Observation is the formal term for one of the most important aspects of day-today professional practice when working with children and young people. It is how we find out the specific needs of individual children by carefully looking, listening and noting the activities of a child/young person or group of children or young people. Observation allows us to see a pupil as an individual; this is important for every child or young person in whatever setting but even more important in large group settings. Observations should be both formal (planned) but much of it will be informal (spontaneous) carried out as you work with pupils. Without observation, overall planning would simply be based on what we felt was important, fun or interesting (or all three) but it might not necessarily meet the needs of the children and young people in our care.

I have gained patience when working with children and I believe it is a skill that is required in order for children to exceed their needs and to help a child during transitions to reach their full potential. Timing is key and with support the children will be able to emotionally adapt to attending school but also embrace new surroundings. Encouragement while children are taking part in activities in school allows children to gain self-esteem and confidence as they are being motivated which can give them a sense of achievement.
