Assessment
Westminster Briefing (December 2013):
• Levels will be removed and not replaced, because
–Parents don’t understand.
–Teachers worry about levels not what children can do.
•
•
•
•
Schools should have more freedom to decide
Assessment should check what pupils have learned and are on track to meet expectations.
Schools must report regularly to parents
Decile and Progression as a proposed scale score system has not met with positive
feedback (NAHT) and is likely to not be implemented.
• OFSTED say that your tracking system must show progression. However, schools can
choose whether to retain the level system or adopt own system. (Must consider consistency in
clusters and with secondary schools.)
•January 2014 –examples of how you could report assessment will be provided by DFE.

Session 4:
Science Talk
Upper key stage 2
Expectations-spoken language
The national curriculum for science reflects the importance of spoken
language in pupils’ development across the whole curriculum –
cognitively, socially and linguistically. The quality and variety of
language that pupils hear and speak are key factors in developing
their scientific vocabulary and articulating scientific concepts clearly
and precisely. They must be assisted in making their thinking clear,
both to themselves and others, and teachers should ensure that pupils
build secure foundations by using discussion to probe and remedy
their misconceptions.
Key Stage 1:
Pupils should read and spell scientific vocabulary at a level consistent
with their increasing word reading and spelling knowledge at key
stage 1.
Y3/4:
Pupils should read and spell scientific vocabulary correctly and with
confidence, using their growing word reading and spelling knowledge.
Y5/6:
Pupils should read, spell and pronounce scientific vocabulary correctly.
Working as a table,
go through the curriculum for the
Year group you have been
given. Write in the table any key
vocabulary that you feel
children need to know.
Concept Cartoons…
-Bingo
-Blockbusters
-‘I have……, what am I?’
