The project has now been running for 18 months and the fourth round of assessments will be completed on the 4th December. We will have the results from this round early in the new year. It is amazing to see the knowledge and skills children have acquired in such a short time at school!
Teachers in the project have expressed interest in meeting to discuss current assessment tools for New entrant/Year 1 children, and to evaluate other tools that might be useful. The first meeting to discuss this will be on Friday 11 December, with further meetings scheduled early in 2016. Our goal is to work together to find the most useful assessment tools available, to track progress in the first year at school.
