Over the years, during my time as Maths Leader at Yew Tree Community School, I have always researched new ways of planning, teaching and assessing children and their understanding of applying their skills in maths.
Once the curriculum changed in 2014, the tests and resources we were using did not meet the needs of our pupils or meet the curriculum outcomes.
This is when I began to search for a tool the teachers could use and adapt to assess pupils’ knowledge throughout the year.
As a primary school teacher, I know that finding the right questions is just as important as discovering the right answers. A question has the power to unlock a child’s understanding, create awe and wonder, and help someone push into new and uncharted knowledge and thinking.
Yet finding suitable and relevant written questions from treasured, yet outdated SATs papers, tired and yellowing textbooks or barely readable repeatedly photocopied black pages of smudges is not ideal and can create problems for teachers and barriers to learning for pupils.
Questions that you can search for in seconds, tests you can produce to match exactly what you've taught, assessments that help you to devise the best curriculum for your class. Rising Stars Assessment Bank is exactly what we needed to let go of old curriculum papers!
