Post-COVID KS2 English Expectations (Recovery Curriculum)

Post-COVID KS2 English Expectations (Recovery Curriculum)

4 Resources
Aimed to ensure no child is left behind, these recovery curriculum expectations grids outline key, end-of-year expectations for Key Stage 2 in line with the National Curriculum strands for English. In each document, the previous year’s expectations are included in the left-hand column and act as prerequisites to tick off before a child moves on to the current year’s expectations. This acts as a net to catch any gaps that may have manifested due to the time off in lockdown during the academic year of 2019-2020. How do I use this product? I will be sticking these into the back of the children’s books and ticking them off when completed. They could also be assigned to a child digitally to save on paper and needless touching of joint resources. Alternatively, these could be used holistically for an entire class, or for emerging, expected & exceeding groups. In each product (separated by year group), you get access to: PDF versions of the A4 tables National Curriculum strands are referenced for each expectation .docx Word Document versions of the A4 tables to edit to address particular needs or school-wide focuses 1 font to edit Word documents with
