Cramming at six is a disgrace
One longer task is sufficient to provide a spot-check to back up teacher assessments Quite a few children did not perform to their normal standard even though I introduced the tests as sensitively as I could. This is verified by the county assessment moderator.
There was also a far greater loss in teaching time than previous years. I was told teachers altered their programme of literacy to cover work again before the writing task. This is teaching to the test - at six and seven years old that is a disgrace.
