What the KHDA says: "In English, the majority of children attain at levels that are above curriculum standards. From their individual starting points, a large majority of children make better than expected progress towards the curriculum standards. In Foundation Stage 1 (FS1) children listen carefully to stories and can share their ideas and thoughts orally. By FS2 the majority of children speak confidently to adults and peers, expressing themselves clearly using a good range of vocabulary. Most children utilise an increasing number of phonic sounds to write simple three letter words. A few can write short stories using basic sentences.”

“The majority of children’s attainment in mathematics exceeds curriculum expectations. Active involvement in practical learning helps to consolidate children’s mathematical knowledge and understanding. As a result, a large majority of children are making better than expected progress. In FS2, most children can identify numbers beyond 12. Children have good opportunities to apply their mathematical understanding to solve problems, such as working out the number before or after a given number. The majority of children are beginning to read analogue time and work out future times when minutes are added.”

In science, the large majority of children attain levels above curriculum standards and they make better than expected progress. In FS1, children can name the features of various insects and use their senses to touch, smell and hear. In FS2, children are making progress in developing their scientific skills by, for example, identifying the distinctive features of the oceans, such as the twilight zone and abyss. They recognise and can name a wide range of sea creatures, and know the zone in the ocean in which many of these animals live.”
