Optional SATs were often used in schools prior to 2015 to assess children's progress in maths and English 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, available exclusively to TheSchoolRun subscribers.
From 2016, children will take new SATs exams in line with the revised National Curriculum. These practice papers are based on the old-style optional SATs but are still useful for offering 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 B includes:
- Y3 maths SATs practice paper B
- 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.
