Knowing how the different areas of development are dependent on each other helps us to better understand the holistic development of the child. Some of the ways which social and emotional development affect other areas of development are: Having strong gross motor and fine motor skills can help a child to interact and build relationships. Children build relationships and start friendships through play. Some of the skills that can help a child in these situations are running and jumping.
School and teachers can influence the extent and quality of learning for all students. Teacher’s beliefs, practices and attitudes are important for understanding and improving educational processes. They are closely linked to teachers’ strategies for coping with challenges in their daily professional life. Educators have control over numerous factors that influence motivation, achievement and behaviour of students. They are turning around their approach into a focus on creating positive school climate and responsive classroom as part of holistic quality education based on child rights where there is effective teaching and classroom management, thus enhancing students’ learning experiences.
It is not only helping children develop pre-literacy skills, problem solving skills and concentration, but also generating social learning experiences, and helping children to express
Carrying out regular observations is vital because it ensures that we put the pupils at the centre of our practice. Through observations we can discover if a child or young person has developed new skills, their likes and dislikes, strengths and weaknesses as well as their understanding of what they are expected to do. Observation helps us assess pupils progress; we can find out about the specific care and learning needs of each child. We can then plan the next steps in children’s
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. Being a role model to the children is a personal skill as it gives me pride knowing the children are inspired by me and that they can learn from me by using their own initiative, being helpful to others and allowing the children to give suggestions on what they would like to do can keep them

Play encourages children to be in control and have choice which enhances their self esteem. Children gain a respect when playing as they learn to communicate well, by interacting with others, and finally children who have explored play in early years become more confident within later life as they are more likely to engage in lifelong learning (Macleod- Brudenell & Kay, 2008). Play is clearly shown to benefit children and provide them with skills they can use throughout
Introduction In early childhood education, it is important for teachers to always consider and understand children and the families’ needs. Early childhood teachers cannot only work with their colleagues to face children and the families’ needs but also need to work with multi-disciplinary to collaborate the ideas with each other and discuss the best outcome for the children and the families in early childhood education setting together. So, the more explanation about the multi-disciplinary team is that teachers with different professionals such as psychologists, child social worker, police, adult social worker, health visitor or court working together to provide different services and support for children and the families’ needs. They are diverse professional groups who work together in order to collaborate, reflect, access and support children’s development, health and learning and also families' needs.
If we are unable to communicate with the parents then this could have an impact on the child’s development and lead to the child’s issues progressing and getting worse. Strong positive relationships within the school environment and with parents is very beneficial to children. It helps to model effective communication and set a good example of appropriate behaviour towards others which in turn helps the children to recognise boundaries and what is acceptable when communicating with their peers and adults. Plus building a strong, trusting relationship with the children and young people makes them feel valued and helps provide a more effective learning environment and helps build their confidence with communicating as they progress through their lives.
Children need to feel comfortable in the environment that they learn in and education should be something that they enjoy. When children spend time outdoors while learning their interaction and motivation is increased and this causes them to absorb more information. This leads to a positive outlook when it comes to learning. Emotions are affected by the environment in which we work and play. When learning outdoors, children immerse
• What are the strengths of this assessment tool? This assessment allows for a more individualized approach to planning for specific children, while providing support to all. Using observation and anecdotal assessments provides multiple opportunities to view children learning and provides a more realistic view of their learning than an assessment, which only allows for right or wrong answers. •
Giving two children a task such as separating objects or a large floor puzzle will allow the children to work together. The curriculum will have an equal focus on family, safety, and support. Many lessons can be taught using examples of children’s families, life style, and individual selves. Getting to know the children and take an interest is a vital part of the curriculum
characteristics, for example, play together in group settings and group games; talking with peers; develop friendships; enjoy group activities and games; will work hard to develop a skill; can express emotions and anger or frustration; can change emotion quickly; develop their own point viewâ€¦ We should encourage children to take part in these activities and suggestions which can help children at this stage in their social and emotional development: join school and community groups; discuss any concerns about friends and their behaviour; help them to set their own achievable goals, which will help them independently in completing tasks and schoolwork; talk with child about respecting others and helping others; praise child for good behaviour and think about
To be developmentally appropriate, teaching practices must be successful, especially in producing a favorable impression on children—they must promote to children’s ongoing development and learning. Children who are interested and engaged in the classroom activities and lessons learn more. By stimulating active interest and engagement, I guarantee that children will get the most out of the instructional opportunities demonstrated in the classroom. I present information using a variety of learning formats, including large and small groups, choice time (in interest areas), and routines. Routines such as eating snacks and transitioning from one activity to another are all possibly valuable learning situations if teachers use these activities as chances for one-on-one conversations with children or to support a learning objective through singing a song or reciting a rhyme.
Using scaffolding strategies accordingly to activities and experiences, and scaffolding the curriculum into practice in general allow children to gradually develop in all areas of their learning and development at a pace that suits them and with lots of guidance and adult support. Scaffolding gives the educators an opportunity to guide children to the point where they can understand tasks and concepts on their own. When a child can do so, educators rest knowing that the children have learnt
