3 What is the difference between testing and teacher assessment? Teacher assessment is used during everyday teaching and to give an overall attainment grade for pupils at the end of the year based on how your child performs in class independently Test results is the score your child achieves in the test only Both teacher assessment and test results are sent to secondary schools We work with other primary schools to ensure our assessments are accurate

4 Writing Teacher assessment of independent writing only Writing across the curriculum will be taken into account Heavy emphasis on grammar, punctuation and spelling; handwriting and fluency of writing; vocabulary;

5 Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation 2 test papers Spelling paper: 20 spellings, worth one mark each Grammar and punctuation paper: variety of questions including multiple choice and longer written answers(45 minutes) Strict marking procedure – spelling, punctuation and grammar must be accurate throughout the entirety of the two papers Emphasis on pupils knowing the terminology of grammar Marks from both the spelling paper and the grammar and punctuation paper will be added to give the overall score

6 Reading One paper (60 minutes) High expectations of the stamina and speed of reading, not only the understanding Questions are designed to assess the pupils’ comprehension of the text Some questions will be multiple choice, some will require longer written answers. The marks available directly correlate to the length and complexity of the answer required

8 How can you help your child? Reassure and nurture them – exams can be stressful! Support your child in completing any homework tasks set by the teacher Ensure your child always has excellent attendance Ensure your child arrives at school on time – if your child is late, valuable learning time is lost Ensure your child has a good nights sleep and a healthy breakfast every morning

9 How can you help your child? Homework forms an important part of the lesson, including valuable feedback for your child (it is also an important part of transition into secondary school) Revision guides as homework Read with your child – discuss the plot, characters, what has happened in the book and what might happen next Practise times tables everyday! If there are any issues at all with your child’s learning please come and see someone in school
