Preparing for the 2016 written arithmetic tests

What are the two fundamentals required for children to reach their potential in the 2016 Arithmetic Tests in KS1 and KS2?

For children to be able to reach their maximum potential in the 2016 KS1 and KS2 Arithmetic Tests they clearly need two things: to understand the relevant maths, and to be used to the format and style of the tests they will take.

Which is why we have produced the new photocopiable practice papers in Written Arithmetic prepared specifically for the 2016 syllabus.

Each book contains six photocopiable test papers, similar in style to the new government tests for 2016, and the volumes are available either as printed copies within a book, or as PDFs in an e-book, or as a download from the web site.

Answers are provided, along with assessment score indications at the levels of
