Priors Wood Primary School KS2 SATS 2017 Y6 Information Evening Monday 17th October 2016 Key Stage 2 SATS The new curriculum was introduced in 2014. It is more rigorous and sets higher expectations which

all schools are working hard to meet. The new national curriculum was assessed for the first time in May 2016. This years key stage 2 tests are timetabled from Monday 8 May to Thursday 11 May 2017. There is no science sampling for the 2016 to 2017 academic year. Monday 8 May 2017 English reading

Tuesday 9 May 2017 English grammar, punctuation and spelling Paper 1: questions English grammar, punctuation and spelling Paper 2: spelling Wednesday 10 May 2017 Mathematics Paper 1-arithmetic Mathematics Paper 2: reasoning Thursday 11 May 2017 Mathematics Paper 3: reasoning

Explaining the Changes A new set of tests were introduced in May 2016 to replace the existing ones. There are no additional tests: all pupils will take just one set of tests. The tests will include a small number of questions to stretch the most able pupils. Explaining the Changes Scaled Scores All test outcomes at both KS1 and KS2 will be

reported as scaled scores. The national standard will be 100. Raw scores (the number of marks awarded for each subject) will be translated to scaled scores (a comparable score for each subject) using a conversion table. Pupils will receive a raw score, a scaled score and confirmation of attainment of the national standard. There is no correlation between previous levels and this method of reporting using a national standard.

The English Tests There is a greater focus on fictional texts. The structure of the test is similar to the previous KS2 reading tests. There is a greater emphasis on the comprehension elements of the new curriculum. Reading - 50 marks Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling Test 50 marks - Spelling test 20 words

A Teacher Assessment of writing ability will be made in May/ June 2017. Reading Test The Reading Test For this test there will be one reading book and one answer booklet. The test will last for one hour (including reading time). There will be a total of 50 marks available. There will be a range of texts which may include fiction, non

fiction and poetry. Marks will be awarded as follows: Multiple choice or other selected responses: 10% - 30% Short responses: 40% - 60% Extended responses: 20% - 40% Reading Some questions

will test the children on their understandin g of vocabulary. (Every child has a new vocabulary bookplease

encourage them to use it.) Others will require the children to deduce answers by using words or phrases as evidence. (I sent home a list of SATS based questions at the beginning of term.) Some questions will ask the children to find literal

answers from the texts. Grammar and Punctuation Changes to the Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling Test: There is a greater focus on knowing and applying grammatical terminology with the full range of punctuation tested. Technical terms in grammar will be tested. There will be one test paper for grammar, punctuation and

vocabulary and one test paper for spelling. The design of the tests is unchanged. The grammar test will last for one hour and there will be a total of 50 marks available. In the grammar test, two thirds of the marks will be for multiple choice questions. The remaining questions will require pupils to write a longer answer. Spelling There are 20 spelling

sentences. The spelling words are tested within the context of a sentence. As the sentences are read out to the children, they fill in the correct spellings on their copy of

the text. Writing Teacher assessment from cross-curricular writing samples taken through the year. National ITAF used to make final judgement. Moderators visit school in May/June 2017 to check these assessments. Must be able to spell the Year 3 and 4 word list. Must be able to spell most of the Year 5 and 6

written arithmetic test has been introduced to assess fluency with numbers and basic mathematical calculations, with a focus on working efficiently at speed. Questions in the arithmetic test will cover: ability to work fluently with numbers straightforward addition and subtraction more complex calculations with fractions long division and long multiplication

Maths Tests Arithmetic Test There will be 36 questions in the arithmetic test and there will be 40 marks available most of which will be worth one mark. The test will last 30 minutes.

A question taken from Paper 3 - Reasoning How to help your child Ensure your child has the best possible attendance through the year. Encourage them to speak to me about any difficulties with class work or homework. It is essential to keep reading regularly and to have opportunities to answer questions about reading.

Keep up the times table practise, so they don`t become rusty. Support the children with learning the Year 3,4,5,6 spellings. They will not be at age expectation in writing if they cannot spell these. Revision Books 10 minute tests will be available to buy in January. Please avoid using actual SATS tests for practise!
