Code: 19ENG/044P Key Stage 2 Reading Fluency Project (EVENT FULL)

The 2016 KS2 reading paper presented a greater degree of challenge to young readers, and although the 2017 and 18 tests were generally regarded as being more accessible, they still proved challenging for a significant number of our Year 6 pupils. We recognise from our work in schools that many pupils found the texts used for the test hard to access, challenging to comprehend, and demanding in terms of the reading stamina required to get through them in the time available. With this in mind, schools will need to consider how to equip their pupils for this increased challenge so that they are able to tackle the 2020 test with confidence.

This project has been designed to address this issue, offering strategies that will have a swift and powerful impact on pupils’ reading achievement in a short space of time. Following successful implementation of the project, pupils in Year 6 will be on an improved trajectory towards EXS at the end of KS2; have a more positive relationship with books; be more enthusiastic, confident readers with an increased understanding and engagement with texts.

The project will focus predominantly on the need to improve pupils’ reading fluency of complex texts. The past few years have seen increased reference to the need to develop fluency in reading. The DFE exemplification materials and KS2 test papers highlighted heightened expectations around swift comprehensive reading. A lack of fluency impacts upon understanding, motivation, confidence and rates of progress. Research has shown that specific instruction around fluency enables pupils to free up cognitive space which can be directed more effectively towards other activities “… such as comprehension, analysis, elaboration and deep understanding.” [Hattie 2014]

Code: 19ASS/030P New to Year 6 assessment

This course is for teachers who are new to, or returning to, teaching in Year 6.

We will explore the statutory requirements for assessing pupil’s attainment in the core subjects at Key Stage 2 this year and consider strategies for supporting pupils in their learning journey towards achieving the expected standards.

We will also consider how the Herts for Learning assessment resources, including the HfL writing year group ‘TAFs’, can help delegates to track pupils’ progress and support their planning and teaching throughout the year. (These materials are non-statutory and some schools may have adopted a different approach to assessment. The course will still be relevant even if that is the case.)
