Homework doing your head in? Read wish-I'd-known tips from other parents on Mumsnet's Education pages.
We have had an appalling communication from school regarding individual child English targets. It is utter gobbledegook to us. It states DD targets are;I usually spell high frequency words correctly (A13)I am working towards making sentences by joining simple clauses together (A2)I usually use full stops and capital letters correctly (B5)What do the numbers mean? These are obviously statements from something. Can anyone help me understand it?
I'm a year 1 teacher and I don't know what the number/letter combos allude to.But:High frequency words = there's a list, 100 first ones. Common words that they'll be using in their reading and writing a lot. Lots of lists online if you google it.Joining simple clauses together eg: "There is a tree. It has green leaves." would change to "There is a tree and it has green leaves." Full stops and capital letters pretty self explanatory.Those are all standard things for year 1 to be working towards. I imagine that the teacher has gotten them from whatever form of assessment they use at your child's school.
