Baseline proforma for EYFS Reception Dev Matters:   Specific Areas

Baseline proforma for EYFS Reception Dev Matters: Specific Areas

You cannot be in denial for any longer....start of term is here (I know, groan!) So you have a new group of tiddlers starting your Reception class and your Senior Management want Baseline data RIGHT NOW or preferably sooner. So after you have wiped away the tears, where on the Development Matters document is the little one you are observing? I hope that you will be able to use the proforma that I have made to be able to group children 'best-fit' according to their developmental stage. Then you just need to present it to your senior boss in the format they are used to: eProfile, learning ladders etc I thank the wonderful website ABCDoes for giving me the idea for the general look of the proforma and the idea that if I can use this for baseline, then every child has their next steps ready to go. By then using the ABCDoes adult guided proforma, I can plan one or two adult guided activities using the baseline proforma to make sure every child is covering their next steps. Job done!
