EYFS Short Observation Template

About This Primary Resource

A very useful document that can be used to record significant learning. It features 6 observation templates to a page and so is ideal to use when making short observations. It is ideal to include in a child’s learning journey. We also have a long observation document with only one template to a page. You may also find our ‘What Next’ document (which can be found in our observation and assessment section) useful in order to record next steps following your observation.

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 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!

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

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.
