  • Change independently for PE with the exception of top button and tie

  • Write their first name and surname

  • Stick sheets into their book neatly

  • Recognise numbers 1-20 at least

  • Ask for help and explain why they are stuck

  • Have a positive attitude towards learning

  • Be resilient when things become tricky
