Students are being tested on the following areas of abilities:
Mathematics- All 3 strands (Number and Algebra, Measurement, Statistics and Probablity)
Acer Testing- ICT use on areas of learning
Students will also undergo individual one on one sight word recognition and reading tests with our education assistants.
Our groupings of spelling and reading groups will depend on these results. We like to be extra thorough in our testing and this can be a lengthy process with the younger years to carry out.
All groupings, testing and marking aims to be finished in week 4-5.
Our homework and class routines are dependent on these results. While we wait to finish these, we will be training the students in spelling activities, mental maths and encouraging reading at home with students current reading levels.
All students will be encouraged to complete the same spelling lists and homework tasks for the first few weeks.
Students who are new to the school will undergo further testing for reading results.
