It’s SATs time! See in the event you can reply these questions for 10 yr olds

Youngsters are settling down to take their SATs tests in primary schools this week – but how well do you think you’d do in them?

The Standard Assessment Tests, aimed at kids as young as six, check how well they’re doing in English and Maths. All pupils in Year 6 in England will do SATS, and at some schools students in Year 2. Since their launch in 1991, the exams have attracted a fair share of controversy, with both parents and teachers calling for them to be axed, saying they make schools into ‘exam factories’ and turn children against education.

But the government insists the ‘tests are in pupils’ own interests’, helping both parents and teachers identify where additional support is needed to ‘make sure all children leave primary school having mastered the basics of literacy and numeracy’.

In English, youngsters are quizzed on spelling, punctuation and grammar, while in maths, they are tested on arithmetic and reasoning. Below, we’ve put together a series of English and Maths questions aimed at Year 6 children. These were some of the questions included in last year’s Key Stage 2 tests.
