2016 key stage 1 English grammar, punctuation and spelling test: sample questions, mark scheme and commentary
Information to help teachers prepare for the new tests of the new national curriculum.
This document was designed to give teachers an indication of how the new curriculum will be assessed from 2016. It reflects areas of the curriculum that have changed, therefore the questions may be unfamiliar or more challenging. The document doesn’t cover the full range of content or range of difficulty that the final test will assess.
We recommend that this is not used for assessment purposes.
A full set of sample tests and mark schemes was published in July 2015.
