I was wondering if anyone could help? I'm going in to Year 1/2 next year again. I started off in there in my first year of teaching and after three years in Year 3 I'm back. When I was last in there I used level descriptors to level each child using a 'best fit' model. It was very time consuming. In the school at the moment from Year 2 up to Year 6 we use optional QCA test papers and SATs to find levels for each child. In the Foundation Stage we use Early Years profiles. Year 1 seems to be a gap! We're slooooooooooowly dipping in to APP but I'm nowhere near confident enough to use it to assess a whole class. What do other people use to assess lit and num in Year 1?
