Thousands of parents took their children out of school on Tuesday to protest exams which are deemed too demanding for the average seven-year-old.

The SATs (Standard Assessment Tests), which start at the end of infant school, include questions in English, Maths and Science aimed to check a child’s progress.

But a petition has been started by Let Our Kids Be Kids campaign encouraging teachers to boycott SATs tests - because a week of exams are seen as too much for an average Year 2 pupil, aged between six and seven.

So, we gathered some questions from a sample Key Stage 1 exam papers for 2016 and created this quiz for you to test your knowledge.
