The cards in the Facts4Life Early Years Pack are mapped against the Early Learning Goals. For settings that are working with the 2021 EYFS reforms and the early adopter version of the goals, the cards in the Pack continue to meet many of the goals, specifically these sections: Communication and Language (all sections), Personal, Social and Emotional Development (all sections), Physical Development (Gross Motor Skills ELG), Literacy (Comprehension ELG), and Understanding the World (Being Imaginative and Expressive). See the highlighted sections in the overview document here.
