Year 2 writing cluster meeting (Spring 2) - Octavo Training Room | Octavo Partnership

Course Date

02 Mar 2020 16:00 – 17:30

Overview

Writing cluster meetings support Year 2 teachers to develop their own teacher assessment judgements and to be able to articulate these through professional diialogue.They provide an opportunity for teachers to standardise their judgements for writing against the teacher assessment framework (using nationally available resources) and to consider their pupils’ writing in relation to these standards.
Meetings in the spring term will focus on the following standards: WTS and EXS..

The sessions give Year 2 teachers the opportunity to learn about national messages from STA about statutory writing assessments at the end of KS1.

Working in pairs and small groups, teachers will consider different aspects of the TAF and the evidence in their own pupils’ writing. Through dialogue, they will establish a clear understanding of the statutory expectations and share the implications for teaching and learning in their classrooms.

This session is intended to:
• support teachers to have a clear understanding of statutory assessment arrangements for writing at the end of KS1
• support teachers in understanding the KS1 teacher assessment standards for writing
