From 4-7 years a child will able to control a pencil, form letters, copy shapes and write more fluently. They should be able to button their own clothing and dress independently. Improvement in gross motor skills include jumping, running quickly and riding a bicycle. 7-9 years. Between 7 and 9 a child’s writing will become neater and they will read easier.
By the age of one; they have a lot more control over their bodies. In this stage, they are beginning to crawl, shuffle, pull or push on things to stand. Between 1 and 2 years walking will begin and toys will be pulled or pushed along whilst walking. They enjoy attempting to feed themselves with finger foods. Waving goodbye becomes fun they will begin to point to what they want and shake their head to mean ‘no’.
A baby at one month needs plenty of cuddles and physical contact, frequent feeds of milk (day and night), opportunities to sleep and eye contact with smiles and gentle handling. Then, at three months a baby will need opportunities to watch others, their head will still need supporting when they are carried, and, the child will still need to be handled gently and take regular milk feeds. Babies at six months are more mobile and will need times when they can lie on their stomachs and backs with chances to explore toys and objects. We find babies at nine months start to explore these objects with their mouth and hands, and, they tend to use their fingers to feed, therefore needing opportunities to feed themselves. Babies at one year need as much as the same as they do at nine months, although you will find they are able to stand on their own whilst holding onto furniture and will start to interact with a little more understanding, such as waving good bye.
Communication and speech development: this is learning to communicate with friends, family and all others. It is important to remember that all the areas of development link together. From being a tiny helpless being at birth, by the age of 19 years, children change to highly complex young people who have all the basic skills for life, including talking, running, writing and the ability to think in academic ways. From being relatively immobile babies, children are able to walk, run, skip and climb. From not being able to talk, children become capable communicators.
Between the ages of 1 and 2 a child will normally be walking, pulling themselves up on furniture and pulling/pushing toys. Aged 2 to 3 years they will learn how to hold a pencil in the correct way and turn marks on paper into scribbles, towers will be built with bricks and balls will be kicked. As they go from 3 years to 7 years their physical skills are normally improving and they are becoming more confident, climbing, running and jumping. Also dressing themselves becomes an easier task. As they grow hand eye coordination gets better and threading small beads onto string becomes easier.
Physical Devolpment 0-3 years This is a stage where devolpemnt happens very quickly. With babies not having much control over their bodies when they are first born, to learning to have more control over there bodies. When they are first born babies movements depend on a series of reflexes. These include sucking and grasping which are vital things they would need to survive. Over the first 12 months they will learn more to control their bodies and by 12 months most babies should have devolped to the point where they should be able to crawl or roll.
By Megan Wyne. Communication and Language The early year’s foundation stage is spilt up into different category but I’m going to talk about communication and language with in this there are three different areas they are called: * Listening and attention * Understanding * Speaking The age group of each category very this is because every child grows and learn slower or faster to others. The age range of the communication and language are: * Birth – 11 Months * 8 – 20 Months * 16 – 26 Months * 22 – 36 Months * 30 – 50 Months * 40 – 60 Months Listening and attention: * Birth – 11 Months: They should react to interaction with others by smiling, looking and moving they also should listen to familiar sounds, words or finger play. * 8

1.1a Describe the expected pattern of children and young people’s development from birth to 19 years to include physical development: Physical development of children and young people can be often assumed that it will come automatically as they grow and mature. Some children grow and mature at different paste and this sometimes may cause some to behave differently. 0-3years This is a rapid development period where they have very little control of their movements. This is hinge on series of reflex which is needed to survive. In the first year they steadily starting to more control over their body such as rolling and crawling.
