Introduction

Unit 5: The principles underpinning the role of the practitioner working with children P5.1 During placement I worked as part of a team, during the morning before the children arrived, during dinner time and at the end of the day. During the morning I helped the other staff set up the different areas. The area I set up was the messy area and the water area. We decided who was going to set up which areas and what to put in each area. I set up the water area with the help a teaching assistant; I poured water into the water tray whilst the teaching assistant got the washing up liquid to pour into the water and a couple of whisks. The aim of this task was that the children could make bubbles using the whisk or using their hands, they could then feel the texture of the bubbles. During Dinner time we all worked as part of a team as we had to decide who put the plates out, who prepared the meal, who washes up, and who sits with the children. ...read more.

During guided reading we sat in the reading area and the children each picked a book that they wanted me to read to them. The first book I read to the children was called 'Goldilocks and the three bears' the children enjoyed this classic book as it was fun to read and had lots of pictures that the children enjoyed looking at. I was also asked to plan and prepare snack time. I planned for snack time for the children to have vegetable pizza, low fat yogurt, oranges and bananas. I prepared the snack by putting the pizza in the oven to cook whilst I put the oranges in a bowl; I left the orange peel on, so that the children can learn to peel them, themselves, I then peeled the bananas and chopped them in half and put them in a bowl. I then checked the pizza, once they pizza was cooked. I chopped the pizza into small triangles and gave the food to them. ...read more.

Conclusion

I thought that it would be an exciting and fun theme for the children. I provided feedback to a practitioner when I planned and prepared snack. The preparation went good and the children enjoyed what was given to them. P5.4 If I was to read a book to the children I could use puppets to make the story more fun instead of just reading the book. I could also ask some of the children to say some of the lines as this would get the children involved and they will be more interested in the story. I could also use facial expressions and hand gestures so the children may feel a sense of excitement or feel when a character in the story is angry or sad. During the planning and preparing snack I could get the children involved with preparing snack as I could give the children a choice in what snack they want and also whilst preparing snack I could give them a plastic knife and they can cut their own bananas or they can help baking buns. ?? ?? ?? ??
