SPARK Year 4 Writing Remote Judging Session Summer Term (Cancelled)

The removal of national curriculum levels has afforded schools great freedom to assess pupils using their chosen methodology, beyond the statutory assessment points. However, with this freedom comes the anxiety about pupil progress, which is particularly felt across KS2. Following a successful trial during the spring term we are pleased to offer a further summer term Year 4 writing cluster meeting. These meetings aim to develop consistency of judgement in teacher assessment and to provide a benchmark for writing midway through KS2.

This session is for teachers who have already used compara ...

SPARK Year 2 Science Moderation

The purpose of Year 2 Science Moderation is to ensure that an agreement on standards of teacher assessment can be reached. It gives teachers confidence that their assessments are accurate and consistent with the national picture. The discussion focuses on how teachers reached their judgements, and offers them an opportunity to demonstrate their understanding of standards by focusing on a small number of individual children and their work. Moderation is designed as a supportive process. The emphasis is on the development of the skills of the practitioner and their confidence in assessing childr ...

Essential Mathematics Knowledge for Teaching Assistants and Learning Support Assistants

In 2018 the Education Endowment Foundation produced a Guidance Report designed to help provide practical evidence-based guidance to help schools make the best use of teaching assistants. Drawing on evidence, the EEF revealed that the “typical deployment and use of TAs*, under everyday conditions, is not leading to improvements in academic outcomes”. However, EEF trials have demonstrated that, when they are well-trained and used in structured settings with high-quality support and training, TAs can make a noticeable positive impact on pupil learning.

Teaching assistants who regularly support ...

Problem Solving & Reasoning in KS1

Two of the three aims of the National Curriculum in Mathematics (DfE, July 2014) for all pupils from EYFS to KS5 are:
• reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language;
• can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.

In KS1, pupils are beginning to develop their problem solv ...
