Worksheet Overview

This is a practice Reading paper in the style of a Key Stage 2 National Test.


This is an assessment with a variety of Reading questions.

Some are multiple-choice and some will require you to type in an answer.


In the real Key Stage 2 National Test, you will write your answers in a special test booklet, normally in a box or space.

At EdPlace, you will use the computer to enter your answers in the spaces provided. 


At the start of each question, there will be a set of instructions which you will need to apply until further instruction.


You should work quickly and carefully through the questions. 


The timer is set for 60 minutes for this practice paper, although you can keep working after the timer has run out.

There are 39 questions. 

This means that you should aim for no more than 1 minute per question and hopefully, as you become more confident, less than 1 minute.


You may find some of the questions difficult.

If you are struggling to answer a question do not waste time on it, but move onto the next question.



We have no affiliation to the Standards and Testing Agency (STA) and these questions represent our own unique content developed by EdPlace Key Stage 2 English authors.
