Assessment Booklets

Maths and English - rainbows and gemstones

For: semi-formal and formal learners

To support the tracking of progress in Maths and English, we have developed our own Castle assessment levels. We have called these the Rainbow and Gemstone levels. 

These booklets will give you an overview of each Rainbow and Gemstone level, share the strategies we use to support learning in school, and make some suggestions about how you can support your child with their learning at home. 

Rainbows English & Maths (semiformal learners)

Gemstones English and maths (formal and some semiformal learners).
