Code: ASS/20/462/P Assessment moderation cluster for teachers in Years 5 and 6: cluster 10 - Bushey and Watford

The session will provide an excellent opportunity for teachers to work together with colleagues across schools, to help to build a consistent understanding of the national curriculum standards and year group expectations. We will also use the sessions to promote good practice in building powerful assessment and formative feedback opportunities into everyday learning in order to plug gaps, build on existing learning and ensure progression in reading and writing skills.

It is essential that delegates bring along examples of pupils' work from their class. We will provide suggested assessment tasks for both reading and writing for teachers to use with the pupils in advance of the sessions.
