  • It seems that this resource has just been changed - the test I printed last week had "Overlooking the River Stour" as its poetry section. This has now been swapped and leaves me without any way of getting the mark scheme for the old version. Could this be posted alongside the new version please?

      I am so sorry about this. I have emailed our design team and asked them to send you a copy wth the answers of the original version :)

  • Hello, we are keen to use the Brazil text as an end of term assessment, but due to censorship issues (working in the Middle East), we desperately need an editable version of this. Reading text and answer booklet if possible. Can you save our lives please Twinkl???

  • Great resource, but I think the explanations required with some of the answers to gain full marks are much too difficult for year 5 pupils to comprehend.

  • Hi therewhere are the question sheets for this RC?

    • Hi rjoshi,
      Thank you so much for getting in touch! It's lovely to hear from you :) The answer booklets for the children to record their answers in are within the folders for each term - so each of these folders contains the reading booklet, the answer sheet and the mark scheme. I hope this helps!

  • The spreadsheet and gap analysis is useful and will be used in planning but what would you class as a score for working at ARE? Thanks

    • Good afternoon elpheba5!
      Thank you for getting in touch. We recommend using our assessment resources as a way of identifying gaps and next steps to further their learning rather than for scoring. Please let us know if there is anything else we can help with.

  • Can anyone feedback on how accurately this levels children please?

    • Good afternoon!
      Thank you for getting in touch! We advise using this resource as a way of identifying any potential gaps in children's learning and identifying next steps to progress their learning rather than for leveling children. Hope this helps! :)

  • These are great resources, however when photocopying the Brazil one the coloured background on the final page is very difficult to read. Would it be possible to create a black and white version as I have a lot of children who use a coloured overlay when reading? Thanks in advance.

  • Please forgive me if I've missed this but is it possible to have a guide as to how you would band the marks for each paper to give an indication of whether they are working below, within or exceeding age related expectations? Many thanks.

    • Hi jacquievanstone,
      Thank you very much for commenting! It's great to hear from you :) As part of the pack there is a Reading Assessment Overview, which gives guidance on how to use the packs :)
      I hope this helps!

    • The resource doesn't seems to give you an indication of ARE achievement unless you put the scores into the excel spread sheet, Is this correct?

    • Hi PaddySaia,
      Thank you very much for commenting! It's great to hear from you :)
      The spreadsheets are designed to be used with each corresponding test although it is up to you how you collate and interpret your pupils' data.
      I hope this helps!

  • Parts of the resource seem to be rather too difficult. One of the responses to the Y5 'overlooking the river Stour' seems to be of GCSE/A-level standard. I'm sure that most Y5s won't understand the words 'ominous, idyllic or connotations'.

    • Hi louiseballantyne,
      Thank you so much for letting us know about this one. I'll ask our lovely resource team to take a look at this for you!

  • Is there a pack like this for Year 4? I've looked but I can't find one!

  • Hi, I used the Term 1 booklet and questions today for some tutoring, and there were a couple of mistakes in the first text (I haven't checked the others). One is in the first paragraph of Phone Trouble - there is a list which arguably should have an 'and' before 'pencil cases'. It also repeats 'often' in that sentence. Just style, but the child I was tutoring pointed it out! In the answer booklet, question 11 says 'Find and copy the sentence that shows she has already searched her bag?'. This shouldn't have a question mark. As I said, I haven't checked the other booklets. Can you sort this out guys? Thank you!

    • Hi megancope,
      Thank you so much for letting us know about this. I'll get this resource checked right away!

      , Aug 6th
    • Hi there megancope,
      Thank you for spotting this! Our lovely teacher and design teams have fixed the mistake and emailed the corrected resource to you! It will also be updated on the website very soon - I hope you find it useful!

  • Hi guys - any chance I could have this as a word document so that it can be easily adapted into Braille? Thanks!
