This worksheet contains questions similar to those you will find in the 2013 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.
