Children can notice the bad communication and that would not set a good example for growing, young children. Working in a school, staff will be face with having to communicate with parents of their pupils, effective communication is needed in this case because it is important that teachers, teaching assistants and parents have a positive relationship so they can communicate the outside of school and inside of school life of pupils. 1.2 Explain the principals of relationship building with children, young people and adults.

This make's the child very happy and like to continue or add more to what they have done. It also makes them feel good about themselves. Praises are very important when working with children because it also helps the develop their morals. Negative behaviour will be ignored as long as there is no health and safety risk. A tantrum will be ignored by the teachers but if a child is expressing negative behaviour such as hitting, they will then be told to stop in a firm voice (not shouting) Vygotsky - Adults should provide a play based curriculum and engage with children in play activities to extend their learning.
The child will learn to share toys and develop a better vocabulary by listening to others talking. There is also a risk of stress by the child feeling unsafe this can lead to them isolating themselves from the group and not trying to mix with others, this can be hard as they won’t have their parents or career there for support. Another predictable life event is when we leave home/leaving care. The positive learning that they will get from this will be a sense of independence and maturity. They will have to learn to make their own decisions and be responsible for more house work such as cleaning, shopping and general house duties.
Giving children a safe, nurturing environment in which they are able to learn how to use the tools required to build resilience is paramount. Strategies such as being able to say no, strategies to calm themselves when they are feeling stressed or anxious, calm areas, a timer, a talk buddy, a sprint, writing in a diary are tools which can assist in this. There are many ways that we can support children's self-confidence. It is important to recognise, praise and reward, in line with school policy, their achievements however small, celebrating even the small successes. Likewise it is just as important to accept that getting things wrong is okay and to understand how we can learn from our mistakes.
This does not mean that parents have no rights to what happens to their child while they are at school but this allows school to guide student behaviors though discipline. This idea is called in loco parentis (pg. 378). This concept was once more important in schools than it is now but it has brought forth it idea that no matter the student, disabled or not, there needs to be a certain level of responsibility put on all students for their behaviors when they are at school. This would be a great chapter of the book for parents to read because it would help them to understand why the school is doing what it is doing.
Spending time going through the learning activities and seeing how children have responded to a certain task or question, can really help change it for future activities. It is also important to look back at the learning objects so you can measure what the children have learned. It is important to have clear objectives at the planning stage, in order to evaluate whether pupils have achieved them after the lesson. If children have rushed through the activity and then looked bored then it would be obvious that the task was a bit too easy and not really suitable or beneficial for that group. Therefore you would need to try and make it more engaging and stimulating, perhaps by making it more difficult or time-consuming so the students really have to work to complete it.
It is also important that the class teacher uses a range of questions to draw attention to the display and encourage interaction. (016–K2) – How to protect the material on display from damage or theft. In order to protect the material on display from damage or theft, it is good practice to laminate the children’s works or pictures and to staple the display firmly in place. All the material items need to be labelled with the name of the person they belong to. It is also necessary to remind the children to not to fiddle with the material on display.
Students must feel safe and secure in their class in order to learn and grow in education. In order to control these types of behaviors the teacher must first recognize the misbehavior and handle it in a professional manner from the onset. Students learn from example as much as from example. Teacher set the example. They can do this by putting a stop to the disruption and using it as a learning experience for all the other students.
Help Improve Own and Team Practice in Schools Explain in detail how you would you would take note of children and young people's responses to your own practice: Take and note about you've interacted with children, how they've responded to you and if you can improve or better what happened in a similar situation in the future. It is always important to remember that children are not clones, some respond well to humour, some do not. Even sarcasm meant in the most light hearted manner to some children could be mistaken in some cases as a form of passive aggressiveness, therefore it is best avoided on a one to one basis. It is also important to remember that the people you are assisting are developing in life, some are more advanced than others and some are more sensitive than others. Children may laugh at bit of harmless humour delivered on a friendly manner if being spoken to as a group and it can also be helpful to speed their attention spans which will be on a varied level in every single class sometimes even on each end of the spectrum.
