    There is no science sampling for the 2017 to 2018 academic year. ( A small selection of school will

    complete the assessment to assess teaching across the country)

    Writing is teacher assessed in June. Moderation with other schools and county moderation will be

    completed during June.

  • Spelling Punctuation and Grammar

  • English: Grammar, Punctuation and


    Part 1 (Punctuation & Grammar Questions) is a notably hard test that contains a series of questions on SPaG topics including:

    Nouns, verbs, pronouns, adjectives, adverbs, determiners, conjunctions, clauses etc.

    Subjunctive verbs, passive and active voices, subordinate clauses etc.

    (The use of) capital letters, commas, inverted commas, apostrophes, colons, semi-colons, hyphens etc.

    Suffixes, homophones, synonyms and antonyms.

    Part 2 (Spelling Test) is unchanged from previous years. Your childs teacher will read 20 sentences from a script with an emphasis on a word that needs to be spelt. Within your childs answer booklet is the same sentence but with a blank space left for them to correctly spell the word.

  • English Reading

    The 2018 KS2 English Reading SATs paper will be presented in two booklets.

    One booklet is the Reading Booklet that contains three separate (unrelated)

    reading texts. The second booklet is the Reading Answer Booklet which contains

    the questions. The questions are ordered in the same sequence as the texts.

    As with previous years, the questions will broadly assess a childs ability to fully

    understand the structure, purpose and meaning of a passage of text. The

    questions will test a variety of reading comprehension skills including:

    Fact retrieval e.g. Name the four types of building detailed within the piece.

    Structure and presentation e.g. Why do you think the author choose to present

    a table alongside the text?

    Inference e.g. Why do you think the author has used the word frozen to

    describe the character?

    Open-ended questions e.g. Explain how and why the author has chosen to end

    the story. Use two examples from the text.

  • Maths

  • Maths Paper 1, known as the Arithmetic paper, contains 40 marks worth of calculation-based

    questions. For this paper its essential that your child is comfortable and competant with the following topics:

    Fractions (including mixed numbers).

    Decimals (including converting fractions into decimals).

    Percentages (and how they relate to fractions).

    Square numbers.


    Applying Addition, subtraction, multiplication (long and short) and division (long and short) to ALL of the above. This includes how to apply these operations in order when required (i.e. BODMAS).

    Paper 2 and Paper 3 are now known as the Reasoning papers and each contain 35 marks worth of more problem-solving based Maths. Children will need to apply their KS2 Maths skills (as used in Paper 1) to a variety of topics including:

    Geometry (including coordinates, rotation, reflection, symmetry etc).

    Ratios (and how to interpret them from fractions, percentages etc).

    Charts and tables.

    Units and measures (including time, temperature, money, weight, volume etc).

    Shapes and their properties (including triangles, hexagons and their angles).

    Roman numerals.

  • How are the results presented and reported?

    SATs Results:

    Children will receive a raw score for each test (their total number of

    correct responses).

    The raw score will be converted into a scaled score.

    The scaled score of 100 or above will show that your child is working at the

    expected national standard.

    The raw score required to achieve a scaled score of 100 will not be set until

    after the SATs tests have been completed.

  • How are the results presented and reported? Mark Interpretation

    < 100 Below Expected


    100 At Expected


    > 100 Above Expected


    99 100 scale score is the

    difference of around 5 marks.

    What is meant by scaled scores?

    It is planned that 100 will always represent the national standard.

    Each pupils raw test score will therefore be converted into a score on the scale, either at, above or below 100.

    The scale will have a lower end point somewhere below 100 and an upper end point above 100.

    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 Assessment:

    Reading, Maths, Writing: Working Towards the expected standard or

    Working at the expected standard or Working at greater depth within the

    expected standard.

    Children will be assessed against a collection of performance descriptors

    for each subject. These will be continually assessed in class work until the

    end of June.

    The judgements are no longer a best-fit model. Instead, children must be

    achieving all objectives within a band in order to achieve it.

  • Common Mistakes

    Rushing to start & rushing to finish.

    Not reading questions carefully: 30% of children last year made an error in

    reading and maths tests due to misreading a question (tick 2, draw one line


    Forgetting to show workings (in Maths).

    Time management

    Knowing how much to write

    Spending too long on one question

  • How can you help?

    Timed homework/revision sessions

    Check understanding before/after (review/editing time is important)

    Encourage them to underline key words/instructions

    Dont let them rub things out; they should be able to talk through their

    process and explain their mistakes

    Encourage them to give opinions with multiple reasons

    School was rubbish today because ...

  • How can you help?

    Build confidence and practise weaker areas (e.g. written methods of

    calculation, times tables, skim reading, fact finding etc)

    Real-life maths skills:

    Time what time is it? How long until? How long since?

    Money how much? How much more? How much change?

    Fractions and Number = 80%

    Explaining articulately something theyve learnt in school.

  • How can you help?

    Daily reading and discussion about texts is essential

    Focus discussion on language and vocabulary choices by the author I wonder

    why the author has used that word? What does that make you think of? Is

    that similar to anything else etc

    Grammatically correct speech correction

    Spellings and Handwriting are of a much higher priority in order to achieve

    the expected standard in Writing. Spellings encourage different strategies to

    help learn them.

    Basic punctuation is essential in order to be working towards in writing.

    Simple mistakes should be identified and corrected in all written tasks to

    ensure attention to detail and accuracy.
