    • Hi anneager,
      I'm glad this resource is useful! Thanks for letting us know :)

  • Great resource! The spreadsheet for Test 1 says that Q6 is 2 marks, but on the test it says 1 mark. Also, the percentages don't seem to add up as it says one question is 117% not achieved. Is there any chance someone can check over the spreadsheet please? Thanks.

    • Hello, thank you for your response. I have downloaded the spreadsheet again, but I am still having the same issues. It now says that Q6 is worth 1 mark, but when you put 1 mark into the grid, it appears amber. Also, the percentage of 'target not met' is still above 100%? Many thanks.

  • I love these assessments but I use them (and others from your site) with children who are not at the expected level for their age. Is there any way you can remove the year group number at the top. Currently what I do is print off one, tippex out the year group and then copy. It's a bit soul destroying for a Year 5 child to see that they are doing at Year 3 assessment! Thanks

    • Hi coz777,

      Thank you for your comment on the Twinkl website.

      Before I ask our teacher team about this for you, I was wondering if you could provide a few more details about the resource you're looking for? Are you looking for an assessment spreadsheet to record pupils progress against the objectives? Or an overview of objectives for the year group?

      I hope you have a lovely day! : )

  • Very useful resource but in term 2 unicorn is said to be preceded by 'an'. As the sound made by the letter 'u' is a consonant sound in this case, surely it should be 'an'? I will tipex and change to umbrella as it may confuse my Yr 3s.

  • This looks great. Do you have a breakdown of the marks for each test and what you would consider to be emerging, expected and exceeded? Thanks

    , Oct 19th
    • Hi js_sedley,
      Thank you very much for your comment! We don't currently have a breakdown of marks and this may vary depending upon the LA. Within our LA (for Y3 SPaG) a minimum of 9 objectives ticked was considered entering, 19 for developing and 29 for secure. Each objective having 3 check boxes (beginning, progressing and embedded) I hope this helps : )
