Code: MAT/19/7/P Securing greater depth in Year 2 (mathematics and English)

This one-day course will focus on what ‘working at greater depth’ in Year 2 could look like for both English and mathematics. We will identify the aspects of the curriculum which need to be secured in order to assess a child as working at greater depth and explore samples of work which might exemplify this.

Teachers are asked to bring a small selection of English and mathematics work for a child whom they feel could be considered as working at greater depth, or as ‘on track’ to achieve this standard. These will be used to support the discussions over the day and for English at least, should include work from across the curriculum.

Looking ahead to the teacher assessment deadline, we will discuss how time can be used most effectively to support pupils to secure and demonstrate the learning required. We will draw upon the Teacher Assessment Framework (TAF) for Year 2 and the exemplifications materials which indicated a child was working at greater depth, as well as other materials. These will be used to help delegates form their own judgements for pupils they work with and identify steps to move them on further.
