Practise Comprehension Papers (At The Stroke Of Midnight) Between the ages of 9 and 12, children following the UK curriculum have to complete Standardised.Assessment.Tests (Sats).

Read one text and answer the questions about that text, before moving onto the next text. There are three texts and three sets of questions in each booklet. The tests in this booklet are based on the KS2 Reading Assessment sample papers. It is important to try and complete them in an hour, but it is your choice. The more tests you practise the quicker you will get. 43 pages Watch the video below, for a sneak peek at this fantastic series... https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=FcO_h_xvwb8 Find out more about Guinea Pig Education, in the video below... https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=BRsqpWV4nTo

There are work packs available for every age and year group. Age ranges are based on the ability of the average child in a year group. If your child is working at a higher or lower ability, in comparison to their age, you may need to go up or down a scheme. Simply, print each activity out on paper, using your home printer and your child can immediately start working. Our packs are very good value - they are heavily discounted and jam packed with work.
