About This Primary Resource

A very useful document that can be used to record significant learning. Suitable for recording a group observation or a long observation. It is ideal to include in a child’s learning journey. It should be used alongside our ‘What Next’ document (which can be found in our observation and assessment section) to record next steps. We also have a short observation document with 6 templates to a page.

    This is a great observation format- particularly like the reference to the Leuven scale.

    I am looking to change planning to objective based. Would like ideas as to what that looks like when planning.

I really enjoy putting together eye-catching displays in my classroom and ELHQ always has lots of colourful and engaging material to choose from.

As an NQT this site has been a lifesaver. The resources have saved me loads of time and the forest school activities have been particularly useful. Thanks!

The bright colours and clear images are brilliant for my SEN pupils. For a lot of the children routines are really important, so the visual timetable in particular has been a big hit.

All of the story resources have been put to good use in our library corner, especially during World Book Day. Keep up the good work!

I am new to EYFS and all the planning documents on this site have been really helpful, especially all the templates.
