My daughter is currently sitting KS2 sats. She said she sat a maths paper today. Does anyone know how many tests will she have this week? She gets quite nervous about tests.

As mrz said. Ours are doing them this week. Did maths yesterday and spellings today.

We are doing them at the moment - on week 3 of 4. But they only do SATs in a morning, and only 1 morning a week, some will do 2 mornings (level 3s) and this week they will do all do 2.

We have had this plan of action:

week 1 - reading
week 2 - maths
week 3 - long writing; spelling
week 4 - short writing

The children kind of know they are doing something different to normal. But they are doing a lot more fun enrichment stuff too to counterbalance it and all seem fine about it. We do half the class at a time for various reasons - so the other half are in the enrichment - sport, art/craft, drama, needlework, ICT, increased outdoor time, etc.

My DD is loving them
Off with the teacher in small groups
Doing a SAT
Getting a sweet
Getting a longer playtime, she would do it all the time.

And when the teacher is off with another group a proportion of the class is missing so it is all very relaxed and easy!

What's the average level and sub level expected for end of y2? Is it 2b?

Yes 2b from what I understand.
Only level 2 is broken down, so the marks go:
1 (under performing)
2c
2b
2a
3 (over performing)

Conversation with DD today (she's in y3, some friends have siblings in y6):
DD - I don't want to do SATs in Y6
Us - Why not? They're just like those special booklets you do sometimes
DD - Are they?! I want to go to y6 and do SATs

I guess it is partly on how a school sells things ...
She had no idea she did KS1 SATs, and we certainly never told her.
