    What idiot coined that one and expected all EY practitioners to know what s/he meant?
    recognises - what a stupid way of putting it.
    Sorry, I've little faith in these mad completionist statements.

    And why on earth is recognizing rhythm in spoken words an essential question of child development?

    Thank you Inky for at least not making me feel any more stupid.
    I am trying to use my 'professional judgement' to tick off some statements,(shall I admit I have no post it evidence for!) so I can give the reception teacher my assessments for the children that have just moved up this week.
    As you can tell I really believe in all this Dev matters stuff, I still haven't ticked off their sheets and they have been back 3 days

    May2, I bet you and the reception teacher talk about the children every day. I bet many of the children's families are already part of your school's life. I bet the reception class teacher would rather share information with you than look through page after page of data.
    We have to be rigorous, and collecting reliable data is one way of being so as dependably as we can.

    I've started a thread on Mad Completionism. It's probably a load of rubbish that will embarrass me tomorrow.
