In line with all children in Wales, Y2 to Y6 will be undertaking National Tests in Reading and Reasoning during the period 7th May to the 14th May 2019. The time leading up to 7th May is very important preparation time for the children so please ensure that the children do not miss any unnecessary time out of school.


The children will sit two tests:


Reading – This is made up of short questions based on two or more texts. Some of the questions check how well the text has been understood, others aim to find out if children are able to make judgments about what they are reading.




Reasoning test measures how well children can use what they know to solve everyday problems.  This will be completed during the dates set by the Welsh Government.


The procedural test will be done online during lessons this measures the number, shape and data skills.
