Thousands of children in Havering are being tested on their maths, English and science this month - but how would you fare?

Some parents and teachers argue the testing system is outdated and places too much stress and pressure on children at too young an age.

You might be confident that your grammar skills are top of the class but now this sample of questions from last year’s exams will find out for sure.
