The framework focuses on ‘learning through play’ and states that by the age of five children should be able to do such things as write their own name, count up to ten and understand that people have different needs, views and beliefs. There are many arguments for and against the Early Years Foundation Stage framework. Some people believe that children will be forced into academic work too early and others believe that childminders and nurseries should be responsible for making sure that children have reached a certain standards before they begin school. Frameworks such as the Early Foundation Stage framework usually come into effect after vast amounts of research into the issue. There are many psychologists who have carried out research into early learning and the importance of play.
Their concern for others coexists with aggressive and self-centered impulses, which occasionally interfere with effective interactions. Middle Childhood (6-10 Years) Middle childhood is a time of sustained attention to real-world tasks. Children start to form serious commitments to peers. Friendships are important, and children learn a lot from interactions with friends and resolutions of disputes. Children start comparing their performance to others, start to internalize many prohibitions they’ve heard repeatedly, and they start to fain a sense of what is expected of them, and most want to live up to those expectations.
By 8 months of age, object of permanence begin to emerge because infants begin to develop memory for objects that are not perceived (Myers, 2013). 1c. Piaget further explains that after object permanence emerged, children at 8 months start to develop stranger anxiety where they would often cry in front of strangers and reach for someone who is familiar to them (Myers, 2013). Both object permanence and stranger anxiety emerge around the same time because children are able to remember and build schemas. While Piaget’s cognitive theory consists of four stages (sensorimotor, preoperational, concrete operational, and formal operational) that children go through as they grow, McCrink and Wynn proposed a different theory of cognitive development.
However, majority of Ella’s sentences tend to omit sentence elements such as ‘nanny and David gonna look after me tomorrow’, the auxiliary verb ‘are’ is omitted. From this we can establish that Ella has the ability to construct sentences, however she has not learnt the function and use of certain sentence components. Moreover, Noam Chomsky a specialist linguist identified five stages of language acquisition; he noted that between two to three years of age a child is at the telegraphic stage. This stage consists of the child producing a larger number of utterances using strings of words to form phrases or sentences. Although, the child demonstrates some capability of sentence building, the capacity to construct
This is reflected when a child's writing ability increases throughout years of schooling because of the neurological growth that occurs (McDevitt & Ormrod, 2004, p. 22). It is also obvious as a child hits puberty, and the child's body starts to physically mature. Psychodynamic perspectives theorize that when children and young adults face social decisions they are directed by the impulses presented by sexuality and aggression, but they are also led by a need for social contribution and acceptance (McDevitt & Ormrod, 2004, p. 22). Through many different stages children learn to use their impulses in a way that is constructive to society (McDevitt & Ormrod, 2004, p. 22). This concept is exemplified when a student hits another student, or lashes out at teachers or parents.
Unit 331 learning outcome 1 Child and young person development Physical development | Communication development | Social, emotional, behavioural and moral development | Birth to 3 years | New born babies depend on reflexes such as suckling, crying and grasping. By the 1st year they gain more control and are usually rolling over and crawling. By age 2 years they learn how to pull themselves up and begin to walk and talk. They begin to hold small things and attempt to sell feed and dress themselves, as well experience climbing and playing with a lot more choice of toys. | They have eye contact and smile, crying and they react to tone of voice.

Ages 4 to 6 the child gains an average of about six pounds growing about two inches. It is obvious that as the child grows fast the food intake will be more and as the growth rate slows the food intake is less; either way they calorie intake is less regardless of the amount of food that is consumed. As a child grows older their rate of growth will go down while ingesting fewer calories
i.e. emotional reactions involve the whole body in babies but when the child is older these responses may only involve facial expressions. Milestones Milestones mark the achievement of certain mental and physical abilities such as walking or being able to form a sentence, and signal the end of one developmental period and the beginning of another. Researchers who have studied the accomplishment of many developmental tasks have determined the typical ages that are associated with each developmental milestone. However, they have also found that the time spans in which some milestones are achieved can vary, with some milestones being more variable than others Following is a general guide to how children develop within the following age ranges: 0-3 years 3-7 years 7-12 years 12-16 years 16-19 years Development – Ages
an appropriate size/shaped rattle. He/she learn to roll from side on to back and try to lift head, he/she also needs opportunities to play and exercise with items such as soft toys, cloth books and a play matt with different textures and sounds to help progress their physical development, their grasp reflex diminishes as hand and eye coordination begins to develop. Communication and intellectual development at 0 to 3 months. He/she will start to recognise familiar voices and stop crying when hearing them, they are more likely to recognise their parents voice and concentrate on them rather than unfamiliar ones, he/she are also aware of other sounds and will turn their head toward the sound. A baby of this age will respond to smiles and will move their whole body in response to sound/ to attract attention, he/she sees everything in relation to their self this is know as Egocentric.
