The students all agreed that the days were amazing and they had the opportunity to work with several different mediums, the clay and wire sculpture being firm favourites.

Last week children in Year 3 and 5 sat the NAPLAN tests which measure the progress of each student.

NAPLAN gives parents an indication of their child’s learning stage, allows teachers and parents to identify any areas in which the child may benefit from help, and ensures that the requirements set by the syllabus are being met at school-level.

All Australian primary students in Year 3 and Year 5 undertake the test.

The first test was the language conventions test which was held on Tuesday morning for 40 minutes, followed by the writing test in the afternoon which is about 50 minutes.

On Wednesday the children did the reading part of NAPLAN which is also about 50 minutes. This was done in the morning session from 10am.

On Thursday the children completed the fourth and final part of NAPLAN, numeracy.

The numeracy test questions are a combination of multiple choice questions and questions requiring students to write numbers, identify errors, shade areas or indicate direction.

The test covers all aspects of numeracy.

Children in Year 3 and 5 worked in the library for all these tests.

The results of this test provide valuable information about what students know and what they can do with language and numbers. The results are presented in two reports – parent reports and school reports.

Parent reports provide parents/caregivers with information on what your child can do, how your child’s results compare with the rest of the students in Australia in each of the literacy and numeracy skills tested, and the achievement level your child falls into in each of the parts of the test.

These results are sent to schools in the second half of the year.
