MST  Interview  Answers  


Initially  as  the  children  started  KG2,  the  children  are  observed,  with  a  focus  on  their  engagement  in  
the  various  areas,  the  interactions  with  each  other  and  the  teachers.    From  the  information  
gathered  we  can  gather  vital  information  about  the  children’s  interests  strengths  and  areas  of  
development.  

At  the  beginning  of  each  unit  we  conduct  a  pre-­‐assessment  related  to  the  unit  this  displays  the  
knowledge  children  have  regarding  the  unit.  A  summative  assessment  is  conducted  at  the  end  of  the  
6-­‐week  block  to  assess  the  knowledge  the  children  have  acquired.  We  use  the  EYFS  document  to  
guide  our  planning.  Each  week  we  select  3  objectives  for  each  area  as  a  focus.  The  3  objectives  for  
each  area  are  for  the  differentiation  low,  medium  and  high  ability.    We  use  the  objectives  in  a  
checklist  and  during  teacher  led  activities  when  the  children  are  engaged.  

We  also  use  baseline  assessments;  these  are  ongoing  and  focus  on  the  prime  areas,  PSED,  CL,  PD  of  
the  EYFS  document.  We  are  now  undertaking  observations  and  using  tapestry  which  is  an  online  
children’s  portfolio  linked  to  EYFS  objectives.  

The  purpose  of  all  the  assessments  is  to  gain  a  deeper  understanding  of  the  children’s  
developmental  progress,  areas  of  strength  and  areas  that  require  further  development.  

The  whole  cohort  of  children  in  Kg2  is  grouped  for  two  lessons  in  the  week  for  literacy.
