Pictures: Pictures are used alongside words to make communication more easier and understandable. In fact in my placement school, the reading scheme that is used starts the children off with ‘picture only’ books so the children are encouraged to talk about the pictures in the book and make their own story up and ask questions. Technology: Computer programmes (apps and games), interactive whiteboard, story tapes, cds are all ways of stimulating a child’s communication development. These days a lot of programmes are interactive and children can hear and respond to different applications made specially to help develop their
Even when you are cuddling, playing, singing and talking with your child it all helps develop their brains. Young children find it easy to learn more than one language. As soon as they hear Welsh or any other language, they begin to pick up words and phrases. When they first start school they have the confidence to be able to perform in front of their classmates and teachers when it comes to singing. Children also have the amazing ability to be able to use their imagination and create their own stories to improve their own vocabulary by themselves or with friends and via play it allows them to begin the basic key steps into using literacy.
When children begin to learn from the programs they watch, by taking what they watched and using it in their daily life. For an example, on Yo Gabba Gabba the characters sing songs about friendship and manners. This is teaching children how to make friends and how to be polite. Cognitive development is encouraged when Steve; from Blue’s Clues draws clues from Blue’s paw print. This is teaching children how to be creative.
Developmentally Appropriate: This activity is developmentally appropriate because reading with children enhance their language and literacy skills.

They may also start to use words and actions in mock of other people. Playing with children is still exceedingly important at this stage and some children embark on to make close friendships. Also at this time, children start to play with members of the same gender, which may link to their understanding of masculinity and femininity roles. D3) Describe ONE (1) suitable method of observing and recording the social development of children aged 5 years A suitable method of observing would be using a checklist. This method needs a little preparation so a prepared checklist would be necessary.
7 areas of learning – Prime Areas There are 7 areas of learning in the EYFS these can also be known as The Early Learning Goals, they are the following; Communication and Language Listening and Attention; Children listen attentively in a range of situations. Children listen to stories, accurately anticipating key events and respond to what they hear with relevant comments, questions or actions. Children give their attention to what others are saying and respond appropriately, while engaged in another activity. Understanding; Children follow instructions involving several ideas or actions. Children answer ‘how’ and ‘why’ questions about their experience and in response to stories or events.
First small step is for the child to sit with one or two other children. When this is achieved slowly add more children to the group. This way you are teaching the child a new skill but ensuring success. This may also be a target for the Individual Education Plan. Praise and rewards This ensures everyone is praising the child when they are working towards their new

Wilkinson states that these assessment aspects arose from an ‘interaction between our perceptions of the written materials, teachers’ judgements and theoretical considerations’ (Wilkinson, A., Barnsley, G. P., Hanna, P., & Swan, M., 1980). It is here that Wilkinson’s model of children’s development in writing is particularly helpful as it shows that the child has developed their quality of thought in a cognitive capacity; the child shows an awareness of the world and an ability to describe, interpret, generalise and speculate on it (Winch et al, 2010). Other ways that teachers may help children to expand on their development are through the use of VELS speaking and listening standards. Where students are given opportunities to use spoken language appropriately in a variety of classroom contexts, ask and answer simple questions for information and clarification and to produce brief spoken texts that deal with familiar ideas and information (VCAA, 2006). The ability of a child to draw on cognitive thought and view the world around them relates to the Piagetian Theory of child development.
