I think explaining to children what they might be learning is very important. For EY children this is much better done verbally than written. There will always be children who would not be able to read.
At this time of year though you could have it written as well, for the more able readers, for referring to at the end or during the session.
I think it would be fine to have just a verbal explanation for the children, then have it written on your lesson plan for the observers.
With regards to your lesson. Are the 5 DM points all from the same aspect of learning?
