NAPLAN – Year 3 and 5

Students in Year 3 and Year 5 have so far completed writing and reading NAPLAN testing this week. All testing has run smoothly, and students have taken the testing in their stride. Students will complete Conventions of Language (spelling, grammar and punctuation) and Numeracy on Monday and Wednesday respectively next week. As mentioned last week, please keep in mind that these tests provide only a snapshot of your child’s learning in specific areas, and do not capture your child’s passions and interests, their kindness and compassion or their dreams for the future. If you have any questions or concerns, please Sam F or myself.
