History of Key Stage 1 Testing In Year Two

Historically children would be teacher assessed at the end of their KS1 course. However for 2016 it was decided to introduce formal tests in Maths and English for children.

While children are very young and the difference between their ages within year groups is most marked at this stage the introduction of formal testing nevertheless went ahead.

Sample papers (the same as the real thing) were released to enable teachers to prepare children for the new tests in May 2016. Those sample papers together with the actual Ks1 Year 2 SATS papers which children sat are available to download free below.

What SATS Papers will children sit at the end of Key Stage 1

The SATS Papers children will sit are as follows:

English – 1 paper cover Grammar and Punctuation, 1 paper covering Spelling and 2 reading papers.

Maths – 1 Arithmetic paper and 1 reasoning paper.

Further details on the papers and how the papers will be administrated are included on the pages below:

These papers were taken by children in 2016 or were the sample tests produced by the education authorities to show what the new format tests would look like. There are two complete sets of papers in the current KS1 SATS format available in both Maths and English.

We suggest that you don’t just dive straight into these papers. Ideally to get best value from them they should be used as part of a structured programme of help for your child.

We have seen thousands of parents go through KS1 and now KS1 SATS. There are several approaches which can be best summarised as follows. We have developed a free preparation guide for each style of preparation. If you’d like to see what we suggest then just click through to the style you feel best reflects the approach you may take.

1/ You want to support your child through the KS1 syllabus during year one and year two.

2/ You don’t want to do any work with your child during term time but will try to source some revision materials for them during each summer holidays to make sure they don’t go backwards during the long break.

3/ You have decided you want to do something to support their learning from the beginning of year two on wards in the six months before they will sit their KS1 SATS papers.

4/ You have made a decision to help them in the final month as the pressure at school rises to make sure they deliver of their best.

Different families have different amounts of time available to help their children and equally different schools do more or less with children. We wouldn’t suggest any of the routes we have separated out is the correct one as each family will differ, but we hope there is something there that will be close to what you want to do and therefore they will be helpful. Please feel free to use the free guides. They come complete with resource recommendations.
