Fruit_ bat i know it is so unfair, I feel sick at the thought. I am doing extra literacy session every afternoon after easter! I should be used to this by now but last year we had a strong cohort and so it makes this years look even worse. Last year the Y1 teacher was told it was fine if they are on p scales and then this year suddenly they need to make at least 3 sublevels to be broadly in line. A few of the chn have very low attendance and are constantly playing catch up. I have said some chn will be 2c but I really dont think that a child who does not use any finger spaces or full stops can be a L2, plus the majority of work cannot be read without mediation. I know the 100 word minimum was a Ros Wilson criteria but our school has always used this as a bench mark. The top groups work great when an adult is there to prompt them constantly but none of their work is of significant length. If they cant write at length and consistently use punctuation then they are not a secure 2.
