As we mentioned to many of you during our home visits, the first 2-3 weeks of EYFS are us getting to know the children and completing an initial baseline assessment. This year we are lucky enough to be taking part in a Government pilot scheme, where they provide us with the resources and the assessment tools on line.
For further information here is the document provided by the National Foundation of Educational Research. There is also a video that has been produced for you to watch.
The children are not aware this is any kind of assessment, they have just been completing a 'fun job' with their class teacher! By the end of this week we hope to have completed the phonological blending and early comprehension parts of the assessment. Next week, we will then move onto counting and maths calculation.
We are so proud of how all your children have settled into school and are loving getting to know all of their individual personalities.
