What Colour Band?


Guest

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I'm after some help (as usual).

 

For some course work I'm doing a plan, discussing EL goals and progrssion. I have a cild who is able to recite numbers but not use them as labels, working to the foundation stage curriculum, which colour band would he be in, yellow or blue.

I realise this may be a really silly question, but I think my brain has switched off since the children came home. :o

 

thanks

Sally

I've always been a bit of a rebel in that I find it impossible to put children in 'boxes' or 'colours'. On my profiles I do colour half blue and half yellow if I think they've shown progess but haven't achieved all the yellow stepping stones...... others will no doubt disagree with me but our receiving schools are ok with it and I would far rather record achievement so there's no misunderstanding - after all someone might interpret a totally blue box as not being able to do any of the yellow stepping stones which is equally wrong. Why not put a post-it with a comment on the profile if you're concerned?

 

What is most important is a whole team approach, that you are all consistent in your recording methods.

Thanks LJW and Susan,

I agree with not wanting to 'label' te children as being in one band or the other, unfortunately the course work asks for it!! I sometimes wonder where they get the 'test-book' children from, I've yet to meet one. Our children definetely have a 'mix and match' approach to their development (a bit from here, a bit from there), just as it's supposed to be.

Thanks again

Sally
