Prior to 2016, children in some schools took optional SATs in Years 3, 4 and 5. From 2016, the SATs system is changing in line with the new National Curriculum. These 2006 KS2 Year 5 maths optional SATs papers were previously used to assess pupil progress at the end of the school year. These are the 'old-style' optional SATs but are still useful for exam practice.
This pack includes:
- Y5 maths SATs 2003 paper A
- Y5 maths SATs 2003 paper B
- Mental maths pupil answer sheet
- Teachers' guide and mark scheme, paper A and paper B
- Mental maths test transcript
All the papers and marking materials have been merged into one easy download for you.
The Y5 maths optional SATs consists of three papers: Paper A, Paper B and a mental maths test. In schools children would complete one paper and the mental maths test on one day and the other paper on the following day. Calculators are no longer used in primary schools, but when these tests were administered, they were not allowed when completing Paper A, but could be used for Paper B.
