Stepping away from the situation until the child has calmed down; there are many things that can be taught early that will be more effective then teaching them at a required by the courts class at the age of 39. These skills contribute to positive social development because they teach children that emotions are okay to feel, and okay to display, but you have to display them in the correct way, otherwise they are not heard. 2. 鼎reate a supportive milieu in the class, school and community so that children reinforce each other for positive behavior.

Child development theories support planning for learning and play in child care settings. Tina Bruce’s child development theories “favour a holistic approach to teaching young children which focuses on creativity, play and first-hand experiences.” (Pound. L, 2009, pg.13) She believes that free-flow play is important for children as it promotes their independence and allows them to make choices and also make mistakes. This allows them to learn from these mistakes and enhance their learning. Bruce states that “The importance of opportunities to act as independent learner, making choices and mistakes with an emphasis on self-motivation.” (Pound.
It is also important for the children that we model effective communication skills, this means checking what we are saying in moments of stress or excitement, we ask the children to behave in a certain way when communicating and sometimes forget that ourselves if we do this they will struggle to understand the boundaries of what is acceptable. Effective communication does just not happen though, we need to constantly think about how we are coming across, how we relate to others and the messages we send out. In situations where communication breaks down, this can lead to misunderstandings and bad feelings. The principles of relationship building with adults, children and young people are that if they are comfortable in our company they will be more likely to communicate with us, where people do not get along they are more likely to avoid one another wherever possible and they might even be suspicious of one another. Positive relationships should not just be left to chance, it is important that we develop them, we build relationships every day without necessarily thinking about it but we do need consider whether we do everything possible to make that great relationship.

Ways include- The words and levels of language adult’s use with children (including the use of questions) Use language that is age and stage appropriate.

Unit 3 Question 2 E5: Describe TWO (2) strategies which the setting may use to empower children to develop independence and self-reliance The importance of children’s communication skills In terms of empowering children, communications skills are critical. Being able to communicate helps children express their needs and feelings and make friendships with other children. Some children who experience difficulties in managing their behaviour are likely to have difficulties communicating. This means that helping children gain communication skills should be a major focus of your work with them. Communication skills used by children helps children to express their feelings, manage their anger, helps to negotiate with others, helps to understand the feelings of others, and also helps children respond appropriately to others.
The common assessment framework and how it relates to safeguarding children. The common assessment is a generic, holistic assessment. It aims to: Enable at an earlier stage, a wider picture of a child or young person’s needs and strengths to be built up and, with appropriate consent, shared among carers. Improve communication and integrated working between carers supporting a child or young person (including communication between a young person and adult services). Improve decisions about whether further specialist assessment is required and, if necessary, provide information to contribute to it.
Unit 209 Support children and young people behaviour How you could be an effect role model to children and young people In your placement in the school I believe I could be an effective role model by setting a good example to the children I work with. As studies have shown, children learn more from copying behaviour around them, rather than just being told what to do. Children are mostly influenced by teachers, parents, friends and support workers. All the adults should be aware of their own behaviour and mannerism, and the effect could have on the children. Children can pick up behaviour and attitudes from adults from around them .For this reason, I feel my appearance must always be presentable and my clothes should be appropriate to wear in a school setting.
Katarzyna Bubacz EYMP2 Task1 Explain each of the areas of development and how these are independent. There are three areas of learning.

Describe, in your own words, the term ‘’goodness of fit’’ and how ‘’goodness of fit’’ might aid teachers in selecting strategies to support children as they develop their ability to self-regulate. Goodness of fit is the compatibility between environment and a child’s temperament, inability of fit occurs when temperament is not respected and accommodated, teacher can improve the goodness of fit by adapting her approach to meet the needs of the child, and in order to select a better strategies to support children teachers first need to understand and recognize each child
2002). The Play Policy Implementation Plan states that, what is needed is to ‘respond positively by extending the range of environments and opportunities available for children’s play, while continuing to have due regard for their physical and psychological wellbeing‘ (Better Regulation Commission, 2006). In my view, it is very important that we teach children skills that will help them in managing dangers and risk for themselves. Giving children the opportunity to experience a certain level of risk will help them to develop confidence and competence to take their own balanced approach to risk taking. Children should be allowed to play and explore in a safe environment and make decisions about risk with the help of an adult.
