If you’re busy preparing Year 6 students for their KS2 SATs tests, you’ll love this free Year 6 SATs practice papers download.

The practice pack contains three texts:

The comprehension pack includes:
- Reading booklet
- Reading answer booklet
- Content domains checklist
- Teachers’ answers booklet
There are multiple ways you could use this practice pack download – including as a practice SATs paper under test conditions. You could also use it in group or whole-class reading lessons to cover different question types.
You can also treat the pack as three smaller comprehension activities, with pupils reading the texts and completing the accompanying questions.
