English grammar, punctuation and spelling test to be introduced for Year 6 2013A new English test is to be introduced in May 2013 for Year 6. It will form part of the KS2 national tests.
The test will assess your child's ability in grammar, punctuation, spelling and vocabulary (possibly handwriting too - this will be confirmed in the Autumn term of 2012)
The original English writing test is to be discontinued but teachers will make a separate judgement on how well your child is doing on writing composition - such as composing letters or stories.
The Department for Education have published a leaflet for parents about the proposed changes. We will give you further information about the test in due course and how best you can help your child to prepare for it.
