Year 2 reading assessment without levels

Use this resource to assess reading under the Curriculum 2014. I have placed the same test with the old QCA mark scheme on here also, if you still need to use the old system. This identifies whether the children are working at where they should be or above.

Grammar and Punctuation Questions similar to the 2016 Sample Test Paper

Grammar and punctuation questions questions designed to look the same as those in the official 2016 sample paper.
The look, difficulty and style of the questions are as close to the sample paper as I could manage.
Personally I have been giving these to my Year 2 children as a lesson starter, two questions a day, then going through them with the class as soon as they have handed them in. Hopefully to prepare them for the actual test and also to use as extra evidence to assist in my teacher assessment.
There is a video on YouTube aimed at children, that walks through these questions and how to answer them. The video can be found by a QR code on the sheets and the URL is on the last page (so it does not appear on the question sheets you may wish to use in class). We have found that putting the file and link to the video on our school website has been appreciated by our parents.
I am creating extra sets of questions each week so keep checking for the next set.

KS1 SATS 2016 Arithmetic Sample B PowerPoint - Whole class SATS revision

This PowerPoint is designed to accompany our 'Arithmetic Sample B Paper' and can be used as a whole class or peer marking tool. It can also be used as a teaching tool for small groups of children or a whole class to familiarise children with the test.

Each slide shows each test question in turn with a clue at the top - providing the teacher or tutor with somewhere to write to demonstrate to the children how the test question can be tackled.

You could also use this PowerPoint as a plenary tool, whereby children complete a question every day or as a peer marking tool whereby children come out to the whiteboard and show their peers how they have tackled the question.

Whilst this resource is free to use, the test paper accompanying this PowerPoint can be purchased from our premium resources for just £1!

Thanks and your feedback is always welcome. Any problems or questions, please contact office@tutortastic.co.uk.

KS2 SATS resources also available in a similar format.

KS1 2017 SATs Maths Gap Analysis Grid (including tests and conversion tables) - SATs Prep

These are excel spreadsheets Gap Analysis documents for the 2017 Year Two SATs Papers for Maths .

The sheet totals up the scores automatically and each child’s final score changes colour to reflect their ability.

If their total score for a subject goes green, it means they would have passed the 2017 SATs with that score. If it goes Green with a yellow font, it means that child would have achieved a ‘More Able’ score for that tested subject.

I have also included an instructions and document page, linking to a freely available copy of each test, mark scheme and instructions. Additionally, I have included a link to the conversion tables from RAW Score to Scaled Score.

All a teacher has to do is enter their children’s names and enter the 0’s, 1’s, 2’s or 3’s for each question, which also change colour too for a visual reference. I recommend that a teacher should enter ‘N’ if a child did not attempt that question. This gives an idea of who is not even attempting certain questions, not just whether they got the question wrong.

The sheets are set up for 32 pupils but more can be added/deleted and instructions are on the first page/sheet. Some cells are locked/protected in this document but the parts that you need to insert yourself are editable. This is so that the formulas/algorithms do not break and render the spreadsheet’s functionalities as broken.

I take requests for Gap Analysis Grids. Please leave feedback if you like this resource as I am planning to produce more for each SATs paper going forward, as well as CGP Practice Papers.

Please remember to rate this resource as I made this to save teachers time. Thank-you.
