Why is year 2 important
Why is year 2 important?

  • Year 2 marks the end of Key Stage 1 and therefore it is essential that your children within this year become prepared for KS2.

  • For this reason the levels your child achieves at the end of key stage 1 are very important.

Key stage 1 assessments
Key Stage 1 assessments

  • We will look at levels in writing

  • Phonics screening test in year 1

  • SATsquestions that the children need to be able to answer.

  • The overall level given to your child at the end of year 2 will depend on teacher assessment.

  • There will also be SATS tests in May – however the final result depends on what the child has shown the teacher throughout the year.


  • Looking at writing

  • There are examples of L3, L2A, L2B, L2C and L1A writing.

  • The children complete a short (25 minutes) and long (45 minutes) writing task

  • We look at punctuation, how they describe and explain, spelling, handwriting is also judged.


  • Maths questions, as the paper progresses it becomes more challenging.

  • There are differentiated papers and the children will sit which paper best suits their ability

  • During the test the children can have resources to help them and teachers can read the questions


  • There are L2 and L3 comprehension papers for you to look through.

  • We will be giving out regular practise questions this term to get the children prepared for May.

  • Some children will read individually to their teacher

  • The teacher will decide which test is most suited to your child

Try not to worry
Try not to worry!

  • Firstly, don’t worry!

  • In our experience the vast majority of children are unaware that the SATs tasks and tests are even taking place.

  • They are always done in familiar surroundings, with familiar people (more often than not the class teacher) and in small groups.

  • If the child doesn’t make the expected levels, they don’t have to re sit the tests.
