Year 1 (aged 6): phonics screening

No end of key stage SATs assessments took place at the end of the academic years 2021 and 2020, due to the Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent restrictions.

At the end of Year 1, pupils are tested on their ability to match sounds with letters. This assessment is known as the Phonics Screening. ‘Sounding out words’ using phonological awareness and understanding of sound-letter correspondence is a key early reading skill. Using phonology is seen as a most important starting point.

Multiplication Times Table check 

What is the Year 4 Times Tables Test?
The Year 4 Times Tables Test, known by the government and schools as the Year 4 Multiplication Tables Check (MTC), is an annual check to see if Year 4 pupils in England and Wales have a good level of times tables knowledge.  Primary-school children are expected to know all their times tables up to 12x12. Under the current National Curriculum, children are supposed to know their times tables by the end of Year 4.
