This Half Term we will be focusing upon these learning outcomes from Development Matters for CL.



Listening and attention

Children listen attentively in a range of situations. They

listen to stories, accurately anticipating key events and

respond to what they hear with relevant comments, questions or actions. They give their attention to what

others say and respond appropriately, while engaged in another activity.


Children follow instructions involving several ideas or

actions. They answer ‘how’ and ‘why’ questions about

their experiences and in response to stories or events.


Children express themselves effectively, showing

awareness of listeners’ needs. They use past, present

and future forms accurately when talking about events

that have happened or are to happen in the future. They develop their own narratives and explanations by

connecting ideas or events.
