Today the results of the first round of Michael Gove’s new tests for 7 year-olds are released, to the dismay of teachers and parents alike.
Top Infants’ teacher Miss Lovely explains: Here is an example of a failed art test. The children are required to recreate this self-portrait of a 7-year-old signed Mikey G. Esme is our most talented artist. You can see how carefully she has copied the drawing. She has even recreated the scratching out and repositioning of the elbow and seat. However, with this attention to detail, she ran out of time and failed to make the creases in his rugby shorts sharp enough. I’m afraid she’ll be joining the majority who go home today with “Failure” stamped across their foreheads, clutching an Independent Schools brochure.
Fortunately the letter home is one-sided. There was room on the back for some word games for the parents to play. They can search for the words ‘a, child, down, government, is, pawn, political, the, with, your’. And they can play hangman, every time they fail to guess a letter in M______ G____ they draw another dangling limb on a b*****d in a suit.
Teachers speak out against Goveability testing for 7 year olds.
