Each child is teacher assessed in Reading, writing (including spelling and handwriting), maths (including number, shape, space and measurement) and science.
Your child’s class teacher will set short pieces of work in English and maths to judge what level of ability your child is considered to be.
KEY STAGE 2
SATs take place 13th to 16th May 2138 and are far more formal than Key Stage 1, hence they seem much more stressful!
