This page and the links below share ideas which I have prepared to help me encourage the children in my class to
monitor and improve their learning in literacy. In particular, these resources help me to develop
self assessment sheets, Records of Achievement and "success criteria" charts for the pupils to use in literacy lessons.
These resources were created to facilitate my work as a junior school teacher and are intended to help
support teachers in:
communicating the objectives of units of work to the children
encouraging the children to reflect upon their learning
helping the children record their achievements,
helping the children identify areas of strength and areas in which improvement might be necessary.
undertaking group and individual target setting
These recources can therefore make a valuable contribution to a school's approach to Assessment for Learning.
The source sheets are NOT intended for use by the children "as seen". Rather, it is expected that the class teacher
will select relevant sections only, adapting and rearranging elements to match the age and abilities of the pupils,
to produce bespoke sheets for their particular class or even for groups or individuals.
The Primary Framework for Literacy Assessment for Learning Source Sheets
(supporting Records of Achievement, pupil self-assessment and individual target setting)
Click the following links to download the Source Sheets in RTF format. The documents will open
in most word processor applications.
For narrative writing, there are also Pupil Target/Self-Assessment sheets for each year group. These are intended
to encourage self assessment and facilitate the setting of targets closely related to the scheme of work
and objectives defined in the Renewed Framework for Literacy. These are in PDF format.
