Key Stage 1 Reading

Following the success of the daily maths interim assessment sheets and maths moderation tests and also after working with the awesome John Murray (check out his website here and his Twitter feed – @ReadingExplorer), I have started to put together some reading comprehensions for Year 2.  These will be short texts (less than 100 words) with some anchoring questions to get the children thinking about the text before even encountering it; some questions about the gist of the text; some literal questions and some deductive and inferential questions about the text.

You can download them here and I will be adding to this, hopefully on a weekly basis.

Please let me know what you think of them and any improvements that could be made in the comments section.

*UPDATE 01* New reading comprehension added – The Darkness

Thanks for reading.


Maths Interim Assessment Sheets



If you, like me, are scrambling to gather evidence to show that your kids in your Year 2 class hit points in the interim framework, you might be using some of the interim assessment framework points as areas to teach.

I have made some sheets based on the exemplification materials for the interim assessment framework which you can download here.

These are different from the weekly checks which my class have been working on and I’ll be updating this folder each week with more work.

I don’t claim that these are the best work I have ever done, but they will help me collect evidence for moderation.  If they help save you a few minutes, please feel free to use and share.



Edit: The complete set for all 16 points of the interim assessment framework for maths are now in the folder for downloading.
