We have been sent questions, given to year 2 children from supporters of our campaign. We wanted to republish these here to give those who are not currently parents of Year 2 children an idea of the jump in difficulty 6 and 7 year olds in England are having to try and cope with this year in the lead up to being tested in exam conditions soon.
These tests are not the same as they were last year!
As someone supporting our campaign to keep kids off school on 3rd May said “It’s a bit like teaching a ten year old to drive a car… they just aren’t ready for this yet!”
EDIT: There is also the following site with some examples of Year 2 2016 sample SATS papers and questions: http://www.satspapers.org.uk/Page.aspx?TId=4 with “Paper 2 Reasoning” coming in at 28 pages for 6 and 7 year olds!!!!!
