Unfortunately I had to cut short my chat with dd's teacher as got a call to say ds has chickenpox!!

Anyway I got the levels dd (aged 6) is working at the moment - half way through Year 1.

Apart from that can anyone tell me what this actually means - please!

Writing 1a
Maths 1b

It means your DD is doing fine .
She is on track to be at least 2b by end y2, quite probably higher in writing, and possibly higher in maths.

What I would think you might want to ask is what the next step is in each subject (in case you want to support at home).

Anyone else with any advice? Thanks.

The expected level for the end of year 1 is a 1b, so, with 1 1/2 terms to go, your DD has met the expected target for maths, exceeded it for writing and is on target for reading.

Hi.
Levels work like this:
End of year 1 = level 1B/1A
End of year 2 = level 2B
E of y3= level 2A/3C
E of y4 = 3B
End of y5 = 3a/4c
End of y6 = 4b
The odd number years always cause a bit of a problem so the age related expectation is arguable between two adjacent levels.

Sorry to disagree with other posting but I think your daughters levels are very odd though? It is very unusual to have a lower reading than writing level particularly in key stage 1. I would question assessment data that shows 2 sub levels difference (it goes c then b then a) between writing and reading with reading lower? Seems highly unlikely? Level 1c is the bottom of level 1 and means she has only just completed reception (early years) levels. Has she had difficulties with phonics? Or blending & segmenting skills? Her writing is level 1a which means she should be writing all letters correctly and writing simple sentence - I like my mum etc. with CVC words spelt correctly? How is that possible if her reading is only 1c? I would go back and have a further conversation to understand this if I were you.
