Extracts from this document...

Introduction

´╗┐Unit 4 ? Draft assignment. Children & Play. D1 ? Children might play in a number of settings. This could be a school classroom, a local park or a school playground. For ages 4+, the stage of play is called cooperative play and this is when all of the children play together and decide what they want to play. Play becomes more complex. D2 ? One type of play that may take place in a childcare setting is creative play. Creative pay involves children doing things themselves. For example, role play, painting, and dressing up.

Imaginary play happens when children use their imaginations to create pretend and make-believe scenarios. Children can engage in this type of play using small toy figures, puppets, dolls, or stuffed animals for example. Creative play can be demonstrated through arts and crafts. This helps children develop fine motor skills and eye-hand coordination. It also allows children to feel proud of themselves. D5 ? Margaret McMillan believed that children should have firsthand experience and active learning. She also felt that children could develop into a whole person through play. She believed that children can?t learn if they are unnourished, poorly, sick, with poor teeth, infections etc. She says that ?children learn by exploring and that they achieve their whole potential through play?. ...read more.

Conclusion

You could allow a child to use a piece of equipment that is difficult to use. They will understand that there is a danger using a piece of equipment that is not suitable for their age range. D7 ? When in a childcare setting, you must show diversity and inclusive practice at all times. This is important because every child matters. Childcare workers should not discriminate against children who are off a different race, gender, religion or children who have a disability. The setting should be suitable for children who have a disability. For example, if a child uses a wheelchair, there should be a wheelchair ramp for the child. Also, if a child is a different religion, you should make sure you know what they can and cannot do, eat, drink etc. D8 ?

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

4 star(s)

A good essay that demonstrates some research into different kinds of play. It is a little descriptive in places and seems to jump around a little.

It could be enhanced by the writer trying to build up explanations of why play is important and maybe trying to inter-link various types of play.
