Year 6 SATS are changing to include arithmetic and reasoning papers.
* Yes, really. Coming to a school near you, very soon.
It seems never ending, although like a lot of ‘educational initiatives,’ it’ll settle down sooner or later. In the meantime I thought I’d throw my hat into the ring, although in true 3minutemaths tradition, I couldn’t create anything other than a quick test.
The idea is to offer a paper that can be completed in around 10 minutes (possibly 3?) that is fairly representative of the kind of questions a year 6 might be faced with. Having trialled it with around 10 students, most achieved good marks, with only a couple of blank faces.
I’m sure in a few years, they’ll be a whole bundle of these types of tests available, and they’ll be much better presented than mine. Although I did get here first. ish.
Here’s the papers and hope they help.
Here’s the text books. They’ll also help 🙂
