Thank you very much. That is great. Very kind of you to post all those questions.

kreme Sat 05-Mar-16 23:52:43

Wondering if this is the kind of work??

mrz Sun 06-Mar-16 06:17:27

No the CLIC tests are for primary aged pupils (step 8 roughly 7/8 year olds)

irvine101 Sun 06-Mar-16 10:02:30

kreme, do you have them on level 6 & 7 ? (Not the CLIC, actual maths level 6 and 7)

mrz Sun 06-Mar-16 10:49:18

www.pgfl.org.uk/schools/tf/Greenhill/cs/maths/Documents/9X1%20and%209Y1.pdf disclaimer the content doesn't reflect current expectations

irvine101 Sun 06-Mar-16 12:16:33

Thank you mrz!

irvine101 Sun 06-Mar-16 14:23:40

My ds has very patchy level of knowledge when it comes to maths. He is capable of a lot of Level6, part of level7, and about 1/4 of level 8.
What is the expected age to those levels? I know it's old curriculum, and it doesn't tell you anything about current expectation.

Richa1 Wed 09-Mar-16 13:46:24

The tests seem to be different in our school. Do they use different tests in Wales? Would I be able to find the clic tests used in Welsh schools anywhere?

mrz Wed 09-Mar-16 17:07:35

Irvine GCSE age 14-16

mrz Wed 09-Mar-16 17:11:13

Of course it's all changed

irvine101 Wed 09-Mar-16 17:25:27

Thank you mrz. I will let my ds get on with KS2 level nrich rather than let him explore further.

mrz Wed 09-Mar-16 20:29:49

Richa1 there are new versions of the tests to match the new curriculum and the original version do you know which they are using?

Richa1 Thu 10-Mar-16 11:12:03

Mrz, thanks for replying. They are using the new tests. They are now using a set of 20 tests as opposed to 5 or 6 that were in the old version of the tests.

mrz Sat 12-Mar-16 15:29:46

Is this familiars?

Richa1 Sat 12-Mar-16 19:42:05

Thanks Mrz. Yes they are in that format but I think Welsh schools must use different questions. They don't have Mully questions at this level. And the other questions are different.

mrz Sun 13-Mar-16 05:59:08

I'll see if I can get a message to Ben Harding who wrote the Big Maths prog I'm afraid teaching in England I'm not familiar with Welsh version.

mrz Sun 13-Mar-16 13:01:54

Ben replied and says that the Welsh versions are different.
Could the school help ?

Richa1 Mon 14-Mar-16 10:16:38

Thank you very much for everything. I will get further advice from the school. Thanks for all the time you have spent answering my queries, it is really appreciated. Should the school be sending home examples of the clic tests?
