Years 3 & 4 (Stage 2)

Your child has taken the significant step from infants to primary school and into the first of two years of Learning Stage 2.

 

National test

There are four tests covering numeracy, reading, writing, spelling, punctuation and grammar.You will receive a report of your child's achievement in the tests. The results tell you how your child is progressing in these areas and can guide the learning support you give your child at home.

 

Year 4 is the second and final year of Learning Stage 2.

 

Getting involved
