Spelling tests

Writing samples

Standardised reading assessments.

The kids.

This week the children in my class with select a photo from our class photo that best represents them and write a story ‘what I want my teacher to know about me…’

Instead of numbers and scores, why not make those first impressions for new kids be driven by the kids rather than their numbers?
