Optional SATs papers: Y3 English 2006
Prior to 2016, optional SATs were used by teachers to help them assess children's progress at the end of each school year. This official Year 3 English SATs paper from 2006, free to download, can be used for at-home revision and practice.
Keystage:  KS2, Year 3

Optional SATs were exams used in some schools to measure students' progress at the end of Years 3, 4 and 5. In 2016, the SATs system was overhauled to reflect the new curriculum. These papers are the 'old-style' optional SATs, but can still be used to help your child prepare for end-of-year tests. For information about optional SATs and how they are used in schools, read out parents' guide to the Y3, Y4 and Y5 SATs to find out.
