EYFS Reading Records - Individual Tracking Sheet linked to Development Matters

(0)
A one page Reading Record for Reception aged pupils, featuring the ‘Development Matters’ reading statements for 30-50 months, 40-60 months and the Early Learning Goal. There is space for teacher comments and logging the dates and books read each week. In my Reception class we have a reading folder for the whole class. Every child gets one of these sheets either half-termly or termly, to document their progression and to support assessment. Practitioners write comments by the side and date when steps are achieved. Having the Development Matters statements easily to hand helps prompt practitioners to further children’s learning and plan for their ‘next steps’.

Morning Tasks for the Interactive Whiteboard

(0)
A Powerpoint presentation featuring over 25 different ‘morning task’ activities. We’ve found this really useful to display first thing in the morning – to keep children busy learning as they sit on the carpet during Register time. Children study the scenes independently before we come together and discuss them as a whole class. Also great for those times when you find yourself with a spare five minutes and a classful of children! A selection of activities is provided, including: *Reading Tasks – children read words and find the corresponding objects hidden in pictures *Number Hunts – children find hidden numbers in a variety of scenes (1-10/1-20) *Tricky Word Wordsearches – children hunt for the tricky words hidden (always left > right) *2D Shape Hunts – children search for examples of 2D shapes in pictures *Spot the Difference – great for Listening and Attention, Communication and Language skills Some scenes are more challenging than others, and words in the Reading tasks are fully editable so you can make them more complex as children’s reading skills progress.
