Spellings will be tested on a Monday and new spellings will be sent home on the same day. Please ensure that your child remembers to bring in their folder.
Times tables will be tested on a Tuesday and new times tables will be sent home on a Friday. (Please return the sheet by the following Friday).
If you have any questions, please ask!
At the beginning of term pupils will complete a Star test, where they have to read various questions and choose the correct answer. This allows us to to see where the children are with their reading and comprehension skills.
The assessment will give us an update of the zone of proximal development of each pupil's reading skills . For example; 1.6 - 2.6. You may find that the children bring home books that might seem a little easy for them but we have to start the children at the lowest end of the zone. Once your child has read their book and feels ready to answer questions about it's content, they will be able to take a quiz in school which will then assess their reading and understanding of what they have read. If the children score 90% or more, they will move to the next level. The children will get a chance to quiz every day so you will find that the children move up levels quite quickly.
If you have any queries about this then please don't hesitate to contact us.
