1 Year 7 French Summer Writing Assessment

2 Notes for teachers 1) There is just one writing assessment. The plan is that it can be completed in one lesson, the same lesson that students do the speaking assessment (speaking lasts 1 ½ minute max per student) 2) It will be done on paper (or ex books, not on the sheets, although class teacher may want copies for students to have in front of them. 3) Differentiation is clearly by outcome but is built in also to the progressive format of the test i.e.Students in lower sets may spend the majority of time on tasks 1 and 2 and then just manage 1 or 2 phrases for task 3 – this is what we would expect if you look at the NC writing levels below. 4) We will award NC levels (including half levels) according to the criteria below 5) With top sets, stress the 100 words maximum word limit and make it clear that they could show level 5 within 100 words and how this is done i.e. Use of 2 tenses, use of longer sentences with opinion and reason, and use of other persons of the verb e.g. A mi amiga le gustan las matemáticas. We need to be very clear what is required for the higher levels. 6) The level itself (e.g.3.5 can be entered directly on to the year 7 excel marksheet) 7) It would be very useful to photocopy a sample of your class speaking assessments – e.g. 3 showing a variety of achievement levels. These could be used by teachers and with students next year. New NC Level Description: writing levels Level 2 Pupils write one or two short sentences, following a model, and fill in the words on a simple form. They label items and write familiar short phrases correctly. When they write familiar words from memory, their spelling may be approximate. Level 3 Pupils write a few short sentences, with support, using expressions that they have already learnt. They express personal responses. They write short phrases from memory and their spelling is readily understandable. Level 4 Pupils write short texts on familiar topics, adapting language that they have already learnt. They draw largely on memorised language. They begin to use their knowledge of grammar to adapt and substitute individual words and set phrases. Level 5 Pupils write short texts on a range of familiar topics, using simple sentences. They refer to recent experiences or future plans, as well as to everyday activities. Although there may be some mistakes, the meaning can be understood with little or no difficulty.

5 3. Now write a short text about your school. (maximum 100 words) Try to write it as a letter or to a French friend. You might want to give these details: the name of your school a short description of it the times of the school day details about your timetable (e.g. What subjects you have on a particular day) the subjects you study and when your opinions about your subjects and your reasons why your favourite subject and teacher and why what one of your friend’s likes and why your plans for next week in school (e.g. shat subjects you will have, what clubs you will go to, or even what you will do after school) NB: you do not have to include all the details above, just write what you are sure of. If you find it difficult to think about writing a letter, start by writing down individual sentences that you know in French about your school and school subjects. You could do this like a mind map or spider diagram: My school My school is called... It is in......It is very big and It has....teachers and..
