  • Also use lots of verbal praise, stickers and forest value cards.

End of ks1 assessment
End of KS1 Assessment

  • At the end of Year 2- levels in speaking and listening, reading, writing, maths and science.

  • Based on teacher assessment- the level we see the child working at on a regular basis.

  • We do SAT’s tests because they are statutory.

  • We only use them to back-up our judgements. Children will not really know we are doing ‘tests’

Level 3 Writing

Reading books
Reading Books

  • Currently we are still supervising the children when they change their books (correct colour, writing it in diary etc)

  • Soon we will be encouraging them to independently choose and write in their diary- with opportunities on Mon, Weds, Fri to do this.

  • If they haven’t changed it for ages- remind them!!!

  • Don’t worry if they keep the book for a little while… books in Year 2 can get very long!
