Optional SATs papers: Y3 maths set A

TheSchoolRun optional SATs papers: Y3 maths set A
Download this Y3 maths practice optional SATs paper, written by a primary-school teacher to mirror the old optional SATs papers used in schools before 2015 to assess pupils' progress at the end of the KS2 school year, to offer your child some extra at-home practice.
Keystage:  KS2, Year 3

In some schools optional SATs were used up until 2015 to assess children's progress at the end of the school year. Only a very limited number of official optional SATs papers were available to parents for Y3, Y4 and Y5 English and maths (you can download them for free from TheSchoolRun), so we commissioned our own 'mock' papers.

In 2016, new SATs exams wereg introduced in line with the revised 2014 National Curriculum. These mock papers, available exclusively to TheSchoolRun subscribers, are based on the old-style optional SATs but will still offer your child extra practice opportunities and have been written to reflect the kind of questions they'll find in the official papers.

Year 3 maths optional SATs, set A includes:

  • Y3 maths SATs practice paper A
  • Mental maths pupil answer sheet
  • Mental maths test transcript for the parent to read
  • Mark scheme

All the papers and marking materials have been merged into one easy download.
