I've been retired for a couple of years. A parent has asked me to help their child prepare for Year 2 SATs. I understand the child is quite bright but speaks English as a second language. Since I was last in school I believe the testing requirements for Year 2 have changed quite a lot. Can you give me some idea what the expectation is, particularly for reading and writing. Do the children still complete a reading booklet with comprehension questions? Do they have to do a long and short piece of writing and if so what genre are they expected to be able to write? Any advice would be welcome.
