PLEASE NOTE THAT THE DATES FOR THIS TRAINING HAVE NOW MOVED TO WEDNESDAY 10TH FEBRUARY AND WEDNESDAY 24TH MARCH 2021.
In the guidance published by the DfE in January 2021: ‘Restricting attendance during the national lockdown: schools’, page 55 states:
‘We know that schools will continue to use assessment during the summer term to inform teaching, to enable them to give information to parents on their child’s attainment in their annual report and to support transition to secondary school. We strongly encourage schools to do this, using past test papers if they wish.’
Although we know that SATs for KS2 will not take place as normal in May of 2021, there will still be a place for accurate teacher assessment in the summer term.
With this in mind, the dates for this training and the focus areas for the webinars have been adjusted, to meet the changes and challenges for this year.
Grappling with the aims and content within the Upper Key Stage 2 (UKS2) curriculum, it is increasingly important to understand what age-related expectations should look like. Aimed at teachers working with Year 6 pupils, and taking into account the most up to date guidance, this course will support practitioners with strategies, practical ideas and resources that can be used to enable pupils to secure age-related learning by the end of the UKS2 phase.
By providing exemplifications of possible sequences of learning, teachers will develop further familiarity with the Year 6 content while developing a sequence to teach back in their own classroom tailored to suit the needs of their pupils.
This course will comprise of live webinars and pre-recorded modules. Once booked onto the course, delegates will:
• Be invited to a live webinar session on Wednesday 10th February from 2pm - 3pm.
• Watch pre-recorded materials
• Return for a second webinar on Wednesday 24th March from 2pm – 3:30pm
