    Development Matters includes the characteristics of effective learning and the early learning goals. So you don't need those separately.

    If your focus is on FS and KS1, I don't think you need the KS2 curriculum - you're unlikely to look at it, although I suppose there's no harm in having the Year 3 stuff there to look at to see progression.

    I did an Early Years PGCE (FS and KS1) and the only paperwork I really looked at during the course was Development Matters and Letters & Sounds.

    docs in italics I would put in a separate file if this is something you are really interested

    docs that are underlined I would file in the bin as unnecessary
