AAArrrgggghhhh!!! How is it May already???? How??? Don't tell me I shouldn't be teaching test strategies to 7 year olds, I KNOW! But I have recent acquired some responsibility for a class who, despite my best efforts, have not yet seen a reading comprehension (other than the practice one where mostly they just sat and cried apparently!) nor know how to write a riddle! Nor have they seen the testbase maths questions that should have been used in some plenaries all year. And we are being moderated on the 25th and there is no reliable teacher assessment for the class at all. And yes I am in a flap! Soooo, to ensure they don't just sit and cry all the way through the compulsory tests, they need to learn that tests aren't scary and can actually be great. Also they need knowledge and confidence in knowing what's what. My class will benefit from the practice/suffer the same timetable just because they'll have to! Anyway, excuses over, can anyone experienced, and confident that they know what's what and how to interpret the rules, have a look at my timetable to let me know if it is ok? I know it is a big favour and I'm probably being daft...but hey ho. Tuesday (8th) Recap/teach riddle writing Thursday Teach reading comp. skills from testbase (short lesson) Friday Finish magic object story writing Monday (14th) Paired comprehension work, Level 2 Tuesday Teacher to teach level 3 comp, level 2 independent Wednesday Teacher to edit comp work with level 2, level 3 independent Thursday Short writing test (riddle) Friday Long writing test (story) Monday (21st) Reading test (One before and one after break) Tuesday Spelling test I am teaching the riddle and story in the week before doing the test, but not within a week. Is that allowed? I can't see how to do it otherwise because I'll need the weekend to do the marking. Maths is fine, am confident with that. Thank you.
