Year 2 SATs Information and Links
The following information is intended to answer any questions you may have on the Year 2 SATs for 2019, as well as to provide useful links to previous SAT papers.
What are SATs?
SATs are national tests that children take twice during their primary school life. Firstly, at the end of Key Stage 1 (KS1) in Year 2, and then secondly, at the end of Key Stage 2 (KS2) in Year 6. These standardised tests are actually known as End of Key Stage Tests and Assessments, but most people know them as SATs.
How does this link to our Year 2 class?
Firstly, children will participate in these tests (though I use the word ‘quiz’) in a stress free environment. Children have already worked through reading and writing papers in preparation and are beginning to get a feel for questions and how to answer them (Please view homework folders/books) for numeracy strategies. So far, the children have had a go at Mathematics (Arithmetic and reasoning) and Reading booklets x 2 papers which focuses on comprehension, language and inference. Year 2 will be doing SATs in school for two weeks week commencing Monday the 13th May until the end of term.
Children will do the following:
- Creative Writing assessment – based on writing in class – The Amazing Pebble Story
- Mathematics assessment – arithmetic question booklet (25 questions) and a reasoning question booklet (31 questions)
- Reading – question booklet paper 1 and question booklet paper 2
If you have any questions at all, please feel free to catch me at the end of the school day.
