End of Year Assessment

Testing takes place in Week 4 - that means we have 14 days of teaching and learning before this takes place. This assessment is very important as it provides a 'picture' of each child's learning and direction for future teaching and learning.
What can teachers and children do between now and then to ensure we get the most accurate 'picture' of each child's progress and achievement over the year?
Below are the thoughts and ideas from last night's staff meeting.

Our DP Kate shared some of her thinking also

I must acknowledge Dot Apelu for her wonderful blog 'The Writing Plan for our junior school'. Dot's blog provided the inspiration for our assessment preparation.
