  • Is there a quick and easy way of identifying the objective covered for each of the questions? Thank you

    , Apr 28th
    • Hi there, thanks for getting in touch. To find out the objectives that each question covers, please go to the 'Mark Scheme' and look in the notes next to each question. It will tell you under the 'content domain'. I hope that this helps and if it doesn't then please do get back in touch. Have a lovely day :)

  • Is there any chance you can make the 3 sections available as one whole paper, similar to what you did with the Term 1 test?

  • Is there any chance that a few more columns could be added to the spreadsheet? I have 32 children in my class.

    • Hi MrsSutton12,
      I'll see what we can do for you! Thanks for commenting :)

    • Hi there MrsSutton12,
      If you right click on a column letter above the name cells at the top of the spreadsheet and select 'Insert' you can insert another column for another name, and you can do this as many times as needed!. I hope this helps!

  • Using these resources to support some SEN children in Year 6. Can't seem to find Year 3 Term 3 stuff though - only for other year groups. Is it available?

    • Hi there,

      Our Year 3, Term 3 reading assessment materials aren't currently available but our resource team are busy getting them ready for the site and will be available for download soon. Please keep checking back!

  • I have used the term 1 paper with my year 3's. I allowed them an hour at first but as they have not been used to timed tests, none of them finished. Therefore I allowed them an extra 20 minutes. The results backed up my teacher assessments and was a way of ensuring I am on the right track. The children enjoyed reading the texts too.

  • Thank you! Could you please clarify guidelines for timings for these assessments. Are you envisaging time limits of 60 mins for all 3 papers in total or for each one? Since you have set 3 papers, where there used to be 2, not sure whether this is all left to our discretion. Would appreciate your advice, thank you.

    • Hi there, thanks for your comment! The Standards and Testing Agency state that a total time of 60 minutes will be allowed for completion of the KS2 Reading Assessment in Y6. This includes time for reading and responding to questions. As the Twinkl reading assessments have been based on the KS2 Reading Assessment sample papers, a similar time may be given, but this is up to you. Have a lovely day :)

  • Most of the questions on the fiction paper are to meet an objective about retriving information from fiction. This isn't one of the national curriculum objectives though, only to retrieve facts from non-fiction. Can you explain why these questions are on there?

    , Feb 14th
    • Hi there,

      Thanks for your comment, it's lovely to hear from you! :)

      When producing these tests, our test developers used this document from the Standards and Testing Agency as guidance: https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/448321/2016_KS2_Englishreading_framework_PDFA_V2.pdf

      On page 7 of this document, retrieval of information from fiction texts is given within the content domain, which is why it has also been included within our tests.

      We have also produced this document to support the delivery of our Reading Assessments, which may be useful to you: http://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/t2-e-1796-new-reading-assessment-overview

      I hope this helps! Have a lovely day! :)
