      Key Stage 2 (Year 3) - Maths "levels"?

      Is there anywhere online where I can find the syllabus laid out for me? At parents evening I was briefly shown a page explaining the levels they work through. DS is stuck on level 2C and he should now be on 3A (or does is go 2A then to 3C... got a bit confused!). I thought I had a copy of this at home but it seems not and his math's teacher is a bit of a misery so if I can find it myself so much the better! I think the level he is stuck at included such things as 2D and 3D shapes.

      I used to use BBC Kids Revision site and this http://curriculum.qca.org.uk/key-sta...ge2/index.aspx
      Not sure if they're still as helpful though

      The levels go 2c then 2b, 2a onto 3c, 3b, 3a etc

      ETA Just to say that is exactly where my daughter got stuck with her maths, we ended up getting her some private tuition and a couple of years later she was coming out top in the year group

      It does go 2c, 2b and then 2a before 3c, or at least it used to

      At the end of year 2 they are expected to be a 2b, I wouldn't say in year 3 at this point they would be a 3a unless of course the progress has slowed for them personally (if that makes sense).

      It should be online somewhere, I'll try and find it.
      Been busy and got the start of a big clear out on ebay. Please take a look - it's like an Aladdin's cave!

      IS there anything of any use on here:

      http://curriculum.qca.org.uk/

      found that via this school, which seems really clued-up on helping parents/kids:

      Is this it? (the download)

      This has level 2 and 3 so you can see what parts he's able to do.

      Thanks ladies... will search those links.

      He is stuck on 2a and should be a 3c. They are concerned as in 6 months he hasn't progressed but I think it's to do with his "memory" problems!

      Oana... just by the by... were the lessons expensive? I'm having problems finding anyone locally atm.

      That's quite useful but it doesn't seem to specify the a, b, or c expectations within those levels iyswim... perhaps it's not all schools who break it down like that.

      whether a b or c is up or down depends on the school I *think* so 2a could be just above 2 and 2c working towards 3 or the other way round j- you prob need to ask the school.

      No, all school do break it down as the assessment levels are very wide. Plus when it was originally invented, one of the problems was children were expected to move 2 levels in 4 years, (for example from years 3-6 children were expected to move from level 2 to level 4). It was reasonably easy to see if the children had made progress over a year even if their overall level was the same but that wasn't enough for some people, hence the sub levels being thought up and used.

      You could ask the teacher for a copy maybe if they are not online but I wouldn't worry too much about the actual sub levels (IMO the danger could be teaching to the assessment to get a specific 3c).

      If your DS is at 2a, then I would help him with anything that's on the level 3 assessment that you feel he needs extra help with as that will aid him achieving level 3c and level 3 in general. Does he find some of the areas easier than others?

      http://nationalstrategies.standards.....uk/node/47548 this is very useful - it is the new way teachers are doing assessment.
