Here are the new Government examples of what a Y6 child should be able to do to be at expected standard for their age. There are comments with examples to explain each.Teachers will assess writing in school, moderate or compare judgements in school with other teachers and across schools (in the MAT schools we do this each term) and some schools will (as usual) have a local authority officer moderate with teachers in a 4 year cycle.
For reading and maths children will sit the SATS. There are examples here too of what children are expected to know and do in maths to reach the expected standard. Teachers also give their own assessment of your child's standards and this is sent electronically to DFE then shared with their new secondary school.
If you have any questions, please see Miss Franklin or Mrs Green. Your child's progress towards standards expected will be discussed at parents evening.
