HEALTH AND WELL BEING

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Candidate Name: Imama Khatoon Candidate Number: 4342 Centre Number: 27240 Unit 3 Positive Care Environments Health and Social Care A01 In this assignment I will be looking at the benefits that different types of activities have on the health and well-being of service user's. I will be gaining experience in planning, implementing and evaluating activities for service users. In order to complete this assignment I will produce a written report which will be relevant to an activity I will carry out at a care setting. To show evidence of this I will conduct some primary research by creating a questionnaire for the teacher to fill out. I will also ask for a teacher to observe what I am doing. The reason for this is so that the observer can note down how well I carried out my activity and what I could do to improve. This will be recorded in the witness statement which is attached to the back of this assignment. However if I use a video camera to gather this evidence the children may feel intimidated and might also found it difficult to concentrate on the task set. I will also use primary and secondary sources to gain knowledge about the needs of children and the benefits of certain activities within health care setting. The sources I have used to support my assignment are textbooks and the internet. Evidence of this is shown at the back of the assignment, in the bibliography. In my assignment I have chosen to carry out my activities in an early year setting, there are a range of activities that I can choose from when linking with this certain age group with young children; the setting I have chosen to work at is Wallace Road Nursery. In this assignment I will need to investigate the different types of activities suitable for service users in health care settings. ...read more.

I have decided to carry out my activity at Vernon Terrace Primary School. The reason for choosing this placement is that there are children of all sorts of ages which means I can easily relate it to my chosen target group. Also there are children from a range of different racial and cultural backgrounds. It is also a special school for deaf children which mean it will be helpful when evaluating the barriers that I came across during the activity. I will use the 'Stepping Stones' throughout the activity. These show the knowledge, skills, understanding and attitudes that children need to learn during the foundation stage in order to achieve the early learning goals. I will need to think about the potential hazards of my activity and how they can be minimised. One of the health and safety aspects that needed to be considered for my activity is that when the children put the play dough together, they will have to wear aprons in order to protect their clothing from stick bits. Another aspect was the use of safety scissors as these scissors have dull blades which are designed to protect the children and ensure that they do not cut themselves. I will also need to ensure that children do not put their fingers in their mouth just in case they have glue or paint on them. I have decided to carry out this activity on the Friday 27th March 2009, at about 12:30 sharp. I have chosen this date and time as this is the time I fixed with the staff at the chosen setting. This was a time available at the school for me to carry out my activity and it also fitted on my school timetable as it was during my free periods. I have decided to carry this activity out for about half an hour. I have chose to do so because if I just drag the time it will reduce the enthusiasm of the group so therefore I have decided to make it shorter. ...read more.

Conclusion

Children in all classes have taken part in school trips to support learning in the classroom. Children in year 5 and 6 have also been given a chance to pay a residential visit to the Peak District. The school also has a large number of visitors these have ranged from the Romans and Geeks to local hairdressers. Overall I feel that the activity went really well and according to my plan. The children really seemed to enjoy the activity as they looked very happy and the feedback from the teacher was also very good. This placement also benefited me whilst doing my coursework as it helped me communicate more with others. Throughout the whole experience I felt that I gained more confidence so now it is much easier for me to talk with people I don't know, next time I feel I will be much better. Questions for the one to one interview that I will carry out with a care practitioner at St David's Day Centre 1. What is your name? 2. What did you think of my activity? 3.

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

3 star(s)

This is a good essay but suffers slightly from poor continuity. There are a few errors that could have been corrected through proofreading. The writer has made a good attempt to evaluate their activity.

It could be expanded by adding more explanation, particularly in the method. The writer could also extend the evaluation in places.
