Spring 2014 Clusters




Year 4/5

This year the focus of these clusters will be the assessment of Reading and Writing.

To get the maximum benefit from the cluster, it is important that you bring to the session some appropriate evidence of children’s attainment.

Please select 2 children, for each of reading and writing, whose levels of attainment will be discussed at the moderation cluster.  You can choose the same 2 children for both subject areas, or different children, as you wish.  Please choose pupils working at different levels. You may wish to select pupils that you find particularly interesting or difficult to assess.
