Reading paper mark scheme

Discussion in 'Primary' started by redladybird, May 7, 2010.

  1. Does anyone have a copy of the teacher mark scheme for the Year 4 reading paper 'In touch with Nature' ? I think it is from 1999? I have managed to find the levels but despite searching can not locate a mark book. Any help would be fantastic.
    Thanks very much

    b Focus of question: inferring character’s feelings

    Yes, Carla did feel better because Grandad told her she would follow her father’s footsteps and that she was just like him.
    I think she felt a bit better because her Grandad told her that everyone is good at something but Grandad was far away and couldn’t change what it was like at school

    Yes, because her Dad is able to make wonderful things now.
    No, because her Dad hated school and so did Carla.
    Yes, because everyone can do something well.
    Just remember that.

    Up to 2 marks

    muddy and grey
    1 mark

    10 Focus of question: explaining imagery

    the whiteness of the snow resembling the pages of a book
    the footprints resembling the words/telling the story of the night before.</font>

    it tells you the whole story of the night before because you can read the words of the animal footprints
    because the words are the prints in the snow, which looks as white as paper in a book

    because of the snow the woods are as white as anything and a book is white too
    because it tells you a story of the night before, if you know how to read it

    because the whiteness of the woods is like the pages of a book

    Up to 2 marks

    For example:
    there are lots of animals in the country but none in the city
    the snow in the country is lovely but the snow in the city is slushy
    the city is very dirty but the countryside is clean and quiet
    the difference is that you could see the animal footprints in the countryside as there is nobody there but so many people use the streets in the city that you can't see the snow

    the country is quieter and less busy the city is very noisy and dirty

    the country is magical in the snow and the city is just muddy and grey
    Up to 2 marks

    she was upset that he may not love her any more lonely and sad that he'd forgotten her
    it tells you that she was feeling worried because he might have died
    she was worried/concerned/anxious
    I think she wrote this because she didn't think it was fair that he hadn't written back and she didn't know what had happened to him

    she was sad
    1 mark

    For example:
    it shows that Grandad must care a lot about Carla because he doesn't want her to worry about him even when he is ill he knows she worries about him when he doesn't write and he wants to make her feel better

    <font face="Times New Roman">he loves her/he doesn&rsquo;t want her to worry (without an explanation)</font> 1 mark

    14 a Focus of question: retrieval of detail

    Up to 2 marks

    b Focus of question: inferring feelings and motivation

    because they missed each other and wanted to share things so that they felt closer
    because they love each other and they both understand each other and it made them feel closer to each other
    they did it because they were both so special to each other and so were the secrets they shared

    because they love/trust each other
    because they were both lonely and needed to share them with someone
    because they cared so much about each other
    Up to 2 marks

    15 a Focus of question: overview of song and story

    1 mark

    b Focus of question: understanding of theme

    because some of the things in the song match with things that happen in Carla's and Grandad's life
    it makes you understand it better because events hat happen in the story are first of all given in he song

    because the song was related to events in the story
    because the song says even for a secret and Grandad and Carla shared their secrets
    when Carla&rsquo;s baby brother was born her Grandad saw four magpies - Four for a Boy
    1 mark

    16 Focus of question: inferring characters&rsquo; feelings

    keep in touch, share news, tell secrets, ask and answer each other questions (as if in conversation), share their thoughts and feelings.

    because they could share their secrets and talk about the things that were happening in their lives
    the letters made them feel close because they wrote emotional things and asked questions about lots of things
    the letters let Carla and her Grandad know what each other was doing and let them share secrets as if they were living next to each other

    they can tell each other secrets
    they can ask each other what&rsquo;s been happening
    Up to 2 marks

    it helps you to see events from two points of view
    it shows you that the characters don't understand each other
    it persuades you to agree with the characters
