Homework 

Design you ideal set for our play (if we had a theatre and could buy anything we wanted).

It must be physically possible and practical to use. (You can’t completely rebuild it half way through the play and the actors must be able to get on and off stage quickly.)

Think about:

How will you change the settings – Kansas, Munchkin Land, Forest, Poppy Field, WWW castle, Oz

Where will the characters enter/exit (you can have high and low doors including trapdoors)

How will you create atmosphere?

Key Stage 2 Teacher Assessment Framework

When the new National Curriculum was introduced, the expected standards for each year group was raised. This means that each year the expectations for the children reaching the end of a key stage will rise year on year. At the end of each key stage your child's class teacher will use the Teacher Assessment Framework (TAFs) to assess each child. Whereas in the past your child would need to have met most of the criteria, your child will now have to have meet each of the statements to be assessed as having met the expected standard.

In Year 6, the children will also sit their SATs, in Reading; Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar; and Maths with their writing being assessed over the year.

Please follow the link below to view the TAFs for KS2.
