Key Learning for the EYFS in CLL
What is Key Learning for the EYFS in CLL?
The Key Learning for EYFS in CLL statements are the small step goals for Reception children to work through to achieve the ‘Expected’ ELGs in Reading and Writing.
Where have they come from?
The Key Learning for EYFS in CLL statements have been identified primarily from the EYFS. Other key documents cross referenced in their preparation include Development Matters, Letters and Sounds, and Lancashire Assessment and Progression materials.
How are they different from the EYFS ELGs?
There were two main aims in creating Key Learning for EYFS. The first aim was to pull out the key steps in learning to enable clear planning for the Literacy elements within EYFS, and the second was to provide a clear progression to achieve the ELGs for the Prime and Specific aspects towards the ‘Expected’ Level.
How might Key Learning for the EYFS in CLL be useful?
The Key Learning for EYFS in CLL statements should help to focus, and be exemplified, during whole class and group teaching. Taught in the context of lively, engaging and creative themes, they help to ensure that pupils make progress as readers and writers. Teaching should ensure that skills are modelled and scaffolded and that pupils are given opportunities to apply them in a range of different contexts and through continuous provision.
