Hi all I'm new to KS2 (teaching year 3/4 in Sept) and would appreciate some advice on assessment. My school is very keen on sub-levels and so I've been trying to get my head round year 3/4 expectations early. I <u>know</u> that each child is different and I <u>do</u> teach to stages not ages, however my school still expects regular sub-level reports. This is my understanding of "national expectations": Year 1 = national expectation 1b (broadly within level 1) Year 2 = national expectation 2b (broadly within level 2) Year 3 = national expectation 2a/3c (expectation doesn't seem much higher than Y2 ??) Year 4 = national expectation 3c/3b (expectation doesn't seem much higher than Y3 ??) Year 5 = national expectation 3a/4c (doesn't seem much higher than what is taught in Y3/4??) Year 6 = national expectation 4c/4b So, do the levels broaden out in years 3/4? Or is there a lot more to consolidate/teach across KS2 generally? It sounds a daft question but having never taught KS2 before I just assumed that level 3 was Y3, level 4 was Y4, level 5 was Y5 and level 6 Y6!! I then quickly remembered that level 6 is secondary!! Please help me over my blond moment??!!
