1 Assessing in the New Curriculum West Lodge Primary School
2 Reason for Assessment Workshop The introduction of the new assessment framework in line with the new curriculum Purpose of Assessment Workshop 1. Help parents understand how their children are assessed in school and why. 2. Share the key curriculum changes in Literacy and Maths.
4 New Primary Curriculum
5 What is the National Curriculum? The National Curriculum defines the programmes of study for key subjects in maintained/ state primary and secondary schools in England. Fundamentally, it sets out what your child is supposed to learn and when. The current Government's view was that the old curriculum wasn't sufficiently challenging. The new curriculum has been developed partly by comparing England's curriculum to those in other countries. It combines the best elements of what is taught in the world's most successful school systems, with some of the most best practice from schools in England.

7 Curriculum Aims At West Lodge our curriculum aims to: Help our pupils to become independent, enquiring and collaborative learners. Develop happy, motivated life-long learners equipped for the future. Nurture healthy, caring and respectful individuals. Create thinking individuals, with values, who make a positive contribution to the world. Provide challenge, enabling children to reach their full potential. Be inclusive and diverse allowing a range of opportunities for children to find their element. Help children develop a growth mindset, a love of challenge and create an environment where children embrace risk.
8 There is a brilliant child locked inside every student!
9 Two Quotes that underpin our Curriculum There is a brilliant child locked inside every student. (Our curriculum must provide a range of opportunities to meet the varied needs of all learners and give every child the best possible chance of finding their element ) Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire. (Our curriculum must spark the love of learning ignite the fire so that children become active learners and embark on a lifelong journey of learning)
10 West Lodge Curriculum Drivers Community Spiritual & Moral Enquiry Environment
11 New Primary Curriculum for Mathematics Aims: Fluency in the fundamentals Reason mathematically Solve problems
12 New Expectations Current Year 6 objective (Old Curriculum) I can order a set of fractions by establishing a common denominator. Current Year 5 objective (New Curriculum) I can add and subtract fractions by establishing a common denominator.
13 New Primary Curriculum for Mathematics What s out? Informal written methods of calculation Calculators Separate strand for using and applying What s in? Roman numerals (Y3) Times tables up to 12 x 12 Equivalence between metric and imperial Long division and algebra (Y6) Financial education has been reinforced, with a renewed emphasis on essential numeracy skills, using money and working with percentages. There is a focus on counting beyond whole numbers, eg: decimals, fractions. What s there less of? Emphasis on estimation Less work on place value Less work on data handling (statistics) but more reference to interpretation of data. What s there more of? More challenging objectives, especially in number There is a greater emphasis on the use of large numbers, algebra, ratio and proportion at an earlier age. Formal written methods introduced earlier More work on fractions
14 Mastery Over Acceleration With each objective in Maths, children now need to show they understand the: Factual - I know that Procedural - I know how Conceptual - I know why
15 Multiply whole numbers and decimals by 10, 10o and 1000 Factual - 16 x 100 = = 0.18 Procedural 3.6 x? = 360? 1000 = 0.03 Conceptual Khalid says, I have 300g of sugar. If I add another 0.2 kg that will mean I now have 500g. Explain why Khalid is correct.
16 New Primary Curriculum for English General changes A new focus on development of vocabulary. The reading and recitation of poetry are given increased value. Continued importance given to speaking and listening skills. Phonics teaching has heavy emphasis in both key stages. Reading comprehension is explicitly mentioned separately to phonics. Change of emphasis in the teaching of writing, from a range of genres to quality writing. Key changes Phonics teaching to be continued for those who need it. Addition of the learning of classic and modern poetry, and recitation of poetry. Reading for pleasure explicitly mentioned Specific spelling rules to be taught in prescribed year groups. Significantly increased expectations in grammar and punctuation, presented for each year group in detailed appendices. Debating and presenting skills gain emphasis.
17 English in Key Stage 1 Reading: o Emphasis on reading for pleasure, re-reading books and reading aloud; o Making inferences from texts o Increased focus on engaging with and interpreting texts; o Learning of poetry (including reciting poetry) introduced.
18 English in Key Stage 1 Writing: o Increased challenge, including developing stamina for writing o Longer compositions and proof-reading of own writing; o Increased focus on composition, structure and convention; o Deeper focus on learning grammar and punctuation; o Mastering the use of capital letters on all proper nouns; o Joined writing expected in Year 2. Spelling: o Specific spellings, e.g. days of the week, prefixes & suffixes; o Pupils expected to write sentences dictated by the teacher.
19 English in Key Stage 2 Reading: o Read for pleasure; o Word reading: pupils applying their knowledge to understand the meaning of new words; o Learning of classic & modern poetry (including reciting poetry) introduced; o Précising long passages of writing; o Understanding of reading through formal presentations, such as debate.
20 English in Key Stage 2 Writing: o Greatly increased expectations in grammar and punctuation; o Children have to identify and label complex grammatical concepts, punctuation and spelling rules; o Expectation that children expertly use and apply the grammar and punctuation concepts in independent writing to create specific effects; o Evaluate, edit and proof-read own work. Spelling: o Statutory lists of words to be learnt in Years 3-6; o Specific spelling rules to be taught.
21 Mastery Over Acceleration In Literacy, children are expected to produce quality writing that has a greater control over their spelling, grammar and punctuation. Children will now spend longer periods of time on a genre. Children will write back to back pieces of extended writing in the same genre to allow children to apply feedback given and to deepen their understanding. Greater emphasis on writing across the curriculum

25 Why Assess? Knowing how each pupil is performing allows teachers to help individuals improve. Assessment plays a key role in helping schools to improve outcomes. This in turn promotes improvement at class level, then at school level.

43 In Summary 2014 National Curriculum The new curriculum has been described as setting a higher bar for primary school children, therefore helping to improve standards. This means that the much of the content of the English and Maths curriculum is now being taught a year earlier e.g. adding fractions used to be taught in Year 6 but is now taught in Year 5.
44 In Summary Assessment in the New Curriculum The government has now dropped the use of National Curriculum levels, and schools have been empowered to create their own measure of pupils attainment. Each year group has clearly identified Year Group Expectations in the new National Curriculum which all pupils have been working towards.
45 What it will look like in reports Pupils achievement against the year group expectations will be shown as: Working Towards National Expectation Working Within National Expectation Exceeding National Expectation Reminder to focus on content not the label growth mindset Effect on Years 1, 3, 4 and 5 Bar already raised in EYFS
47 Local Review - Vanguard West Lodge is in the vanguard of schools with regard to the introduction of new arrangements for assessment a summary of the first term s pupil tracking data for Years 1, 3 and 4 was shared with the HSIP team. Nasim Butt HSIP Adviser and Lead Inspector for Ofsted
48 Ofqual Any new assessment system will take approximately three years to fully embed and produce meaningful and accurate data.
49 Assessment is not meant to be used as a measure of your child s ability at school but as a means to improve their ability to learn: to help them acquire knowledge, deepen understanding and develop skills.
Assessment reform As part of our reforms to the national curriculum, the current system of levels used to report children s attainment and progress will be removed from September 2014 and will not be replaced.
