Code: ASS/19/516/P Assessment moderation cluster for teachers of Year 2: Cluster 12 – Baldock, Letchworth and Royston

This year, the focus of this moderation session will be reading and writing. The session will provide an excellent opportunity for Year 2 teachers to work together to explore the accuracy of their assessment judgements and achieve greater consistency in standards. Teachers will be supported in considering how secure their pupils are in their learning so far, and how well on track they are for the end of Key Stage 1 standards.

It is essential that delegates bring along examples of pupils' work from their class. We will provide a suggested reading assessment task for teachers to use with the pupils in advance of the sessions. In January, information will be sent to delegates and also uploaded to the grid at: http://www.thegrid.org.uk/learning/assessment/ks1/moderationclusters.shtml

Code: MAT/19/317/P Enabling teaching assistants to support and develop pupils’ resilience and reasoning in mathematics - afternoon session

Delegates will leave with a range of practical strategies that they can use to:
• support problem-solving
• teach pupils to sustain their focus when asked to think for themselves
• improve pupil’s confidence and understanding of fractions.

The local cluster training is repeated in morning and afternoon sessions so as many TAs as possible can benefit.
