Types of exercises

The exercises are not necessarily tied to the national curriculum. This means that some are pitched above the level of academic expectations, in order to measure the children’s learning however it has been acquired, be it at school or within the family.
Alongside these activities in the classroom, each child’s teacher is asked to fill in a questionnaire about the skills learned by the child and any support he or she receives for special needs, as well as the characteristics of the class as a whole and the teacher him- or herself.

Examples of exercises in Year 3 of primary school

The children will be given exercises that probe their maths learning (counting, comparing and simple reasoning) and mastery of the French language (identification of written words, oral comprehension, written comprehension and knowledge of grammatical rules).

For instance, after listening to two sentences (for oral comprehension), the children will be asked to decide whether they mean the same thing and to write their answer out ("The fish is neither slow nor noisy |=| The fish is quick but not noisy").

The children will do most of the exercises on their own, to free the teacher up to work with the other pupils.
