Social and Emotional development for children aged three to five is very important for every child's development in these are being met at this time of life as this is when they start to become aware of who they call their friends and who are is there all the time and who is not.

For example holding scissors while cutting paper may be a difficulty, maybe trying something softer such as play dough could help. B1 Reflect on the implications for practice of the assessment of children through observation. Observations are only of value if they have been carefully carried out and then time is spent evaluating and analyzing the information. According to 'how to observe children' which is a book written by S Riddall-Leech says that observations, assessments and decision making is a process which is very many professionals students and also parents observe as they want to know more about the child's development. On the other hand the reliability may not be correct as the child may not have tried their best on that observation as they may have been tired, upset, hungry and so on which may off had an effect on the child's reactions during the activity.
