ENGLISH COMPREHENSION – WHAT TO EXPECT

In the English Comprehension assessment, children will be given 3 passages, of which they must answer questions in relation to each passage.

These passages can be anything, and won’t be known until the child sits the paper. However, the best way to practice for such questions is to undergo similar practice questions to ensure your child improves their comprehension.

The passages can be literature based on any of the following:

POETRY

Poetry is another form of literary writing.

Poems are often written to express feelings, thoughts of ideas. The subject of the poem will depend on what type of poem it is.

Below is a list of the types of poems you will be expected to know for your Key Stage 2 English SATs.

  • Sonnet
  • Narrative
  • Tanka
  • Limerick
  • Cinquain
  • Couple
  • Haiku
  • Acrostic
  • Ode
  • Free verse

PLAYS

A play is a form of literature that is written by a playwright, which is intended to be performed on stage, radio, TV or film.

The layout of a script is really important. Apart from looking aesthetically pleasing, it needs to be clear and look like a play script.

Two main features of a play include:

  • Character dialogue;
  • Stage directions.

A play is broken up into different scenes. These scenes act similarly to chapters in a book.

The scenes also allow for intermission, so that the audience (if being performed lived) can have a short break.

These scenes make up an act.

Sample KS2 English Questions

To help you get a better understanding of what the English SAT involves, let’s take a quick look at a few sample questions.

FREE | 3 Questions
KS2 English Test Practice Questions

KS2 ENGLISH QUESTION 01

He opened his eyes, pupils dilated. They were so intense that even a gust of air would not make him blink. Slowly, Freddie reached into his pocket and pulled out what appeared to be a torch. With his eyes still transfixed, he clicked the button. After a few seconds, he clicked it again.

Now stood there, was a man all in green; a long, silk cape which hovered above the floor, an eye mask that made his eyes look as black as coal and boots that, although appeared to look ‘normal’, had hidden features that placed him in a very strong position against all odds.

“It’s time…It’s time to get back to solving crime!” Freddie had not realised how loud he said this, and caused everyone to come to a complete silence.

He grinned slightly and said “I’ve got this…”

The author uses a simile in the extract. What are the exact words of the simile?

KS2 ENGLISH QUESTION 02

Discovering Dinosaurs by How2Become.

TRICERATOPS

The name Triceratops can be broken down into two – ‘tri’ meaning three, and ‘ceratops’ meaning horned face.

These dinosaurs lived in the late Cretaceous Period. It required its three horns in order to protect themselves from predators. These herbivores were about 8 metres in length and 3 metres in height. The skull of a Triceratops could grow to an astonishing 2 metres in length.

The dinosaur had strong stubby legs to support their heavy bodies. They had a sharp, parrot-like beak and a bony frill which acted as a guard to support their necks.

What does ‘Triceraptor’ mean? How does this dinosaur use this to their advantage?

KS2 ENGLISH QUESTION 03

There once was a turtle named Joe,

Considered the slowest of the slow.

He entered the race,

With slow as his pace,

On your marks, get set, go!

Describe the rhythm of this poem.

BLAZE. Remember me! For I am your own worst enemy. You stand no chance against the Almighty Blaze.

PRESTON. It’s not too late Blaze. You can stop all of this now. Don’t make it any worse for yourself.
