Hundreds of Year Six students in Suffolk and Essex are this week sitting Key Stage Two tests, but can you correctly answer a sample of last year’s questions?
It’s the week all children aged 10 and 11 are dreading - SATs week.
Schools across North Devon and Torridge have been sitting their SATs exams with new, toughened-up required benchmark in reading, writing and mathematics.
Children were asked to identify subordinate clauses, antonyms and sentences in the present perfect tense, as well as modal verbs and split digraphs.
This is the second year of the new demanding assessments in maths and English beind held at the end of primary school.

Critics say the new tests are too narrow at the expense of other subjects and believe schools are now becoming ‘exam factories’.
Others believe children are not overly-tested and should be assessed to ensure they know the fundamentals of English and maths before starting secondary school.
