What's included?

Editable Word doc

Key Stage



Years R-2

If you’re getting stuck into your EYFS planning, you can easily adapt this blank lesson plan template to suit your individual early years setting.

This editable Word document contains space for you to record:

  • Area of learning
  • Development Matters/Early Learning Goals
  • Learning intentions

There’s also a dedicated area where you can set out how learning will progress and your key teaching points. Break your session down into:

  • Introduction
  • Activities and experiences
  • Conclusion/plenary

Once you’ve finished the lesson, there’s space for you to jot down an evaluation and next steps. This EYFS planning template also has room for you to jot down any resources you need, as well as key vocabulary and questions.

You can also make a note of how you will differentiate the task, if necessary, and how you plan to assess it.
