Expressing thoughts and ideas – in order to encourage children and young adults to talk about what they learned and what they think, or encourage them to express themselves imaginatively, communication skills are also needed. Effective communication is also needed when giving and receiving support. Very often children and young adults need reassurance and comforting, and it is very important how professionals use their communication skills to build child’s self- confidence. It is also important to reward child’s or young persons efforts by giving them time and
We would also like to observe the children doing a variety of language and literacy activities and also observe them communicating with other children. We would obviously like your permission to do this.

Unit 010 - Support Children and Young People's Positive Behavior 1.1 - Describe the policies and procedures of the setting relevant to promoting children and young people's positive behavior In the setting relevant, the policies and procedures in promoting children and young peoples positive behavior is stated clearly on page 6 of the policies and procedures. The setting relevant has made it their aim to provide an environment for children to feel happy and stimulated, in order to prevent any child feeling unhappy or behaving inappropriately. In order to do this, part of their policy is to praise children for good behavior on a regular basis. Staff may see a child tidying up nicely as asked by them, in which case the staff member will praise the child for tidying up by thanking the child and saying "good tidying". The child will respond well to this and they are likely to repeat the action to gain the praise from a staff member.
Seeing things from the child’s point of view will help towards a positive relationship in a way that they will feel respected and understood. Therefore allowing the child to feel open to talk to me telling me how they feel or what they don’t like which helps when getting them to take part in different activities, controlling any behavior problems and to create a nice atmosphere to work in and for the children to learn and strive. To build and maintain positive relationships I use different body language and expressions to suit each child in order for them to understand what I am asking of them and likewise what they expect of me, I pay close attention to how they are reacting to any situation so as I can understand the different characters of each child. To help improve their confidence and communication skills it is important that I give the children enough time to try and explain themselves, what they are asking for or when taking part in a task not to rush them or jump ahead and do it for them, taking in to account their age and ability level. Getting down to the same level as the children whether it be sitting on the floor or around the classroom table is also another way I feel works well to build a positive relationship as they feel we are both equal and shows respect towards the children rather than
Positive relationships enable information to be communicated far more effectively. Working in a school this will benefit pupils when you are dealing with parents or carers as they will be more willing to get involved in the child or young person’s education and care. Building and maintaining positive relationships and effective communication with pupils will help them know and understand what is expected of them and acceptable boundaries. In order to develop positive relationships with children, young people and adults effective communication is vital. To effectively communicate we must: • think consciously (everyone is an individual) • explain (be clear, use appropriate language) • listen actively ( occasional nods and eye contact) • be true to our word (say what you mean, mean what you say) • recall (repeat snippets of what has been said to you) • have empathy (non-bias understanding of others situations) • clarify and question (ask the other party if they understand what you have said ) • body language (your own and reading the other persons) Not putting the above skills into practice will create barriers to effective communication and positive
Positive messages about their families, background, cultures and languages help children to develop pride in who they are. These messages also give them confidence to voice their views and opinions, to make choices, and to help shape their learning. The book ‘Possum Magic’ would be appropriate for Stage 1 (Year 1) students. I feel for the desired outcome this is a great age for building confident exercises and to help develop the child’s identity and to introduce an open mind thinking. 2.
TDA31-1.1Explain why effective communication is important in developing positive relationships with children, young people and adults. Effective communication is fundamental in building positive relationships with children, young people and adults alike. When working with children, young people and adult’s communication is the most important thing to building a positive relationship. Having good communication skills will help us develop better relationships especially with younger people. Some students who lack in confidence may find it hard to communicate at all with us, so if we come across to that student in a positive and gentle manner they are more likely to open up to us and talk.
Unit 13 1.1 Personal, Social and Emotional Development-: We are helping children to develop a positive sense of themselves and others, and to form positive relationships and develop respect for others. We help them to develop social skills and learn how to manage their feelings, to understand appropriate behavior in groups and to have confidence in their own ability. Physical Development-: Providing opportunities for young children to be active and interactive and to develop their coordination, control, and movement. We help children to understand the importance of physical activity and to make healthy choices in relation to food. Communication and Language Development-: We are providing children with opportunities to experience a rich language environment, to help develop their confidence and skills in expressing themselves, and to speak and listen in a range of situations.
It also helps your child to make connections in their thinking and the way in which problem are solved. This is also going to help your child to develop their self- esteem and self-confidence and also their imagination. Creative development will also improve their learning as children will be able to work together in groups and as a team. Creativity is about taking risks and making connections. It is a way of transforming things using media and materials such as paint, scissors, words, sounds, movement and props.
You also need to make sure you have good relationships with other staff members so that it can be a friendly place for the children to be around. It is important to have positive relationships with all the people that are involved in the care of all children and young people in my setting . These people could be staff, Managers and supervisors, carers/parents, OFSTED, Early years, or external partners. All positive relationships with these people will benefit the child as we could share the information quickly and accurately give constant care and always identify their needs and there interests. We could make more effective plans for their care and education whilst monitoring there welfare to show their skills and ideas.
