I'm trying to prepare my son for KS2. Could the forum help me to get the following information please?
1. Is reading and SPAG exam externally assessed? Or school assesses the exam papers?
2. Is there any writing exam in KS2?
3. In Maths some children will be doing Level 6 tests. Is it same in English? Including in writing?
4. Where can I get previous KS2 English papers?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the answers.

Did the search couldn't find the 'timetable...'! It could be my lack of ICT.

SATs will provisionally be held in the week beginning 11 May 2015. The likely timetable is as follows:

Date
Monday 11 May Levels 3-5 English reading
Level 6 English reading

Tuesday 12 May Levels 3-5 English grammar, punctuation and spelling
Level 6 English grammar, punctuation and spelling

Wednesday 13 May Levels 3-5 mental mathematics
Levels 3-5 mathematics Paper 1

Thursday 14 May Levels 3-5 mathematics Paper 2
Level 6 mathematics Paper 1

Level 6 mathematics Paper 2 (calculator allowed)

Pupils who are ill on the day of a KS2 SATs test will be able to sit it within a week (until 2012 they were asked to sit the test within two days).



If you google KS2 SAts 2015 you will find loads of information about them

This message may be too late but nonetheless.
We used a lot of free SAT papers available online. Also ordered few rising star books and CGP SAT buster books from Amazon.
The school is giving SAT papers at home everyday for homework so its good practice. Level 6 is not compulsory. Even if your child is capable you can still opt out if you don't want that additional stress on your child.
SPAG level 6 has an extended task which includes creative writing. Please correct me if I am wrong that is not teacher assessed?
