National Reading and Numeracy Tests


Children in Years 2 to 9 now take national tests in reading and numeracy each summer. It is really important that your child is in school to take the tests.



The reading tests are made up of short questions based on two or more texts. Some of the questions check how well the text has been understood, others aim to find out if children are able to make judgements about what they are reading.



There are two kinds of numeracy tests.

  1. The procedural test measures skills in number, measuring and data skills.

  2. The reasoning test measures how well children can use what they know to solve everyday problems.

This term our topic is Victorians. This is a History based topic where we will be looking at what life was like during Victorian times, particularly for the children. What were their schools like? Did all children actually go to school? How were the children treated? So many questions that we need to answer.

Just a few snaps of our trip to St. Fagans, where we learnt lots of new facts about the Victorians and even participated in a Victorian day school lesson. Mr McLeod took to the part very well!
