How to support your child with their controlled assessments.

Suggestions for the writing assessment.

Encourage your child to:

  • Produce cue cards and resources such as gap fills to help them memorise their sentences.
  • Create post-it notes of key words which they find difficult.
  • Use colour coding for different paragraphs.
  • Rewrite their paragraphs and gradually take away the prompts.

Suggestions for the speaking assessment.

Encourage your child to:

  • Record themselves giving their answers.
  • Create cue cards or use www.cueprompter.com
  • Read their answers aloud and prompt them with words that they are unsure of.
  • Repeat their answers while gradually decreasing support.
