Because of the Key Stage 1 assessments, teaching Year 2 can seem daunting. This half day course is an early chance for teachers new to Year 2 to prepare for the year ahead. We will explore the format of the tests and assessments, and the domains that they are attempting to assess. We will also explore messages from last year’s tests. Teachers will leave with a range of practical strategies and a full understanding of how to prepare pupils for this whilst still retaining a creative classroom where pupils thoroughly enjoy learning.

During the session course participants will:

  • To become familiar with the reading, maths and writing statutory assessments at the end of KS1
  • To understand how to prepare pupils for these
  • To know a range of practical approaches to teaching year 2 successfully
