What the KHDA says: “Children demonstrate elevated levels of knowledge and understanding in language development that are well above age-related expectations. They respond very positively to the varied opportunities to improve their vocabulary through speaking and listening. Most make outstanding progress over time and against lesson learning objectives. They can use their understanding of phonics to read words and write simple sentences especially when the topics are exciting, such as investigating mini-beasts.”

“Children make excellent progress and consistently achieve well above curriculum and age-related expectations in all aspects of numeracy. In lessons, they are developing a very strong understanding of number. They can perform the key skills of counting, reading and writing numbers and measuring different quantities. They can add and subtract two numbers and record these using the correct symbols. They can place numbers in order and recognise larger and smaller relationships. They can identify and describe the features of simple shapes such as squares and triangles.”

“Children’s understanding of scientific concepts and their development of enquiry skills are well above curriculum and age-related expectations. They demonstrate natural curiosity about objects in their environment. Critical thinking and problem-solving are integral features of their learning during focused play. An example is when KG1 children select materials to make a shelter for their pets. Children’s workbooks show that they make outstanding progress in developing their scientific, knowledge, understanding and skills in relation to their starting points and as measured against lesson learning objectives.”
