KS2 SATs Practice Papers - Pack 1


KS2 SATs Practice Papers - Pack 1

Pack 1 of our KS2 SATs Practice Papers are here and they contain three full sets of KS2 SATs tests!.

  • 3x FULL sets of KS2 Maths Papers - Paper 1 (Arithmetic), Paper 2 (Reasoning) & Paper 3 (Reasoning).
  • 3x FULL sets of KS2 English Reading Papers.
  • 3x FULL sets of KS2 SPaG Papers (Punctuation/Grammar Task & Spelling Task).
  • SEPARATE "exam style" booklets for each test.
  • FULL Answers covering every single question.
  • Professionally produced audio files (for the Spelling tests).

These papers have been crafted to really push and prepare children. They're tough, really tough, and if children can conquer these papers then they're certainly ready for the real ones in May!

We really listened to our customer's feedback in 2016 and so we've printed these papers to individual booklets rather than a large book. Every booklet is in full colour (on superb quality paper) and they're delivered to you shrink-wrapped into one package. No more sneaky peeks in the back for the answers!

However, not happy with simply putting together the perfect collection of KS2 practice papers, we wanted to make them even more special. So we produced the audio for the Spelling tests! They're all correctly timed and professionally spoken by a former BBC World Service vocalist.

Nobody else offers such a comprehensive set of KS2 Practice Papers and no other set of practice papers will prepare your child as well as Exam Ninja's can.

3x KS2 Maths Practice Paper Sets

Carrying on from what was first introduced in 2016, children will have to face three separate KS2 Maths assessments. These are: Paper 1 (Arithmetic), Paper 2 (Reasoning) and Paper 3 (Reasoning). Interested to see what they look like? Why not look at the Sample KS2 Maths Practice Papers PDF.

Paper 1 contains around 35 tricky mental maths questions that include long-multiplication, fractions, decimals and percentages. It's not simple and it's easy to make a mistake. Paper 2 and Paper 3 contain questions devoted to mathematical reasoning and include many more topics like algebra, geometry and even Roman numerals. Preparation is vital.

Within this book are three full sets of tricky KS2 Maths papers. That's 3x Paper 1, 3x Paper 2 and 3x Paper 3 with no repetition or duplication. With this in their arsenal, they can't be any more prepared.

3x KS2 Reading Practice Paper Sets

As with the 2015 and 2016 tests, children no longer have a dedicated 15 minute reading period at the start of the test and nor are the texts all linked by a common theme. The texts and questions get progressively longer and harder as they work through them.

Within the pack are three full sets of extra tough KS2 Reading practice papers. As with the Maths papers, they really stretch children's abilities.

With this in their arsenal, they can't be any more prepared. If you're interested to see what they look like. why not download the Sample KS2 English Practice Papers PDF.

3x KS2 SPaG Practice Paper Sets

SPaG's got harder, a LOT harder and for this May it will be very challenging! The KS2 SPaG tests will assess children on the same topics and these Exam Ninja practice papers are the most authentic simulation available, including both the incredibly tricky Paper 1 : Questions as well as Paper 2 : Spelling.

Plenty of parents can explain what a noun is and how it's different to an adjective, that's quite straightforward. The trouble comes when you're trying to explain prepositions, clauses or noun phrases. It doesn't even stop there! The KS2 SPaG Papers will even delve into scary things like subordinating conjunctions!

Like we said, they're hard...really, really hard! If you're interested to see what they look like. why not download the Sample KS2 English Practice Papers PDF.

To give our customers' children an enviable advantage in the national tests, we've bundled in the audio for all three Spelling Tasks. The instructions are read and the questions asked - it doesn't get any more realistic.

They cannot be any more prepared.

As well as these enormously valuable Maths and English practice papers, we also include all the answers. These are presented as a formal marking scheme (just like the real tests) so your child can potentally score "method marks" if they don't answer a question correctly.

Make no mistake, these papers are not like those available from other publishers. We worked exceptionally hard to make them more challenging, more intricate and a superior preparation tool. They're exactly what children need for May.

* Please note that this book (or pack of books) is fully updated to the new curriculum that began in 2014 (for Years 1-5 and 7-9) and 2015 for Year 6.

