  • Introduction
PREVIEW ONLY. SIGN UP TO USE WORKSHEET.

This worksheet contains questions similar to those you will find in the new Key Stage 2 Level 6 Grammar, Vocabulary and Punctuation short answer test.

 

You can work your way through the test like a normal worksheet or you can treat it like a test and time yourself. The actual test has a total of 21 marks as well. It takes 20 minutes, but if you are quite slow at typing you could give yourself a little longer.

 

You can use this worksheet to give you a guide as to which areas of English you need to brush up on. For example, if you struggle with questions about the passive voice, you can go back and do the worksheets that teach you about active and passive constructions.
