Optional SATS Papers – Year three English

There are two sets of optional English papers available for children to use as practice papers.

Because they are now a little adrift from the syllabus and the new format of KS2 tests they should not be used to mean anything definitive in terms of results.

When these papers are used they should simply be seen as a good benchmark of progress. If children do very well then they are on track to do well in their KS2 SATS, if children do not perform at the top end then they may benefit from more help.
