I'm a Key Stage 2 teacher, Leader and English lead with experience in all years in that phase. I have a good understanding of the SATs framework and have incorporated this into my resources and plans. In my shop you will find a range of resources suited mainly to Upper Key Stage 2, particularly Year 6 resources as high quality lessons and activities are hard to come by since the changes to the curriculum, as well as hand made KS2 Christmas/End of Year play scripts and Staff pantomime scripts.
