## KS2 Maths Assessment Papers – The Reasoning Papers

KS2 maths assessment papers are split into three papers – the first paper is the arithmetic paper, and papers two and three are ‘reasoning’ based. If you are planning on practising reasoning KS2 maths papers with your child, we have some top tips to help you make it feel like a real exam.

Firstly, make sure your child has everything they need for the test. They cannot use tracing paper or a calculator for this test. However, they will need a black or blue pen, a sharp, dark pencil for their mathematical drawings, a rubber, a mirror, a protractor or angle measurer, and a ruler, which shows millimetres and centimetres. When your child is ready to begin the practise exam, read the instructions to them. Begin by getting them to write their name on the front of the test paper. You may think this is pointless considering it is just a practise, but it is important to make it feel as close to the real exam as possible. You should then instruct your child to turn to page three, and then read the instructions to them. This will include informing them to use any white space on the page if they need to do working out. Also, you will need to tell them that they need to put a line through the response they don’t want the marker to read if they want to change their answer, and that they should check their work carefully. You will need to inform them when they have five minutes left, and again when the test is over.
