How do we know we are right? Year Group moderation (ongoing) Moderation with other schools (regularly) External moderation with someone from the Local Authority (at the end of the year) Tests/Assessments Teachers are assessing children against National Curriculum Level Descriptors

throughout the year. These have been shared with you at parents consultation and will be at the next one too. In May/June teachers will be deciding which level they think your child is working at. This is called Teacher Assessment. Tests/Assessments Children will do the relevant test/task which will give its own National Curriculum Level

This should (and usually does) give the same level as the teacher expects. If it is different, the teacher will look at the childs work from across the year to see which level is correct. Teachers need to go with what they know about the child. Young child can underperform (some might even look like they have overperformed)

Reading Level One Read a real book to a teacher. Answer some oral questions about what they have read. Level Two Read a real book to a teacher. Answer some oral questions about what they have read. OR Do a Comprehension Paper. Children read a whole story/ non-fiction text and answer questions and the end of

Paper Writing Long Piece of Writing Short piece of writing Spelling Test The writing pieces will have been well prepared for and planned. They will be based on a topic that the children know well. The writing will be independent and done within a reasonable time limit. Children

L3 Paper Speaking and Listening and Science There are no formal tests for these subject areas. Teachers have been collecting evidence throughout the year and will use this evidence to make a Teacher Assessment using the levels. What will it look like?

The classroom will be set out as normal. The children will work with their teacher in small groups or 1:1. Other children in the class will be learning in independent activities as they would normally be doing. Not all children will be doing the same assessments. If the teacher thinks that a child needs a quiet space to minimise distraction, this will be

arranged. When will they be? Teacher Assessments have been taking place since your child started school! Tests start mainly after Easter and finish in June. How many tests will they do?

Short Writing Task Long Writing Task Spelling Test Either read with the teacher OR the L2 Comprehension Paper OR the L3 Comprehension Paper

Either the L1 Maths Task OR the L2 Maths Paper OR the L3 Maths Paper What will I be told? In July you will get your childs report, containing their SATs result. You will be told your childs level in Reading, Writing, Maths, Speaking and Listening and Science. This will be the Teacher Assessment, after taking into account all of your childs work done across the year and their work

in the formal assessments. You will not be told how they did in the actual tests. You will be told the results as percentages for the whole Year Group and the National Results as a comparison. What Some Of You Are Thinking

Panic!!! I must go to WH Smith! We need to practice! After Easter I will have to ask them if they have done any tests! I need to know which level they are!

What You Need To Do!!! Stay calm! Make sure your children are getting plenty of sleep and breakfast. If working out maths problems, encourage them to use practical apparatus or record their thinking and make sure they have understood the question. When reading, ask them questions about what they have read, especially questions such as which word

told you? When your child is writing, encourage them to be interesting! Examples of Past Papers www.emaths.co.uk Look at the front cover to check the right level for your child. Look at the answer booklet for the maths answers!

For Level 3 Reading you will need the reading booklet and the question booklet. What we will do Tell you their level at the next parents consultation Teach your child the skills that they need to make progress through the levels. Track their progress to ensure that they are reaching their potential. Speak to you if we have any concerns.

Show them the tests so that they are not strange on the day. Use our knowledge of them to give them the level that is right for them. Questions? Holly Park Primary School SATs in Year Two
