Hundreds of 11-year-old students across Norfolk and Suffolk will this week sit their SATs exams - but how would you fare?

Year six pupils sitting the exams will be asked to identify subordinate clauses, antonyms and sentences in the present perfect tense, as well as modal verbs and split digraphs.

We've pulled together a selection of questions from last year's exams - the first to test pupils on a new primary curriculum introduced in 2014.

Last year, just 50pc of pupils in Norfolk and 49pc in Suffolk met the new expected standard in reading, writing and maths alone.

It put Norfolk 118th out of 152 local authorities and Suffolk in 129th.
