Key Stage 2 is an important stage in children’s learning – they will cover topics in greater depth and will learn a wide range of new material. Year 6 students work towards their national curriculum tests (SATs) and for the step up to secondary school.

Our classes for Key Stage 2 are designed to ensure that students grasp the new topics they are learning and to help build their confidence and fill in any gaps or weaknesses in their knowledge. Some students may be preparing for exams, while others may simply want to improve in their schoolwork.

The new national curriculum for Key Stage 2 is designed to help children study the subjects in greater depth, with a focus on reasoning and problem solving. Students will learn a lot of spelling, grammar and punctuation work in English, while in mathematics they will cover a wide range of topics, including proportion, fractions, decimals and some algebra. All of our classes are national curriculum based so we can provide as much support as we can with your child’s schoolwork.

For our Key Stage 2 pupils, we provide:

  • Weekly lessons in Mathematics and English
  • SATs preparation (for Year 5/6s)
  • Reasoning and problem solving activities
  • Reading practice
  • Reward system to keep them motivated
  • Holiday booster classes for SATs
  • Mock tests for SATs

What are SATS?

SATs stands for Scholastic Aptitude Test or Scholastic Assessment Test. The more rigorous SATs test the new National Primary Curriculum, which has been taught in schools since 2014. SATs tests have been designed to give a measure of attainment in three subjects areas: reading; maths and spelling, punctuation and grammar.

Key Stage 2 Reading

The reading test is a single paper with questions based on three passages of text. Your child will have one hour, including reading time, to complete the test. There are a selection of question types, including:

Ranking/ordering, e.g. ‘Number the events below to show the order in which they happen in the story’

Labelling, e.g. ‘Label the text to show the title of the story’

Find and copy, e.g. ‘Find and copy one word that suggests what the weather is like in the story’

Short constructed response, e.g. ‘What does the bear eat?’

Open-ended response, e.g. ‘Look at the sentence that begins Once upon a time. How does the writer increase the tension throughout this paragraph? Explain fully, referring to the text in your answer.’

Key Stage 2 Punctuation and Spelling Test

The grammar, punctuation and spelling test consists of two parts: a grammar and punctuation paper requiring short answers, lasting 45 minutes, and an aural spelling test of 20 words, lasting around 15 minutes. The grammar and punctuation test includes two sub-types of questions:

Selected response, e.g. ‘Identify the adjectives in the sentence below’

Constructed response, e.g. ‘Correct/complete/rewrite the sentence below,’ or, ‘The sentence below has an apostrophe missing. Explain why it needs an apostrophe.’

Key Stags 2 Maths

Children sit three papers in maths:

Paper 1: arithmetic, 30 minutes

Papers 2 and 3: reasoning, 40 minutes per paper

Paper 1 consists of fixed response questions, where children have to give the correct answer to calculations, including long multiplication and division. Papers 2 and 3 will involve a number of question types, including:

Multiple choice

True or false

Constrained questions, e.g. giving the answer to a calculation, drawing a shape or completing a table or chart

Less constrained questions, where children will have to explain their approach for solving a problem

It’s a great place to send my daughter to, she’s been going for about 6 months now and such an improvement in her school work already, and very friendly staff to. I would definitely recommend sending your child to them if u feel your child needs that extra support.

I have been attending to LBC tuition for 4 years and my grades have raised and I have also moved up sets. It also gives you the ability to become quicker at doing questions and it’ll give you a great understanding of GCSE questions.

Great place! My daughter passed her 11+ exams.

My daughter has a learning disability and struggles with her reading and writing. Since starting at LBC Tuition in May this year, I and also school have seen an improvement in her reading. My daughter enjoys her weekly lesson and her tutor is really supportive.

Lucia Simpkin

My daughter has been going here for a while and i think its the best decision I made sending her to LBC. She passed her 11+ test and Allhumdulliah is doing well at school.Both main owners are very understanding in general. I will  carry on sending her when she starts high school as well because it will help her if shes struggling with anything.
