Got our English back today. Reading wasn't too bad but in comparison to previous years we're a bit below what we normally get. Still above what they were predicted based on KS1 results but that never seems to be enough to satisfy the SIP! Makes me feel rubbish to be honest - as if us teachers and the kids don't work hard enough as it is! Writing is another matter... Haven't delved into them but there seem to be a lot more level 3s than predicted. Of those, there are a fair few who have scored 24 or 23. Boundary doesn't ever seem to go below 25 for level 4 so going to be having a thorough look through those papers! Feeling quite demoralised as the longer I am in yr 6, the more it just seems about adding numbers up rather than looking at how far each child has come - which is incredibly far in so many cases!!! *Humph.* A whole year of hard work shot down in a few hours.
