YEAR 5: Transition work
17 June 2020 (by Danielle Norton (Office))
I have set up some important transition work that I would like completing over the next 3 days.
Good Morning Giraffes!
This is Mr Walmsley here – as part of your transition to Year 6 I have asked Mrs Marshall and Mrs Hobot if I can take over your Seesaw for the next three days because on Monday I will be teaching my Year 6 children, and will only be able to look at your work at the end of the day.
With that in mind, I would like you to complete some work for me ready for September. This work will help me decide which skills I will need to teach next year and who will be working in the booster groups.
PLEASE DO NOT PANIC WHEN YOU SEE FIVE ACTIVITIES TODAY - MOST ARE SHORT!
Today you have the following and it may be best to complete the work in this order:
- Reading Assessment (30 minutes)
- Arithmetic Assessment (25 minutes)
- SPAG Assessment (15 minutes)
- Maths Assessment (15 minutes)
- Art activity (take as long as you like because I want to display them in the classroom)
DO NOT WORRY if you can't answer all of the questions; I do not mind what your score is as long as you have tried your best. If you are unsure, leave it blank.
If you have help or support, please tell me. The important thing with assessment for learning is that you are open and honest with me and I can then support you in as many areas as you require. If you have a sensible guess, please put the letter 'g' on the page. This tells me that you have some idea but a bit of extra support may help you.
Thank you for all your hard work and effort this week. I am really pleased with everything you have done.
I look forward to seeing your work today.
