Hundreds of local students are sitting the tests this week

Hundreds of Year Six students in the area are this week sitting Key Stage Two tests.

Last year they 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.

Have a go at the seven questions taken from last year’s exam papers.
