Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Self-confidence & self-awareness: Children are confident to try new activities, and to say why they like some activities more than others.
- They are confident to speak in a familiar group, will talk about their ideas, and will choose the resources they need for their chosen activities.
- They say when they do or don’t need help.
Managing feelings & 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 rules.
- They adjust their behaviour to different situations, and take changes of routine in their stride.
Making relationships: Children play co-operatively, taking turns with others.
- They take account of one another’s ideas about how to organise their activity.
- They show sensitivity to others’ needs and feelings, and form positive relationships with adults and other children.
Reading: Children read and understand simple sentences.
- They use phonic knowledge to decode regular words and read them aloud accurately.
- They also read some uncommon 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 words.
- They write simple sentences which can be read by themselves and others.
- Some words are spelt correctly and others are phonetically plausible
Numbers: Children count reliably with numbers from 1-20, place them in order and say which number is one more or less than a given number, using quantities and objects:
- They add and subtract two single digit numbers and count on or back to find the answer.
- They solve problems, including doubling, halving and sharing.
Shape, space and measure: 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.
