Just wondering if old level 6 sats are any good for pupils who want to achieve greater depth in reading and maths in year 6? I know you cannot compare old level 6 with "greater depth" but in terms of content etc is it ok to use them to practice?
I think it's totally different. LV6 is beyond normal primary level. But new SATs are tested within what is expected in primary level, but more depth in understanding/extended knowledge of the concept?( I maybe wrong.)
It was l6 when dd did her sats. I'm not sure how they compare to the new sats, but in the maths there isn't anything that imo requires any deeper understanding than L5. Different content perhaps but doesn't need more ability, so no use if that's what you need for greater depth.
Spag, again I'd say the same, and to a large degree obtainable by memory rather than understanding/ skill.
Reading slightly different, in that there was a huge leap between l5 and l6 in terms of expectations, but imo rather rigid expectations rather than about demonstrating a deep understanding.
