National Reading Test Resources

These materials are provided to exemplify the types of text and questions that are used for the statutory National Reading Tests.

There are four reading tests in English and four reading tests in Welsh (these are unique tests, not translations) for use in May which will be used across pairs of year groups – Years 2/3, Years 4/5, Years 6/7 and Years 8/9. However, for the purposes of these samples, materials are presented in the following way, with a view to making it easier for use in schools.

  • Years 2/3 – learner version and teacher version.
  • Years 4/5/6 (primary materials) – learner version and teacher version.
  • Years 7/8/9 (secondary materials) – learner version and teacher version.

The materials are intended to be used together – with the learner version and the teacher version complementing each other.
