What the KHDA says: "Nearly all children in FS2 demonstrate outstanding levels of receptive and expressive language in English. They listen attentively to stories and respond enthusiastically. They have also mastered a range of phonic skills, which enable them to read words, simple sentences and a range of suitable books. Almost all can speak using the past, present and future tenses. Most children can write simple words and sentences in response to stories and events in their own lives. They also understand the conventions of print. Overall, the children make outstanding progress in literacy."

"Children in FS2 learn quickly in mathematics and attain above curriculum standards. They can identify numbers, count successfully from one to 20 and complete simple addition and subtraction tasks. They use manipulatives to support their learning when adding simple numbers. They can apply their number skills in a variety of different contexts. Their understanding of shape and space is also strong. They use mathematical vocabulary accurately. Overall, the children make very good progress in numeracy."

"Children acquire outstanding scientific skills, knowledge and understanding, as demonstrated by their understanding of differences and similarities in objects, materials and living things. They are able to apply their own hypotheses about scientific concepts, for example mixing different materials with food dye to explore colour. They independently explore the uniqueness of their environment and investigate how it is different to other environments. Children are given many opportunities to develop investigative skills and, as a result, they make outstanding progress in their scientific development."
