Year 2 - Reading - Sequencing Activities - SATs style

(0)
These resources are intended to support children with the sequencing style questions encountered in the KS1 SATs tests. There are 6 original stories that the children read and then number the sentences to place them in the correct order. These questions are often ones that cause the children difficulty so these sheets will allow them to practice this skill in a fun way.

Year 2 - KS1 - Teacher Assessment Framework - Reading Evidence Sheet -TAF

(0)
These activities are designed to provide evidence for Teacher Assessment of the KS1 Reading Curriculum. Resouces provide an activity for some objective on the Teacher Assessment Framework where evidence needs to be provided. These are Working At - 7 and Greater Depth 1, 2 and 3. There are 3 variations for each objective to enable a number of pieces of evidence to be collected. All are labelled to make record keeping easier. There is a record sheet which teachers can complete but also give a fun element for children to colour upon completion. These sheets provide a great evidence log for moderation and the children love working on their ‘log jobs’. All stories are original and feature situations that the children will be able to relate to, enabling them to successfully draw inferences from the text or predict what might happen next. These resources link perfectly with my TAF Evidence Sheets for KS1 Maths.
