Literacy Assessment in Year 2
Longfield Primary School Literacy Assessmentin Year 2 What do we assess? Speaking and listening. Writing Reading Speaking and Listening
Not assessed through a task or test. On-going teacher assessment through observation. Level 1, 2 or 3 will be reported to parents at the end of the year. level 2 is the expected level of attainment for children at the end of Year 2.Level 3 is above average. What are we looking for? How well do children listen to teachers and other pupils and how do they respond? Can they answer questions? Can they explain what someone else has said? Can they report back on a group discussion? How can Parents and Carers help?
Give children opportunities to talk to you about what they do and see. Ask them open-ended questions and listen to the answers.(Questions beginning with why?, how?, and what do you think?) Encourage them to ask you questions. Writing Speaking and listening supports writing.
The more a child can speak using a wide range of vocabulary, the better their writing, because they will use the words they know and understand. Assessment process for writing
Statutory tasks only one part of process. Teachers look at a whole range of childs work throughout the year. Teacher assessment level given for writing at the end of the year including performance in the statutory tasks, not separately. Tasks for writing Shorter task 30 minutes Longer task 45 minutes
