Prepare with confidence for the new format Key Stage 1 SATs testswith
Scholastic National Curriculum Tests.

The national tests are changing in 2016, and Scholastic's new practice
tests are fully in line with the new format Grammar, Punctuation
and Spelling SATs tests for children in Year 2. Each pack comes
with three complete practice tests with an accompanying Guidance
and Mark Scheme booklet.

These practice tests have a similar look and feel to the new Grammar,
Punctuation and Spelling test, to help familiarise children
with both the content and format of these tests. The tests can be
used to track progress in school, but can also be used in the home.
The Guidance and Mark Scheme provides advice for parents and
carers on how to use the tests and how to support children in preparing
for them.

Scholastic National Curriculum Revision: Year 2 is also available,
offering children the opportunity to check their progress
across the English curriculum and to develop the skills they need
for these national tests.

I'm such a geek.. Loved opening these, feeling them & looking at them as a parent.
Got these for my niece who is nearly 6 so that she can practice - I'm sure she will love doing them with her mum

Grammar, Punctuation & Spelling Tests is a great pack of practice papers to help your child to get familiar with tests at school. It was really useful for me as the parent to see what they actually should know by the end of Year 2. I had a chance to explain some points that were not so clear to my daughter. She really enjoyed to fill the answers to the questions and now she feels more confident with her writing. I found it really useful and I've already recommended it to my friends.

Wonderful practice papers for my 6 year old. He is due to take his year 2 SATs next year so this is just perfect for him to practice with. We have sat and looked through together and already found a few questions we can answer confidently. Would recommend these on the tun up to tests.

I found this pack really interesting. It has three different practice papers and a 'Guidance and Mark Scheme' booklet. My son and I looked through them together and it is great for him to see exam papers similar to those he'll have to take soon. It's nice to be able to discuss the different sections and also try out a few questions with him. A really handy leaning tool which may help make exams a lot less daunting for little ones.

I as really excited for this book to arrive. Scarlett is die to sit her SATS next year so I'm keen to get some kind of light revision going on at home.
I was surprised to find it came in 'exam format' so in actual 'papers'.  liked this idea as it gives them a sense of how an exam works from an early age. I did, later on find it quite hard to navigate around the papers and pair them up with the question and marking papers. It could have been a better linking system for this I thought.
I found that the papers were at different levels of difficulty. Some papers Scarlett (6 years old) was able to understand and worked through easily. Others, some of the papers on nouns and adverbs and adjectives Scarlett hasn't done at school yet so understandably didn't know about (and I'm afraid to say, neither did mummy!).
Scarlett was really keen to work through them, and although it has taken us a while we have now completed all the sections she is familiar with. Scarlett works well with praise and the points marking system worked well as she had something to gauge her ability on.
We will be keeping the harder levels back for next year when she moves up to year 2 and use them then. All in all a great idea from Scolastic and a great way to get children used to the exam conditions.

We got this around the time my son was going to be starting his SATs, so it was good practise for my son. My son got on with the tests no problem. It was good that there was  3 different ones. My son had  done some other grammar, punctuation andy ra mamas practise tests, and I found these quite basic and very easy compared to others my son had done. I liked that along with the answers, it came with a guidance section for the parent and the child.

I was interested in this as I have a year R child at the moment and it's a good way to prepare for the future and know what to expect in a couple of years.  I thought the papers gave a real insight into what a SATs test will be like and it will definitely help us to know what extra help we may need to give our boy at home.   It would have been useful to have a mini glossary of terms (to help jog the grammatical memory) but otherwise I can see that this will be a really useful tool

My son's school are quite proactive in ensuring the children have plenty of practice on example SAT papers in their class, and they send papers home as optional homework - if the children feel they want to do them - although it is not compulsory to do this homework. I had also downloaded the free example SAT papers from the government website for my son to practice on.
Therefore, if I hadn't received these papers as a giveaway - I don't think that I would have necessarily have purchased them - due to the free resources available online and through the school.
Also, having had quite a lot of practice, my son was initially a little resistant about doing these papers at home as it was a little bit of overload for him.
That being said, I think these papers would actually be very useful for Year 1 students - who could use it as a guide to experience the tests that they will meet in a years time. As many reviewers have already said - it is also a very useful resource for parents, as they demonstrate what children will need to grasp in the year approaching their SATS. It is also very useful for parents to see the marking scheme so that they can understand how their child will be assessed.

As a teacher I found these papers quite basic, but as a parent it's more of an overview that helps you to understand what the tests will be like for your child. I would have liked a section that explains terms eg what is the difference between a statement and an exclamation. It's not bad if you want your child to have a go.
