As a whole school we are developing a clear target setting system for all children. This is linked with half termly assessments throughout school and a clear tracking system. I am finding it hard to follow what the rest of the school are doing and would like to develop a simple target system for reception that is not as in depth as the rest of the school. The rest of the school set targets in numeracy, literacy and science. They have bookmarks in the childrens books stating their targets, have target sheets stuck in their books, have the targets displayed in the classroom and send target booklets home for parents. These targets are reviewed and changed, where necessary, every half term. The work is obviously marked to these targets. I feel this is too much for a reception class but nethertheless I am expected to do this. I would be interested to find out what other reception teachers do with regards targets and how they are displayed, shared with parents etc.
