At the end of Key Stage 1, when your child is in Year 2, children sit the Key Stage 1 SATs in which they are assessed in Reading, Writing and Maths. At the end of Key Stage 2, at Year 6, children sit the Key Stage 2 SATs which cover Reading, Writing, English Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling (EGPS) and Maths including mental arithmetic.
