  • This assessment is ridiculously hard. In my opinion, it far exceeds the expected standard for Year 5. I was interested to read previous comments which found paper 3 being used in the past as a GCSE paper. 
    I know the level has stepped up massively with the three texts within an hour expected for year 6, but this is very difficult indeed.

    • Hi DogDays,

    • Hi there,
      Our lovely KS2 English team have looked at this pack extensively over the past year and made lots of updates - the paper that previously had some GCSE level elements has been removed and replaced with more appropriate material.

      There is definitely a step-up in difficulty from the earlier Y5 terms, but this is an intentional progression. You can find our Y5 Term 1 assessment here: http://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/t2-e-1635-year-5-reading-assessment

      I hope it is more useful!

  • Can you include timings on your tests? none of them state how long children have to do them!

    • Hi jonbrook,
      Thank you so much for getting in touch! It's lovely to hear from you :) We do not include timings as these booklets are for teachers to use as they see fit to prepare or assess their children. If you are using these as part of SATs preparation, then 20 minutes per test (1 hour for 3 papers) is what is allowed, however some children may need more time than this. I hope this helps :)

    • Hello again jonbrook!
      I'd recommend having a look at our Reading Assessment Overview for KS2 - it provides lots of advice about using the assessment including timings:

      Enjoy the rest of your day! :)

  • Following using this with year 5, I couldn't agree more that the questions are incredibly difficult (especially in the poem). But the writing boxes are no where near appropriate for the answers. Qu 10 of the fiction requires 2 quotes, or 5 sentences, to be copied for full marks, one being 5 lines and the other 10 in computer font, and the children have 3 lines to answer!

  • Can I just double check that this is for Y5? It seems a huge step up from the Term 2 assessments that you've created and I think many Y6/7's would potentially struggle with it at this stage. It might just be me but I thought I'd check as it appears to be set at a very hard level. Thanks

    • Hi there,
      Our lovely KS2 English team have looked into this for you and we believe the tests in this pack are pitched correctly for Y5 students. There is definitely a step-up in difficulty from the earlier Y5 terms but this is an intentional progression. I hope this helps!

  • When you open the spreadsheet, it says Year 3 on the tab along the bottom so this needs to be corrected. Can you also make sure that the questions etc match the Year 5 and not Year 3 please?

  • These are very useful but is it possible to create separate pages on the excel spread sheet so that the 3 sections of the paper can be analysed independently of one another?

    • Hello....is this resource now available to all? I'd love to have a tool to analyse them separately! Thanks

      , Mar 3rd
    • Good morning MrsEdmonds1,
      Our design team have made separate pages on the Excel spread sheet so that the three sections of the paper can be analysed separately of one another. If you click the pink download button then open up the spreadsheet at the button you should be able to find it :) Please let me know if there is anything else we can help you with.

  • Using this as Year 5 practise following on from last weeks disastrous reading test! Turns out they need all the practise they can get now the texts are so difficult throughout!!!
    Thanks for preparing for us!!

  • I thought the poem and questions were difficult for my Y5 and so I looked the poem up with reference to education. I found that it has been used as a GCSE preparation text in the past! No wonder it was hard! Maybe something a little more age appropriate would be better!

  • Am I going mad? Where are the question booklets??

    , May 16th
    • Hi there,

      Thanks for your comment!

      I've taken a look at this resource and the files which contain the questions and space to write the answers are the 'Answer booklet' files contained within this download.

      I hope this helps - have a lovely day! :)
