  • Super resource - if being used as a summative tool, what would be the reccommended results for below, age related and working at greater depth?

  • Ideal for my Year 6 working at a Year 1 level, my only sugestion for an improvement is the ability to print it without the ks1/yr1 branding. I have just tipexed it out, which is no problem, it just would be handy to be able to do it on all of your lovely assessment papers. Thanks.

    • Hi runewebb,
      Thanks for commenting! I can see this being a useful addition - I'll ask our design team to make the amendment!

  • Do I read the text to them, or do they read it themselves?

    • Good morning werdaspoelstra,
      Thank you very much for commenting! It's great to hear from you :) It depends really. If you have some high ability year 1 readers they may be able to read it themselves :) Have a lovely weekend :)

  • Hello, I would love to use this resource. However, some of the wording appears tricky for Year 1 children and the Year 2 paper seems easier. Could you please confirm what support you are supposed to give during the administration of the test? For example, do the children have to read the texts and the questions independently or are we expected to read some of it with them? Thank you very much.

    • Hi jomisson,
      Thank you for commenting! The amount of support you give to the pupils is entirely up to you - it depends how much you wish to simulate 'test conditions'. Our assessment tests are designed for identifying learning gaps and can be used as a diagnostic or summative assessment tool. I hope this helps! :)
