1.1 Identify the different reasons people communicate Children need to express their needs to share ideas and information they need to reassure how to build relationships and socialise. They need to ask questions and share their experiences. Communication is really important in order to establish and maintain relationships with children, we need to give and receive information and instructions, and we should understand and be understood to share our opinions, knowledge, feelings and emotions. We should give encouragement and show others that they are valued. Communication is an essential tool because the members of staff can use this to meet the needs of children because it is a basic requirement of a job role to communicate with individuals
301 – Communication and Professional Relationships with children, young people and adults 1.1 Effective communication is important relationship with young people children and adults is clear. This is done by putting in place and communicating about boundaries and what behaviour is acceptable. Expectations about behaviour relating to all people involved and how adults and young children are to deal with any problems they have. Communication in relation to the child and/or young person development has to be relayed to parents/carer they can help with the development of the child in there learning. 1.2 Relationship building is important when working with children and young people.
We provide a soft, cushioned area so that children can develop themselves physically without risk of hurting themselves. The theorist who theory is language development is B.F. Skinner. His theory is that children use cognitive behaviour when understanding and giving communication. They will use trial and error to get the right words out until they succeed. He believes that children observe adults and other children for the correct way to communicate and repeat the actions they have seen until they get it right.
1.1• describe how to establish respectful, professional relationships with children and Young people. When building relationships with children and young people it is important to adapt your behaviour and communication accordingly: Make sure the children know the ground rules and boundaries. Let children have the opportunity to put forward their own ideas and allow them to express themselves in their own time using their own words. Give children your full attention when working with them, which you can achieve through body language, facial expression, speech and gesture. Making sure you are listening to the children when they are talking, this will show them that you are interested and value their opinion.
It is important for pupils that we model effective communication skills, checking and being clear on what we may say and how it may be interpreted, in order for pupils to understand school expectations. If we, as professionals, do not behave in the same way that is expected of pupils, then it will be harder for them to accept boundaries, which, in turn could lead to a breakdown in communication. Some pupils that struggle with their learning and/or have confidence issues may find that they can’t communicate with all of us, therefore, treating that pupil in a calm, positive, praising and gentle manner could mean the difference between them trusting us or closing down and giving up. I believe that children should be spoken to the way I would want to be spoken to by others and that negative comments or tones would hurt my feelings, so to talk to a child with issues in this manner is extremely damaging. I also take this stand when talking to adults that I work with or children’s parents.
They use language to explore their own experiences and imaginary worlds.” (http://www.education.gov.uk/schools/teachingandlearning/curriculum/primary/b00198874/english/ks1) The National Curriculum gives practitioners/teachers guidance on what a child should lean and be able to do by the end of Key Stage one. During English lessons the children will learn how to communicate confidently and effectively, this will help the development of their communication and language while developing some of the key aspects to their Literacy. Communication is the art of interactions with
Make sure that if someone is talking, you are giving them your full attention. You need to give the children your full attention and this may mean finding a quiet space so that you can actively listen to them without distractions from the others. Empathy is a great skill to hold whilst talking to children/young people because it helps us share their pain and to see the world through their eyes, when we do it often changes the decisions we make or actions we take. Give them the chance to speak or express themselves. In my environment during circle time/general chat sessions we use a talking stick where only the person holding the stick may talk and unless you are, you listen.
In order that we can make people understand our views and opinions we need a clear and vivid explanation. When we explain something communication takes place. When we want to express our needs we are communicating with others. Like a child he cried to express if he was hungry or nappy is wet and heavy. We communicate when we want to develop learning.
The ability to evaluate children’s learning to identify possible learning difficulties. A willingness to support and commit to the school and it’s strive for continual improvement. An ability to tackle unfamiliar situations using problem solving skills, enjoy working with children, have a well-developed imagination and be creative.

One has to have effective communication skills in order to be able to gain the trust and respect in working environment. It is very important to establish a good rapport with children, their parents and work colleagues. These communication skills are vital when working with children and young people: - being patient - listen carefully - remembering names, personal preferences etc - using body language effectively, use open posture - actively listening - maintaining a good eye contact all the time - sensitively using certain keywords - showing warmth, understanding, sincerity, positive values of others etc Let’s see an example. In a classroom we have a child who was born abroad and their parents don’t speak good English and have different cultural