Great service and received in 48 hours. Very challenging and great prep for SATS



Excellent content and presentation. My daughter was actually excited opening the package and said the English reading material was really interesting. It worked well having the papers and answers individually bound.

Julie C Bodiam(17/04/2017)


Fastest delivery I have encountered. Next day, means next day with this company.
Forward thinking products for preparation towards SATS Y6.
Gives confidence to pupils with level competence and helps them progress and be ready for the tests.



Very good - I ordered this for my son who is in year 5 as practice. So far so good :) many thanks

Tracie beech (11/04/2017)


We have started home schooling and have tried all the referalls from people but to be honest exam ninja help my daughter that has a fratual skull and struggles with understanding things but everything is explained clearly and easy to understand she was 1 yr behind with her work so the school reports say but we have just been assess by the education board and passed with flying colours we have only been doing it since January 2017 I the education board was so impressed with how quickly she has come that there now putting it on there list to recommend to other parents



Excellent revision resource but would have preferred them to be in separate sets. Thank you



Thank you for delivering my exam papers, so quickly and efficiently whilst being able to track them too ❤ excellent service, and content really impressed.



Excellent service - really useful material



Thank you arrived very next day after ordering fantastic quality.

Pat Slinger(06/03/2017)


Very useful, makes lesson planning easy.

Margaret Bell(09/02/2017)


I am very happy with the papers I received. They arrived within 48 hours and were well packaged.
The papers are an excellent resource and highlight weak areas in both English and Maths which I can target as a tutor.
I will be purchasing similar papers for other year groups.

Jim Kendall(08/02/2017)


Excellent all round. Quick delivery and a high quality product. My 11-year old daughter has started working her way through these practice papers and we are finding the ability to identify weak areas in her knowledge very useful. With 3 full sets of papers included these packs represent excellent value for money - highly recommended.



Used these a couple of years back and they are great. Good that they have gone back yo the individual booklet styles which is so much better.

Richard R(11/05/2016)


Just what I wanted. Quick delivery.



Really great service. My order came the very next day and I was kept informed of progress. The product itself was brilliant and there were even little extras in there such as revision cards which have been great. Also a timetable of what exams are when. Thank you so much. You have exceeded all of my expectations.

Kitty White(09/05/2016)


Great service and tracking
Wonderful packaging and book in excellent condition, unwrapping the book was a nice touch and you could see the service had gone that extra mile.
The book is a great resource, plus PDFs download and Audio files - great value.
Thank you



Fantastic resource really enjoyed using these papers. Audio spelling test excellent.
Like a previous reviewer my daughters school is behind with the current curriculum but this resource and others I have purchased from Exam Ninja have enabled me to cover these areas at home.
Many thanks



Great turnaround for delivery and customer service, Books were great



The book is really good for new and existing curriculum 2016 KS2 exam. Practice tests are excellent.



Very Comprehensive and Helpful.



Book is excellent! It has impressed my colleagues in having seen the new type paper and we love the way they are more robust.



This book covered a good range for a Year 6 pupil. The answers should be in a different booklet to avoid pupils referring to them during work.



This book is lovely. On the one hand, it is very handy to have everything in one book, and may indeed inspire my son to be neat as he is actually writing in a real book! On the other hand, I think I would have preferred the papers to be in separate packs and as actual papers, so the child gets a feel for actually handling the exam paper and being careful not to miss out pages (which has actually happened in other practice tests). I had wanted to copy these papers for my friend's daughter, so she could get some practice too, but it will be tricky because of the book format. Excellent value for three full sets of practice papers. Thank you Exam Ninja!



Excellent product, really like the fact all the questions are in one book but agree it would be better if the answer booklet was separate. It arrived promptly and has helped my son gain confidence.



I am tutoring five Year 6 pupils and this book is going to equip them well for their KS2 SATS starting 9 May.

ekta jani(21/03/2016)


Very quick delivery and nice description. On some points I am a little confused so if they tried to explain how they came to a particular answer it would be more helpful.

Diana Gibbs(17/03/2016)


Very useful, just what I needed. Good delivery. Thank you



Packaging and delivery was good and prompt.
I find it useful to use for intervention groups in school.
I have noticed there aren't any 3 mark questions in the reading paper, but not sure whether this is a new alteration to the SATs.
The test papers have a very similar style to the new SATs papers which provides excellent practice for pupils.
It is slightly awkward to photocopy due to the thickness of the book.
I would recommend this book for year 6 pupils.



