Assessing in English - reading, writing and S&L
Child speak targets
I trimmed, backed these onto coloured card then laminated them. I did one for each child based on their next steps (if a child was a 2a, I gave them the card with 3c on one side and 3b on the other.
Child speak levels for reading are always displayed in my reading area or by a book case in the classroom.
Individual target cards
At Roydon Primary we have progress books and we level children's writing every term. After their first piece, I give them two targets (KS2) to work on. They write them on a card, then self assess during class work.
Like wise for reading, they have their own personal target, which they stick in their reading records.
Update: As a new(ish) KS1 teacher I have created a card with one target to master. These can be adapted as necessary.
Use success criteria so that the children know exactly how to be successful and can assess their work themselves. Adapt the following to fit your learning outcomes. There are examples here for using dialogue, writing an information book, an animal fact sheet for year 2, a healthy lunch competition that includes a peer assessment part and success criteria for an explanation booklet for creating animations.
Try these to help you level children's writing, or these for children to self assess. They were adapted from those created by Ros Wilson and shared by Becki Jennings - another Norfolk AST.
Using children to assess each other's work can be highly beneficial. Careful pairing is essential and the children must be taught how to be an effective response partner. Success criteria can also be used to support this.
Marking written work
I have found these records from Devon learning team to be really helpful.
