KS2 Reading Test

The reading test will be a single paper with questions based on 3 texts – this will incorporate fiction, non-fiction and poetry.  The texts and questions get more difficult as the children progress through the test, with the Greater Depth elements being found towards the end.

Your child will have one hour, including reading time, to complete the test.

There will be 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.’
