    How important do you think it is for a child to practice KS 1 SATs papers/tests before they actually do the test at school.  I know that the KS1 is marked by teachers and used purely as a guide to ascertain the predicted level of a child later in their educational life so am wondering whether I should encourage my child to practice/revise for these tests a little or not.

    Your thoughts please.

      Familiarity with the test format really helps a child get their best score.  I think practice tests are good experience for this reason--but focusing on how the questions are presented and how the test works rather than content.
