  • Please advise - is there a mistake on question 16 in The Lost Laugh? The mark scheme refers to 'pulling him along' however this is not mentioned or implied in the text.

  • I found this to be far too difficult for the beginning of Year One.

    • Hi helenc17,
      Thank you so much for getting in touch! It's lovely to hear from you :) I'm sorry you found that this resource was too difficult for Year 1. We will get this resource checked to ensure it is pitched appropriately. We'll be back in touch shortly :)

    • Hi there,
      Thanks for getting in touch and I'm sorry to hear that this resource wasn't quite right for your setting. Our lovely resource creation team have worked hard to ensure that this paper accurately reflects the objectives and aims expected of Y1 pupils in the 2014 NC, and have differentiated it from the assessment papers in Terms 2 and 3 with simplified text and keywords.

      We have our lovely Twinkl Create tool available (which you can check out here: ) that you could use to create some custom supportive resources to help your pupils that are struggling with the assessment. I hope this helps!

    • Hi Marie94hall,
      Thanks for letting us know that there are issues downloading this resource. I'm sorry to hear this but would love to help.
      I've taken a look at and it appears to download properly for me here. Our Help Centre should provide a solution but I will also send a copy of the resource through to you. If you're still having trouble, let me know and I'll have another look at this right away!
      Have a lovely day! :)

  • 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! :)
