Introduction E1 – There are many national frameworks and policies for the development of communication, language and literacy skills for children aged 3-8 years. Some of these include: * The Early Years Foundation Phase The Early Years Foundation Phase says that children will develop their communication, language and literacy skills through talking, signing, communicating and listening. It also says that children should be encouraged to communicate with others to tell them what they need, how they feel and be able to retell their past experiences. They say that children will ask questions, voice and express their opinions, react to situations and make their own choices. They will also be encouraged to listen to and respond to others.
You need to encourage the use of good manners please, thankyou, etc and deter bad manners and behaviour by talking to the child in question and telling them how they need to behave. 1.2 Describe with examples how to behave appropriately for a child or young person’s stage of development. Year 1 children are just starting with lessons so they need to be told how to sit and listen to what they are being told so they know what they need to do to complete the task in hand. In Phonics you need to sound out the sounds and words, see how the children get on spelling the word and then help them by sounding the word out again or breaking the sounds down so they can hear the letter sounds easier. When they get it right let them know they have got it correct.
(Beith.K et al,Pg.2, Level 2 certificate for the Children and young people’s workforce, 2010, Heinemann, Harlow) When I work with children I communicate with children and young people to build relationships, verbal or non-verbal communication may be used to help children and young people feel welcome and valued, and to co-ordinate activities. Effective communication is required for children and young people to encourage positive behaviour and K.Beith states that practitioners will communicate “to give instructions to children so that they understand what is required of them in routines and activities, such as emergency practices and outings” (Beith.K et al,Pg.3, Level 2 certificate for the Children and young people’s workforce, 2010, Heinemann, Harlow) Early years practitioners communicate regularly with parents to build relationships and to share information. Communication between parents and practitioners can help the setting provide adequate care and provision for their children. Early years practitioners also communicate with parents to give them information about the setting
These interactions allow individuals to make sense of the world, shaping ideas and beliefs and providing the opportunity to use language to express thoughts. Figure 4.S depicts a typical experience where the practitioner supports children to express their ideas. Bruner suggested that meaning making included not only how children make sense of the world but also how they understand themselves. He referred to both constructing Interactionist theory. meaning and processing of information as a way of understanding development.
2. Cite examples of how language awareness fosters school-age children’s language progress Verbal communication and language awareness is important and it plays a major role in developing their brains, connections and is crucial to development in young children. Daily reading, writing as well as language based plays improve their listening, speaking and language skills and also to help cope with issues such as social or emotional problems. 3. List some teaching practices that foster children’s achievement and some that undermine it.
1.1 The ability to communicate or understand and use speech is vital for all areas of development in children and young people. As language and speech develops in young people, they learn how to express themselves and their needs hence the ability to control their emotions. In ability to express ones' self often result in display of behaviour as a physical reaction to their feelings in proportion to how they feel regarding the situation at hand. Behaviour shows a measure of control or the lack of it. Behaviour therefore whether positive or negative becomes a means of expressing either displeasure or approval from the one displaying it as a means of communicating.
Support Individuals with Specific Communication Needs Explain the importance of meeting an individuals communication needs. Individuals who have learning difficulties or hearing problems need special attention and support to help them express themselves effectively. It is therefore imperative for the carer to know the individual's preferred method of communication. The way you communicate with one person will be different from the way you communicate with another. Likewise, each of them will interact with you in different ways.
Structured approaches There are lots of ways adults can help children and young adults through transitions, the age/stage of the child is an important factor to the professionals, these are usually :- bereavement consolers, play therapists, parents and voluntary organisations. Play activities Many types of play activities that can help children except or come to terms with what may be happening to them and are an aid in getting them to “open up”. Play activities can include sand and play dough and water. Books and stories Books can be a big help with children and their transitions as they can help them to
This means they are learning to communicate with others. The child must understand the word to then string a sentence along, which makes sense. This also means they will be able to use grammar and put words in the right order. Language is a recognised structured system of gestures signs and symbols used to communicate. These symbols can be used in various ways; they can be spoken, written or signed.
When we work with infants at nursery to help them with basics vocabulary and numeracy we need to choose media that will help them understand. Small children will remember songs, words and rhymes. Infants learn by looking, hearing and touching. They pay attention to voices, music and rattles. Patience is the most important skill.