Excellent, really fast delivery and great books. Has helped my son get to grips with the 2016 SATS. Really impressed.



Very pleased with this learning resource, I have a Y6 daughter and a Y5 son, both have enjoyed doing these practice papers. Thanks Exam Ninja.



Excellent practice material but would be much easier to use if it was in separate sections

P. Rainey(23/02/2016)


Got this for my daughter. It was dispatched very quickly. She has started working through some of the tests. The tests are based on the new 2016 format. Good quality and the questions are challenging. Very good set of practice papers.

Mrs P(23/02/2016)


Very good book. You get a lot for your money and it challenges the child.

Debbie Bloom(22/02/2016)


Very useful resource although I wish it was in a more appropriate folder to enable easier divide - I don't find it easy to photocopy and its a huge book to lug around.

Louise Leadbeater(22/02/2016)


Very quickly dispatched upon order and arrived promptly and very well packaged. Lovely book and guide card with link to internet for audio spellings.
Very pleased so far (have recommended to friends) - many thanks.

Imran (22/02/2016)


As Usual another FANTASTIC set of SATS papers in-line with the NEW 2016 Specification.
Quality of book/ Questions/ correspondance/ packaging all 100%. I have been buying from Exam Ninja now for some time. Best company on the internet. ImranIqbal121tutor

A P(14/02/2016)


5 out of 5 very good quality its the best you can get.☺



Very quick delivery. Have looked through them but as they are a resource I have not used them yet, although have adapted ideas, so that the children are used to the format.



Delivered very quickly. Would have preferred the book to be ring bound so it last longer. Tests are clearly set out and and challenging.



The resource is great and the service excellent (so 5/5). I agree with many of the other comments that I would have preferred the papers to be separated out (similar to the years 5, 4 and 3 test papers and answers) as this is a lot easier to handle isn't so scary for the student (so 4/5)

Madeleine (03/05/2016)


Very useful material: I agree that it would be better if the answers were in a separate booklet, and it wasn't clear that all the papers were in one book. I would have preferred separate packs, not least because the book is so difficult to photocopy.
Many parents and tutors want a child to be able to have more than one go at the material, and therefore don't wish to write directly into the book, hence the wish to photocopy pages, without any intention of breaching copyright.
Incidentally, the book isn't easy to write into without breaking the spine, again because of the size.

In brief, great content, but the design needs work.



My daughter needed extra help and I wanted something that would be as close as possible to the 2016 Mock SATs papers I found online.

I'm really pleased with the content, all of the papers have tested my daughter and I can see a real improvement with each new paper she completes.

My only problem is with the book. After using it for a few day the spine split so pages were falling out. In the end I've had to take the section out completely and staple it together. It might have been better to have the answers in a separate pack to avoid this problem.



Great tests. I expected them to be in pack form rather than one book. However, great product and speedy delivery.



Book really good for practice.



Very good product. Pleased I could get the materials and mark scheme all in one pack.
My one 'even better if' point would be to put it in a ring binder which would make it easier to use.

Fiona Grewcock(11/03/2016)


I decided to get the Exam Ninja 2016 practice papers when my child's school admitted to being "slightly behind" on getting ready for new curriculum and therefore the 2016 SATs. They had a lot of old papers but in light of the changes these were largely irrelevant. I wanted real papers and all of them.

This book is excellent enables you to emulate the exam but with the answers available. We realised holes in my daughters knowledge which we worked on immediately.

English sections means that as a parent I can be re-taught grammar and therefore be of help to my children. Will definitely be buying for my Yr5 next year!

Agree with other review, would be easier if answers were in a separate book.

Suzanne (01/03/2016)


Very good service and the papers are relevant and appropriate for practise. I agree - it would be helpful if the answers were separate as it would be easier to manage.



Very good set of tests but would have preferred them to be in separate sets.

Chris H(23/02/2016)


Plenty of material in this book. Spelling tests are very difficult.



These tests are very very similar to the 2016 Mock SATS - with some questions literally having the diagram turned around. Nevertheless, I took it into school and it has ended that my HoY liked it that the Year 6 Teachers are going to be getting one.



Good service and useful product.

Would be helpful if the answers were in a separate booklet or could be removed easily.
