where shall i start?

  1. hi
    I've got a meet and greet session with a 10 year old pupil I might be tutoring later in the week. I was going to do the I can statements as I thought that was a good idea, let him see them and tick what he thinks he can do so I can use this to plan for the paid sessions.
    The dad said he's at 10+ level, I assuming that means he's 10 but I am not sure if he is Year 5 or Year 6. What level should I start my I can statements on? What level are they expected to be at by the end of Year 5 and the end of Year 6?
    Also, the tutoring is for maths and literacy. There are so many LO's for each area, should I just choose a couple from each one?

  3. Hi Cleocleo
    For a similar aged student, I started with the NC level 3 statements, then had a second sheet with the NC level 4 statements (only the ones that are new for level 4), and an extension sheet with NC level 5 statements (only the ones that are new for level 5). This resulted in about 20 statements on each sheet (for just the Maths ones).
    I worked on the assumption that by the end of KS2 an average student is approx level 4, and so in Y5 might be a bit lower - on the other hand, the parent seems to suggest brighter than average....
    I hope this helps.
    Liz
