Characteristics of effective learning
Listening and attention: Children listen attentively in a range of situations. Children listen to stories, accurately anticipating key events and respond to what they hear with relevant comments questions or actions. They give their attention to what others say and respond appropriately while engaged in another activity.
Understanding: Children follow instructions involving several ideas or actions. They answer ‘how’ and ‘why’ questions about their experiences and in response to stories and events.
Speaking: Children express themselves effectively, showing awareness of listeners needs. They use past, present and future forms accurately when talking about events that have happened or are to happen in the future. They develop their own narratives explanations by connecting ideas and events.
Health and self-
Personal, social and emotional development
Managing feelings and behaviour: Children talk about how they and others show feelings, talk about their own and others behaviour and its consequences, and know that some behaviour is unacceptable. They work as part of a group or class, and understand and follow the rules. They adjust their behaviour to different situations and take changes of routine in their stride.
Making relationships: Children play co-
Reading: Children read and understand simple sentences. They use phonic knowledge to decode regular words and read them aloud accurately. They also read some common irregular words. They demonstrate understanding when talking with others about what they have read.
Writing: Children use their phonic knowledge to write words in ways which match their spoken sounds. They also write some irregular common words. They write simple sentences which can be read by themselves and others. Some words are spelt others are phonetically plausible.
Numbers: Children count reliably with numbers from 1 to 20, place them in order and
say which number is one more or one less than a given number. Using quantities and
objects, they add and subtract two single-
Shape, space and measures: Children use everyday language to talk about size, weight capacity, position, distance, time and money to compare quantities and objects and to solve problems. They recognise, create, and describe patterns. They explore characteristics of everyday objects and shapes and use mathematical language to describe them.
Understanding the world
People and communities: Children talk about past and present events in their own lives and in the lives of family members. They know that other children don’t always enjoy the same things, and are sensitive to this. They know about similarities and differences between themselves and others, and among families, communities and traditions.
The World: Children know about similarities and differences in relation to places objects materials and living things. They talk about the features of their own immediate environment and how environments might vary from on another. The make observations of animals and plants and explain why some things occur and talk about changes.
Technology: Children recognise that a range of technology is used in places such as homes and schools. They select and use technology for particularly purposes.
Exploring and using media and materials: Children sing songs, make music and dance, and experiment with ways of changing them. They safely use and explore a variety of materials, tools and techniques, experimenting with colour, design, texture form and function.
Being imaginative: Children use what they have learnt about media and materials in
original ways, thinking about uses and purposes. They represent their own ideas thoughts
and feelings through design and technology, art, music, dance, role-
