    What do you think we will be working with this year?

    SPaG likely to go up
    Reading down
    Maths to stay the same?

    Here’s hoping there will be no big hike in requirements!

    Hmm...I'm going to go with:

    GPS - up
    Reading - stay the same
    Maths - stay the same.

    I would love Reading to go down but I don't think they'll be that kind!

    SPAG - up
    Maths - much the same give or take a mark or two.
    Reading - down a mark or two.

    I'd go with:
    SPAG - up
    Reading - stay the same
    Maths - stay the same (worried that it may be a mark or two up, though)

    Interesting isn't it that only a few years ago, a score of 18/50 on the reading test was enough to get a level 4 and now 28/50 is needed for a scaled score of 100.

    And on a much easier test too - much simpler vocabulary and more multiple choice questions. Not that we should go back to that low expectation, but the ones now seem to have swung the other way.

    SPAG up 3 or 4
    Maths down but not by much 1 or 2
    Reading down 1 or 2

    There’s a chance of an election soon - they need good headlines.

    Yes, I suppose it could come down to politics and elections. Not about how well they have done but how well ‘the powers that be’ want it to appear they have done. ‘They’ being the kids or politicians (or teachers if blame is required)
