Module 4FD028 - Introduction The aim of this module is to show an understanding of the key concepts and approaches in Early Years provision and practice. By reflecting on how these are applied in practice, evaluating the impact on children’s learning and development and the practitioner’s role. The notion of ‘quality’ and the impact of one key concept on the child’s development and providing quality provision and practice will be discussed. Namely Transition from an Early years setting into a school environment for the first time paying particular attention to the role of the adult and the impact on the child’s well-being. In the developing field of Early Years, it is becoming more and more important for practitioners to have an awareness of the many topics that impact on the provision available to young children.
EDU10002 Understanding Language and Literature Assessment 1 There are many theoretical perspectives explaining how children develop and acquire language. Two well recognised cognitive psychologists, Jean Piaget and Lev Vygotsky, developed theories that addressed cognitive development and learning among children. Both theorists explore the development of a child’s way of thinking and examine the processes in how these developmental stages occur and impact on a child’s acquisition of language. Whilst there are similarities between the two theories, there are also significant differences. Language acquisition is the cognitive process where humans acquire the ability to perceive and comprehend language, as well as to produce and use words and sentences to communicate with one another (Friederici 2011).
Shereatta Willis Kaplan University PS220 Unit 9 Assignment Early childhood development is defined as ,a set of concepts, principles, and facts that explain, describe and account for the processes involved in change from immature to mature status and functioning (Bukatko, 2008),development is also generally divided into three broad categories, physical development, cognitive development, and social emotional development. Physical development addresses any change in the body, including how children grow, how they move, and how they perceive their environment. Cognitive development pertains to the mental processes like, language, memory, and problem solving, that children use to acquire and use knowledge. Emotional and social development addresses how children handle relationships with others, as well as understand of their own feelings. Physical development in children follows a directional pattern, large muscles develop before small muscles, legs and arms develop before those in the fingers and hands, and children learn how to perform gross ,or large motor skills such as walking before they learn to perform fine ,or small, motor skills such as drawing.
Social and emotional developement. Learning to live with others in both family and society is generally one of the most important part's of development, family and friend's play an important part towards this. The socialisation is all about learning to cope in the family and society we live in. The socailisation process will by it's definition vary in diffrent societies and from family to family. Primary socialisation take's place with in the family,in the first years of a childs life.
Gaining experience understanding and responding to the emotions of others. ➢ Co-operating with others ➢ Learning about the feelings of others ➢ Taking in turns/sharing ➢ Developing social skills ➢ Developing self-esteem and self-expression Communication and intellectual – Expressing themselves and understanding what others say, reading and writing. ➢ Decision making ➢ Developing creative and imaginative skills ➢ Using language to explain reasoning ➢ Using skills in different ways ➢ Problem solving 1.1 Expected pattern of children and young peoples development from birth to 19 |Ages |Physical Development |Social, emotional and behavioural development |Communication and intellectual development | |(Years) | | |
The sequence of development is a pattern in which a child develops from infancy, through childhood and into adulthood, these are usually categorized in two ways: personal factors: factors that are specific to a child such as: disabilty, health status, impairment, learning difficulty, bereavment etc. and... external factors: factors that effect the child externally: poverty and deprivation, family enviroment or background, personal choices, care status, education etc. development starts from when a child is born upto the age of 19, the aspects of development are: physical, communication, intellectual/ cognitive, social, emotional, behavioural and moral. The rate of development is the pace a child develops and grows at. These principals are taken into all accounts through all areas of development from mental to physical to intellectual and emotional maturity.
These two ways are the processes in which we interconnect with the environment. Assimilation is the process of taking in new information and fitting it into and making it part of an existing mental idea about objects or the world. Accommodation refers to changing and existing mental idea in order to fit new information. The four stages of cognitive development are Sensorimotor stage (birth- two years) In this stage infants construct their understanding of the world by coordinating sensory experiences such as vision and touch with motor abilities. At the same time as a child begins to crawl they discover the idea of object permanence.
It is through the talk that learning occurs. There are many approaches to collaborative learning: 1. Learning is an active process whereby learners assimilate the information and relate this new knowledge to a framework of prior knowledge. 2. Learning requires a challenge that opens the door for the learner to actively engage his/her peers, and to process and synthesize information rather than simply memorize and regurgitate it.
1) Identify the areas of child development and write briefly about each one. Child development is a process every child goes through, and each stage of development child is learning in several areas at the same time. Children develop these skills in five main areas of development: S - Social development P- Physical development I - Intellectual development C- Communication development E- Emotional development Social Development: It involves the development of the social skills of the child, how child interacts with others. The child’s identity, their relationships with others and understanding their place within a social environment. Physical Development: As the child grows change occurs in their bodies in mean of body shape, their strength to do the different task, the change in size, shape, and physical maturity of the body which includes physical abilities and coordination.
