Transcript of GPS INSET

Grammar, Punctuation & Spelling (GPS)
The 2014 Curriculum and introduction of KS1 GPS SATS tests will impact on the planning and teaching of GPS.
The new GPS SATS tests
Newly formatted SATS tests will be introduced for reading, maths and GPS this academic year.
Planning & Coverage
Grammar, punctuation and spelling need to be taught and modeled daily and explicitly to ensure coverage.
GPS in the learning environment
Child-generated prompts:
Teaching GPS
GPS activities should be quick, fun and exploratory.
1. Introduction
2. The new GPS SATS tests
3. Planning & coverage
4. Teaching GPS
6. Assessing GPS
This is a good thing!
Teachers need an idea of what to teach and how to teach it.
Tests will not be leveled, but the Government will used a 'scaled score' system. They say:
"We can’t give full information about what the scale will look like yet. We do know the scale will have a lower end point below 100 and an upper end point above 100. Once we have set the national standard we will use a statistical technique called ‘scaling’ to transform the raw score into a scaled score. We will publish this after the first tests have been administered."
Hmmm... Oh well! Let's have a go!
Spelling needs to be taught and modeled in literacy lessons as well as in daily phonics sessions, because of new National Curriculum expectations, detailed in Appendix 1 of the Curriculum.
But what do we need to teach!?
Planning & Coverage
Titles should detail the learning intention. ('
I am learning to use adverbs for information
' rather than '
I am learning to write an information text
5. GPS in the learning environment
Each literacy lesson should focus on one or two of these objectives.
Children will be assessed based on their depth of understanding for each of the objectives.
Children working below year group entry level working on the previous year's objectives where possible/relevant.
When an objective is planned, you can highlight it to show coverage.
Give children ownership of their learning environment.
Are relevant and up-to-date.
Can be quickly produced and added to a Writers' Toolkit display or Working Wall during a lesson.
Learning objectives should be relevant to the current piece of writing.
Objectives should be demonstrated and modelled in shared-writing following activities.
Children should always be given opportunities to have a go.
