In the Primary school teachers use continuous, on-going assessments of and for learning throughout the year. The assessments are varied and provide multiple opportunities for students to demonstrate learning. Together this information is used to support the child’s learning, inform teachers of next learning steps and is also used to make a judgement on an overall grade for reporting 3 times a year.
“Because understanding develops as a result of on-going inquiry and rethinking, the assessment of understanding should be thought of in terms of a collection of evidence over time instead of an event…..” (Fisher and Frey quoting Wiggins and McTighe 6)
If you have any concerns or questions please make a time to come and talk with us.
Here are some Math at Home suggestions.
A Middle school student has been working on an Internet Safety presentation supporting awareness amongst students. Some of the year 6 classes had the chance of being present in this presentation. This session is very beneficial as we know this has been an ongoing issue some students faced this year and will continue to be exposed too in the future.
