As I listen and talk in different situations, I am learning to take turns and am developing my awareness of when to talk and when to listen

LIT 0-02a

When I engage with others, I know when and how to listen, when to talk, how much to say, when to ask questions and how to respond with respect.

LIT 1-02a



I have explored numbers, understanding that they represent quantities, and I can use them to count, create sequences and describe order

MNU 0-02a



I have experienced, used and described a wide range of toys and common appliances. I can say ‘what makes it go’ and say what they do when they work.

I have experienced the wonder of looking at the vastness of the sky, and can recognise the sun, moon and stars and link them to daily patterns of life - SCN 0-06a
