Primary Assessment for Learning - Speaking and Listening: Year 2



Year 2 pupils at Whitechurch First School are building on their peer and self assessment skills acquired in Year 1.

A visit from The Queen, in the form of their class teacher hot seating in the classroom, provides them with inspiration for their own presentations and writing tasks throughout the course of the day.

The aim of hot seating is to get the children asking high level questions to inform their own speaking and listening.

The children present a piece of formal writing, reading from the front of the class, which the rest of the class then peer assess.

Class teacher Anna Bruck assesses the pupils' use of technical language, whilst a teaching assistant facilitates a game to encourage both speaking and listening skills with a child learning English as an additional language.
