cent of children to How do we help prepare your child?
