What skills or knowledge would you like the children in your class to have on their first day?

We are conducting some informal research into our school readiness preparations and wanted some feedback from EYFS Teachers and TAs. Could you possibly take a moment to let us know the most important things you would like children to be able to achieve, understand or know when they start in reception? It might be the ability to recognise their name, concentration and listening skills, or personal care. Your feedback and suggestions will help to inform our planning over the next 12 months, along with other elements.

Thank you so much for your time and if you have any questions, comments, or ideas please do not hesitate to contact us. Please use the 5 boxes below to submit your answers.
