The setting that I am attending is an Infant/nursery school, which is located in an urban town in the West Midlands. It caters for 260 children age between 3-7 years 11 months. I will carry out the activities in the reception classroom which also has an outdoor area.

states "cuts out shapes using scissors quite accurately". E10/D1 The resource in E7 has supported the children's learning by the children looking at the Easter card that had already been made, so they new what they had to do and where about they had to stick the chick on the card, where the eyes went and so on. I know the learning has taken place because the children made the card and also took part in singing the rhymes and songs. In activity 1 the aim was for the children to develop their creative skills by exploring different materials and to learn to take turns and share. The aim has been met because all the children were sharing and taking turns and they were able to explore and learn about different materials. When making the cards children were in groups of 4 and they were sharing the equipment and taking turns to share the glue and scissors. This show's the learning outcomes in E8 have been achieved by doing this activity. From the singing activity nearly all the children were able to learn the words of the songs, they listened to me when I was saying the words and were repeating after me. This shows the learning outcomes in E8 have been met for singing rhymes and songs. The aims have also been met for singing activity as all the children were using their cognitive development to learn the songs and rhymes. All the children took part and joined in with the singing, this show the aims have been met for the activity. ...read more.


I have learnt that being well organised will benefit me and the children as they can go and get the resources themselves of their own choice for example toys off the shelf. Also by being well organised you know were everything is kept. In future I would ensure that I am well organised so I don't make errors or mistakes also so that I don not waste my time or the children's. More learning that has taken place for me is that I now understand how important communication is. I have recognised that good communication skills are vital in order for you to interact with the children. Also by speaking in a calm way and supporting the children whilst they learn may boost their self esteem. Also I have learnt that children have differentiated learning styles such as visual and auditory. This is vital to keep in mind when planning. Some children learn differently, this may be because they have difficulties or illnesses. I have learnt that good team work benefits everyone within the setting and also the children's parents. I have also learnt about planning and how to plan for a child's individual needs. To meet a child's individual needs, is important because if you don't this may be the reason why your plan was unsuccessful. In future practice I will ensure that I have planned to meet the children's individual needs. More knowledge that I have gained about curriculum planning is that I have deepened my understanding about the planning cycle which is planning, implementing and reviewing/evaluating. ...read more.

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

4 star(s)

This is a good essay that looks at 2 activities in a care setting. The writer has described them well and it is clear what is involved.

The work could be enhanced in several ways - by discussing how it benefits the children, relating it to a little bit more theory and developing explanations through out.
