Welcome to Year 6!

We would love to celebrate with you what we have been doing so far this year.

How to help your child prepare for the SATS



KS2 Reading

This consists of one paper with questions that are based on 3 passages of text. Pupils get 1 hour to complete the paper and will be answering many different question types including labelling, ranking and open-ended responses.


KS2 Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling (SPaG) Test

The written element of the SPaG SATs consists of a grammar and punctuation paper which lasts for 45 minutes.

There is also a 20 word aural spelling test which lasts around 15 minutes.


Key Stage 2 Maths

Paper 1 is the arithmetic paper which will last for 30 minutes. It will contain fixed response questions where children have to give the correct answers to calculations.

Papers 2 and 3 will involve a wider range of question types including multiple choice, true or false and reasoning based. Both papers will last 40 minutes each.
