Reading in Foundation Stage
The EYFS framework is structured very differently to the National Curriculum as it is organised across seven areas of learning and development rather than subject areas. This document shows how the skills taught across EYFS feed into National Curriculum subjects.
This document demonstrates which statements from the 2020 Development Matters are prerequisite skills for Reading within the National Curriculum. The table below outlines the most relevant statements taken from the Early Learning Goals in the EYFS Statutory Framework and the Development Matters age ranges for Three and Four Year-Olds and Foundation Stage to match the programme of study for Reading.
