1 Key Stage 1 Assessment Information Meeting

2 National Curriculum Primary curriculum applies to children in Years 1-6. Introduced in September The curriculum is structured into core and foundation subjects. Matters, skills and processes to be taught are set out in the programmes of study. The National Curriculum provides an outline of core knowledge around which teachers can develop exciting and stimulating lessons to promote the development of pupils knowledge, understanding and skills as part of the wider school curriculum.

3 Challenge Differentiation in class through cognitive challenge in order to deepen understanding rather than just increase knowledge. Children may be basic, developing or deep in different aspects of each subject area. It s important not to accelerate learning but to deepen understanding.

4 Basic, developing and deep activities Literacy To use imaginative description (in the context of weather) Basic: match adjectives to the picture of winter Developing: write a sentence describing the picture using well-chosen adjectives Deep: write a poem about winter, analyse the language features and suggest improvements Maths To add three 1 digit numbers Basic: complete number sentences using concrete apparatus to support calculation Developing: answer word problems Deep: investigate whether there is a pattern when you add three odd numbers and explain findings

5 Changes to levels

6 Tracking progress Schools are able to choose their own methods for assessment and tracking. Mr Fish has made a program using Excel which enables us to track progress. It lists all the National Curriculum objectives for Reading, Writing and Maths and enables a teacher to say if a child has partly, mostly or fully achieved an objective. Teachers will be sharing this information at your child s Parent Consultation in the Spring term. At the moment your child s Writing and Maths targets are taken from our Over Assessment Procedures (OAP s) Sometimes we put specific targets for Reading in your child s Home School Diary. In the Curriculum section on our school website you can see in the Maths area a list of Home Learning Links. Stage 1 is for Year 1 and Stage 2 is for Year 2.

7 Examples of a Year 1 grid for maths and writing

8 Changes to statutory assessments Year 1 children will continue to do a phonics screening check in June. This assesses children s reading skills through their ability to segment and blend sounds in both real and pseudo words. Year 2 assessments will take place in May Extensive changes to these tests, as well as the increased expectations of where the children will get to by the end of Key Stage 1.

9 Year 2 tests A new set of KS1 national curriculum tests replaces the previous tests and tasks. The new tests consist of: English reading Paper 1: combined reading prompt and answer booklet (30 mins) English reading Paper 2: reading booklet and reading answer booklet (40 mins) English grammar, punctuation and spelling Paper 1: spelling (15 mins) English grammar, punctuation and spelling Paper 2: questions (20 mins) Mathematics Paper 1: arithmetic (20 mins) Mathematics Paper 2: reasoning (35 mins) There is no longer a test for English writing. Timings are a guide only.

10 Grammar test questions

11 Grammar test questions

12 Reading test questions

13 Arithmetic test questions

14 Maths reasoning test questions

15 Scaled scores For the KS1 tests a scaled score of 100 will always represent the expected standard. A pupil s scaled score will be based on their raw score. The raw score is the total number of marks a pupil receives in a test, based on the number of questions they answered correctly. The pupil s raw score will be translated into a scaled score using a conversion table. Conversion tables will be published after the tests have been administered. Scaled scores allow for comparison of results year on year.

16 Reporting to parents Levels of 2b etc. no longer exist. Schools are able to now decide how they assess children and track progress. Language used will be: Below expected standard Working towards expected standard Working at the expected standard Working at the greater depth within the expected standard The term mastery is being used by the government to refer to children who are applying their knowledge and understanding fluently and at depth within the expected standard.
